Best Wrench Reviews for 2021 | A Buying Guide

Wrenches are designed to tighten and loosen nuts, bolts, screws and other treaded items. Typically wrenches are well suited for tight areas where a lot of torque is needed.

Proferred Adjustable Plumbing Wrench Review

When most people picture a plumber’s wrench, they probably think of the long-handled, hook-jawed version associated with the trade for generations. Of course, they’d be correct – it’s still right tool for installing and removing pipes and fittings. But it’s certainly not the only wrench a plumber uses. We run into plenty of smaller hex […]

Craftsman Clench Wrench angled

Craftsman Folding Clench Wrench

The Craftsman Clench Wrench is an oldie, but goodie that we stumbled across the other day and had to share. It’s one of the more unusual tools we’ve seen in a while. It’s unusual because it’s a folding wrench. It’s unusual because it’s auto-adjustable. It’s unusual because…well, it’s just unusual. The Clench Wrench uses the […]

If anything, it might be fun to see the look on your Dad’s face when you give it to him on Fathers’ Day (the look will undoubtedly be some form of “What exactly IS this thing?”) The answer is a bit more complex. The R2 Rapid Wrench by Crescent (now a licensed name from Cooper Hand Tools) is part ratchet, part crescent wrench-turned-sideways and passed through a multi-dimensional wormhole.
