I'm starting a new thread even though some of this info has been posted previously. The other thread was a "coming soon" thread, but I'm happy to say that all of the items are now available. The item is the hydrant spanner / wrench that Max carries on the back of his belt. These are vintage items and are nearly impossible to find, and expensive if you do find them.

Karol and I have created a replica from an original. More detail about the making of them is available in the "coming soon" thread, but here is a pic:

Also available now is the pouch for carrying the spanner. This item is not available through me or Karol, but is being made by a vendor I found on Etsy.com. They are called "Carol's Country Store". Here is a link to their store page:

Note: You'll need to contact them via Etsy as it is a special order item that they make to order (so they probably won't have one listed for sale on their site).

Important - This was not the way the pouch looked when it arrived to me. I needed to cut the leather on the flap so that it would more closely resemble the item from the movie. I also dyed the leather myself. I have sent pics of what I did back to the vendor and told them that they may want to consider cutting their future pouches to look like mine. And they may want to offer a dyed black version. I ordered a batch of four of these for fans and modified all of them as above. They are all spoken for. But I don't make any money off of the pouch so I've decided to let fans order from the vendor directly from now on.

This pouch is not exactly film accurate. But it's very close and is inexpensive. I gave the folks at Carol's Country Store the best instructions I could, but they had not made an item like this before. This is the best replica of this pouch available at this time and it is very good. If you want something different or better, feel free to work with another vendor and let us know how you make out.

Ordering instructions:
For the resin spanner, contact me or Karol. They cost $30 each, which includes the hand painting for that weathered steel look. Shipping is extra.

For the pouch, contact Carol's Country Store on Etsy. Tell them you want the Mad Max wrench pouch. You'll have to find out from them whether they are going to offer the item cut like mine and pre-dyed. I would assume that the price for this pouch would be $15 or less.
