The folks on the G.503 have really good info on WWII tools...and AAF specific marked tools...or at least contracted by the AAF
here is a small selection of AAF specifically contracted by the AAF, that I have found locally... with exception to the WF-26 socket...that was acquired in trade
Plomb tools stamped their tools WF-xx to indicate a tool made under contract for Wright Field
Wright Tools company (not be confused with Wright Field) marked their tools AC (Air Corp?) with the year made
I can not say for 100 percent certainty that the tools were issued to AAF units exclusively, however one could make an argument that since the tools were contracted by the Army Air Force, they would have been primarily assigned/issued to AAF units...
Very cool to have tools that may...or may not have been used on the old WWII planes...all of these tools have been found in the local Dover area...home to Dover Army Air Field...test base for air to ground rockets, sub hunting, P-47 transition training etc....during WWII
