Lei-tm Patent No. 64,662, daad May 14, 1867.



Be it known that I, WILLIS D. GOLD, of the city land county of Philadelphia, and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improved Combined Hammer, Screw-Driver, and Double Wrench and I do hereby declarel the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the nature thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertnins lto fully understand and use` the' same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making part of this specification, in which- Figure 1 is a side view of the device illustrating myinvention;

Figure 2 is a transverse vertical section in the line a' ze, fig. 1.'

The nature of my invention consists in the combination of a hammer, screw-driver, and double wrench, in such a manner .as to produce a simple, practical, and cheap tool, as will be hereinafter more fully described.

In the drawings, A represents my. device, consisting of a body, B, of tapering form, with one end of which is casta hammer, C. The hammer may be formed on both sides of the plate, thus presentingthe letter T,

` although only one, as shown in the drawing, is necessary. At the opposite end of the plate I attach a screwdriver, D, which is made of sheet steel out in proper shape, and introduced into the mould before the casting of the plate and hammer,`so thatthe shrinking and cooling ofthe iron will firmly hold the inner end of the screw?,- driver, it being embedded therein. The body B forms the double wrench, consisting 'Aoi' two parts. One side, ,0., is provided with a series ofisguare openings or slots, b, of varying sizes adapted to fit the varying size of'4 bolt-heads and nuts,and are arranged angularly with the top and bottom of the body, so that greater power is obtained in first starting the nuts or bolts. The opposite side, e, of the body, is cut out the distance of its length, leaving two rims or flanges, cl d, between which the heads ofthe bolts and`nuts' are introduced, and are adapted to receive any intermediate sizes'of the bolt-heads and nuts which the openings I1 would/not receive. Thus, a nut which is a little too large to t into the/largest opening, would be received between the flanges 'd d at the same point that opening occupies, and so on throughout the length of the body, yso that the wrench will readily fit or hold almost all ot' the sizes of bolt-heads and nuts as now in general use. It willy be seen that the screw-driver can also be employed for withdrawing tacks and small nails, having a bearing or fulcrum in the smaller end of the wrench, the sides of which project beyond the screw-driver, being embedded in the body', :as hereinbefore described. The wrench and hammer are made of cast iron, but I do not limit myself to material. It will be perceived that there is great leverage attained in the peculiar construction of my combined tool. The hammer wilhassist in forming a handle with the wrench in using the screw-driver, which, being adapted for withdrawing tacks, renders these portions convenient and practical. The tapering end of the body aifords a firm hold in unscrewing nuts, die., and if the nut or bolt is of asize to correspond with the central openings, both ends ofthe wrench can be handled, and, in fact, oncpart assists the other `throughout the whole invention, as will be readily perceived in manipulating the tool.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A combined hammer, screw-driver, and double wrench, having the charaetcristicsand opcratin g substantially as represented and described.

To the above I have signed my name this twenty-fifth day of February, 1867.
