ADJUSTABLE SOCKET- WRENCH.

UNITED STATES- MORTON H. REDENIBAUGH, OF TOLEDO, OHIO.
ADJUSTABLE SOCKET-WRENCH.
I Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 8, 1921.
Application filed March 31, 1920. Serial No. 370,083.
T 0 all whom it may concern Be it known that I, MORTON H. REDEN- BAUGH, of the city of Toledo, in the county of Lucas, in the State of Ohio, in the United States of America, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Adjustable Socket-Trenches, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in an adjustable socket wrench, which by construction affords a means wherebypersons using the same may the more readily and conveniently insert and adjustably use various sized sockets within the respective gripping and retaining jaws thereof while it is being used in compromising positions.
The objects of my invention are, firstly, to provide a more convenient and practicable adjustable socket wrench: secondly, to provide a more durable and reliable adjustable socket wrench: and thirdly, to provide a less complex and costly adjustable socket wrench.
I attain these objects by the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawing wherein like numerals refer to similarly constructed parts throughout the same:
In the drawings: Figure 1, isa perspective view of the invention artly broken away and in section at 2; and ig. 2 is a detail view showing the position of the parts when removing or inserting the socket.
This adjustable socket wrench is preferably constructed of an adequate main metal body portion referred to by numerals 1, 1 having a somewhat circular gripping and retaining jaw 4, 4 at each end of its body, of varied size, respectively formed as a part thereof, and constructed with an intake opening somewhat less than a semi-circle: said varied sized gripping and retaining jaws 4, 4 respectively permit the rolled-in insertion and secured holding of varied sized wrench sockets 5, 5 having jaws 6, 6, as shown in Fig. 2: said gripping and retaining jaws 4, 4 have each centrally depressed grooves 8, 8 about the interior of said jaws for the purpose of receiving and retaining centrally protruding surfaces along the exterior of said varied sized wrench sockets 5, 5 as shown by numerals 7 7 the several insertible wrench sockets have numerous adjustable latch plunger holding recesses 9, 9 constructed at the respective bases of their varied sizes: numerals 10, 1O refer to latch plungers which are pressed backward by securing thereto finger slide buttons 11, 11
for the purpose of disengaging said latch plungers from the plunger holding recesses 9, 9 in the respective wrench sockets: the rear ends of said latch plungers are respectively positioned within wrench body recesses 13, 13 and against forward compression springs 12, 12 retained therein: numerals 14, 14 refer to projected slits in the wrench body, along which finger slide buttons 11, 11 may be moved to disengage the foremost engaged position of said latch plungers 10, 10 when it is desired to release and adjust or remove the wrench sockets.
It will readily appear how that a person, who is desirous of adjusting this socket wrench for a compromise usage, can conveniently roll wrench sockets 5, 5 into gripping and retaining jaws 4, 4 by disengaging latch plungers 10, 10 on pushing backward the finger slide buttons 11, 11 secured thereto, along wrench body slits 14, 14 and that upon releasing the backwardly compressed latch plungers 10, 10 they will each be pushed forward into the wrench socket recesses 9, 9 for the purpose of securing the latter within the gripping and retaining jaws 4, 4 for all practical application: and how that numerous recesses in each socket will permit a readjustment of the sockets position when desired to be applied under compromising circumstances: and how that properly sized wrench sockets may be hastcjly replaced for the particular usage des1re What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is,
1. In a wrench, a body having curved jaws, a socket turnably mounted in the awe and having spaced gripping jaws, means between the socket and the curved jaws to allow of turning of the socket but to prevent lateral movement thereof, and means to hold the socket against turning, said curved jaws being of such length so that by turning the socket to aline the end of one of the curved jaws with the space between the gripping jaws the socket may be moved out of and into engagement with the curved aws.
2. In a wrench, a body having curved jaws, a socket turnably mounted in the jaws and having spaced gripping jaws, a rib borne by and integral with the periphery of the socket, said curved jaws being of integral formation throughout and formed with a groove between the side faces thereof to turnably receive the rib and a latch borne by the body and engageable in one of a plurality of openings formed in the socket periphery, said curved jaws being of such length so that by turning the socket to aline 5 the end of one of the curved'jaws with the space between the gripping jaws, the socket may be moved out of and into engagement with the curved j aws.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of 10 two subscribing witnesses.
MORTON H. REDENBAUGH.
