John Penney of Mechanics Falls, ME, started out making these wrenches before he switched to making the ornate Dirigo Jig Saw.

A very rare wrench; the Davistown Museum had one of the few known examples and it was stolen (we didn't do it). Mark is faint but legible.

Weston's Patent. Marked "Weston's Patent", "England France", and "Timmins & Sons." The jaw simply slides shut, and then the lower jaw tilts slightly to hold it in place. Richard Timmins & Sons was a prominent Birmingham toolmaker beginning around 1810; the firm offered a couple of adjustable wrenches marked as having been patented by William T. Weston, but there's no record of a patent for this design, which dates to the 1880s. 8", steel handle, cleaned.

Most of the output of the Walton Wrench Co. of Girard, PA, was based on Phillips' 1871 patent, but discarded the interchangeable jaws that the patent featured, retaining the screw adjustment feature and the jaws set at an angle to the handle. Most Walton wrenches, like this one, are unmarked. Schulz No. 419. 13", wooden handle, overall dinging but no damage, jaws slightly sprung.

Patented by Frederick Farrar of Boston in 1885. There's no record of who made it; to the best of our knowledge this is the only example and it has no markings. The head can be turned to different angles and is locked with a thumb operated mechanism that doesn't work very well; the jaws are closed with two wheels mounted on the sides. 13" long with wood handle.
