US Patent: 1,570,586

Wrench Patentee: Joseph E. Kenerson - Cliftondale MA Granted:1926-01-19

The basic principle in this patent is side lugs to prevent lateral movement of the adjustable jaw. The drawings show a pipe wrench modification of the TRIMO nut wrench of the period; the specifications state the configuration would apply to pipe or nut wrenches. Kenerson's Jan. 4, 1927 patent 1,613,229 shows a further refinement of the "extended length frame with side lugs" for a pipe wrench in the drawings, although that patent is for the "nut guards."

Distinguishing between prophetic and working examples in a patent application

 Distinguishing between prophetic and working examples in a patent application

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has published a notice in the Federal Register reminding applicants that patent applications must properly present examples in a manner that clearly distinguishes between prophetic examples that describe predicted experimental results and working examples that report actual experimental results.The distinction should be clear for purposes of the written description and enablement requirements and to comply with the applicant’s duty of disclosure. The notice also sets forth best practices for distinguishing prophetic and working examples.
