    The 6" super-wide at the bottom of the page looks sweet! Puttin' it on my list...

    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.

    Go with cresent, been a staple in the plumbers bag for years. Its affordable and lasts thru the abuse for years. I've bought some of the fancier expensive ones and lost them at some point. As for klien They're good for electrical tools only. I bought the $26 snips twice and they loose their cutting ability quickly. Be leery if you ever pick up the klien meters, not sensitive enough - almost got blasted by 460.

    I have a 12" Rigid adjustable, got it 4 years ago at Wolseley.
    The adjuster never binds up, The jaw is still tight, and it's made of high-nickel steel. Made very well with tight clearances. It's been in the rain for days and not a spot of rust. It was $60 CDN
    Highly recommend it! You can't beat rigid for wrenches.

    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.

    Then you'll love this wrench. Won't round of bolts with these. They are also great for bending metal or crushing things, like hard copper pipe or what ever you want to crush.

    I carry two. Great for all but where you need a lot of leverage.

    +1, even though Kobalt claims they have a lifetime guarantee on their tools, the people at Lowes are the biggest PITA when it comes to returns. You question why i'm returning or exchanging your tools? Because they're pieces of crap! Anything I've had break from craftsman I go back to sears no questions asked and I have a new one within minutes. The people that usually work in the tool dept at sears usually aren't contractors but definitely have used Craftsman @ home and understand where your'e coming from.
