Updated Classic

Instead of the knurled worm gear we associate with a Crescent wrench, this one's jaws adjust with a sliding knob. It's quicker and more intuitive than thumbing a gear, plus the jaws lock under pressure. It's a good tool to have in your kit for light-duty tasks around the home.

8-inch, about $15; Crescent
