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.
Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
If you are buying a torque wrench for your car, you should buy a 1/2 inch square drive tool, as 3/8 in drive tools only work on lower torque settings (typically below manufacturer's specifications). Adapters are available to reduce the 1/2 inch square drive to 3/8 inch square to fit the more common socket size that most people have.
You will not find an auto repair shop, an automotive training course or even an auto mechanic school that is not well stocked with a wide variety of combination wrenches. When it comes time to do car repairs or other basic mechanical jobs, the first tool in your kit should be the combination wrench. Solid, basic, sturdy and dependable the combination wrench doesn't have moving parts and is designed to withstand impacts on even the most demanding jobs.
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.
