Dean collected mostly farm wrenches but is moving and can't take his wrenches along. Evan collects mostly adjustable wrenches and many other things. Over the years he's been a great ambassador for the wrench collecting hobby as has displayed his wrenches and given presentations several times. Evan and his collections have also been featured several times in local newspapers and magazines. Evan's garage is full from the floor to the ceiling and his wife says it's time to start downsizing.

Auction has 1040 lots with 2100 items. Highlights of the auction include several rare and desirable cutout type wrenches including a Casaday, Bradley Wonder, Zenith, two variations of the Comet wrench, Ames, etc: large selections of silo type wrenches, over 200 buggy and wagon wrenches, nearly every Deering Type wrench in the book (and a couple that aren't): more neat oddball and orphan wrenches than we ever had to catalog; numerous adjustable wrenches including a type one Vise-Grips and one transactional type not seen before, large grouping of Baxter double ended wrenches and numerous other adjustable wrenches. Also listed are several Winchester, KeenKutter and other hardware company wrenches, several brass, etc. non-sparking wrenches and other tools: implement tool boxes, oil cans, drill box lids and several small advertising items.
