Allis Tools (update 3/11/13)

Recommended Posts

All of the Allis tools were made by Bonney, including the screwdrivers. A buddy of mine has the "Tool Shed" display shelf and its fully stocked. Here is a link to it:

Michael, do you have any old display items at your dealership you could post pitcures of? Hose clamp displays, sweep racks, clocks, anything original with the AC name on it.

I am "Picker" and have never seen any Allis tools around my parts and I live less then 7 miles from the old Allis C plant located in West Allis Wi.C

id="quote">I don't know what happened to all of them but they are scarce. The tools were available from the mid 1970s up to when the ag division ceased operation in 1985. Many dealers had the whole tool shed display. I only know of about 3 complete tool shed displays. My buddy has one, FredInPA (on unoffical Allis) has one, and there is one in the AC museum in Paris IL.

Chris-there were 7-8 different northeast Missouri AC dealers w/i 35mi radius of our farm in those days but I only remember few tool displays. I remember the wrenches displayed at couple but I would bet most here didn't order them just as most didn't display mini bikes, terra tigers, chain saws or gt attachments. Nice pickpr8
