I love this wrench posted by Toolmonger reader Whiteforge because it reminds us that we’ve been trying to come up with bigger and better wrenches for a long time. If the caption on the image is correct, this “Any Angle Wrench” was designed in 1916.
So for the better part of a hundred years, we haven’t come very far in adjustable wrench innovation. Folks tinkering around the shop the same time WWI was going on wouldn’t have any trouble identifying wrenches of today. I find that fascinating. Nice find, Whiteforge.
