No telling what you might find. Sometimes a metric bolt is just enough bigger and the pitch is close enough that someone will just force it in there rather than fix it right. It might go together but stuff like that is just lurking for the unlucky soul who gets to work on it next.
This is one of my favorite tools. It often goes in the tool bag rather than trying to pack a whole set of wrenches.
It's the Stanley 85-610 - 10" MaxGrip® Locking Adjustable Wrench. Smooth jaws and a clamp equals the best adjustable wrench ever made. It will not tear up fasteners like most other adjustable tools.
