Trimont Pipe Wrench 14 inch Trimo
This is a very nice, antique 14" adjustable pipe wrench, marked "TRIMO TRIMONT MFG. CO. ROXBURY MASS. U.S.A. TRIMO SIZE 14" PAT'D 3-5-18" on the handle area, and "DROP FORGED PATENTED" on the moving jaw. In good+ condition with minimal wear, no rust, good straight metal and gears. The jaw edges show minor wear, minor edge dings or edge chip on the edges, but much better than most, and the jaws align well with one another, teeth sharpness is good+. We note a few minor 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 pair of stamped steel U shaped washers, (formed to fit into the knurl wheel 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 and the knurl wheel 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 13.0" long (completely closed) even though it is marked 14" on the wrench, and the jaws are 7/8" thick.
