If They Made It: Vise Grips and C-Wrench

Toolmonger » Blog Archive » Adjustable Wrench + Locking Pliers = Stanley’s MaxGrip: "Take a standard 10″ adjustable wrench and cross it with a set of locking pliers, and you’ve got Stanley’s new product: the MaxGrip locking adjustable wrench. As you might imagine, the locking portion of the tool provides a bit of extra force to help keep the jaws attached to the fastener."

Really, how many C-Wrenches does one person need? I just bought this thing:

Do I need another one too?

The vice grip c-wrench combo looks neat but would it be the right tool for the job?

Vice grips alone are adjustable, thought they typically do not have the flat gripping face that a c-wrench has.

looks cool. Though maybe more of a money suck than a really useful tool.

I would be interested in how the darned thing works.Does it need batteries or is it a spring loaded contraption?

There sure have been a lot of TV comercials for it what with fathers day and all.
