Great-grandpas monkey wrenches may not be your friend. Monkey wrenches might be the most common generational tool relics best looked upon and put aside. They were forged in no way similar to samurai swords. First, unlike other >100 year forgings that age harden into prime working condition in woodworking vises and anvils, the 100-year-old monkey wrench is a high torque lever, strained in its intended use into an assortment of embrittlement propagating microfractures chancing sudden, catastrophic breaks. Ive had teeth and jaws break out like shrapnel. Handles snap sharply under my grip. Second, having bought high-dollar brand name wrenches, I lose them, and thats 100% my fault, of course. Its not worth driving 50-100 miles to attempt to recollect them. The modern state of tool metallurgy, processes, and design ensure that these wrenches were produced for the seemingly ridiculous low price. These are well machined, ground, and finished forgings. The low price has nothing to do with the quality and utility. They are quality wrenches that will last a lifetime, even in commercial use ... if you dont lose them. Excellent value for money.
This thing is solid. I see no reason why it shouldn't perform as well as it's major name brand competitor. This is a great tool line. I have their wrenches as well.
I haven't used the pipe wrench yet,but by the looks of it ,it should do the job.It's light weight and looks well made.Not too bad for the price either.Will be using it soon.
Way better than expected. Almost rigid quality!!!
