Baxter Patent Double End WrenchBaxter Patent Double End Wrench  This smaller one is unmarked.  It is OK.  The larger one is marked with the original patent granted in 1858, and also is stamped with a reissue date from 1870.  The patent was granted to a William Baxter of Newark NJ.  He had another patent in 1868 with the adjuster like the top wrench as well. Both work good.

Top . . . . . Good . . . . . .  $30.00     SOLD!!

Bottom . . . . .Good + . . . . . .  $50.00  SOLD!!






Rolls Royce Ltd. 3/16 - 1/4 Open End Spanner WrenchRolls Royce Ltd. 3/16 - 1/4 Open End Spanner Wrench  This interesting small wrench is in super condition.  It measures just 3" overall and is marked 3/16 - 1/4" in the back side, but what it fits is much bigger than that. I believe the sizes refer to the dia of the bolt and not the head size.  Clearly marked Rolls Royce Ltd. it is a hard to find and desirable little wrench.   Nice & Different!! 

Good +. . . . . .  $40.00     SOLD!!







Quick Adjust Lever WrenchQuick Adjust "Lever Wrench"   This is pictured in Schultz's book as #509  The handle is marked Pat Appl'd For and Lever Co NY.  It is more like a quick fine adjust than a simple quick adjust.  One might call it a dual adjust as well as you had to do the rough adjust by turning the nut, no quick feature there at all.  The fine adjust is activated by squeezing the lever It is actually a great idea when considering what most Crescent type wrenches are capable of doing to nuts.  That final 1/16 or 1/8" squeeze tight would make a difference.  Nice condition.

Good  +. . . . . .  $50.00      SOLD!!




Koeth Interchangeable Wrench / Plier Set in Box aka Koeth's Kombination KitKoeth Interchangeable Wrench / Plier Set in Box aka KKK or Koeth's Kombination Kit  There looks like one jaw might be missing.  The label is about unreadable. The wooden dividers between the jaws are gone.  These came with 6 different 2 piece jaw sets that could be put together to make 10 or more different tools.  Really quite well made.    Different & Nice!

Good +  . . . . . . $40.00      SOLD!!





Winchester # 1514 Double Open End WrenchWinchester # 1514 Double Open End Wrench  Nice.

Good + . . . . . .  $15.00  SOLD!!







Planet Junior K48 Cut-Out Plow WrenchPlanet Jr K 48 Cut-Out Plow Wrench  These small cut-out wrenches were for use with the small garden plows named Planet Junior that were offered.  This is the smallest size cut out wrench they made and far harder to find than most of the larger ones seen.  Different & Nice!

Good +  . . . . . . $35.00    SOLD!!






Newell Sanders Plow Co. # 24 WrenchNewell Sanders Plow Co. # 24 Wrench    Nice

Good +. . . . .  $25.00      SOLD!!









Standard Sliding Jaw Quick Adjust Nut WrenchStandard Sliding Wedge Jaw Quick Adjust Nut Wrench  This style wrench was Patented June 9th 1908.  Several companies went on to make different versions of this wrench.  This one is simply marked Standard.  Nice.

Good + . . . . . .  $15.00  SOLD!!





Patented 1888 Combo ToolPatented May 1 1883 Combo Tool  Erdman & Phillips of Philadelphia PA were granted the patent.  You can find it online.  I am not sure who the target user is, leather worker, upholstery, electrical, or anyone that wanted an all in one tool around. It has a number of different functions including a leather punch, hammer, tack puller, crimper, pliers, wrench, vice, and? The punch post is missing. I think the vise makes it.    Nice.

Good . . . . . .  $40.00        SOLD!!





Lowe's Patent Billings & Spenser Adjustable Nut WrenchBillings & Spenser Lowe's Patent Adjustable Nut Wrench  The idea here was to rough adjust it with the knurled nut on the bottom, and then get the final fit by squeezing the handle and the jaws would tighten a bit more.  A great idea, and a pretty rare little pocket wrench.  Nice!!   

Good +. . . . . .  $175.00         SOLD!!






Richards Mfg. Co. Wizard Ratcheting WrenchRichards Mfg. Co. "Wizard" Ratcheting Wrench  Joeseph Noyer of WA was granted two different patents for this design wrench.  This is the earlier and far rarer 1904 model patent # 777,389.  The second patent was granted in 1907.  An oddball design to tighten railroad track bolts.  This looks different from the patent drawing for the first model and was probably redesigned to open up the appeal.   Nice & Different!! 

Good +. . . . . .  $75.00  SOLD!!






Duplex Folding Head Crescent WrenchDuplex Swivel Head Crescent Wrench  This ad is for the unusual wrench on top. The name Duplex / Elizabeth NJ is on one side, and the manufacturer name, Braunsdorf Mueller on the other.  It is also stamped Pat Appl'd For.  Nice & Different!!  "The Anderson"Swivel Head Wrench  This ad is for the bottom wrench. "The Anderson" is on one side, and the patent date  6 - 23- 14 on the other.   The swivel feature works, but is difficult to make work.  More trouble that it is worth. 

Good + . . . . . .  $85.00    SOLD!!

Good + . . . . . .  $75.00    SOLD!!





Bay State Quick Adjust Nut Wrench Patented June 7th 1904Bay State Quick Adjust Nut Wrench Patented June 7th 1904   The logo on the top jaw of this unusual wrench says it is the Bay State on the other side has patent info on it . Many collectible wrenches have designs based on what seems to be a good idea, but in practice is a a lousy idea and worked poorly.  This one fits the bill nicely in a couple ways.  First there is no provision  to allow for the final adjustment that is almost always needed when using a nut wrench to avoid slippage and the resulting rounded nuts, or banged knuckles.  Perhaps quick adjust pipe wrenches could get away without this but not so much nut wrenches. Another problem with this and many of the other quick adjust wrenches that all the superior engineering and machining would come to a sticky grinding halt with just a few grains of dirt in the proper place.  The overall condition is nice, and the operation OK, noting that the lever actuated mechanism is a bit touchy.  Seldom seen.   A good One!!  

Good  . . . . . .$75.00       SOLD!




Square w/ BevelUnusual Quick Adjust Nut Wrench / Hammer From the marking on the head I assume it is foreign. Nice condition. Different & Nice enough.

Good  . . . . . .$95.00      SOLD!!







Stephens Patent Wrench4 Different Size Stephens Patent Wrenches   The patent # is 943757 and it was granted on Dec. 21, 1909.   Each one is marked with the patentees name on one side and the date on the other.  Each is marked with a size.  From a time when the called off size had nothing to do with the size of the head of the bolt or nut.  The heads ratchet from side to side, and each works although the springs on a couple are weaker than others.  All do work though. I read that 6 sizes were available.  Here is a good start to complete the collection, or buy one to fill a hole.  Different

Good + . . . . . .  $125.00        SOLD!!







Universal Cut Out WrenchUniversal Cut out Wrench   No cracks or damage.    Nice!! 

Good + . . . . . .  $35.00        SOLD!!







Ely Patent Combo Tool WrenchEly Patent Combo Tool Wrench  This combination hatchet, wrench hammer, cutter, puller and more is marked with the 1889 patent date shown.  The finished product has little too do with the original idea.  This guy must have had a lot on his mind as he added about a dozen new ideas to this version.  Check out the compound lever action he used.  It is the first example I have ever had or seen.  A hard to find combo wrench that I wish had teeth in the looped handle so I could call it a corn sheller as well.

Good . . . . . . $195.00      SOLD






Stanley #1 Wagon Wheel Wrench Stanley #1 Wagon Wheel Wrench   This unusual design wrench / brace was designed with one purpose in mind.  To affix the outer metal ring to wagon wheels.  This would fit over the rim and get the rivet or bolt from the top and hold the bottom or nut as you turned the crank to tighten.  Two or more tools in one.  It was probably the introduction of rubber tires that made this a Stanley rarity shortly after they bought original maker out.  These are usually found unmarked, but this one is a marked Stanley.  It is a rare tool.

Good . . . . . . $175.00      SOLD






 IHC Cutout Implement Wrench IHC Cutout Implement Wrench This is a tough one to find, and this one is in exceptionally nice condition with absolutely no damage to the letters and it still has what I believe to be original finish or black paint on it.  It is marked 770E on the back side near the smaller head.  No rust, and no pitting on this one.  You will like it.

Good . . . . . . $375.00      SOLD





8 Inch Anderson Turnmore Adjustable Nut Wrench Patented 19068" Anderson Turnmore Adjustable Nut Wrench Patented 1906   This example is marked on the handle.  Some were and some were not.  There is a lot of action crammed into a small area, and the design left the adjusting screw almost too hard to get at.  Different and unusual. 

Good  . . . . . .$45.00      SOLD!

Patented Crescent Style Adjustable Plier / Wrench Patented Crescent Style Adjustable Plier / Wrench This Plier / wrench appears to be in very nice condition and looks great.  For those who were in a bigger hurry than the speed the standard crescent wrench offered.  Different and hard to find. 

Excellent. . . . .$125.00             SOLD!




Frich Hi Wheel Bicycle Wrench Frich Hi Wheel Bicycle Wrench The first letter on the name of this wrench is hard to read, but on the other side the Hi Wheel bicycle logo is clear as day.  A great wrench that has seen use, but is nice..

Patented Combination Alligator Wrench / PliersPatented Combination Alligator Wrench / Pliers / Hammer   The date March 31 1908 is on the side.  It is in Schultz's book as Figure 255 and says the patent is March 31 1908. The patent was actually granted to Norman McAslan of Iowa on July 19th 1909 and the patent # is 964532.  He called it a combination Tool.

Duffy Patented Pipe Wrench   This one is clearly marked and hails from PA.  It has a weird head design, and I would bet it would snap right off if really put to the test, but back then that was not the point.  It was to try and produce or invent the better wrench.  A great example of an idea gone wild.
