How large is the wrench on your shop? You know you gotta add a dollar bill for reference  :)

Maybe I don't have a dollar!  :D

The wrench is about 34" long, but the openings are 3/4" and 5/8" only.

Thats pretty cool. One day i gotta get something like that for mine.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

My largest wrench, so far: 49 inches long. This QuikWerk brand behemoth, made by the Warren Tool and Forge Company, came from the Pennsylvania Railroad a.k.a. the World's Railroad. It has 1 3/4" and 1 7/8" openings, although they are marked 1 5/8" and 1 13/16". Found leaning against the back of a pickup truck at a local flea market.

How come you guys display steel tools outdoors all year long?  Doesn't it rain where you live?

Mine is painted black and the lettering is an exterior house paint. Been up there for about four years.
I am on the Gulf Coast of Texas, less than 10 miles from the bay as the crow flies. It certainly does rain, and when it is not raining, the humidity is high enough to make you feel like it is.
That wrench is no collector's item, I don't think, so there it is.

Here's my sign. a friend had a chain saw artist make it for me a couple years ago. It's over 5' long and made of Osage Orange wood.

I like that, Bus!
Maybe I can do something like that ( or have it done, I always have trouble getting my chainsaw to start!)

Do you keep getting flat tires on your chainsaw too??
If all else fails use a bigger hammer…

Bus.

I planted 28 Osage Orange trees across the back of our property this spring.  In 50 years, I'll be making my wrench sign.  Seriously, your chainsaw artist friend did a great job carving out that pair of pliers!

I don't have a large wrench, I have a very very large quarter.....

Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.
