Nice collection of 3/4" drive sockets. The 1 3/16" is a real odd ball to find in any brand. Good luck on your hunt.

Picked up another N-60 ratchet with a 1945 date code and AC stamping. In lieu of an actual catalog or evidence to the contrary I'm beginning to believe that the N-62 was made post war. All of the N-62s that I've seen are stamped 45+ as the earliest date. Anybody seen an N-62 with a -45 or earlier stamping?

Many thanks to mudbox, too, for helping me move the needle up the scale with the addition of a 25/32" socket and a spare U-11 universal.

I picked up this socket at a garage sale today. I almost dismissed it as post-war because it was chromed/shiny. On closer inspection it turned out to be a 41+ 1-1/4" 41-W-3029-10 socket. First Wright tool I've found with a marking prior to 1942.
