Just don't let someone sell ya a "metric crescent wrench". wink




(If it has millimeters stamped on the side its the length of the wrench, not the jaw opening). grin

I bought a crescent wrench/spanner when I lived in Britain. It was/is Whitworth/SAE/metric.

Believe it or not, I had a left handed adjustable wrench.
You had to spin the screw opposite than most to open or close it.
I loved loaning it out and watch the guys stop and look at it funny.
Most of them would not say a thing.
One guy started cursing me and and winged it across the shop.
I just smiled and said "I gocha"
I always carried two the same size, one for me and one to loan out.

Well, the last tools I acquired are two tire irons for changing lock ring rims. They were under the seat of the 51 GMC I just brought home. One is a Kentool, the other doesn't have a brand but it has a maker's mark I need to look up.

I got the new channel locks from Crescent today. I haven't had a chance to use 'em, but I like 'em for now.
