How To Use A Mole Wrench
Mole Wrench How and why? A Useful DIY Tool. A Mole wrench is a useful tool it has a powerful grip and is able to be latch-on to objects holding and gripping them hands free. This is a good tool for diy, do it yourself. http://www.acomputerportal.com/index.html
Step 1: Mole Wrench- how and why?
Good day. Today I'm going to show you how and why we may wish to use a mole wrench. Here's a couple of mole wrenches. As you can see, they come in different sizes. Some too have special fittings for welding and such like. And there are different makes apart from mole that do basically the same sort of job.

Step 2: A Useful DIY Tool.
Now there are two main advantages of using a mole wrench. One is quite a powerful grip. Quite a powerful tool. Quite strong these are as well. Rugged. Last a long time if reasonably well looked after, at least quite a number of years. Haven't really ever let me down.
Step 3: Another advantage:
The other advantage is that you can lock them on to an item that you wish to grip and it'll stay there and hold there leaving your hands free. To demonstrate this, I'm just going to grip this nut and bolt I have here.
Step 4: Adjusting the mole wrench:
Generally speaking, I would normally start adjusting this mole wrench. The way to do that is to turn this thread here that is on the mole wrench. And as we turn it one way it gradually closes the jaws, and if we turn it the other way, it will gradually open the jaws here. Generally speaking, I adjust the jaws so that they are just a bit smaller than the actual item we want it to grip. You may wish to open these. They're quite springy, a bit of a nuisance, that. But you can open them, hold them in your hand, at your pace, so that we can grip the item that we're wishing to grip. And then, pull it, not squeezing it too tight at this time, gradually tighten it up more, and as we do so, we can see that this widens here.
Step 5: Now squeeze:
Once I'm about this distance apart, say about fifty millimeters, maybe thirty millimeters or so, you get the hang of that. Once it's in that position, we're going to tighten this a little bit more--sometimes we don't need a lot of tightening--and squeeze. I need to slacken it off a little bit, actually, because it's a bit too tight for me. Squeeze. Sometimes you might need two hands. And hopefully you heard that sort of click there. That is basically locked on that nut and bolt now, as you can see. We could put this into a vice, wind up the vice, and then we could work on this nut and bolt, whatever we wished to do.
Step 6: Undoing a mole wrench:
When it comes to undoing a mole wrench, there's a lever here and generally you hold the mole wrench lightly, squeeze this lever--I generally put my thumb against the thread--push against the lever, gripping the mole wrench so that it doesn't spring too far apart, and that unlocks and unlatches it.
Step 7: Thanks for watching:
Basically, that's a mole wrench. It can be used for say gripping two pieces of metal together if we're drilling. It can be used for gripping round things as well. Hopefully, you'll find that a very useful tool and I would recommend that you have one or two in your toolbox like I do. Great tool. Very useful. And that's basically how and why we may wish to use a mole wrench. Good luck with any do-it-yourself work that you've got to do. Thanks, and bye for now.
