Vanished Tool Makers/Brands: Ge Kay

I picked up this stamped steel wrench at a church yard sale.  "Case hardened, rust-proofed."  There's very little information online about this make.  From the hole in the centre, it looks like it was designed to be held together with a machine screw as an automotive set.
Update, a reader sent in pictures of a full set from Ebay. We also found a entry in a 1947 US patent office list.

Still looking for any information about the company.

I recently came to possess a set of these myself. This blog entry is the ONLY information I have been able to turn up about them. Further research into the history of Ge KaY is confounded by the fact that a presumably unrelated George Kaufman was a rather prominent economist, and internet references to him eclipse whatever information might be available about the manufacturer of these wrenches.
