Default Unusual Adjustable Wrenches

The movable jaw on this one is reversible. When reversed it can be used as an alligator wrench for square nuts.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

I would not want to use this wrench regularly. I found it to be fussy when setting the opening size. I suspect when the worm type became popular many of these went to scrap.

Some neat adjustable wrench’s there. And here when I seen one Home Depot a couple of years ago with a reversible jaw, I thought they came up with something new. I guess the old saying there really isn’t much new today, just a slight twist on an old thing is true.
