Odd wrench . . . what's it for?

Found this in a cabinet when I bought AS. What's it for?



Thanks!

Could be for the balance jacks. Looks about right for that purpose.

I haven't seen one of those in years, but I'm pretty sure it's a framistat reverberator, which functions much like the famous Rockwell Retro-encabulator. Go here for a better description:

YouTube - Rockwell Retro Encabulator

Enjoy.

Do you have an electric front jack? This looks like a manual handle when there is no power to the front jack. If this is the manual handle, there is a cover over the location on the jack that this will engage and you can turn it.

My guess, for what that is worth.

Had an opportunity to pick up two Retro Encabulators some time ago,... I've never looked back. Having the pair allows me to take one down for routine maintenance, So basically I'm never without
Encabulation. I sleep well, my friends.

I've been searching for one of those!


Those are a common Scataframer Spanner for adjusting the left hand reciprocating induction motor on a Plutonium PU-238 Space Demodulator.

But that particular one is a rare Whitworth Model with the 22 degree Rockwell Dumaflotcher attachment.

How much do you want for it?

Yes I have an electric jack. I bet that's it. I'll check tomorrow. Thanks!

This reminds me of the old 70's game show "The Liars Club."

This is the advanced model which replaces the stick with rope attached. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...+rope+attached

Instead of deframulating like the rope often did under stress, the Airstream Model 7B.3 with fully operational handle will bramify the Wellstone carquisator in half the time the crude stick with rope attached did. Be sure to operate within stated parameters or you may experience the Brinson Effect. Be sure to replace the batteries each April 1.

Definitely looks like a stabilizing crank, or on the other hand, when turned in the opposite direction could be a de-stabilizing crank...

You would think that more people would recognize a blinker fluid drain plug tool when they see one...
