    The BoWrench is the best decking tool I have ever used because its easy to use, and it doesn’t mar joists like other ones. As a contractor that builds a couple of decks a year, this has paid for its self many times over. You can achieve proper gap spacing with out digging through the lumber pile for straight boards(if they exist anymore!). I would highly recommend the BoWrench to any deck builder.

    I bought this tool before doing a very large deck covered with 5/4 Pau Lope. It is a great improvement over the Stanley Board Bender, because it locks in place, reducing our manpower needed. The problem stems from the soft metal that makes up the BoWrench. The pin began to bend after a few days, and the hole the pin went through got larger and larger. We also bought the adapter for double joists. That was a great success, except that the pieces that lock the head in place eventually started to slip. We reversed them and they worked a while more. Then we removed them and filed them down, so they had sharp edges again. Summary: a good tool which, with some modifications at the production level, could make it a life long tool.

    All I can say is how could you build a solid deck out of todays quality lumber without this tool. It actually costs me money to own this tool. Since I retired I’ve been working building decks and I always charge by time and materials. Since owning the BoWrench I have lost money because of how little effort it takes to flex warped lumber into position for screwing down to the joists. I forgot it one day worked 8 hrs. and only got one third of my project completed, remembered it the next day and did the other two thirds in the same amount of time. Never will leave it at home again.
