The Monkey wrench Otherwise known as gas grips, this is a traditional type that comes with a straight and long handle. The tool's forged metal makes it highly durable. This type wrench is mostly used on projects of large scale. In this type of wrench, the handle is extremely smooth and the size of the jaw can vary. Some of these tools are so large that they can even grip a large pipe of say, 3 inches.
When tightening a bolt to the proper torque, it is essential that your hand which is pulling the wrench is cantered on the handle of the wrench. Having it too close or far from the socket actually affects the ultimate torque value you are tightening to. Moving your hand closer to the socket reduces the total "foot-pounds" of torque you are applying, while moving it away, closer to the end of the wrench increases the "foot pounds of torque you are applying."
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.
