How to Use a Wrench as a Tool
On behalf of tvlesson.com, I'm Steve Anthony, a carpenter here in South Florida. In this clip in shoptools101, we’re going to talk about some of the various wrenches that you might want to have in your shop. Most common and versatile wrench is known as a crescent wrench. We also refer to it as a C wrench. This adjusts to any size bolt head that you might need to tighten or loosen. It had a very simple thumb screw. It opens and closes the jaws. This is very commonly use by theatrical riggers to hang lighting instruments and we put a piece of tie line at the end of it too. It gives us something to hold onto, hook up to our belts or whatever.
The C wrench is available in many different sizes. This is a pretty common size, but they also come in the much larger variety. And you occasionally see them in smaller variety as well. Other very common type of wrench is known as box wrench. These are available in all the standard sizes. This happens to be a 7/16ths. It’s the same in the opened end as the closed end in this particular case. You will also see them occasionally or quite often with a two different sizes of open end or two different sizes of box wrench. This is good for getting around the top of the bolt head. But if you can't get to it you can only get to the side, let’s say a knot you need the open ended wrench to get to that, and again available in many different sizes. It’s good to have a wide variety because you’ll never know what's you're going to need.
Now this particular box wrench is self-ratcheting number. Slip this over or bolt head and as you can see, it allows you to loosen or tighten without having to remove the wrench from the bolt. It’s very handy to have a few different sizes of this lying around.
Pipe wrench, it’s a heavy tool. This gives you the ability to clamp onto a piece of pipe, attach two pieces of pipe together. You just simply get it to the right width for the pipe that you're using and it will clamp on to the pipe and allow you to tighten or loosen the pipe as necessary. So that’s a brief overview of some of the different types of wrenches that you might want to have in your shop.
