BONNEY BASICS

I have a Bonney ratchet set with a warranty, and I know that the company was bought out by the Triangle Tool Group. I have been unable to contact the company and would like to know if the warranty is still valid.

According to a writer on the discussion board of the Yesterday's Tractor Web site, Bonney Tools became part of the Triangle Corporation (Utica, Bonney and Diamond), which was purchased by Cooper Tools in 1992. It discontinued the Bonney brand in the mid to late '90s, and there is no longer a warranty on the tools. If you would like replacements, Bonney tools are often listed on auction Web sites such as eBay.com.

My husband was given a Century quick fix wire feed welder as a gift. The listing number is 343L E17102, model 117-034. He didn't get a manual with it. Is there any way to get one of these?
