Xerox? And, in the South, Coke...?

Alright, alright-- I'll respect Cooper Tools' copyright on its trade name of Crescent for its line of tools, and just refer to it as an "adjustable wrench" from now on.

Now, I think I need a kleenex-- these allergies are killing me!

Of course not to be confused with the crescent wench as I remember fondly from my high school days. One you liked because it had grease on it, the other didn't like you because you had grease on you.

Boy, when I got the 52 FC, I didn't realize that it came with permission to buy more tools. What a bonus. I can hardly wait to get started. ....On the FC as well.

Smile Hi To All The Tool Junkies,

As a former Mac Tool Dealer and a machine shop owner one can never have to many tools. Tools are like dope we never have enough.Give me more. I do not know when I will use them but I do need them now.
Regards from Russell in sunny and warm Tucson Az.

I have an adjustable crescent wrench marked Crescent Tools, Jamestown NY. and a right angle phillips screw driver marked Phillips. Does that count? Original tools, in a tool box I inhereted from an uncle. Wonder where Cooper bought Crescent? When did Phillips invent the double bladed sloped screwdriver? Say that real fast.

So many Tools, So little Time.........

Life is short, get'em all while you can.....

That thought process works for my wife when it comes to shoes, I would never pay that much to rub them all over the ground.

OK, how about Wyoming open end wrench set? Also useful is the Wyoming arc wrench. But that is another application.
