Ellis adjustable wrench Patented Nov. 3, 1902 and manufactured by Patterson, Gottfried & Hunter, New York City, this highly collectible piece was one of the first adjustable wrenches with a handle that could swivel and be locked in different positions depending on the work being performed. “It was good for use in tight spaces,” Joe says.
