Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
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.
Typically, a pipe wrench is composed of an upper hook jaw and a lower heel jaw, both connected to a flat handle. The lower jaw is adjustable to the size of the metal object. Forward pressure on the handle pulls the jaws closer for ease of gripping and turning. Usually made of aluminum or steel, pipe wrenches are available in various sizes measured by the length of the handle.
An automotive tool set should contain a variety of common wrench sizes to handle automotive repairs while on the road. By having a wrench set in your vehicle you are prepared for any emergency car repairs that may be needed.
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.
