Followed me home
« on: May 12, 2018, 10:03:45 AM »
These wrenchs followed me home from auction yesterday. Some are duplicates but most will reside in my basement.
The Whitehead made on the Jackson patent was a welcome addition.
The 5 seat Austrian bicycle brought $1100.

Jim, Is there a name on the quick adjust pipe wrench? It resembles some of the Irlands I’ve had, but they all had round handles.

Besides the cool factor, is there some benefit to the S-shaped "crescent" wrenches?

Nice get.

Leverage? Getting into tight spaces where a straight handle would not work?? Just my 2 cents. Regards, Lou

Once while working on a toilet, I couldn't get a good turn on the feed line to the tank until I used a B & C curved handle adjustable.
