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:
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...
The titanium adjustable wrench fills a hole in my work EDC. I am an EMT and often find myself tightening a bolt or nut on the ambulance or equipment. Now instead of struggling with a pair of pliers, I have the perfect too weird me all the time. Strong, lightweight, compact, and non-magnetic, the titanium adjustable wrench is everything I needed and nothing I didn't. The action was a little gritty at first but smoothed out after the light application of some moly grease.
This little titanium wrench is a great companion to multi tool pliers as when you need a hold back to complete tightening
Its a small crescent wrench made from titanium. The size makes it great for small spaces. The weight makes it great for any kind of portable tool kit you want a small crescent wrench in.
Likely a small niche market, but this is welcome and awesome. Arrived Sat, used Monday on coax satellite connection hook ups, SMAs, etc.
They made it small enough and the edges smooth enough, and with the titanium light enough, that it can sit comfortably on my keychain. It complements having a leatherman in the field, since now you can hold both sides, or tighten nuts without marring.
Literally feather light. It could certainly be marketed to climbers. Often an old bolt needs the nut tightened. Or backcountry skiing or boating. At less than an ounce, and with all the holes for hanging, this would really round out a bolt or big wall kit. Also some physicist friends will appreciate the very non-magnetic aspect. Strap a bismuth scale to the handle, and you could likely use it in MRI strength fields.
Mechanism is solid and smooth, with enough play that it doesn't get locked up.
One thing I would like to see is jaw opening rulers laser etched, mm one side, imperial the other. And also a slightly narrower beak, to get in there on switch or indicator retaining nuts.
Really a unique tool which I will put to heavy use. Thanks!
