In case anyone is wondering how this thing works (I was), here you go. The slide has a peg that rides in a spiral groove in what appears to be a brass shaft that runs the length of the handle. The shaft turns a pinion gear that drives the rack that's part of the moveable jaw, like on a regular adjustable wrench. There's also a tube around the shaft, which has a spiral cut into it, too, and appears to be a dust cover. It's a kinda nifty little piece of work, if you ask me. (This is a still from a YouTube video. I was going to post the video, but it's a not terribly well done review of the wrench.)

Do not operate heavy equipment, unless you actually know how to.
I remember these, and they worked. Not a fan of one-fits-all hand tools, they cannot fit every applicable fastener properly. But when supreme work isn't called for, or alternative is hauling a mixed bunch of tools up a ladder.....
One distinction is they didn't jam and become quite difficult to remove. I think modern versions have a slight taper in the jaw, which creates that undesirable fit, can't even back off the adjustment nut.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
