I claim: Y Y
13.1. wrench,` comprising in combination a handle composedv of a plurality of superposed plates, rigidlyconneeted together, a hollow jaw` body, a common axle for said plates in 55 saidj aw body, horn-like claws in 'said jaw body, a tongue on the end of each of said plates some of saidl tongues engaging in a correspondingjnumber of said horn-like claws, a pin in said jaw body, and intermedi-3 0 i l s i ate blades one for each of saidtongues not engaging directly with claws said blades os- 'cillatably mountedon said `pin engaging with the corresponding tongues and vclaws so that on said handle being turned said' claws are 65 oscillatedaround their axle, thereby narrowing the mouth of the wrench and gripping the v l In testimony whereof I aiiiX-my signature. f GOTTFRIED GNG.
The handle ot the wrench consists,apart from the cover plates a which can loe-omitted,
, ed in the milled out wrench jaw body c so that they can be turned around an axle k. The plates terminate in tongues d, some of which engage directly and the others through claws 7c. These claws are-located in the wrench jaw body c at its jaw aperture g,
of a plurality of plates b, whichare mountjy the intermediary of blades ein horn-like whereas the blades @are rotatable mounted 4 on an axle it in the body e. The claws f and other. Thus the aperture formed-between,
