    Here's one I made a few years ago. That's a 1&1/4" wrench in there:

    I've made one of these before, and very similar to this. Much safer than double wrenching it like I have seen some do.

    The first time I saw such a tool was at my local auto-parts store.
    What interested me most was that it was made by Chestnut Tools, a local off-shoot from Lee Valley Tools founder Leonard Lee.

    You can still get that version here:
    https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop...r?item=09A0505

    Their version had magnets to help hold the wrench.

    Here are my versions:

    Not pretty, but pretty useful when you need them.

    The handle on the small one is 1" by 1/4" steel bar.
    The big one uses 1" square tubing for the handle.
    Both use cutoff scraps of steel angle.

    A good length of ally pipe over the handle of the spanner, can sure snap the head off bolts, lots cheaper than that fancy widget.
