Hi, name's Jon.

I'm not really into tractors but I thought some of you guys could help me out with this. I have a 24 inch Diamalloy adjustable crescent wrench, it has a little surface rust and signs of use but it still works just fine. So I was wondering what it might be worth seeing as I won't be needing it.

Thank you.

I work on heavy equipment so I use alot of the big tools on a routine basis. Most of my larger stuff I buy in the area pawn shops because I like the older tools and because the prices are alot cheaper than new. That said, for a old 24 inch adjustable, in the condition you are describing, I'd have no problem paying around $50 for it, sight unseen, and I might even go as high as $75 but I'd have to see it first. Even then I'd probably try to talk you down to $60...LOL....That's why I love pawn shops, never pay full asking price...

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Sad part of that is you're paying $100 for the exact same Chinese wrench you can get at Harbor Freight for $23.99 with a 20% off coupon.

Neither is the quality of an old name-brand Crescent, but they aren't bad.

I'm up in Ely, MN. I was going to try asking around $40 for it locally but there's probably not much of a market for it here. I think it's chrome played and it does have some chew marks. I've seen some of the Diamalloy sold as "collectibles" but due to the slight surface rust as I mentioned this would just be for regular use. I still might try eBay but like you said, the shipping would probably scare most away.

Is it chrome plated ? Are there chew marks on the jaws? Hammer strike marks? . If I was putting it in a consignment shop I would place a 100 dollar price tag on it. The shop would take forty and I would get 60. It may sit awhile until the right buyer comes along but it is a painless process.If it was on eBay the high price of shipping would scare off alot of potential buyers but you would make about 87 bucks on a 100 dollar sale by the time eBay and paypal got done . If it was in a garage sale you might get 30 bucks for it. It was expensive when it was new.

You must not have sold anything recently as it is a lot higher than that to sell since they raised their rates and you have to pay selling fees on shipping. My last items have averaged 21 to 24 percent total.

I have a 24" from NAPA, at least 25 years old. Paid almost $ 150.00 back then. I looked long and hard at that wrench before I bought it but in the long run, it has come in very handy several times

In 1962 a friend of mine found a 24" Diamalloy
Cresent wrench and asked me if I wanted it. Told
him I would buy him a case of beer(24 Can.)
He brought it over,we drank the beer and I still have the wrench. Very handy when you need it.
Glad I don't drink like that anymore.

Could be worth as much as $20 to the right buyer...
