Cool old wrenches saved from the trash, some stand out. A few are odd sizes (31/32, 25/32 and 19/32) I'm surprised that many are not marked. I would like to display in the future. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

25/31? WTH??? Are you sure it's not 25/32? That's not even a British Imperial or Whitworth standard.

What system divides a unit of measure into an odd number?

I see the one labelled 31/32, not 31/31.

If you're looking to display them, a shadow box frame with some of the nicest/unique ones wired to the back would be a nice shop display. Or if you could find an older style tool box drawer, that installed on the wall with the wrenches arranged in it would be cool.

How about a shadow box with pegboard as a backing, and attach the wrenches with very narrow zip ties? They're available in all sorts of colors, to either blend in with the color of the tools, or contrast, whichever you choose. The pegboards will allow you to experiment with a variety of arrangements and mounting positions without scarring up the backing.

I made a shadow box out of some 100 year old wood flooring and used tie wire to hold in place.

I built a shadow box and a display board, which will be changed to a shadow box set up, for the ‘46 and ‘37 truck tool kits.
