Default Dog wrench

I made this to use on my lathe dogs but found that is real handy for assemably work for starting and snugging up bolts. I annealed the female end of a six inch 3/8" drive extension and drilled for the handle.

My mid 70's Craftsman breaker bars for 1/2" and I think also for 3/8" had a handle accessory similar to that idea.
In about 40 years or so, I have yet to use them.
Sorry about the skewed pic; can't get it to load properly even though it is right side up on my computer .

Damn, I've been totin' a couple of them things around in my roll a way, all them years, never thought to stick 'em thru the hole in the end of the breaker bars.
My 3/8ths breaker bar handle is chewed up from my 6 and 8 inch fitsall's
Been belt sanded so many times ya can't read the "crapsman" on one side. (the rust gives anti slip properties, dontchaknow.)

I broke the little sliding "T" handle thingie's in the first couple of months with my squeaky new 450 piece "master set". Both of them bent with a little bit of help from a cheater pipe, then broke when I tried to straighten them.

AH YES, the joy of youthful ignorance coupled with brute force.

I have seen a few Rigid pipe wrenches bent from brute force (from 18" on up to a 48" wrench).
I have also seen one or two with part of the handle broken off about halfway up from the jaws.

I broke a 4 foot steel Rigid pipe wrench, brand new, not a mark on the paint, the Rigid rep replaced it, then requested to know how. He wanted to know how big the cheater was, I told him, no cheater. I put the new wrench on the pipe, slide a 3" piece of 3" pvc pipe over the handle, then pushed on the protected pipe wrench handle, with a Cat D8, wrench handle shattered, but the pipe broke free.

Seems to me that a D8 is a pretty good size cheater.

I've seen lots of busted up and f$)led up pipe wrenches too.

The only size of Rigid pipe wrench I haven't seen mangled up somehow was the 60". Heavy beast, no one wanted to use it....

Speaking of pipe wrenches and such, I had some locals plumb in some equipment with 2" sch 80 using a threader, wheel cutter and a 36"all Rigid brand tools. The biggest guy on the crew got to torque everything up. I have never seen anyone strip a 2" pipe thread without a cheater before......
