More specifically, the invention proposes the y construction of a dual wrench for removing dual wheelsof the Budd type, and more particularly for removing the nuts and bolts of theseyvheels.

It is proposed to characterize the dual wrench by a rod having a socket opening on its front end forengaging a complementarily formed projection on the bolt in a manner for permitting to which this' dual wrench is adapted to be applied.

The dual wrench for removing dualwheelsof I.,the Budd type is particularly adapted for this bolt to be held against rotation, or rotated as desired. y

A further object of this invention is the 'provision of a tubular member rotatively mounted on said rod and having a socket opening on its front end for engaging the nut in a, manner to permit the nut to be tightened or..lo'osened relative to the bolt while the bolt is being held against rotating.

A further object of this invention is the provision of a ratchet controlled handle mounted-onl said tubular member in a manner to permit said tubular member` to bezcqnveniently turned in one` direction or thetvv other`,for tightening or loosening the gritar' Still further the invention proposes the provision of a means for. holding the tubulary mem-- ber in various extended longitudinal adjusted rotated positions upon said rod in a manner to `permit the socket opening of said tubular member to be engagedupon said nutwhile the socket member of said rod is engagingl` the projection of s saidvv bolt.

For further comprehension of the invention,

andoi.' the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various` novel features of the invention are more particularly setz'I forth; In the accompanying drawing forming a material part o f this disclosure: A

The head l0? is formed at one end of the bolt I0 and the reduced projection lob is formed at the other end thereof.' A nut i i preferably having-a hexagonal periphery is adapted to be passed over the square'pro'je'cvtion` Illb -and threadedly' engaged@ withv 'thel threaded shank of the bolt-I0.

" The y.dual wrench, according to this inventionj` includes a rod I2 having a square socket open-rz' ing I3 atene end which is adapted to' beenf-"j 'gaged overv the square'proieetionwlbof the bolt lc. This rod lz 1s fcrmedjqfarso11d-1hieee of metal and at its other end is provided 4withian enlarged head I4. This head il is provided-'with an opening WthrOught whicha rod I5 isadapted to be passed in a manner to permiththerodgtqbe kconveniently heldagainst rotatingfor- Ao thesquare 'ket' 'opening I3 is engaged uPOn the squareprojection l0, ofthe bolt I0.

Similarly.:the `wrench is'provided with almeans for engaging the 4nut li end .consistsof atubula r vmember VIl.. 'Ihis tubularmember Il,v adjacent the end vof the rod j I 2 'which .is formed with the square socket opening, I3, ,isfformedpwitn aA hexagonal socket opening I l'which is adapted to 4'be engaged overthe l'fnut -ll 'while thesquare socket opening 'I3 is engaged upon .the square projection Nb. The operativeposition of'these socket openings is illustrated in Fig. 53 in which the bolt I and the nut Il are-shownimd'ot and dash lines. A means is provided for' turning the tubular `member in one direction or the other for tightening orloosening .the nut Il l.relative to the bolt l0. This means includes a wheel i! havinga dual set o f ratchet teeth, One set of ratchet ,teeth I!! extend in one 'direction and `the other set of teethfb extend. in the other direction.`

A means is .provided for removably but nonrotatively supporting the wheel I 9 upon the tubular member I1. This means comprises a dovetailed projection |9 formed on the wheel I9 which engages a complementary dove-tailed cutout I1' extended inwards `from the end oi' the tubular member I1. A portion of the metal I1 removed from the tubular member I 1 for formis desired to remove the wheel I9 itis merely necessary to remove the set screw 20 and the piece of metal I1 and slip the wheel oil.' the end of the tubular member` |15.

A handle portion 2| is cooperative with the lwheel I9 for permitting the tubular member I1 to be turned. 'Ihis handle 2| is formed oi' adjacent halves 2 I* which are held together by means v of `a. plurality of screws 22.l The top portion of that part of the handle which engages around the tubular member I'I is provided with a pair of oppositely directed pawls 23 and 24 which are adapted to cooperate with the oppositely directed teeth I9 and I9b of the wheel I9. These pawls 28 and 24 are pivotally supported upon a bolt 25 and are adapted to be selectively engaged with the teeth |9 and I9.

The pawl 2l is cooperative with the teeth I9l for permitting the tubular member I1- to be turned clockwise and the pawl 23 is cooperative with the teeth I9!J lior permitting the tubular member I1 to be turned counter-clockwise. When the pawls 23 and 24 are pivoted to the inoperative position they are adapted to be main tained out of contact with the teeth I9* and I9b by means of pins 28 which extend from Vtheir respective side walls oi' the handle 2|.

A means is provided for holding the rod I2 and the tubular member I1 in various longitudinal adjusted rotative positions with relation to each other for. permitting the square socket opening I8 to be engaged upon the square projection IIIb and the hexagonal socket opening I8 upon the nut II regardless of the relative position oi' the nut I I and the square projection Illb. This means comprises an enlarged portion I2l formed on the rod |2 adjacent the free end of the tubular member I1. This enlargement I2* is formed with a plurality of circular grooves 21 extending completely therearound. A screw 28 is passed through the end of the tubular member I1 and is adapted to engage the grooves 21 for rotatively non-slidably supporting the tubular member l1 upon the rod I2. However, a means is provided for preventing the screw I8 to be moved from one groove 21 to another groove 21 to permit the longitudinal positions oi' the tubular member I1 and the rod I2 to be shifted.

'This means comprises al plurality of connecting passageways 21l extended `between the grooves 21. Springs 29 are extended across the passageways 21* on both sides thereof for retaining the screw 28 in position within its groove 21.

When it is desired to shift the position of the tubular member I1 and the rod I2 it is merely necessary to align the screw 28 with the springs 29 and force the same through the connecting passageways 21n to the desired groove 21 for holding the tubular member against further 1ongi' tudinal movement with relation to the rod I2.

These springs 29 are extremely ilexible for permitting ilexing when the screw is moved from one groove to the other, but are rigid enough to `of the rod |1'in aligned positions with the passageways 29. Likewise, the end of the tubular member I1 is formed with a mark 3| in aligned position with the screw 28 and which is adapted to be selectively aligned with eitherl of the marks 30-for complementarily aligning the screws 28 with either o1' the diametrically opposite passages 21 formed on the rod I2.

'I'he operation of this invention is as follows:

The square socket opening I3 is engaged upon the square projection |91 of the nut of the bolt I0 and the triangular bracket I6 is rested on the ground or other surface for maintaining the rod in a horizontal position. `The mark 8| is aligned with either of the marks 80 for permitting the screw 28 to be shifted into a proper groove 21 for engaging the socket opening I8 of the tubular member I'I upon the nut II. held against rotating by means 'of the rod I8 and the tubular member I1 is rotated by means of the handle 2| for tightening or loosening the nut re1- ative to the bolt I0. To cause the tubular member I1 to be turned in a proper direction, to accomplish either the tightening or loosening, the proper pawl 23 or 24 is engaged with its respective teeth of the Wheel I 9 for properly locking the handle 2| to the tubular member |1.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood' that I do not limit myself to the precise constructionA herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modiilcations coming within the scope of the invention as dened in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I" larged portion, and a screw extending from said.
