Oh my! The force in that video is humongous! I would think an adjustable crescent wrench would shatter with all that force applied!

I'm curious why he used the open ended part of the 32mm wrench; wouldn't you have used the box part of the open-end wrench so as to distribute the 3lb hammer forces on the nut?

BTW, in the video, the 'brute' said 32mm is the same as 1 1/4 inches. Doing the math, 32mm is close to 1 1/4 inches (1.26").

When I order the wrench, if I order a 1 1/4 instead, do you think the extra tenth of an inch matters?
