I thought I had seen it all when I found an adjustable wrench that doubles as a pipe wrench. I was wrong. Walking through my local Home Depot I thought my eyes were deceiving me.
Crescent has come out with something that I had to add to my “cool new tools” list, and this one seems to top them all.
It is called a “Pass Thru Adjustable Wrench Set”.
This has to be the neatest thing since sliced bread.
It not only does double-duty as both an adjustable wrench and a pipe wrench BUT it also has a pass-thru socket set that fits into the end of the handle that works as a ratchet.
Reversible Jaw Feature –
Changing the jaw from Adjustable wrench to pipe wrench is fairly quick, it took me about 20 seconds to change to the pipe wrench feature, pretty good for an old guy. The face of the jaw has a built in scale as well that goes from 0 to 1-1/4″ in 1/16″ increments; a pretty handy feature. There is a standard scale on one face of the jaw and a metric on the opposite face.
Pass Thru Socket Wrench Feature –
This is a step up feature that gives you one more use for the same tool. The socket included are a perfect match for the wrench end.
There are 10 Sockets that come with this set varying in size from 3/8″ (10mm) to 3/4″ (19mm). The unique design of these sockets is that each socket is designed to fit a standard size bolt and a metric bolt that is close to the standard size.
- 3/8″ – 10mm – Everyone knows that a normal 3/8″ socket is too small for a 10mm bolt, but not this one!
- 7/16″ – 11mm
- 15/32″ – 12mm
- 1/2″ – 13mm
- 9/16″ – 14mm
- 19/32″ – 15mm
- 5/8″ – 16mm
- 11/16″ – 17mm
- 23/32″ – 18mm
- 3/4″ – 19mm
I am in awe of the design features that Crescent has built into this adjustable wrench. It is a great addition to any tool box.
Crescent Pass Thru Adjustable – Great Features + Reasonable Price
We all know the drill, anytime someone comes up with some great new product it usually comes with a great new price.
But Crescent has this product priced well within the norm for a high quality product.
Now I know, you can buy a quality adjustable wrench all day long for anywhere from $8.00 – $15.00. But this wrench also doubles as a pipe wrench. If you add a pipe wrench to you basket now you need to open up your wallet a little more, a pipe wrench will probably cost you at least another $15.00. Add in a small socket set and now you have to spend even more $$.
You can find these wrenches at Amazon and Home Depot. Considering all its features I call that a reasonable price.
Looking for a great new tool to add to your collection?
The more I handle this tool and admire its feature the more I am glad I choose to buy one. I bought the first one as a Christmas gift for my grandson and liked it so much I bought one for myself.
As always I hope this post has helped you in some way. If you have any questions about this product or any of my posts please leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
