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.
Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
When storing your wrenches, a tool storage chest, wrench holder or a standard tool box can be useful. Tool boxes and cases for wrenches, include soft cases in rollout and box style, as well as heavy plastic cases or even heavy duty steel, titanium and aluminum toolboxes for the serious mechanic. Wrenches can be stored in tool chests, roll up cases, and will help you find the exact tool you need for getting extra leverage on a stubborn bolt.
