Papaws big wrench
« on: October 02, 2019, 01:39:02 PM »
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in buying a copy of Papaws big wrench.  I made it for him a few years back as a birthday present. It will take a while as I am not a red hot priority at the foundry. Don’t know cost yet, but I’ll get a quote if I can put together an order for 5 pieces. I am thinking $150, but that could go up depending on the foundry quote.

If anyone is considering one of these and thinks $150 seems high, know that this is a BIG wrench. I’m not home so can’t be exact, but they are around 2 1/2-3 feet long, 8-10 in. wide, and a couple inches thick. Weight is probably 10-15 pounds. You’ll have to do a little clean up on the casting flash, but nothing major.

An absolutely great addition to your "tool cave".

Where are you located John ? I'm thinking freight would be substantial but a pick up might be possible.
  That would sure look good hanging in my shop. My compliments to you that is one nice looking wrench.
  I would be interested in one and if you want payment up front,just let me know.

I am located about 15 miles north of Milwaukee. Shipping in the lower 48 will be around $30.

They are cast aluminum and easy to clean up.
