If you look at this thing you would laugh and ask who would buy this stuff. I picked it up because it was on sale for a really good price, and honestly I don't think I would buy it at full price. But, there are plenty of times where I can't find a 6 sided wrench/socket at the house and a 12 sided just keeps rounding a nut/bolt. Or when my normal adjustable wrenches keep loosening themselves. This is a good tool to have around and it looks as well built as a decent pair of vice grips. I have only used it a few times, so I cannot vouch for the durability of the product, but I can predict now that there will be plenty of times where this wrench will allow me to complete a task without spending an hour searching for the missing socket/wrench or having to take a trip to the store.
I've had this wrench since Christmas, and just used it this week. It's a great idea, but the quality of the wrench is sorely lacking. The movable jaw is the loosest I have ever seen. We all know that Craftsman quality has gone downhill, but this is built to the lowest tolerances I've ever seen in an adjustable tool. Just shockingly poor. As I used it I had to keep tightening the jaw. My other complaint is that the locking movement of the jaw during locking at a 25 mm opening is only about .3 mm. If the tool was built to tighter tolerances it would probably be good enough, but in this tool it's inadequate. I would love to have this tool with the traditional Craftsman quality, but that ship seems to have already sailed.
as I get older, I find I am not as strong as when I was younger
I am not mechanically inclined, but I do try to do some small jobs around my house. This wrench is perfect for me as it adjusts easily and grips firmly.
