Notices appear in February of 1911 that Frank Bacon has organized the Erie Tool Works to manufacture tools in Erie, Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania charters list the date as 1908, while the company history page has 1902. The company acquires Lakeview Forge, originally Lakeside Forge, an important name in hand tools. Erie is noted for their quality vises and pipe wrenches.
