Thanks for that and the picture Eddy! I could make no sense of the first video that was posted.I have seen it mentioned in several books, adjustable wrenches should be always turned towards the movable jaw, as shown in the video. The reasoning is the the movable jaw will be pushed down towards the body of the tool, thus giving it more support. To go the opposite way would lift the jaw away, introducing play and putting more force on weaker areas of the tool.
The only thing I can say about that tool, while obviously of nice quality, is that anyone who pays $165 for an adjustable wrench, deserves to own it. Mikec
Channelock 8wcb is a nice, made in spain wrench-great quality and good price. I have it andlike it.
Japanese Nepros is the best looking with a big price tag!
$165 for 10 " !--only
Agree completely. The small tool box on our big tractor has 2 sizes crescent wrenches a vise grip, 2 screw drivers and the exact size wrench for the shear bolt on rotary mower. Walking a half mile back to barn for a wrench gets old in a hurry. Best Crescent wrench I have is a 1971 12" that I bought new at Hardware store, Japan made True-test. It was expensive for an 18 year old kid.I carry a 10" crescent wrench in my tractor tool box. That and a pair of vise grips and a couple of screwdrivers have often saved me a walk back to the house for a "proper" wrench.
