Description:
The major focus of the patent is the reversible jaw element with two wearing faces, and the related jaw structure allowing for inserting replaceable jaw elements. The patent appears with a "Stillson" type jaw in a pipe wrench produced by Whitman & Barnes. The concept, as refined in design patent D28,487, was used on a movable jaw structure in a later Whitman and Barnes pipe wrench.
