The new Craftsman Professional(tm) Beak Jaw(tm) adjustable wrenches in 6-, 8-, and 10-inch lengths exceed ANSI Type I jaw capacity standards by over 20 percent. For the tough jobs, jaw openings are 1 1/8 inch for the 6-inch wrench, 1 3/8 inch for the 8-inch wrench and 1 1/2 inch for the 10-inch wrench. The extra-wide jaw openings allow these wrenches to grip and turn larger fasteners in confined spaces. Patented lean-profile jaws also help engage nuts and bolts in tight quarters. The beak jaw wrenches are constructed of durable, forged, heat-treated alloy steel with a corrosion-resistant plating. Wide-beam handles feature textured cushion-grips for comfort. Spring tension knurls help provide smooth operation, and standard and metric measuring scales are included for quick, accurate sizing. Made in the U.S.A., the adjustable wrenches are guaranteed forever through the Craftsman quality guarantee.

The latest ratcheting wrench offered by Craftsman utilizes the proven innovation of popular tools from previous years. The Craftsman Ratcheting Wrench is similar to the panel wrench, but a gear has been added to the box end. The wrench's handles are marked with "on" and "off" sides for tightening and loosening. A special gear release allows the user to disengage the ratcheting mechanism to remove the wrench from the fastener. This feature is especially handy when working in tight places or limited clearance areas. The wrench's turning radius is 12 degrees, compared to the 30-degree turning radius of a standard box-end wrench. The patented gear configuration eliminates play for efficient fastener turning. The grease-free design has few moving parts and that design safeguards against intrusive dirt and solvents. The lean shaft and thin head profile provide access into limited clearance areas where ordinary ratchets and sockets can't go.
