The Holy Wrench of Notrattlia

Strangers from distant lands, anons of old.

Aide me in my everlasting quest for The Holy Wrench, one that would never RATTLE LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER AND HOLD THE FUCKING WIDTH, GOD FUCKING DAMMIT, JESUS CHRIST!

    I think an adjustable wrench with a locking mechanism should exist... must exist... but I've never seen one.

        Interesting. I was thinking like some switch you could press that would stop the screw from spinning.

    Didn't watch the video, but I have a Channellock wrench that I like. It's an 8" that opens up to 1 1/2", and it has an extra thread on the thumbscrwe. That does make a difference for holding its adjustment. It works well for what I use it for (~1" jam nuts/thin lockrings with x-fine threads).

    For actually cranking on something, I almost always use those Knipex pliers wrenches. The silver ones with smooth jaws.

    i used to have a really fucking good one but i can't find it now, i have a 9/10 one by Duratool. tiny amount of wobble but much less slop than the usual chink shit.

    Here you go. no rattle no matter what and you'd have to torque like a tank for it to let go of the width.

      Oh you only brought your set of 24 SAE wrenches? This nut is metric.

        Exactly.
        In fact, someone ought to invent metric box wrenches.
        They'd probably sell really well for those people who want to turn metric nuts but don't want to use an adjustable wrench.

        Don't take my idea I'm going to patent it.

        It would also have to be a metric that's not a size without SAE etc overlap. Most tools are broached with sufficient clearance that 8mm swaps with 5/16", 11mm w.7/16ths etc. 9 and 10mm and of course others are orphans but knowing what interchanges is standard mechanic knowledge.

    Used to work with a German and he hated those things with an autistic passion.
    Apparently they're called Englishman wrenches in Germany since they are only used by lazy people and are the wrong tool to use on every job

      Snap-on Crescent style wrenches are love but if you don't preload the worm with your thumb you don't know their proper use.

      I love showing autspergies proof (by feeler gauge) that a properly held adjustable can have less backlash than a fixed open-end wrench. All such assertions are measurable therefore testable so any opinion contradicting facts may be discarded.

      In fact safety regulations even advise against them here as they cause more accidents than ring spanners

      Oh you only brought your set of 24 SAE wrenches? This nut is metric.

      You need like 5 spanners to cover all common metric nuts and 1 angle grinder to cover everything else

      You are disregarding the measurable fact that the ring spanner has 6 points of contact instead of 2

    Bahco is the easy answer.
    Despite the fact adjustable wrenches suck dick, the Bahcos suck just a little less than everyone else.

    Go to Ebay and find old stock Made In Sweden ones and pay the premium.

      Channellock adjustables are made by Bahco in spain, they’re some of the nicest crescent wrenches you can find easily.

          The Swedish ones may be made nicer, which is why I said the Channellock ones are the nicest you are going to walk past in a home improvement store.

          IIRC, the autist PF goy tested them and somehow nu-Craftsman ended up pretty good. I always though the Milwaukee ones felt decent as well but I don’t see them anymore unless it’s some promo 2-pack at Home Depot.

            There is absolutely 0 comparison between the Channellocks and the Spanish made Bahco
            The Bahco mogs it by a mile,regardless of your projections based on country of origin.

            The HART adjustable wrenches are unironically better than the Channellocks are.

              You won’t find Bahco wrenches in many retailers. Hence the point about the Channellocks being solid.

              I checked out those Hart adjustables, they actually looked ok, but sounds like maybe you haven’t handled many of the Spainish made Channies. Feels better than the little Engineer guy I got too. Def the best feeling crescent wrenches I can fingerfuck in stores.

                Youll find the HART in literally every single small town in america, far easier to find in a brick and mortar store so the point is moot. They are half the price too.

                > but sounds like maybe you haven’t handled many of the Spainish made Channies.
                It sounds like a bunch of cope from someone needing validation for the tools he bought.
                I own all 3 HART, Bahco, and Channellocks

        Wut
        The ones I have were made by Irega. If an adjustable wrench has "Spain" on it, it's almost certainly made by this company, under contract.

          Then they’re making Bahco’s wrenches too, the ones everybody cums all over while saying the same wrenches with a different name are trash.

    They're called "adjustable" for a reason OP, as soon as you apply one nanomicrogram of torque to them they self-adjust to allow you to quickly and easily slip right off the nut and drive your knuckles into whatever sharp metal object happens to be closest to you

      Sounds like user error. I use adjustable wrenches all the time in high torque applications and rarely have one slip or round off a fastener... These are on bigger bolts/nuts on farm equipment and hydraulic fittings most of the time.

      That's because you're torquing in the wrong direction.

      The correct way to use a worm drive adjustable is to preload the worm with your thumb YOU IGNORANT TURD so the backlash will be similar or less than a common fixed open end.

      Bragging that you don't know how to use tools is not a great look. You people study nothing and are proud of that.

      sounds like you haven't learned yet that it is better to pull on your wrench rather than push on it.
      you'll get it one of these days, it's a real "ah ha" moment when you figure out you don't have to go through live with skinned knuckles

        They're a wise add-on in their original application on Crescent style spud wrenches. BTW every mechanic should have at least one spud wrench. The taper bar comes in surprisingly handy. Bull pins and sleaver bars rock too. Ironworkers developed some effective hand tools.
