I would like to know if have any small straight pipe wrenches? Like for 1/8” & 1/4” pipe?

yes, 6 and 8 inch are available according to the web page. but only cast iron, not aluminum.

What amount of torque is the 24"" and 36'' wrench rated for?

Asked by plumbertom September 28, 2014

Answers

My answer may sound non-technical but I can hang suspended off the ground holding onto the 24", 36" and 48" wrenches. I have done this many times in tightening and loosening pipes and the wrenches show absolutely no signs of misuse. I weigh 175 pounds. I guess you could do the math: 350 foot/pounds for the 24", 525 foot/pounds for the 36" and 700 foot/pounds for the 48". This would still not be the maximum these wrenches could deliver.

whats the opening?

Durability
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
I’ve got 13 wrenches on the truck. If it isn’t rigid it is in a ranch. However my newest 14 inch aluminum chipped a tooth. I also dropped it off a scissor lift. Can’t really knock the brand considering I dropped it from 20 feet in the air. Still wouldn’t go to a job site without my wrenches. my threader or or my 2 press tools.

The aluminum line of pipe wrenches (stright or off set) are a great set of tools to have on our vehicles for our use in the water industry
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
In the water industry we utilize most if not all the aluminum line of pipe wrenches. They are lighter in weight than the iron pipe wrenches and just as durable.

Fabulous tools
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
My 40 plus years of remodeling, plumbing & gas has been cut short by a heart surgery and 6 grafts, but your tools are still going strong. I’ve seen cheap Chinese wrenches break in half but never Rigid. Used them in Wrightsville Beach & Wilmington, N. Carolina, to Raleigh, to Virginia mountains and Alabama. Unlike politicians Rigid tools are utterly reliable ! The Commercial flex/drain and residential 2”-4” drain machines are on this Veterans’ wish list. BUY AMERICAN. Buy RIGID . - Mark Kelley and Vince Hunt.

Great wrench but...
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
Wrench broke at black part of teeth. Rest of wrench functions well. Ridgid needs to work on how they build their metals.
