Adjustable Wrench in SolidWorks

Wrench 2

I used simple boss extrudes, cut extrudes, and a sweep feature to create this adjustable wrench.  The knurl slides the jaw back and forth using a rack and pinion mate, and a limit distance mate keeps the jaw from sliding unrealistiically with respect to the handle. This wrench was a fun project for me, and I hope you enjoy it as well. Thanks for viewing!

    Nice work you did on the adjustable wrench. I like to see tools modeled in SolidWorks. Perhaps it is because I used these tools everyday in my working career as a construction electrician. Great work.
