Crescent Wrenches A to Z

Collection of crescent wrenches runs an alphabetical gamut.

Ampco adjustable wrench Ampco, which began producing tools in 1914, is known for its line of all-brass tools. Steel-on-steel contact can generate sparks, but brass, which is softer than steel, won’t – making brass tools safer for use in specialized applications, like a gunpowder factory or a refinery. Still in business today, Ampco has produced a varied line of brass tools, including chisels, hammers and wrenches.
