  • Garage sale find

    Thanks to a lucky find this weekend at a garage sale, I have finally completed my set of both imperial and metric crescent wrenches.

    I think you will find some of those are left-handed!

      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.

          hilarious! I once sent a worker to get me the metric cresent wrench. It took him a while to find it.

            If you have ever used the original Bahco you would know how clumsy the Crescent wrenches feel when the adjustment screw works in opposite way!

              Hell, i can NEVER remember which way the screw turns.

              Good score though. Its always a pain to grab my inch crescent for a 1/2" nut only to discover the damned thing is 12mm.

                Who needs to turn the screw when the whole set of sizes is hanging there.

                    Are the imperial sets also available in decimal sizes? They could really round out the collection.

                      You may want to expand the set to cover more sizes......

                          Very funny I have to admit, I scrolled past without it registering before I got it, think I’m tired, I prefer bahco myself, it’s the bread and butter over here, good solid reliable tools, my current favourite, the fish tailed version, nice collection nevertheless

                            Not a blackened one either.

                            I didn't think they came in size increments of 1mm.

                              No self-respecting workshop owner should be without a set of northern adjustable wrenches, and a set of southern wrenches. Equally important is a set of eastern and western wrenches. And to round out the collection, you should have the high altitude ones too.
