Fancy Craftsman 14" pipe wrench
« on: February 12, 2019, 02:48:00 PM »
Can anyone enlighten me as to why Craftsman made such a wrench.  Over the years this is only the second one I have come across.

As to why Craftsman actually made a wrench of that style I don't know for sure but maybe they just tried a different design to promote sales. I have one of these I picked up a while back for $5 Canadian ( which is about $3.75 US ) I did some looking thru some old catalogs and it showed up in a 1953 booklet for a price of $2.95. The little booklet I have only shows a 14" version.

The 14" size is the only size I have come across.
