Unidentifiable Wrench
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:54:13 PM »
Hey guys. Id help is needed on this one. It is pitted over any writing. Reminds me of Bemis and Call style.

It's a 10" wrench.

Adjusts by holding the bottom jaw while turning the metal section just below it.

Hard to post pictures. The ipad is not forum friendly.

A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.

That's it! Bill you are the man!

Hewet Union Wrench

Wow, patented in 1864. Pretty old.

Two mfrs. of these are listed there. W.L. Miller of NY,NY  and Fowle & Co. of NY, NY..


Well, I can just barely, BARELY see through the pitting several crusty letters that would indicate Fowle & Co..

I see a more legible example here:

And some auction listing examples in 8.5" and 12" here:
