Tools in this section include those patented American tools that are interesting but did not fit in one of the other sections. Usually they are interesting because of mechanical complexity, rarity, or provenance. There are typically few books on these niche tools, but some of the general tool reference books include interesting sections on their beauty and form.

The tools in this section are noteworthy because of their inventive nature -- often they are examples of a "better mousetrap".  They usually didn't sell very well and are often rarer due to this.
