Lepley Hand-Forged Wrench, Somerset County, Pennsylvania

This hand-forged 19th century wrench is similar to a modern-day tap wrench and is a good example of how the old-time gunsmiths made most of their own tools. It was found in a bucket of old Lepley gunsmithing hardware in Southampton Township, Somerset County, PA in the 1970s. Its overall length is 8-3/8 inches, and it is made from ferrous material. The corners of the handles are beveled to protect the user's hands.
