As its name suggests, the pipe wrench is used on for the maintenance and repair of pipes of the soft iron variety. A pipe wrench is also used on other fittings with a rounded surface like rods and bolts.
A wrench is an invaluable tool for general repair and maintenance. The grip and mechanical advantage it provides enables the user to apply torque to turn nuts and bolts.
The Pipe wrench Otherwise called the Stillson wrench, this wrench mostly finds use among plumbers. This tool can be very convenient to use when working in a tight spot where the need for gripping power of an adjustable wrench is most needed. The tool has rough jaws with which it can securely hold the pipe. The pipes can be fitted easily using this wrench as the jaws will help the pipe to stay in place firmly.
Of the two types of torque wrenches, the micrometer wrench is definitely the more accurate. Typically, they are rated as being accurate to four percent of torque set. However, this accuracy can easily be lost if the wrench is not reset to zero before storage. Beam wrenches don't have this possibility of losing their accuracy, but are less accurate right out of the box. The accuracy of these beam wrenches is typically 12 percent, but can be less on higher torque settings, especially if the operator's hand is shaking from the pressure they are applying.
Micrometer wrenches are pre-set to the required torque on a vernier scale. An internal spring loaded mechanism measures the torque. When the bolt is tightened to the desired torque it "clicks."
