Hi bradyx10

Do a search on e-bay for self adjusting spanners, and check out these 'Power Grip Self Adjustable 2 Piece Pipe Wrench Set Plumber Spanner'. I know they are listed as plumbers tools, but I keep this type in my toolbox, and they are great for rounded off nuts. The harder you pull them, the tighter they get.
