The Legendary Speed Wrench

I had no use for a Speed Wrench when I was a kid, but I watched this commercial so often, I one time asked for it for Christmas. I never got it, which is probably for the best. How often does an 8 year old need to tighten a bolt?

One thought on “The Legendary Speed Wrench

  1. My father and I both got these …not from the TV offer, they were selling them at the dollar shop about two years after they came out, when everyone realized the stripped more nuts than they grabbed! Probably still have one somewhere…
