Seller has lowered the price several times. Still no buyer- Wonder why?

Not adjustable, fixed jaw?    Looking closely it appears to have been heavily rusted, the sliding jaw is stuck, then was extensively wirebrushed to achieve the (siver) look.  All metal handle means industrial or RR use, vs. the wood scale handle.   No shipping on a heavy piece is a real plus.

Along with the problems John pointed out, it also appears to be bent.

In questions asked of him when it first showed up, he insisted strongly that it was made non-adjustable. He still maintains the wrench is in good working order !

Sounds like a load of baloney to me.   If it was supposed to be "non adjustable" it wouldn't have the screw mechanism on it.   :rolleyes:

I question him again. Let's see if he responds and stick to his story. Last time I gave him plenty of links and such to wrenches like his but he dismissed all my attempts to dissuade him.

Tell him he ruined the value by painting it silver and that it's worthless now.
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.
