A century after the development of the first Bahco adjustable wrench, the company is launching the first of a new series of adjustables through its exclusive UK agent Electro Tools (Bahco).The new 9072 wrench features a 'warm' handle made from thermoplastic elastomer. The material is used to both improve the feel of the adjustable wrench in the hand and to improve resistance to oil and grease.Adjustment is also made easier by larger recess, which allows greater access to the adjusting screw. The steel body of the wrench is smoothly rounded and is claimed to exceed ISO strength standards. The jaws are also said to be equally strong in both directions.
