old pipe wrenches


Scrap guy came by today with dozens of old pipe wrenches. All very heavy cast iron, one of them must weight hundred pounds. Most of the smaller ones the jaws are pretty rounded off, and the large ones are just too heavy to use practically. What the heck, I paid around 20 cents a pound but now I wonder what should I do with these.

Got some pictures?
Simple enough to change the jaws, most just have a roll pin holding them in place.
Some sand blasting and spray paint and they will be like new, sell them on Craigs list.

Those bigger ones are worth quite a bit----sell them on E-bay or Craigs list---
