I’m going to assume that you know this is an older wrench…..The two questions are: what year was it produced and what was it used for?
Answer: This is a Hubcap Wrench produced in 1915. The Hubcap Wrench was used on early cars as they needed repairs and much more regular maintenance. If you think having your car break down is an inconvenience today; think about what it was like back when people starting driving cars. Being able to call a Taxi sure beats having to fix your own car!
Many blacksmiths, machinists and others started auto repair shops. New-car dealers and gas stations also began repairing vehicles. Most cities had garages that not only repaired cars, but stored vehicles, cleaned and offered fuel.
