Greetings all, My wrench (pictured:IMG_4595.jpg) is just short of being able to grip this 1.5in. nut (pictured:IMG_0317.jpg). Should I get this 1.5in. crowfoot wrench (pictured:IMG_4596.jpg), or does the forum have any other suggestions?

That crowfoot look like it should work.

Be careful when turning it, don’t let the wrench bang into any part of the china and crack it.

You will have to remove it from the nut after every little bit of turn, and place it back onto a new surface of the nut.

If you get lazy and make too big of a turn, part of the wrench can impact the china and might crack it.

Also, that faucet was probably installed before the sink was installed, so the installer had easy access.
So it might be really tight, they often don’t think about the next guy who has to take it off someday.
