This monkey wrench is awesome. I think I'm going to have to hunt one down. I love old tools. I've got an antique wood handle hand crank drill; which still works.

Some sort of gauge?

It's in our sheet metal fab room. I wouldn't be surprised if you lay that across the end of a piece of round pipe, and it gives you the circumference to cut insulation to size to wrap around it.

Or for anything circular for that matter. But it's easy enough to do the math when you use a regular measure tape...

The right side is gives pi*inches so you can put that across the end of a pipe and the measurement it gives in the circumference instead of the diameter.  Saves a lot of guesstiplying by 3ish if you need to cut insulation or anything to wrap pipes.  Now that I know it exists there are times I wish I'd had one.
