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!
