Bahco is giving away 10 of its popular 9031 ERGO 8” wide jaw adjustable wrenches to lucky HVP readers.
Knowing that plumbers would often find an extra hand useful, Swedish craftsman J.P.Johansson invented a tool he called ‘The Iron Hand.’
It replaced fixed spanners with a single tool capable of gripping nuts and bolts of different sizes, just like the human hand.
That was 130 years ago, in 1888. Three years later he patented the first adjustable spanner, which evolved to become today’s toolbox essential, the adjustable wrench.
The master craftsman later linked up with colleagues to form a hand tool manufacturing company, combining their initials to call it Bahco.
Today, one of Bahco’s most popular adjustable wrenches is the 9031, renowned for its extra wide jaws.
Here are some of the tool’s key features:
