DIN 895 Wrenches

#1 Post by Wes Bender » Mon Jan 01, 2018 2:53 pm

Down in the depths of my stash are these four wrenches. Anyone have any idea where they might be from? The 17mm end of the top wrench is angled upward slightly.

DIN895 wrenches, though a different combination, were in the tool set of my 1971 2002 BMW.
it might provide at least a general dating.

Thanks Harry. I'm pretty sure they aren't for any Porsche. I thought maybe BMW or possibly M-B, although most M-B wrenches have their name on them. I know that many BMW wrenches were made by Heyco, but these don't have a manufacturer's name on them. What you see in the pictures is all the info I've got. The reverse side has only the size markings. It's a puzzlement. I'd like to see them eventually reunited with the proper tool kit.
