Antique Auto Wrench BHM Corp Bridgeport 9 Inch 1940s

9" Auto Wrench - Adjustable Auto Wrench - made of forged steel by the BHM Corp in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA, circa 1940s.

Bridgeport 9 inch auto wrench, a common item for automobile tool kits. The wrench is marked with "B.H.M. Corp." and "Bridgeport, U.S.A." forged into the shank, with "Forged Steel" on the reverse. The overall length is 9.0 inches, and the finish is cadmium plating.

The wrench is rusty but all the parts move and work as they should.

History:

Bridgeport Hardware Manufacturing was founded in 1895 by Willis F. Hobbs as the Bridgeport Manufacturing Company, with an initial location on Knowlton Street in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Bridgeport Hardware Manufacturing made a wide variety of tools, with many of them produced as a contract manufacturer for other companies. The tools were frequently marked with the company's initials BHM, sometimes in the stylized BHM-Logo shown in our Logos Table.

BHM sometimes made use of a somewhat unusual nickel-molybdenum alloy steel, so this may help to identify an otherwise unknown tool.

In the early 1960s Bridgeport Hardware was acquired by Crescent Niagara.
