Large adjustble Monkey or Spanner wrench for boiler and pipe fittings?
Planning to remove the two-inch boiler port plug and install a skimmer valve at the end of this season and I'm not fond of adding teeth marks to the plug or to any more of the radiator valve nuts.
So the thought is to add a large adjustable wrench to use as an alternative to the 18-inch Stillson wherever possible. Have a four-foot cheater pipe that works well.
Which is better, a 24-inch spanner wrench or a 14-inch-plus monkey wrench? Or would it make sense to purchase a vintage monkey wrench on eBay? Brand recommendations welcome.
Or is it possible and better to obtain a few huge fixed size wrenches at reasonable cost?
Searched HH but didn't seen any threads on this.
Also, if there is any reason why Hercules Blue Block is the wrong type of dope to use for a nipple-to-boiler attachment please advise.
