Manufacturer markings are the easiest indicator.

WW2 rods were marked O'Hare or JAM. I have a complete JAM kit.

Dave,

I have read that the JAM rods, along with any other rods bearing the 5564102 drawing number are post-war. Is this incorrect?

I know the numbered ones were post war, Thought JAM were end of war. Could be wrong.

Sorry David. I thought all JAM rods had the 5564102 drawing number. Are there JAM marked rods with no post war drawing number? I have only seen JAM listed as a post war rod with O'Hare, U.H. Co, and USCB being the only WWII production rod manufacturers.

Luke, I am only collecting O'Hare now, pretty much sold all others. National Needle screwdrivers are tough to find also. They were 1944 made.
