View Full Version : Windage Screw Tool
Had misplaced this in my shop, thought someone might like a look see.
Thats pretty cool and I've not seen one before. I'm guessing if you were building/rebuilding/repairing 03s all day, that tool would be a lifesaver. thanks for sharing the photo.
Make that Walden. Does your's have a number to the left of the manufacturer info? The SA2822 appears hand stamped.
Really makes removal of the rear sight a snap.
Will this tool fit the early smaller diameter windage screw Too ?
Only fits the later windage screw.
Make that Walden.
The factory was on Shrewsbury Street, near the top of the hill above the lake (Quinsigamond). Drove by it a gozillion times when growing up (1950's and early 60's)
Heres a early type on the R.H. bottom

Really makes removal of the rear sight a snapWALDEN is correct. Thanks Pete.. Yes the nbrs. are to the left of the manufacturer The name Walden is spelled with a large W and the remainder of the name under an extended "wing of the W" as is Worchester. Nbrs appear to be in a straight line. If it was hand stamped ,they did a great job. On the opposite side of the name Walden is a crude U S done with an electropen (sp) not a vibrator.

The one I got had has the first 2 stamped much deeper than the other numbers making it appear larger, and the last 2 is a broken die with the bottom left of the 2 missing. No U.S. on the reverse side.
I'll never forget the first time I used one of these tools in the early 1980's. I ruined the knurling on a windage knob. After that, I tried wrapping the knob in tape and even very thin leather - still left more marring and wear than I care for. I never figured out how to get around that. The tool still resides in one of my tool boxes, but I haven't used it since the 80's.
