And while we wait until tomorrow  :D
The reason I shouldn't be allowed out on my own  :ahhh ….

Aren't they pretty!  I've got a similar picture to post once I take it. Plus another with vintage adjustables, a third with 6 inch and under adjustables (which just grew considerable thank you very much) , and multitool adjustables.  Not entering just joining the fun. I shouldn't be allowed out either.   :facepalm: :ahhh

Not my official entry yet.
Just thought I would post these as they are on my desk atm.
The little 100mm one usually rides with my Surge.
The Gerber one opens equal to the six inch.
The six inch was a cheap one that grandad gave me twenty plus years ago.

My dad...

"That junk only grabs 2 sides of the nut. And it can even shift it's width while doing so. Don't spend time and money on that junk and buy a decent wrench set!"

Which I still haven't got :facepalm:

He's also the man who said "powered drills to drive screws?! When you can do your job all day with just a screwdriver, that is the moment you're allowed to grab a drill"

As a result I still prefer a screwdriver over a powered tool when installing alarm components. My co-workers watch in awe and shake their heads but find out at the end of the day that I installed faster then they did.
I need to carry my screwdrivers and pliers in my pockets, a small ladder and a battery powered hammer drill. I can carry all that at once. While they also have to carry a powered driver, meaning they have to walk a second time every time, and switch/charge batteries for that extra device too.

Only now I understand the old man :dd:

Alrighty, this is my entry. However, if I win please send the prize to someone else. Thank you badwolf and Sparky.   :cheers:

This one sat neglected for many years.
An old lady wanted her garden shed cleaned out.
Everything was to go to charity except tools which her sons had first pick from.
They left this bahco and a couple cold chisels.
I remember being pretty happy that day.

Twenty plus years later it still makes me happy. Have saved the day with it many many times. It's definitely a toolbox favourite.

I bought this one a while back from a junk shop.
Handle had been broken... still cool and useful though.
Not exactly an adjustable spanner but I thought I would share.

I tend not to use adjustables if I can help it. My "shift anything" spanners are the Richmond Metrinch 4WD. Each one covers a decent mix of sizes (in both metric and antique systems) due to how they work, and they actually do a damn good job of shifting nuts and bolts that someone else has already shagged up with an adjustable before you got there  :D They do still have the potential to bruise the flats due to point contact, but at least they'll shift it, and not just round it off.

Like a few others, I prefer using a dedicated box or open-ended wrench, but it's hard to beat the versatility and convenience of an adjustable: they work on both metric, SAE, and Whitworth nuts and bolts.  :D 

I've got a few different sizes, ranging from 4" to 15". While the box wrench reigns supreme in my garage or hobby room, it's the adjustable I have with me when walking or driving around. In my motorcycle tool kit I keep a few key box/open wrenches and specific sockets, but I also have an adjustable for the unexpected.

I find an 8" adjustable to be the most useful all-around size, but my favorite is probably this 4" Diamond Horseshoe adjustable. Slips easily into a bag or pocket and has proven useful in a number of situations when I don't have the right tool at hand. And it's often just quicker and easier to pull a 4" out of a bag or pocket for some small job. Paired with a multi, it's a versatile combination for EDC.  :tu:
