Members of the military Explosive Ordinance Disposal teams wanted a small, light, non-magnetic wrench for working on magnetically sensitive devices, and this is what we provide them.
This is a project we have been working on for two years. Most wrenches are forged from tool steel, but It was determined that this wrench must be Titanium. Why Titanium? Itís extremely corrosion resistant. Featuring No/Low magnetic signature. Extraordinarily strong, titanium possesses a greater strength-to-weight ratio than stainless, steel or aluminum. Titanium weighs about 60% less than steel in density, producing tools at nearly half the weight of steel.
This means that the wrench needed to be machined out of a solid billet of Titanium. Making a adjustable wrench in the machine shop is a lot more complicated than it sounds.
