Each one has "CORNWELL" stamped on the shaft.
I see that Cornwell has been making automotive tools for a long time (1920 or before).
Each has a trapezoidal face set at about 45 degrees to the shaft.
The longest one is about 7 inches.
Anyone know what they are used for?

I was told years ago that they are offset screwdrivers for tight spots . I'd like to hear other thoughts though.....

Thanks guys. I knew I could count on you.
Must be an older edition of the Cornwell catalog.
Looks like I have four of the five part numbers listed.

Mark, I would guess the catalog to be 1960???
All of the drill motors listed in the catalog are, all aluminum bodies and key chucks.
