This invention relates ‘to wrenches, and more

secured by bolts or nuts associated with threaded
studs and adapted to accommodate a plurality of
such nuts.
An object of the present invention is to pro
vide a tool of the character indicated, so con
structed that in the application of a nut to a
bolt or threaded stud the nut can be driven home
and properly seated without regard to whether
the bolt or stud projects beyondthe outer face
of ‘the nut without any possibility of the bolt
threading into the next adjacent nut in the maga
A further objector the invention is to provide
a tool of the type indicated adapted to feed the

without possibility of jamming in the tool.
