Each Parmelee Pipe Wrench is engineered based on the specific girth (or girth with liner) requirements needed for the outside diameter of the pipe or rod being worked on in order to ensure a tight 360° grip. A separate girth is necessary for each diameter of pipe, tubing, or rod and cannot be used on diameters other than that for which it was made. Please specify the Outside Diameter of the pipe, tubing, or rod when ordering your Parmelee wrench.
Girths and handles are sold separately. Please see our complete list of standard sizes for each girth and accompanying handle. All wrenches come with a lock bolt, adjusting nuts, and slip pin and replacement parts are available. The handles are available in 4 general categories: the #H1 Light Gauge, #H2 Medium Gauge; #H3 Heavy Gauge and #4 Extra Heavy Gauge, and each handle can be fitted with well over 20+ standard sized girths and custom sizes are also available upon request. Custom sizes includes metric measurements. In addition, custom liners can be welded to the inside of some girths in order to give the wrench a more highly engineered, machined gripping capability compared to the standard polished finish that is found on our stock girths.
Parmelee Wrench will also assemble the handles and girths (upon request) before shipping for a fee of $10.00 per wrench.
