An Antique Wrench Collection

Mark Giles' collectible wrenches tell story of antique farm equipment.

The square item at top is from a wooden John Deere sprayer used in western orchards. Note the JD logo in the middle. The circular item at bottom left covered a twine box on a John Deere corn or grain binder, helping provide tension on the twine. At bottom right is an inspection cover from a John Deere threshing machine. The cover could be lifted, allowing cleaning of the interior when blockages occurred.
