Customer Reviews

Made in Spain, Quality wrench Professional wrenchers praise this adjustable as a quality wrench, and high quality wrenches are near impossible to find in stores. It seems some store wrenches will have casting/machining imperfections that make them annoying or impossible to use, like hitching when adjusting, or lots of play in the jaw. Now, if you just need a wrench, go ahead and get one from the big box stores, but if you want more quality get one of these. Of note however is the recent switch to Spanish manufacturing, whereas previously they were made in Sweden and praised for excellent quality. I do not have a Swedish made model to compare, but it seems to be of high quality. When it arrived, it has the standard tool warehouse dirt and a sticky anti-corrosion coating, which is easily removed using some rubbing alcohol and a towel. Just make sure not to use rubbing alcohol or a solvent on the lubricated parts, but if you do just oil them with some light oil. They polished up nice and hopefully will provide a lifetime of service. We will see if Spanish Quality will hold up, as I am new to Spanish tools. 4Comparison of Ten Adjustable Wrenches This review covers ten adjustable wrenches (nine new, one old), including this one. This updated review includes 3 additional wrenches compared to my original review. Here's the list of adjustable wrenches that I bought.Products in this review:#1: Urrea 708#2: Channellock 808W 8" Chrome Adjustable Wide Wrench#3: Klein Tools 507-8 8-Inch Extra-Capacity Adjustable Wrench#4: JH Williams AP-8A 8-Inch Adjustable Wrench#5: BAHCO 8071-R-US 8 Inch Black Phosphate Finish Adjustable Wrench#6: Ridgid 86907 8-Inch Adjustable Wrench#7: Craftsman 8" (approximately 10 years old)#8: TEKTON 2310 8-Inch Adjustable Wrench#9: JH Williams 13408 Chrome Adjustable Wrench Set, 8-Inch#10: Titan 208 8" Adjustable WrenchObjective:My objective is to find a good quality adjustable wrench. I've chosen to look at 8 inch adjustable wrenches to keep the purchasing cost reasonable. I imagine I will also acquire the corresponding 6, 10 and 12 inch models of the one I choose. I define a good quality wrench as having:1. Smooth mechanism that doesn't grab when turned2. Jaws that stay fixed, have minimal wobble and stay parallel3. Smooth machining of tool with no sharp edgesI chose these adjustable wrenches as examples of both USA produced and internationally produced wrenches, including some so-called industrial brands. I also added into the group an old Craftsman wrench I have (#7). I did not purchase #1, #3 and #7 on Amazon.Properties of the adjustable wrenches:#1: Urrea 708: 262g, 24.7mm opening, made in Mexico#2: Channellock 808W: 256g, 31.9mm opening, made in Spain#3: Klein 507-8: 219g, 29.5mm opening, made in USA#4: JH Williams AP-8A: 256g, 28.6mm opening, made in USA#5: Bahco 8071-R-US: 260g (with cardboard label), 28.2mm opening, made in Spain#6: Ridgid 758: 265g, 28.2mm opening, made in USA#7: Craftsman 8" (approx 10 years old): 266g, 29.3mm opening, made in USA#8: Tekton 2310: 232g (with label), 26.3mm opening, made in China#9: JH Williams 13408: 285g, 30.2mm opening, made in China#10: Titan 208: 257g (with label), 25.1mm opening, unknown country of originInitial impressions:#1: Urrea 708: 3/5 for smoothness, 3/5 jaw wobble, sharp finishing near jaws. Urrea used to be the Mexican arm of the industrial tool brand Proto. My rating: 2 stars.#2: Channellock 808W: 5/5 smoothness, 3/5 jaw wobble. Made by Irega, a well regarded manufacturer of adjustable wrenches in Spain. Seems to be less expensive to purchase the Channellock versus the corresponding Irega model. My rating: 5 stars.#3: Klein 507-8: 5/5 smoothness, 4/5 jaw wobble, short jaws, lightest weight. Interesting history, evidently Klein wrenches started off as a licensed version of a premium Japanese brand of adjustable wrenches. My rating: 5 stars.#4: JH Williams AP-8A: 4/5 smoothness, 2/5 jaw wobble, body casting not smooth. My rating: 2 stars.#5: Bahco 8071-R-US: 4/5 smoothness, 3/5 jaw wobble. As I understand it, if you purchase a Snap On adjustable wrench, it's a rebadged Bahco. Evidently these used to be made in a factory in Sweden and I've seen it said that there was a drop in quality when production was moved to the Spain factory. My rating: 4 stars.#6: Ridgid 758: 4/5 smoothness, 3/5 jaw wobble. My rating: 4 stars.#7: Craftsman 8" (approx 10 years old): 2/5 smoothness, 2/5 jaw wobble. My rating: 2 stars.#8: Tekton 2310: 4/5 smoothness, 3/5 jaw wobble. My rating 3 stars.#9: JH Williams 13408: 4/5 smoothness, 2/5 jaw wobble. My rating 2 stars.#10: Titan 208: 2/5 smoothness, 1/5 jaw wobble. My rating 1 star.Verdict:The worst wrench in my opinion was #10, the Titan branded wrench. I measured the jaw sloppiness to be 50% more than any other wrench in my comparison. My other least favorites were the Urrea and both of the JH Williams. My favourites were the Channellock and the Klein closely followed by the Bahco. I bought the black phosphate version of the Bahco due to the cost of the chrome version being too high. The Channellock are made by the well regarded Irega company in Spain. Based on the WF stamped on the wrenches, I believe three of the USA wrenches are made by Western Forge (#4, #6, #7). Out of the three Western Forge wrenches, I think the Ridgid is the nicest. The older Craftsman is less smooth than I remember, probably since it's not a new wrench. Ultimately I think I would be happy with the Channellock, Klein, Bahco and Ridgid in that order.Final Thoughts:I prefer a smoothly operating tool. If the Klein had longer jaws and was less expensive it would likely have been my choice (and still would be perhaps if weight was a big priority like for a portable tool bag). However given all the factors, including value for money, the Channellock (Irega) is the one I kept. I also suggest the Knipex pliers wrenches (Knipex 8603180 7-Inch Pliers Wrench) as a premium (and expensive) alternative to adjustable wrenches. 4Buyer beware: no warranty at all from Bahco/Snap-On! I have one of these 4" wrenches, so I bought the 6" because I like them so much. They really are fantastic wrenches, usually unbelievably good machining for a smooth, tight jaw fit.Unfortunately, I received one with a machining error, and learned some nasty things about their warranty.TL;DR: Bahco does not provide ANY warranty for tools bought via Amazon! The Amazon return/replace system is all you get. The seller is OUTRIGHT LYING by listing a lifetime warranty for this tool, it's spelled out in black and white that there is absolutely no warranty for Bahco tools sold via Amazon. Read on to learn more.Bahco/Snap-On Industrial Brands considers Amazon a "third party" seller, and as such they will not honor their warranty. This means the only "warranty" you get is the replacement period from Amazon, which I believe is 90 days, not the "Snap-On Industrial Brands Lifetime Warranty" as the seller lists. If you buy from Amazon instead of one of their "official" distributors, Bahco/Snap-On does not care about you, and does not stand by their products AT ALL.The full story:These are pretty straightforward to disassemble, so I found there was about a 1/32" ridge on the flat face inside the main wrench body where the jaw mates with it. Whenever you set the wrench below about 1/4", it got extremely tight and difficult to move. It almost "worked", but it definitely did not work like a $25 wrench should.Since I knew what the problem was, I fixed it myself with one of those cheap diamond grit needle files in about 15 minutes. Filed the ridge down flush with the rest of that surface, flushed all the grit out, oiled it up, and put it back together. Works like a charm, probably last me my lifetime.I was still a little irritated that my $25 wrench required a repair out of the box, so I sent Bahco an email asking if they could send a replacement. With so many brands like Tekton, Sonic, ChannelLock, etc having excellent warranty service now, I figured it would be a piece of cake and they'd make it right by sending me another wrench. Boy was I wrong. They sent me an email with not so much as one "sorry" informing me that since I purchased through a "third party", I would need to take up the issue with them. Absolutely useless, and infuriating since it means that my $25 wrench has absolutely zero warranty. On further investigation I found out they're right, this is an excerpt from the Snap-On Industrial Brands warranty:"Snap-on Industrial Brands warrants that its products shall befree from defects in workmanship and materials for the usablelife of the product. This warranty is limited to products purchasedfrom authorized Snap-on Industrial Brands distributors. Snap-onIndustrial Brands, at its sole option, will repair, replace or granta credit for product that does not comply with this warranty."Amazon is not listed as an authorized Snap-On Industrial Brands distributor. This means SNAP-ON, BAHCO, WILLIAMS, CDI TORQUE, SIOUX, AND ANY OTHER SNAP-ON INDUSTRIAL BRANDS PRODUCTS SOLD VIA AMAZON ARE SOLD WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY!After this, I think I'll steer towards ChannelLock and Tekton wrenches in the future, because Snap-On's handling of this situation has been terrible. It's a shame, because these are really the best wrenches I've ever used, but it is incredibly disappointing that they refuse to honor their warranty for a wrench purchased brand new less than 10 days ago just because it's not one of the retailers in their "old boys' club" of authorized sellers. 1Very nice tiny wrench This wrench is nicely made. One star off due to a slight wobble from front-to-back on the adjustable piece, but it's still entirely usable and otherwise solid. The lateral movement (what you would consider the adjustable size) has very little slop at all. The back of the package says: "Snap-on Industrial Brands" which was a nice surprise. The quality shows. Made in Spain. 4An expensive wrench The first thing I noticed about the wrench was that the head was thinner and the handle was thicker than my other wrenches. I consider this a good thing -- it's able to get into tighter areas and gives me more surface area in my hand. This also has a better balance. My other adjustable wrenches are weighted more toward the head whereas this one seems to rest more solidly in my hand. The wrench also "clicks" as adjust it; this is most likely to allow the wrench to maintain size without drifting open wider as I use it. The big negative is the price. I was able to get a good "used" one from Amazon for 22 bucks, which is still high. I'm not sure I would pay north of 30 bucks for this wrench.** Update March 30, 2016 **After some light usage, the plating on the wrench moving jaw peeled off. This irritates me more than anything, since I did spend more for this than the Craftsman I was using, and the Craftsman lost some plating but only after 10 years of use. The amount of plating I lost (on the outside of the jaw so it's very noticeable) amounts to 3 spots of about 3/32" each. I'm guessing the plating didn't bond to the surface due to manufacturing conditions. I still like the design, but it's harder to justify buying another one. 3High quality tiny wrench. Handy to carry with my Leatherman I bought this after returning a 4 inch Crescent wrench to Home Depot when it turned out that the jaws were not parallel. For a few dollars more, I found this one made by Bahco, which I have found to be a consistently good tool manufacturer. The sides of the jaws are ground flat and there is a scale from 0 to 1/2" on one side and from 0 to 13mm on the other. Even with the widest opening specified at 1/2", it does just fit a 9/16" nut (your mileage may vary.) The adjustment is smooth and solid and there is not excessive play in the moving jaw. This is a tiny wrench and I would not use it to put heavy torque on big nuts, but it is handy to carry with my Leatherman for general stuff. I work with high school students on robots, and having a small wrench at my fingertips is handy. We use a lot of nuts and hex bolts in the 1/4" to 1/2" range, and though I generally discourage the use of adjustable wrenches, having this with me all the time comes in handy.One note on Amazon's listing: the picture is of a larger wrench that opens to 1". This could be misleading, though the text does correctly specify the maximum size. 5Best wrench for stage work I am an audio/lighting/video/stagehand guy and this is the lightest, strongest and tightest wrench I have used.I have used Husky, Kobalt, Crescent, ChannelLock, DeWalt and Stanley/Blackhawk/Proto. The lighter wrenches jaws get loose quickly, and the heavier duty ones are just too overbuilt for my needs. This Bahco is perfect. No matter what you are doing on a show, you need a C-wrench or you're useless. The jaws on this stay where you put it, it's black so matches your pants and doesnt draw attention if you have to run on stage with it, and it doesn't weigh you down when you're on a 12 hour call.I am about to order another one after over a year of abuse, only because someone stole it, not because it failed. 53 4-inch wrenches I bought 3 different 4-inch (nominal) adjustable wrenches for comparison: The Klein D506-4, the Channellock 804 and the Bahco 8069 RC US. I'll review them together. An older review, by another customer, of 8" wrenches may be of interest https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1VXP5HDPQ5FER .All three wrenches are made in Spain, and all are longer than 4" (4.3 for the Bahco, 4.5 for the Channellock and Klein.) And despite various information on their packages and on the Amazon listings, they all open to 9/16" (14mm.) They all have inch and metric scales on the jaws, but only the Channellock has a mark at 9/16; none have a mark at 14mm.The Channellock and the Klein are clearly related, having the same jaw, screw and pin in the familiar US style. The Channellock is stamped with the brand, but the raised Klein name is in the forging. The Klein also has a round hanging hole instead of the Spanish-style square hole.The Bahco (nee Sandvic, now part of Snap-on's Williams division) is quite different, having the traditional Swedish buttressed jaws that may be stronger but are a little bulky. Note that this "US" version has the familiar RH thread; LH is the norm in Sweden.All three have excellent quality, with little play in their slides and screws, good machining and parallelness. The Klein is only available with a vinyl grip and the Bahco, while beautiful, is stronger than I need a 4" wrench to be, so the Channellock gets my nod. Barely. 5Love it. I wanted something to go with my 5 knipex pliers. I like leatherman s but I d rather have multiple small tools than a tool with a lot of functions, but only able to use one at a time.This thing is tiny. It weighs next to nothing. However it is not a novelty tool or cheap keychain weight. This thing is actually made to be used. It will handle anything from 0 to a little over 1/2 . The adjustment is smooth but not loose. The finish is a nice dark gray.I m not a fan of the graduations, but I knew they were there. No harm no foul.Overall a great little tool. It started me down a road that has lead to adding a mini prybar, mini rachet, a 4 set of vise grips, and a 6 monkey wrench. All are small but have been useful working on small projects and small engine repair.Would highly recommend. 5GREAT adjustable wrnech, not the swill we grew up with that hardly fits and damages hardware! These are absolutely the BEST adjustable wrenches I have ever used. Learned of them from Keith Appletons live steam channel on Youtube. I'm buying more of these. They fit with no shake at all, unlike the "name brands" most in the US at least know these doesn't have wobbly moving jaws, the faces are ground nicely, the adjuster is a well fitted mechanism, not a stamped and plated kindasorta worm and rack bit of swill. Those who have bought them after hearing me tell how nice they are all agree. 5
