    Nope, but the "outdoor enthusiasts" keep their distance when they see you toting one of those or a 48" pipe wrench... Use wrenches that size on big threaded ball valves and unions.

    I started using those Crescent Auto/Ford style adjustable wrenches again over the last few years. What's funny is that I had two of them for many years that I almost never used, so sold them on ebay. The new ones I replaced them with are okay, but fairly expensive and now being made in China. I have three different sizes, 9, 11 and 15-inch, but the 9-inch seems to be the one I use the most.

    LOL nice. I feel kind of depressed when I see what has become of the Black & Decker name in the last 10-15 years. Mainstream tool manufacturing for retail has become a race to the bottom and it's driven the cost of american-made quality stuff through the roof.

    Lol I only go up to a 24" adjustable wrench my truck. The 18" gets used a lot more though. Great on unions, Trane roto lock fitting on compressors, heating valves, ect.

    BAHCO is my recent favorite, I got all sizes, they are slim enough for txv work. I sent my kleins, blue channelocks to my backup toolbags.

    I've been impressed by all of the Knipex pliers I've found. Smooth and tight action, extremely strong.
    Knipex tools are great, and I was thoroughly impressed with the alligator pliers when I saw this video:

    Please stop posting videos like that.... I'm now looking at 30-80 dollar tools. Gah I wish I had more money.

    Skip the alligator and go right for the Cobra pliers... Much easier to adjust them...

    I just recently picked up there Pliers Wrench. Comes in really handy for gripping odd stuff like txv and won't damage bolts.

    They sell em at sears if you want to play with em.
