Hello
My husband and I have recently been cleaning out my our family farmhouse and have stumbled across this canning jar opener. I have searched the internet to find out how old they are or even if they were a common household item anywhere. However I have found nothing that even comes close to resembling it. If anyone has any ideas or information about it I'd be thrilled to learn more. The top of it is stamped
Off-On
Jar Cap Remover
Detroit,Michigan
Patented in Canada
Patent Pending in USA

I'd love yo hear what you think! Thanks in advance!!

    Hi
    I have been collecting accessories for Fruit jars for over 40 years and have not seen this one. I have about 10 different wrenches similar to one like this and IF YOU WANT TO SELL IT, I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED
    Thanks for posting it as that is how we all learn what there is out there try to find
    as ever

    Hello Larryjar
    Are the wrenches typically used for canning or do they have another purpose? If you would like to email me an offer I'd be happy to sell it. I have been given quite a few and am not really sure what I would do with them all. My email is stefi_jae@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much for posting. I thought it was so odd to not be able to find any information about it on the internet. Thanks again! iluvshoos
