Mechanics Tools set was the set the unit mechanic would have issued to
him. Specifically most Tables of Organization and Equipment authorized
every automotive mechanic in the unit one of these sets. This was the
mechanics "personal" tool set and they would also have access to
the more extensive (and different) tools of the Unit Sets (which were
shared among all of the mechanics in the unit.
The scans are from Army Service Forces Catalogue ORD 6 SNL G-27 Section 2
Tools, Maintenance for Repair of Motor Vehicles Section 2 - Tool-Sets
(Common), Specialists' and Organizational dated 1 July 1944. There are
other late war versions of the ORD 6 SNL G-27 but I do not think they
differed substantially from what is shown here. For an early war set there
is very little information available at this time.
The 1/4 socket set
shown in the manual is a Durochrome brand one. BUT of course they weren't
the only brand used.
This is from change
1 dated 16 February 1945 note the change to the General Mechanics' set.
