You can't go wrong with a crescent wrench. they are made well and have comfortable handles. they are sturdy, operate properly and do what they are supposed to do. I purchased this with the intent of working on my license plates, which it handled perfectly. However, the wrench can obviously be used for any job, since it is adjustable. It's so nice that the handle is protected, which helps the hands.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WarrenJim The "in between" size
The 8" Crescent wrench (item # AC28CVS) is, for me, the "in between" wrench. For small jobs I have the 6" Crescent and for larger jobs I have the 10" and 12" wrenches, but the 8" size is the "go to" for most of my garage/basement chores.
It seems to fit most of the jobs I work on (with a jaw adjustment from the closed position to a maximum of 1 1/8" inches). Of course the 10" and 12" wrenches will dial down to that range too, but the 8" just seems to be the more comfortable of the wrenches - especially since the 8" wrench has a rubberized sleeve on the handle. My larger Crescent wrenches did not come equipped with that feature and in cold weather that rubberized grip is nice to have!
The fit and finish of the wrench are fine, no mars or sharp edges when the wrench was taken out of the package.
Made in China for the Crescent brand the wrench is guaranteed "Forever". I've never broken a Crescent wrench but it's nice to have a guarantee, anyway.
The wrench comes with a laser edged scale on the wrench head, so you can "dial in" the appropriate size before putting the wrench to work. In cases where you can't easily get to the knurled adjustment knob once the wrench is in place that's a handy feature to have. See the attached photo.
I acquired this 8" Crescent wrench as a duplicate of the one hanging in my garage (an older model without the rubberized grip) - it will be very nice to have duplicate sets of Crescent wrenches in the basement and the garage; it seems like every time I was in one place the desired wrench was in the other!

The wrench does not adjust easily and does not hold a setting. Worse than the old one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Perfect tool and adjustable up to 1-1-1/8"
I love the style and wider grip of this adjustable Crescent wrench. Fits perfectly in my hand. This 8 inch Chrome tool has a cushion handle which makes it quite comfortable while using. I love the red colored cushion material. It stands out on a tool board or in your tool box. And the tool is of course adjustable up to 1-1/8". And Crescent Brand tools come with a guarantee forever. Not to many companies do that these days. I am very delighted with this adjustable wrench and plan to get the other sizes as a great addition to my tool chest. Thank you Crescent for a fantastic tool. A perfect addition to any persons tool chest.And thanks to Home Depot for providing the public with quality tools you can count on.

There are few things more frustrating than discovering you don't own a tool you thought you did, particularly since that typically happens when you're right in the middle of a project. For us, that project was unpacking and installing our new portable dishwasher. Turns out we didn't need this adjustable wrench after all (a pair of pliers worked better), but still it's a handy tool to have around.

This is a great addition to the tool box. I have a set of wrenches in fixed sizes, which is great when you know exactly what you'll need, but for those "mystery bolts," having a good, adjustable wrench is vital. I especially like the cushioned grip and the sizes etched in the wrench for those times you actually know the size. It eliminates the guesswork.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jrmccul I like it
Since I've tried to dip my tools in plastic dip I wish they came out like this wench. The cushioned handle makes it easy to grip, it doesn't get hot when you set it down and doesn't conduct electricity. The scales make it easy to get to the bolt size quicker. It's nice to loosen a positive battery cable and not arc your wrench to the fender. (Accidently of course))
