R.F Sedgley "Hexall" 8-pc 1/4" hex drive SAE socket set

(patent 1289558 issued Dec. 31, 1918)

R.F. Sedgley, 2311 North Sixteenth Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA

Founder and inventor Reginald F. Sedgley apparently manufactured these as early as January 24, 1916, according to the November 25, 1916 "Hardware Age" magazine advertisement and the patent document for his "Hexall" trademark.
Best known for their line of "Hexall" sockets, Sedgley also manufactured other tools.

This 1/4" hex drive SAE socket set includes seven plain steel sockets, none of which have any markings, and an "ELL" wrench, which is marked only with the patent date of Dec. 31, 1918.

The sizes on the six-point sockets are 1/4", 5/16", 11/32", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", and the knurled round socket.
