Limit 4 Per Customer
Now hermetically sealed!
Members of the military Explosive Ordinance Disposal teams wanted a small, light, non-magnetic wrench for working on magnetically sensitive devices, and this is what we provide them:
Weighs: 26 grams. Less than a ounce
Grade 4 Titanium
Jaw Opening: .52”
6 Tether Holes
Marked "Titanium - CAGE: 5VKB6"
This is a project we have been working on for two years. Most wrenches are forged from tool steel, but It was determined that this wrench must be Titanium. Why Titanium? It’s extremely corrosion resistant. Featuring No/Low magnetic signature. Extraordinarily strong, titanium possesses a greater strength-to-weight ratio than stainless, steel or aluminum. Titanium weighs about 60% less than steel in density, producing tools at nearly half the weight of steel.
This means that the wrench needed to be machined out of a solid billet of Titanium. Making a adjustable wrench in the machine shop i s a lot more complicated than it sounds.
The Ti Wrench is fully heat treatable and scroll down to see one Tony Fabrioli made for himself. The possibilities are endless...
Excellent made wrench. Small for carry and lightweight. Definitely recommend

It's a Featherweight
I got this to save weight in my bicycle tool kit. In order to make it the most useful it could be, I filed off just a little of the leading edge of the screw so that it stops a little later against the toothed piece allowing the jaws to open 2mm more. This allows the wrench to work on 15mm bicycle axle bolts eliminating the need to carry a 6 -inch wrench thus saving precious ounces for weight-weenie bicyclists. This wrench is super nice!

Mini Adjustable Wrench
I have a pair of these wrenches for my portable HAM radio kit for working on antennas. Super light weight and perfect to keep weight down. Sure, these are not cheap, but titanium nonmagnetic tools are hard to come by.
My recommendation is to tighten up the tolerances between the Adjustable screw and the adjustable arm interface. It works fine, but I think the tool would be better with tighter tolerances.
Buy these while you can.

Cutie perfect thank you very much you guys rock

Cute, light, but works hard.
This is perfect for carrying in kit. Mine is in with all the radio antenna adapter hardware so I can easily ensure that the SMA connectors are tight. I can see this little guy serving all over the place.
It's tough too, and the adjustment screw turns easily, even when under stress.
Now I want to find an adequately hot and pinpoint flame so I can do some color effects on the handle.
