Ah, the old knuckle-buster crescent wrench! I like the way this shot focuses on the worm-gear adjustment. It looks pretty cool.

Another good closeup of a different type of wheel. Have you seen the electrically operated wrenches being sold by Sears? You make the adjustment by pushing a button!

Great shot Bynx. It has a really gritty feel to it.

Bynx,
That wrench looks worn quite a bit you must be fixing things. As noted before, the BW treatment gives the shots an additional dimension that makes them even more impactful.

Reminds me of one of my favorites as a kid, the Jetsons. George always came home exhausted after a long day of button pushing.

Nice shot.
