Description:
A tongs-like tool with axle nut wrench and pliers type jaws, with a swinging latch bar. One handle includes a screwdriver. The specifications note the alternate use of a rubber band to hold the grip.

Ken Cope's "American Wrench Makers 1830-1930" lists Weaver as the tool's manufacturer.

A wrench of this type appears in a list of farm workshop tools in the 1883 AMERICAN FARM and HOME CYCLOPEDIA, by Horace R. Allen.
