I had the opportunity to use a Channellock adjustable wrench today, and it was an impressionable experience. The Channellock adjustable had very little play in the jaw, was relatively smooth to operate, and felt robust and sturdy. To top it off, the Channellock packed a huge jaw capacity into a small package.
The adjustable wrench also had a measurement/adjustment scale that was pretty useful and aided repeatability once we were used to them.
Sadly, I had to return the wrench to a colleague once I was done using it. I am now contemplating “losing” one of my Crescent wrenches so that it can be replaced with one of Channellock’s “extra wide” adjustable wrenches.
Channellock’s adjustable wrenches are made in Spain.
