A wrench is an invaluable tool for general repair and maintenance. The grip and mechanical advantage it provides enables the user to apply torque to turn nuts and bolts.
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.
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.
When storing your wrenches, a tool storage chest, wrench holder or a standard tool box can be useful. Tool boxes and cases for wrenches, include soft cases in rollout and box style, as well as heavy plastic cases or even heavy duty steel, titanium and aluminum toolboxes for the serious mechanic. Wrenches can be stored in tool chests, roll up cases, and will help you find the exact tool you need for getting extra leverage on a stubborn bolt.
Typically, a pipe wrench is composed of an upper hook jaw and a lower heel jaw, both connected to a flat handle. The lower jaw is adjustable to the size of the metal object. Forward pressure on the handle pulls the jaws closer for ease of gripping and turning. Usually made of aluminum or steel, pipe wrenches are available in various sizes measured by the length of the handle.
