Pullman Tool Kit

I have been researching tool kits for Pullman Automobiles.  I have been able to determine a lot of the tools included in a tool kit from a list in the 1911 Pullman Model O parts catalog.  My question is, the catalog lists a No. 727 End Wrench and a No. 29 End Wrench.  In searching for those tools I came across several makes of the no. 727 wrench and they are 9/16" on one end and 5/8" on the other.  I have had less luck with the No. 29 wrench but did come across one manufacture who has a no. 29 wrench and it is 3/4" on one end and 13/16" on the other.  Does anyone know if those were common wrench numbers of the time period and all makes would have been the same or if it is more likley and internal Pullman part number?1625017199_ToolboxList1copy.jpg.c420892d82b40ad39f6337a59b00cdb2.jpg777224071_ToolboxList2copy.jpg.c0218ea63144809f305389c22cc0dbc2.jpg

"Fairmount Tool and Forging was founded in 1917 in Cleveland, Ohio, and became well known as a contract manufacturer for automobile tool kits."

If I had to guess, I would say the numbers are Fairmount part numbers.

Maybe someone has the Fairmount Tool catalog from that time period?

Here's an ad from 1918

If Fairmont wasn't founded until 1917 that would make it kinda difficult for them to have provided tools for an automobile made in 1911.
