Though I’m pretty sure long-time Toolmonger PutnamEco, who took the picture above and posted it to our Flickr pool, will answer this question, I can’t help but ask anyway: What’s the most common use for a bent/angled adjustable wrench? I’ve seen enough of ’em on the ‘net and in toolboxes that I know there’s a pretty common application. I guess I just haven’t run into it yet.
And before you write to thrash me for my ignorance, let me say that I have the utmost respect for specialty tools. Hell, deep-offset wrenches have saved the day for me on at least one occasion, and I keep a drawer full of oddball screwdrivers, well, just in case.
One thing’s certain: It looks like mister Eco’s got himself around $100 worth of Westcotts, if we’re to believe current eBay auctions.
