Vehicle Wrench Patentee: John A. Miller - St. Louis MO Granted:1890-12-20

Corresponding U.S. patent 445,451 was granted Jan. 27, 1891. Both patent dates were noted prominently in advertising. Corresponding British patent GB-189104362 was registered March 11, 1891. Malleable iron "carriage wrenches" in a range of sizes were produced based on this patent. Miller also advertised a ratchet wrench.

US Patent: 711,422

Wrench Patentee: Charles E. Greenlief - Newton IA Granted:1902-10-14

The offset in the handle places the center of the "T" in line with the socket. A spring clip on the socket allows allows interchangeability, and the sockets can face toward or away from the handle. SUCCESS Ratchet Cylinder Tooth Wrench ads starting August 1902 show this form of wrench head. The ratchet portion is noted, but is not described in detail; it probably is a refinement of the J.P. Johnson patent no. 601,146.

Drop hammer Patentees: William H. J. Fitzgerald - Braintree MA , Reginald P. Fitzgerald - Braintree MA Granted:1933-08-29

The present invention comprises certain improvements upon the drop hammer construction disclosed in Patent No. 1,722,506, Henning G. Sahlin, granted July 30, 1929."
