Trimont Trimo Adjustable Monkey Wrench 15 inch
This is a very nice, 15" adjustable nut wrench, marked "TRIMO TRIMONT MFG. CO. ROXBURY MASS. U.S.A. TRIMO SIZE 15" PAT'D 12-19-1911" on the handle area, and "DROP FORGED" on the moving jaw. In good++ condition with very little wear, no rust, good straight metal and gears. The jaws edge show very minor wear, minor dings on the edges, but much better than most, and the jaws align well with one another. We note a few small hammer dings on the end of the handle, otherwise a very carfully used wrench by the looks of it. The knurled thumbwheel design works great as it incorporates a stamped steel U shaped washer, (formed to fit into the main casting for smoother operation) that helps the thumb wheel turn much easier, and also guides the moving jaw better) than those without this feature. The washer is formed to fit into the main casting next to it, so it doesn't spin round and round. A very nicely designed hard to find size, nice clean wrench, from the early 1920's era. Measures 13.6" long (completely closed) even though it is marked 15" on the wrench, and the jaws are 1.0" thick.
