Hey does anyone know where i can find info on Bonney tools? I inherited a box of tools from my grandfather and alot of them are Bonney. The others include S-K (which i have heard and read are decent tools), Indestro Super, Wright, and Wizard brand tools. Only info i can find are with Wright and S-K tools. Anyone have any websites or insight on these tools? i have some broken ones and was curious if there is a lifetime warranty like the S-K and Wright tools have. Thanks!!!

Those tools are like the old Packards, a gone but not forgotten quality automobile. Their slogan was "Ask The Man Who Owns One" Guess you could liken that to tools like your Grandfather's. Hang on to them, use them with the knowledge they are gone but not forgotten. Great tools. I worked in a body shop while in school and an old timer body man had them.

Yeah my grandfather was a mechanic for Chrysler for 30 some years and every year they gave away tools as an award for being a master mechanic. I have a slew of Bonney tools anywhere from socket sets to nut drivers to wrenches to even screwdrivers. Some of the S-K and Indestros are probably vintage 50's. I have this one socket wrench that was made before they had stamping. It was engraved by the factory by hand. That thing is ancient!!!
