An amazing number of solutions to a single problem :-)  Your Crescent Wrench 
is the one that I have - a slightly smaller and lighter version of David's.  
None of the other pictures look like the other one he uses. Imagine a single 
piece of iron, like a flattened umbrella handle.  Underneath the curve is 
serrated to be one half of the jaw, and down the straight are a number of 
holes.  A second, entirely separate piece of iron fits around the handle, with 
the curved upper surface being serrated.  There is a single hole, where a pin 
locates it into the adjustable part.  It's a very primitive tool, to my eye.  
Maybe I can get a photo of it.
