    In the video, the poster referred to the contraption as "an interesting conversation piece" but not very useful. There was a time long ago when I was "on the road" on a motorcycle. Crossed the country a couple of times, sleeping under bridges etc, typical of the times. I carried enough tooling to literally rebuild the machine on the spot. Such a tool would have been useful to me for the reduction of weight and physical size. I carried each of the tools individually although they took a lot of space. I also carried my "electrician's pouch" because a good electrician can find work almost anywhere. It would have been "handy" for that as well. Not very useful in a shop, but worth it's weight for portable use.

    It's not uncommon to see a hammer head of some sort attached to a wrench that fits the drawbar hex on a mill. Such a "hench"* is used to first loosen the drawbar and then hammer it gently to free the taper of whatever was held in the spindle by the drawbar.

    While what was shown resembles a hench, there would be no need of the adjustable wrench - the drawbar hex doesn't change its dimensions.

    Rather than attach a ratchet to an adjustable wrench, a much more useful idea is a homemade version of this Harbor Freight wrench...

    which has a 1/4 ratchet at one end and a 3/8 at the other. I find it to be a very handy tool indeed. With 1/4 to 3/8 and 3/8 to 1/4 adapters this wrench can be set up to hold two 1/4 sockets or two 3/8 or one of each.

    * My version of a hench is shown here...
