Crescent Adjustable Wrench Set – More Cool New Tools

combination adjustable wrench & socket wrenchI 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.

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.

  1. I’ve been searching for better quality tools for our machine shop and I’m tired of low-quality China-made tools that are proliferating the market. It looks like everything that’s sold today in shops offline are of low quality and some kind of “disposal” items. This set of tools that you shared looks better and deserve a try. I’d like to ask, compared to those low-quality tools, do they also require constant adding of lubricant oil so that they don’t get stuck of fixated? I asked because, our tools in our machine shop here do.

    • I believe normal care for any tool will keep it functioning for a long time.  I don’t usually oil my tools in my shop, but I do try to keep them clean and wiped off, especially after I have been using them on some kind of machinery.  

      There have been times when I have used a tool outdoors and they got wet or left out because I set them down.  Then I do use a little oil on moveable parts to make sure they don’t start rusting.  It doesn’t happen often but it happens.  Preventative care is always important.

  2. Great information! 

    It is good to know that there`s this 2-in-one kind of tool. It is not only an adjustable wrench but also a pipe wrench as well.  In my tool box, i would always like to it to be organized, and having something like this, i know my tools will be less crowded.

    Also, i think the prize is good too.. not too expensive. This is something handy and useful. I wonder, i hope it is also made up of good quality metal, something that doesn`t rust or break easily. 

    • I have had several Crescent brand products before now Hanna and I have always considered them to be high quality, so I expect this new product will hold up to all kinds of use…

  3. I am a tool-guy. Over the years, I have seen so many innovative tools that often promise more than they deliver. Nonetheless, I still am willing to try them out, and every once in a while, you find a winner that deliver a lot more than at first glance.

    This one is made be a brand I have trusted for many years, as evidenced by a cursory glance in one of my toolboxes (yes I have way more than one!)…Crescent has become a name almost like Xerox – you equate an entire tool type when you think of the name.

    This tells me that the tool is likely everything you mention and more, and is worthy of paying a bit more for, even though you have said it is not overpriced for what you get. I will check on this, as there are occasions when such a tool would come in handy for me around the house.   

    Thanks for a good and honest review!

  4. Wow, this is a tool to be handled and used by any professional workman. Its design is sleek and strong at thesame time making it very functional. Also its adjustable feature makes it a one size fits all kind of tool. Its a must have for every workman wanting to have a new wrench set.
