I happened upon this site by accident and have a question for anybody. I have had an old wrench in my tool collection for years. It is about 6-1/2 inches long with the name Planet Jr in the center. No one has ever been able to tell me anything about it. Is it part of a tool kit that came with a tractor? I have a picture at: Any information will be appreciated.

Mr. Powers, I have viewed the picture of your wrench.What a treasure!It appears to pre-date any power machinery.In the 1800s and 1900s, Planet Junior produced vegetable and fieldcrop cultivators.The extensive line included horse and human powered implements.Provided with these tools was a wrench that fit all the nuts and bolts on the implement. I have -- and employ -- a Planet Junior No.17 wheelhoe which includes a wrench similar to yours.Overall length is 6 1/2 inches.The open and box ends are 5/8 inch.The small hammer face on the open end is for loosening dirt and attachments.My wrench is solid-cast with M23 part number.Your ornately cast tool may trace to the early days of Planet Junior manufacture in 1800s. Thanks for the great picture. Mark

Your wrench is probaly one that came with or bought with the tractor. I have a collection of 3 different Planet Jr. tractors and a hand operated plow. I purchased 2 wrenches this summer at shows and paid $8.00 and $10.00 for them to add to my collection. That seems to be the going price for them now. They seem to fit most of the fasterners on the equipment. Hope this answers your question.

If anyone has any information at all about the planet jr I would love to hear from you. I a planet jr, which I am hoping to use for planting this season, and i have no info on how to hook it up to the farmall. I can either use it on a cub or an A, whichever would work better. Please replay asap!
