WRENCH.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 24:, 1911.

Application filed May 12, 1910. Serial No. 560,896.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LEANDER Bron, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kahlotus, in the county of Franklin, State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wrenches; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to wrenches and has special reference to a folding wrench.

The principal object of the invention is to improve and simplify the general construe tion of wrenches of this character.

IVith the above and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and specifically set forth in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings, like characters of reference indicate like parts in the several views, and :Figure l is a view showing the wrench closed. Fig. 2 is a view showing the wrench open. Fig. 3 is a sectional View on the line 33 of Fig. 2.

This wrench includes a handle comprising a U-shaped bar, the bight of which is indicated at 10. The extremities of the legs of this bar have their inner surfaces 11 parallel and the portions 12 which lie between these extremities and the bight 10 are outwardly bowed. The wrench is further provided with a head having a jaw 13 the outer periphery of which is adapted to fit closely between the body portions 12 when the wrench is folded. This head is provided with a neck 14: the sides of which are parallel and which fits snugly between the inner faces 11 of the legs. This head is pivoted between said legs by means of a rivet 15, the rivet being so positioned that the distance from the center of the rivet to the end of the neck is greater than the distance from the center of the rivet to either face of said neck.

At 16 is a U-shaped bar of spring metal having its bight portion 17 so formed that it lies flat against the face of the neck 14: when the neck is in either of the positions assumed when folded or extended. The extremities of the legs of this spring member pass through suitable openings 18 formed in the bight 10 of the handle and are there securely riveted. The head when folded inward fits snugly between the arms 12 and may be folded outward by pressing against the head with the thumb and turning the head on its pivot until it assumes the position indicated in Fig. 2. In either the folded 0r unfolded positions the bight 17 of the spring member rests against the head and holds it yieldably in such position.

There has thus been provided a simple and eflicient device of the kind described and for the purpose specified.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new, is

In a wrench, a handle comprising a U- shaped bar having the inner surfaces of the extremities of its legs parallel and the por tions of the legs between said extremities and the bight of the U outwardly bowed, a head having a jaw provided with an outer periphery adapted to fit closely between the bowed portions of the legs of the handle, a neck on said head having parallel sides and being pivoted between the extremities of said legs, and a Ushaped bar of spring metal having its bight portion bearing flatly against said neck and the extremities of its legs secured in the bight portion of said handle.

In testimony whereof, I aflix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.

LEANDER RICE.
