hi max,

I saw your mail and was interested to see some responses mostly because all my guesses about dating campy tools are mostly unconfirmed.. mostly my observations are concerning the non-frame tools as i haven't seen too many of the threading/cutting tools.. does anyone know when the frame tools were first introduced ?

like you, i have noticed some finish difference amongst the tools and i suspect the duller and rougher finish to be an earlier variation (although i do have a very early t-wrench which has a rather shiny chrome-like finish).. another inconsistency i've noticed is a 'made in italy' marking; i think this was a later addition (80s?) to tools and did not appear on all versions of the same tool.. maybe to satisfy some international trade standard ?

other than that, details vary by specific tool; some had minor design or construction changes over time and others varied only slightly in the markings..
