Found this cool wrench for only $3 and couldn't resist adding to my tool box. Not sure I understand what they were thinking when they came up with this design. Metric on one end and English on the other? Smile

Three bucks??????

Been in maybe 3 pawn shops, never saw any point to it, they would have that tool marked $25, you could always buy new tools for what the pawn shops around here charge.

Cool find, by the way. Probably not the handiest tool in use with the 2 big ends, but cool.

G706,

Congrats on your find. Like Paul said, I've never had much luck at pawn shops. Prices are usually way too high for my liking. I did find a set of chrome-plated 1/2 inch drive sockets one time for $25.00 or $30.00. No name tools, but I've used them a lot.

Thanks for the pic. That sure is a one-of-a-kind wrench.

Can"t complain about pawn shops myself when I "did" a place at the flea market I was hooked up with 2.
One knew,and liked guns & jewlery,thought tools etc got the store dirty,plus knew little about tool value. I bought most of those things wholesale,some months half a pickup bed at a time.
Lot of people say most stuff is stolen,but this guy was tight with law,required photo I.D.,and took photo of seller.In that town the hot stuff went to a shop that did business DIFFRENT.
I got a computer generated invoice for everything I bought,and still have a file on them.
I"ve seen some pawn,pay off [or intrest] some items as long as a year??? Pickup 1 st,repawn late in month.
He had open records for LE,and held EVERYTHING at least 30 days.
Finally sold out to a retired banker,and I lost my "hook"

Only thing wrong with that wrench is there is no hook for hanging it. That and I try to avoid using a crescent wrench at all costs, only as a last resort.
