US Patent: 445,451 http://www.datamp.org/patents/displayPatent.php?id=13959&pn=445,451 Vehicle Wrench Patentee: John A. Miller - St. Louis MO Granted:1891-01-27
Manufactured by John A. Miller - St. Louis MO

The patent focuses on the shape of the socket portion which is designed to accommodate several sizes of nuts. The wrenches citing this patent have square sockets with triangular indentations in the middle of each of the four sides, without any of the other features noted in the specifications. Corresponding Canadian patent CA-35,643 was granted Dec. 20, 1890. Both U.S. and Canadian patent dates were noted in advertising for Miller's Vehicle Wrench. Miller patented an improved version (patent no. 485,290, issued Nov. 8, 1892). That patent notes the multiple open end wrenches on the handle end.

US Patent: 869,649 http://www.datamp.org/patents/displayPatent.php?id=174&pn=869,649 Gage Patentee: John L. Pringle - Toronto ON Canada Granted:1907-10-29
Assigned to Union Manufacturing Company - New Britain CT

A beautiful tool, and perhaps the culmination of the designs based on W. Brodhead's original patent (76,884). This tool uses a metal sheathed bar for wear protection, and also adds a split-bar design to allow it to be used to mark mortises. This tool was assigned to the Union Tool Company, but between when the patent was applied for and when it was granted, Union was acquired by the Stanley Rule & Level Company. This tool was produced (a single example is known extant), but the merger of Union and Stanley probably killed the production.
