Tools, spares and repair gear


Recommended Posts

In the sales brochures of the time lists are given of tools and equipment supplied with a vehicle. I assume much the same was supplied to those purchased by the War Dept.



Spanners are easy to identify, especially Leyland as they are marked with the Company's name. What was the design and form of other items ie. the jack.

We have a Woden trade mark jack and question as to its period of use. Searching the history of Woden (the trade name for Steel Nut and Joseph Hampton Ltd) lists the manufacture of lifting jacks as being manufactured in 1914. Were they supplied to a particular vehicle manufacturer, or for use with field artillery or the like. Is this one of that period or for a latter war?

A search of jack on this site continually brings up the administrators name!
