I have 1- 48" Rigid Pipe wrench and 1- 36" Rigid Pipe wrench for sale both are steel ( or ductile iron?) and definitely used but still very useable. In addition I have a Rigid four wheel cutter for 21/2"-4" pipe,(#44-S). and I have a Rigid tube cutter for up to 3" copper both like new. I also have a McDonnell Miller # 67 LWCO, new in the box as well as gas control valves (24 volt, maybe one MV) and misc. steam and hot water heat parts. I am in S.E. Michigan , north of Detroit.

    You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.

    New to this forum. Did they actually have 5, 6, 7, 8 foot pipe wrenches? I have a big old mansion house with a steam tunnel and BIG pipe screwed together. I always marveled at it.What manner of men and wrenches screwed it tight? But I think it needs to go away now. Not used in 40 years. I fear 100 year old trapezes when I get under them.

    The old pipefitters I've run in to, they just kind of glared at the pipes until they tightened themselves up.

    4' is the largest I have seen except for the chain wrenches which have more capacity and are lighter

    If you want to sell something, especially used, it helps to post price, shipping cost, preferably some pictures.

    I used ridgid 60" and 72" pipe wrenches in my younger days and as far as a 96" (8 foot) I only saw one in a piping supply house in Pittsburgh, Pa. Now that was a big pipe wrench. That wrench was slated to be picked up by one of the railroad companies for use in their repair shop.

    Many years ago, I was in a high school in Erie, Pa. and a lot of the boiler room steam lines were 12" screwed pipe and valves. It was a sight to behold. I should have taken some photos.
