A reader sent in pictures of this 31" long box wrench, one end is 2 3/4" and the other is 3". It might just be a standard Williams wrench at the large end of the scale but he is looking for any info because as he says, "It just struck me as odd that all the ones online are smaller, have flat or oval shafts or have offset heads. This one has a 1" round shaft, no offset and the size was unique to me".
Cool wrench and a great find. There may be a part number on the other side of the handle. The logo is relatively current, but that size doesn't appear in the catalogs I looked at so I'm going to assume it's a special-order industrial size. I did find one picture of another one, so they are out there. The round shank is likely because 1) it works and 2) they don't sell enough of them to have justified changing the tooling back when they went to oval and flat.
I'm not a patina guy so I would get some evapo-rust gel on that, polish it up, and hang it on the wall!
