Crescent may not call it a monkey wrench, but many of their retailers do. It’s clear their Auto Wrench — John Piccone gonna sue somebody! — evolved from the wrench Charles Moncky patented. Witness its flat toothless jaws and how the lower jaw adjusts instead of the upper. This is no pipe wrench.
Crescent designed this wrench for automotive work. They forge it from tool steel and machine it to exceed government specifications. Then they chrome plate it to protect the wrench from corrosion.
Although it’s available in 9″, 11″, 15″, and 18″ lengths, I’m recommending the 18-incher next time you need to throw a “monkey wrench” into the works. It has a jaw capacity of 4-3/8″ and runs almost $90.
