using either the punch or the chisel.

Another object of my inventionis the provision of a tool which fulfils the requirements above indicated and in which the handle serves as a housing for receiving a foldable wrench element.

Other objects such as lowcost of manufacture and simplicity in construct-ion are also comprehendedby my invention, all of which will presently appear when the folvf? lowing description and claims are read with reference to the drawing accompanying and forming a part of this specification.

In said drawing:

. Fig. 1 isa side elevational view of a tool constructed in accordance with my invention, a portion of the handle being broken away and shown in section; and

Fig. 2 is an edge View looking toward the left of Fig. 1.

Referring to the drawing by numerals, 1 designates the handle portion of my novel tool, 2 the wrench element, Sthe chisel, and 4 the punch. The handle portion l is preferably in the form of an elongated body of rectangular shape in cross-section, and is provided intermediate its ends with a concave edgev 5 for securing a better hand grip on the tool. A chamber or recess 6 is formed in the handle 1 and opened at the opposite edge of the handle portion from that at which `the concaved edge'5 is formed. Within the chamber 6 a wrench head 7 is p'ivoted at one end as at 8 so that it may be swung out of the chamber to project fromy the handle portion 1. The pivot 8 of the wrench element 2 is arranged in` the `chamber 6 so that in its projected position a portion of said element 2 abuts one4 end wall of the chamber whereby, when the wrench elementl is in use, the tool may be turned in an opera-V` the wrench element is squared so that, in

Y this idle position,"it maybe engaged byV a flat spring 9, suitably secured within, the

chamber 67 and yieldingly held against accidental projection from the handle portion l. The chisel 3 and punch 4 and which are of usual tapering formation, project lono'itudinally from opposite ends of the handle portion 1 and are located adjacent opposite redges thereof with their longitudinal axes in parallel offset relation to the longitudinal center of the handle portion, whereby at either end of the handle portion a butt 10 is provided for driving `the instrumentality7 at the opposite end. As will be observed, these buttsform flat driving surfaces at each end ofthe handle portion, the faces of which lie .in planes at a right langle to the longitudinal center of the handle portion. In short there is an instrumentality at either end of the handle portion l and likewise a butt 10 at each end, each butt 10 being in direct alignment with the instrumentality at the 0p-V posite end. The tooll elements 3 and 4 at their base portions are of less area than that of the flat end faces of the hand grip for providing the driving' butts at each end of the handv grip arranged in longitudinal alignment with the tool element carried by the opposite end .of the hand grip. n

The chisel 3 and punch 4 being tapered,

present inclined inner faces extendingV at an obtuseangle from their adjacent butts or fiat driving surfaces 10, which will each have a tendency to direct the blow of the hammer-to the butt'adjacent it, if the operator should, because of use of the tool in what might Iordinarily be termed inaccessible placesfind it difficult to direct the blows of the hammer directly on the butt. Obviously my invention is susceptible of "modication without departing from the spirit thereof, and such modifications and changes'as fall within the scope of thel appended claims are intended to be compre-v hended by the present disclosure.

I claim :k A

1. A combination tool comprising an elongated body portion forming a. hand grip provided with flat end faces, land tool elements projecting longitudinally of andl from each end ofthe handgrip and disposed with their longitudinal axes in parallel offset relation, said tool elements at'their base portions being of less area than theA flat end faces `of the hand grip for providing driving butts at each end ofthe hand griparranged in longitudinal alignment With the tool element carried by the opposite end of the hand 'grip'.y 2. A combination toolcoinprisin'g-an elon-1' gated body portion forming a hand grip having flat driving surfaces provided at each* end thereof and disposed in offset relation to opposite sides of the longitudinal center 'of extending at an obtuse V:ingle from its adn jacent driving surface.
