    I buy them at the flea market. Find them all day long, say Made In USA on them. I really like the Wright brand wrench I've got, as well as the Klein. I spent ten bucks on the pair.

    Go with the brand that's on sale. Eventually u will lend to a friend and they will mis -place. But if u dont lend and have a very secure shanty/truck. Go with the best Guarantee/replacement. I'm sure i don't have to tell u go american.

    This is a great wrench because it opens real wide and is thin.
    I believe if you google channnel lock it comes in different sizes.

    My fav wrench

    This my favorite now as well... The skinny jaws come in handy on txv's.

    I believe they are made for channel lock by Irega....
    I also keep a 12 craftsman in the tool back as a beater/hammer. And a 8 and 10 inch channel lock adjustables.

    That's a nice wrench. I have the Knipex alligator pliers and was looking for a version that wouldn't mar surfaces. The smooth jaws and parallel action of the pliers wrench appears to fit my needs perfectly.
    I've been impressed by all of the Knipex pliers I've found. Smooth and tight action, extremely strong.
    I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

    Irega is the best I have ever used. Very tight tolerances so the jaws aren't sloppy. Adjustable wrenches is all they make.
