  • RIDGAL pipe wrench?

    I bought this 24" wrench from craig's list, and did'nt even notice it said ridgal instead of ridgid until I went to use it. My question is,(at the risk of sounding stupid) is this made by ridgid? It says its made by the ridge tool company so I'm guessing it is. Thanks in advance.

    Perhaps it was marketed to the gals?

        the ridgid usa side looks legit.

        is the other side a ridgid aluminum?

        a good one for the factory guys.

          So maybe they originally came in pink?

            The other side just has the ridgal logo and "heavy duty" in small letters

              It says the Ridge Tool Company, which does look real.

              I would use pink tools You are brilliant! Why didn't someone think of this sooner?

                When my daughters family was building their home Brenda bought all of the girls who helped bags by "GirlGear Industries" which is an outfit which specializes in pink tool bags and work gloves for girls.

                    Here's a thought, perhaps Ridgid called their Aluminum wrenches RidgAL at one time. Now I am going to have to go look at my wrenches.

                      I have no idea how old it is but the teeth look almost new, and there are only a few scuff marks on it from bouncing around in a truck for awhile.
