As everyone who has been through an apprentice program knows, bolts are used in construction, manufacturing, and assembly of almost everything. By having a combination wrench set at the ready, you can show that you have the ability to place or remove a bolt easily and efficiently.
An automotive tool set should contain a variety of common wrench sizes to handle automotive repairs while on the road. By having a wrench set in your vehicle you are prepared for any emergency car repairs that may be needed.
Combination wrenches are available in a wide variety of sizes for both standard and metric nut and bolt combinations. This simple hand tool does not require electricity, is designed specifically for the job that it is made to do and is highly resistant to breakage.
A combination wrench set is useful for the aspiring motor mechanic as well as industrial mechanics, carpentry jobs, household repairs, automotive repairs and for common tasks such as furniture assembly.
Torque wrenches are precision tools and should be treated as such. Although most micrometer wrenches have a reversible ratchet head, they really should not be used as a ratchet, and especially not as a breaker bar. Most people who break their torque wrenches do so by trying to loosen an overly tight bolt with it. This overly stresses the internal mechanism, causing it to break, especially if the micrometer isn't set to a higher torque value than the pressure that is being applied.
