I got this sweet new Trimo 21" wrench in the mail today. I have wanted one of these for a long time. Got this from the ebay for 50$ including shipping. I bought one of these 6 months ago and it got stolen in the mail, I got a refund at least.


This thing is just about as big as a 24" pipe wrench and heavier.

A fellow coworker goes everywhere with his trimo. Never had one though.

I fell in love with it the moment I opened it. I oiled it and then punched my name on it with a very nice set made in fall river mass and of a similar vintage as the wrench.

What amazes me is you took the picture on your glass stove in the kitchen...
SSHHHH...... Don't tell my wife! I wanted the stove top to act as a good size reference. The lighting was good too. :biggrin:

Nice wrench! I got mine off eBay awhile back also. Pat’d 12-19-11. Wife and daughter said my pics were boring...

That's hilaious. Googly eyes do make most things better. I would like the smaller sizes but don't really need them. I have up to a 15" crescent wrench. The upper jaw on this new wrench is almost as big as my hammer and even heavier. I actually used it to punch the letters onto the body!

Well, I use my 15" crescent for holding prv's/regulators and it isn't always quite big enough. Sometimes hex unions too.



Are you implying I need a reason to buy nice tools? This thing is mint. Even still has the facing marks on the jaws. Doesn't even appear to have been used as a hammer more than once.


If you think buying nice tools I won't use is wrong, than you agree with my wife, shh don't tell her.

Chrome tail pieces, commercial toilet with chrome flush valves, or free standing tubs...


It's really too big for any of those. It's basically equivalent to a 24" pipe wrench.

It didn't seem that big in the picture, so it's only good for 2" black pipe unions???



No, I'd grab it for 1-1/4" too. Ball valves have flats too ya know ;0

the standard wrench with teeth has a much wider range of use, so to take up room on the truck with something you may use once in a while...eh, I say no...but to buy and have it because you want it and may use it around the house..sure why not...
