Introduction: Adjustable Blacksmith Twist Wrench

I recently spent too much time making a pretty poor twist wrench that only fit 2 sizes of stock. So I decided to make an adjustable twist wrench. It works a treat.

Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Tools and Materials

Tools:

Welder

Angle grinder or hacksaw

Materials:

Adjustable wrench

Iron bar. The size isn't too important, just so long as it looks and feels more or less right. I went for 10mm.

Step 2: Cut!

Figure out where you want your bar to join your wrench. Remember the aim is to have a reasonably straight line so that you get an equal twist.

Mark the wrench with a sharpie.

Cut a section out of the wrench and test that your bar fits.

Step 3: Weld!

Securely clamp your pieces.

Weld!

Step 4: Twist!

    It is a vintage monkey Wrench used to twist two pieces of steel together to forge weld demascus or to twist square stalk to make it look fancy like the twisted bars in a wrought iron railing.
