Blue Point Supreme Open End Wrench series

Blue Point Supreme Open End Wrench series

I discovered a number of things about this series.  There seems to be 4 periods in this run with three structural differences:

  1. The rib down the center is filled in and not slotted in the 1930s and early 1940s.  These seem to be heavier and cruder than the later versions. I think the original Blue Point Open Ends, were replaced by the Supreme series. There is an overlap from 1937 to 1942.
  2. The rib became recessed and raised; this ran from head to head and was the same width. This started in the mid 1940s and seems to have ended in the early 1950s
  3. The rib is radiuses out in the late 1940s and though the end of the run.
  4. The Blue Point name disappeared and the Snap on name appeared in a different style on the LTA tappet wrenches. The VS series of  Open End Wrenches seems to have been the replacement for the Supreme series

 

These series seems to have ended in the mid to late 1950. There seem to be huge numbers of these out there. The most popular sizes range from the S-1012 to the S-2830 3/8 to 7/8. (Probably the result of the set sales) The S- 2834, and the larger sizes (over an inch) seem rarer.

In the early period there are a lot of variation in tappet wrenches. These are listed out. They settled out into the LTA series.
