One of the things that made me join was seeing the logo for Homemadetool, the bent wrench. I've had to bend some cheap wrenches in my time. But as I was searching through my toolbox I came across one and wondered if there had even been a bent wrench post.
In my last tour as a wage slave I was millwright/mechanic on fruit packing equipment. One of the most complicated jobs that I inherited was building the scale section on a Pomone sizer. It was a very tricky complicated separate section that had to be build separately and then installed. I wish I had a picture because I can't begin to explain how complicated and tight it was to work on. So adjusting each scale foot that was a double nutted affair with tolerances around .001 was as little fun as I ever had twisting wrenches. So one day this came to me and it saved my life and what little hair I have left. It's basically a Craftsman 7/16" wrench mated to a 7/16" deep socket with the special grind and bend on the open end. Please excuse the stubby mit, but I felt it was important to show how this fit my hand.
