Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
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.
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."
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.
Most manufacturers of torque wrenches supply them with a plastic storage box to protect them. They also often come with the 1/2 inch to 3/8 inch square drive adapter; some even come with a drive extension.
