Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
Toolkits come with a variety of selections from a basic 8 piece wrench set, on up to 16, 32, 64 or even 256 piece or more sets. While a few common wrenches will cover most tasks, having a large toolkit with a full selection of wrenches insures that you are ready for any job that comes your way.
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.
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.
The Pipe wrench Otherwise called the Stillson wrench, this wrench mostly finds use among plumbers. This tool can be very convenient to use when working in a tight spot where the need for gripping power of an adjustable wrench is most needed. The tool has rough jaws with which it can securely hold the pipe. The pipes can be fitted easily using this wrench as the jaws will help the pipe to stay in place firmly.
