Micrometer wrenches are pre-set to the required torque on a vernier scale. An internal spring loaded mechanism measures the torque. When the bolt is tightened to the desired torque it "clicks."
You can think about the purpose of the tool before deciding on the kind of wrench to meet your requirements. Adjustable wrenches are handy tools in a home and you can invest in each of these varieties to undertake all types of repairs in your home quickly and easily.
Of the two types of torque wrenches, the micrometer wrench is definitely the more accurate. Typically, they are rated as being accurate to four percent of torque set. However, this accuracy can easily be lost if the wrench is not reset to zero before storage. Beam wrenches don't have this possibility of losing their accuracy, but are less accurate right out of the box. The accuracy of these beam wrenches is typically 12 percent, but can be less on higher torque settings, especially if the operator's hand is shaking from the pressure they are applying.
The Monkey wrench Otherwise known as gas grips, this is a traditional type that comes with a straight and long handle. The tool's forged metal makes it highly durable. This type wrench is mostly used on projects of large scale. In this type of wrench, the handle is extremely smooth and the size of the jaw can vary. Some of these tools are so large that they can even grip a large pipe of say, 3 inches.
Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
