Mossberg Wrench Company (Central Falls, RI) - Sometime in 1902, the Mossberg Wrench Company was moved from Attleboro to Central Falls, RI, and was under the management of H. H. Ricker. This article notes that the company has no affilliation with any other company bearing the Mossberg name. This would indicate to us that Frank disassociated himself from this entity in 1902. This link shows one of the earliest (Sept. 1894) advertisements for a Mossberg Wrench. Notice the patent dates on the jaw.
