I am a mechanic for the railroad. I take care of all the weird looking machines that maintain the tracks. Those wrenches are worth their weight in gold to me, especially when dealing with large hydraulic lines and stuff in tight areas where the head of a big adjustable wrench wont go. Here is a seldom known trick for breaking the big rusted hoses loose, use an air hammer on the corners of the fitting and push. I don't care how long its been on there or how rusted and tight that will bring it off. Even most mechanics don't know this trick but its a knuckle and frustration saver for sure.
