    Default What Conventional Wrenches Do You Use?



    Snap On:
    Set, Wrench, Metric, Combination, Long, 12-Point (10 pcs.) (10-19 mm)
    Stock #: OEXLM710B

    Like I said, good tools make a big difference. But honestly you can get the flank drive style wrenches from most tool manufacturers. What makes them better is instead of using the edges of the nut/bolt to grab it uses the shoulders. No more rounded off edges. In fact I use these to take off a lot of bolts that others have rounded off.

    Pretty sure you can find the same sort of wrench from Sears for less though.

    Just, the truck holds a credit for me.

    I use a set of Metrinch, for both my sockets and combination hand wrenches. Same idea that it grabs the flats rather than the points of the bolt head, though it still is possible to round a head. Only managed it the one time, fittings on a brake line.

    They don't offer the set I have anymore, as mine doesn't include screwdriver bits.

    Well if you don't get it all the way on the nut it'll still strip... line wrenches are the way to go for brake lines NE ways.

    My normal wrenches are combination of snapons, craftsman, and some others. The wrenches that are the best in my toolbox though are my Husky racheting endwrenches. They have a swivel top and theyre straight so they dont have the tapered angle, which makes them easy to get into a lot of places a normal wrench wont go.

    I got em from home depot and they wre like 65 dollars or something for the whole set starting at 10mm going up to 19 in increments. 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19 I think.

    Best tools ive bought for overall use. Those things get used ALOT.

    Right now the only wrenches in my tool boxes are just some cheap sears combo ones. Alot of them are too short to really do any good, but the one I use most would be a 13mm/15mm box end wrench. 11" long and I find it works great for removing any GM oil pan bolt.

    I really wanna get into a set of MAC knuckle savers or similar ones from Snap-on or Matco but i dont have the money for those yet.

    Majority are Snap ons. Some Craftsman and a set of Metrinch. 12pt and 6 pts.

    Delicate wrenching/ fastener work is for Snap on and when its tight space I'll grab for the 12 point. Once I get out in the open I'll use the 6 point closed end side as much as possible.

    I've broken a number of the gear wrenches... guess they don't like getting reefed on too hard.

    What grade gear wrenches were they? I guess they have a few different ones out. I know the ones carried by the tool trucks don't seem to be the same as the ones bought from sears. I'm getting a set of gear wrenches tomorrow and im excited to try them out. They warranty em so if it breaks it breaks.

    Been wrenching professionally for 12 years..... NOTHING compares to Snap-on wrenches. Yes I have Snap-on tools...and alot of them. But I choose tools for what they are capable of not the name. A set of flank drive wrenches bt Snap-on is the best period. Why because if you use a wrench for more than just a box end......as in you need the open end too. That is where these shine. They are made of the best steel possible for the application and do do "spread" which results in rounding off. And because of the quality steel they are the slimest wrenches on the market which means you can do more with them.

    Ratheting box ends wrenches...... I've always had Gearwrench.... good wrench.
    Just bought the double box end zero offset wrenches. Solid box end on one side and the same size but ratheting on the other. They are owsome for doing stuff like drive belts.

    But my most recent addition that amounts to probibly the coolest flex head ratheting box end ever is from Matco. They do everything. 12pt, 6pt, torx, square drive, almost rounded off.......... I love them. Check them out.
