I have an old wrench I use at work and want to buy more and can't find it any where :(
Does anyone know if these are still around and where??

Double open end, with 1/2-7/16 on one end, and 3/8-5/16 on the other.
It is the perfect wrench for what I do.

I found other speed wrench's, but not with the 4 sizes in one :(

Appreciate any help, thanks Guys!!

A bit hard to tell from your pic, but is the open end on these the same? I got mine from Sears years ago. Assuming they're still available the set ranges from 5/16 to 5/8.

Those are speed wrenches, and still out there from a couple of places.
The one I want is a double open and double sized each end.
It's a perfect wrench, and if I was more intelligent, I would have bought 10 of them back in the day.

I'm trying to save the space & weight of carrying 4 wrench's when I climb, so I really need this exact wrench.

OK, gotcha. Your pic is a bit blurry on my end, and I was going by part of your title.

Look how pretty and unsused those are.

Almost like you just too 'em out of the package...

They aren't very strong, so they would not get a lot of use.
They are only for places you need a ratchet, but can't use a box end, like climbing telephone poles!!

interesting, I never seen a dbl open end wrench.
If you can't find them I wonder if you could have a 7/16-5/16 open end wrench modified to match the opening on your dbl wrench w/ an end mill in a mill?

I've done that before with big wrench's, but I actually need all 4 sizes, so this is the perfect wrench.
Different equipment I hang on the pole uses all 4 of these sizes, and sometimes you never know what the guy before you used, so you need to carry all 4 :(

I was hoping who ever made robo wrench was still around, I searched all morning and couldn't find jack except robo grib stuff.

Hell I even checked ebay & amazon for used or complete sets.
I would like to have one in every truck in case I forget to grab it when I switch vehicles.

Have you ever been to the GarageJournal forum? Helluva lot of tools in their classifieds, although it's been a while since I've been on it. Anyway, maybe a great place to ask those guys for some help finding those wrenches. I think it's worth a look. https://www.garagejournal.com/

Remembering that you're a pole climber............................that's the ONLY place I could see these wrenches working!...
Reducing your load weight, makes perfect sense!...


Curious though............................don't you run into rusted/corroded fasteners up there?...
Wouldn't these have a propensity to round them off?... :smt102
