The Crescent has the thick jaws.   I have stumbled across several adjustables, Diamond and Crescent with the early thick jaws, sure the wrench beefy.

Heads Up / Re: Tuffy Screw Driver Set

Hello, I have a few empty boxes that I have purchased in the past, hoping to someday find the tool. Reverse psychology? Empty wooden brace bit, & wrench boxes, and any Stanley Plane box that is in good condition. Regards, Lou

To collectors, the box is oftentimes more valuable than the tool. Crazy, I know.

 John,  my 10 incher also has that same adjuster as yours, and there also slop in the sliding jaw.
 I believe it was made that way.

 are you talking about the Walden having 3/4"  jaws ?    mine is only 3/8" weighs 1 lb. 3 1/2 oz.

*  just added;   the adjuster screw takes an allen wrench to remove  it,  not a screwdriver.

 on bay, there is another 10" pebble Walden.   also a 8" Walden adjustable.  (non-pebble)

 I believe they were made by Walden and not jobbed out.  but I  could be wrong. they made hundreds of different types
 of wrenches. they had the know-how and ability.

Back in the 70s?  A company came out with some very strange tools and ratchets patterned after those used by astronauts.   Strange shaped and bulky so they could be wielded while wearing those thick gloves.   Some of these tools remind me of those.

The knurled nut looks like it is not a good fit, maybe a replacement.  Does not contact the sliding jaw very well.  The Crescent I  put in there is an old one, the jaws are 3/4 in. thick.
