Description:
Drop forging process patent showing die forms and successive stages to form a movable "monkey wrench" jaw (only first and final steps shown in edited drawing). Jaw forms conforming to the design in this patent appear on P. S. & W. "Solid Bar" and similar screw wrenches produced by P. S. & W. in the early 20th Century. (See patent no. 553,050 for the "solid bar" design which dictated the "split" feature of this movable jaw.)

Parallel patent 684,489 describes a second method for forming movable wrench jaws where two forged pieces are welded.
