Interesting, appreciate its an american chart but some designs there like the stillsons which have not changed much in 100 years
I've seen the Westcott style being made by a roustabout with a scaffold pole
If you are into adjustable spanners, a book by Ron Geesin, The Adjustable Spanner, ISBN 978 1 78500 035 1 is essential reading. He has a collection of over 3000!
^^^^^ lucky for him they're adjustable, if they wern't just think how many spanners he'd have in his tool box
I have some similar to the agricultural style, they live in my big box and only come out when needed. Usually a seized pump union that needs persuading and no room for stilsons
I have one as well. It fits some of the fittings on Sprinkler systems.
I also have a version of the agricultural adjustable spanners.
Wasn’t when the Iron Man broke down by any chance?
Dread to think, bit of a nightmare with all the metric and imperial options

My first attempt at electrolysis.
Different pitch threads.
Is that a pipe cutter of some sort? With the bottom jaw being a blade perhaps?
That's a great poster, I might try and print a big one off for the shed wall.
The Elgin adjustable alligator wrench was first produced in the late 1800 and I believe the company sold out to another company (if I recall correctly) before the 1900. Alligator wrenches were popular for a all in one wrench that could be carried easily. Most do not work all that well, many were cheap although a lot of the major tool makers made them at one time. Most you find are pretty worn out or abused long ago so they work even less well than when they were new.
You have clear, unallocated wall space? What you need is more 'stuff'!
I'm desperately trying to come up with an excuse, but I just can't.
