Description:
This is the famous Aiken Tool Holder. The patent describes the hollow handle with a lead cushioned bottom and screw cap, the grip which tightens into a threaded socket, the wrench to tighten and loosen the grip, and the twenty tools with square serrated shanks designed to be used with the handle.
