KGB-Manufactured date??

Post by mhartline » Tue Jun 11, 2019 10:29 am

Just purchased a bucket of Fitter 35. Julian date or stamped date on back is W21416A. Anyone know the manufactured date?

I copied an old post from KGB. Here's how you convert the manufacture date code:

"Check the date code. It is on the side of the bucket and should look something like D12852A. That code is an example.

The last number on the right is the year 2 = 2012). The 3 numbers justbto the left of that is the Julian date code (1 through 365).

285 = October 12, 2012."

So in this case your date for W21416A is as follows:

5/21/2016

We haven’t used Julian date codes for at least 2 years, maybe 3. If you just purchased that bucket, I suggest taking it back to the store where you purchased it and ask for a fresh (newer date code) bucket.
