Hello, Is this an orphan from a set, or does it have a specific use? Could not find a match. Thanks, Lou

I have a Craftsman wrench like that. It is marked BATTERY WRENCH.

Hello, Guys. Thanks for the replies. My wrench has a smooth oval shank, and the openings are 5/8 - 11/16. Aren't those sizes too big for a battery post? Thanks, Lou

There certainly are a lot of different styles of Lectrolite box end wrenches.  I have a grouping of several sizes shapes and styles.  This one (3/8" x 7/16") has a smooth oval handle like Lou's, but is offset.  It's chrome plated but a bit rough, and is stamped Lectrolite Corp.

Compare marking styles to those shown in Alloy Artifacts ( http://alloy-artifacts.org/lectrolite-corp.html#history ) for LECTROLITE products.

Hello, Stan. Thanks for the reply. AA is my first check before I put a wrench on here. I could not find a match as far as label, length, shank style. The photo Al sent matches the label, but his looks like a 90° offset, where mine looks to be more of an angled head, rather than offset. I will keep digging. Regards, Lou
