This wrench was just laying on a workshop floor amid grime, wires, bits of cardboard and even a couple of leaves.

Just needs a drop of oil from the look of it. Did you take it home? Nice treatment

I find it surprising the wrench was left. It looks like it could still be used.
A fne shot of it and the surrounding debris.

Great shot. Funny haw the names for tools change from country to country. We would call that a Pipe Wrench

@Philnz: yes, pipe wrench is a more correct name. As several commentors have mentioned, "monkey wrench" is a pretty old-fashioned name for it/
