In the early 1900's in Aurora, Illinois there was a Richard's Manufacturing Company that later merged with the Wilcox Manufacturing Company. They made tools like an adjustable wrench, similar to the crescent wrench of today. There was a Thomas Skillin that worked here as a designer, but his name was never on the company letterhead.
