Vanished Tool Makers: Elyria Metal Products Company

Above, a stamped steel wrench from this company.  Apparently, they were one of the suppliers of tool kits for Jeeps.  They were undoubtedly stamped out by the thousands.

The company may only have existed during World War II to serve this purpose.  I assume it was located in Elyria, Ohio, near Cleveland.  Aside from being the present headquarters of the Ridge Tool Company, the city doesn't seem to have distinguished itself.

I think Elyria was also a major bicycle manufacturing center in the early to mid 1900s.
