    Made some out of sheet metal. We'll see.

    I think they may be too slippery.

    Make your pipe wrench jaw slip over pieces out of aluminum, which is pretty sticky as compared to steel, I have used aluminum pieces on my pipe wrench jaws for several years.

    after a 20 year hiatus, i'm looking for a project boat to keep me off the streets!
    do they fit a little tight so you aren't doing the ole 3 handed hold?
