Milwaukee Adjustable Wrenches

Milwaukee's new line of adjustable wrenches are due to hit stores sometime this month. I know you're thinking that the world has enough adjustable wrenches, and I basically agree with you on that point, but the Milwaukees look to be something a little special. I got to play around with a few samples during last year's media event and they've made a couple significant tweaks to the standard, old 3-for-$10 design.

First, they've created more of a connection between the knurled thumb turn and the body of the wrench. Now there are five threads that make the connection and not four like on other wrenches. This reduces any loosening of the jaw setting. Secondly, they've bumped up the ergonomics on the handle, even though it's an all-metal design. I remember standing there thinking, "man, this is one of the most comfortable wrenches I've ever held."

I haven't used one yet in any kind of real world setting, but given Milwaukee's general track record in the hand tool category, this is an exciting release. Not sure where they'll be sold, but Home Depot is a good bet.

There are going to be six wrenches available, ranging from a 6-inch all the way to a 15-inch. There will also be a 8-inch wide jaw model.
