Hjorth Wrench Co. (Jamestown, NY) - See below advertisement for the Lightening Pipe & Nut wrench. 12/1904 is the earliest reference we have found for this company.
The 8/9/1899 edition of The Potter Enterprise (Coudersport, PA) notes that Mr. William Hjorth was in town attempting to sell the rights to a wrench, "which will fit nuts of various sizes and can be used as a pipe wrench. It can be used as a staple puller, screwdriver, and wire cutter."
