Here's a Wright 1/2 drive N-11 tee that I just got today. I don't see a date code but I think maybe fairly early since the logo has
"Barberton-O-USA" on it. It is hard to photograph completely because of the way it is stamped.

I picked up a set of 1/2 dr Wright's off eBay only because all my Wright tools were 3/8 dr.
The pic's with the white background are from the auction and the black backgrounds are my pics.
I've never seen a Wright ratchet of this design before and it isn't shown on AA.  Also in the set was
a rare 12 pt 57/64 spark plug socket.  The breaker bar is a Speedmaster, made by Wright. 
All the 'Wright' pieces except the SP socket are dated -55, the SP socket is dated 9+.

The Wright tootsie roll (and the regular handle of the same make),  are my all time second favorite ratchet.
 Williams (the older patterns) gets first of all in my book, but not by much!!
Wright is tight on their heels!!

These two pictures are taken from either side of the handle  of my Wright 10-inch easy-adjust monkey wrench. The pictures show the wrench was made by Wright Wrench Company of Tacoma, Washington and its patent date was March, 1904. The company's logo is shown in the second photograph.  Is this the same Wright company you guys are talking about?

I doubt it.  Wright Tool that made the wrench sets is and was manufactured in Barberton, Ohio.

 That quick adjust was made by  Wright Wrench and Forging Co. of Tacoma,Wa and Canton,Oh. Mar 15,1904 patent by Lewis Ash and Hiram Steward. Ken Cope has a good writeup on the west coast company.
