Big Wrench

I have the World's Biggest Wrench that I built to draw attention to my small auto repair shop, Skyway Auto Repair. It's 25 ft. long, 6 ft. tall at the ends and 10" thick. It weighs about 1,000 pounds.

[Branden Strange, 11/25/2005]

Branden has thrown down the wrench in an open challenge to other W.L wrench builders... just a little longer than his, perhaps made of real metal... and loosening the nut helmet on an auto parts giant for bonus points.
