About a week ago, I decided it would be nice to find the parts and get it into working order. To my dismay, I have not been able to find the knurl and pin and spring to repair a
model at112 crescent wrench. you can find replacement parts for 6, 8, 10, etc. size wrenches, but for some reason amazon, e-bay, and all second-hand suppliers do not have the
replacement parts for a 12 inch (at112) wrench. Is there some reason that the 12 inch crescent wrench (at112) is a dinosaur product? I would appreciate any suggestions as to
where I might obtain the replacement parts, or should I just frame it over my workbench?

Thanks, Goofyokie42

This came from an auction, a mom and pop hardware store was closing down having lost out to the big box stores.. The spare parts that they had for such wrench rebuilds...

Hello Okie,

You might keep your eyes open at a swap meet or flea market for a doner wrench, occasionally one will show up
which parts could be robbed off of. I have used a 1/4-28 thread bolt cut down for a pin on a 10-12 inch crescent.
Good Luck

At home we had several old Vlchek flat head wrenches,mostly worn-out,I ran across some that were pretty comfortable to use though. I used to use nothing but snap-on didn't get hurt as bad !!
