Default For the price of...

For the price of... 1x 24" ridgid aluminum pipe wrench I got all of this instead.

The 24"'s were on sale and they look very alike as the name brand. For the once in a blue moon need they should be perfect for the job.

The 36" aluminum was in a surplus pile. Once at the cash I had to argue the cashier because there weren't any bar code on it. She went to check it out and she couldn't find it. Then some other cashier looked up a paper catalog and wanted me to pay double the sticker price. I said no it's half that and she told me to go back and take a picture with to prove it.
I said you want me to run around the store doing your job! No you go do your job. I took my cashier to the wrenches and price tag and upon returning the number wasn't working. Anyway she punched something like a leaf spring part for 10$ less than the 36" pipe wrench price tag. Good enough for me!

And oh I had enough left over to buy myself a bag of chips!

24"....39.99$ on sale
36".... 69.99$ -idiot discount...59.99$
Bag of chips...3.69$

Total = One nice shopping day.

If you wonder a 24" ridgid is 146$ at HD

I haven't tried them, the 24" are princess auto. I bought the 24" to see if I can remove brass plugs on CI. The 36" will be used to hold the lugs of my 4runner when I need to spin something off.

I own an 18" from Canadian tire and I preferred it over my ridgid when I was pipe fitting.



Alas your amazon link shows how much more I have to pay...On this item no duty fees if a seller isn't an idiot to not forget to delare the nafta agreement on the shipping label. If it were made outside the US add another 40$ on top.

$93.00
+ $43.84 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Canada Details

Total witch exchange rate = 183.78 CAD
