When tightening a bolt to the proper torque, it is essential that your hand which is pulling the wrench is cantered on the handle of the wrench. Having it too close or far from the socket actually affects the ultimate torque value you are tightening to. Moving your hand closer to the socket reduces the total "foot-pounds" of torque you are applying, while moving it away, closer to the end of the wrench increases the "foot pounds of torque you are applying."
Crescent wrench The most common type of adjustable wrench found in most homes is the crescent wrench or a wrench with an adjustable end. These adjustable wrenches come in various sizes. A majority of homes have the normal 1 1/2" wrench that can be used to repair any type of faucet or pipe in the house. Large or small projects can be completed easily with the help of the crescent wrench. This angled jaw of the crescent wrench lies perpendicular to the handle at almost fifteen degrees. This tool finds a place in homes because of its ease of use. Most homes use this type of wrench to loosen any bolt or nut that may get stuck. Currently this type of adjustable wrench is used for undertaking other repair work also. Nowadays there are lid openers that incorporate the crescent wrench concept to make lid opening very easy. This type of wrench is also used to secure items such as doors when their faucets or handles have broken.
The right mechanics tools make the difference between an easy job and a difficult one. A mechanic or carpenter is defined by their tools and having the highest grade tool set, complete with combination wrenches, prepares you for any job. The complete mechanics tool set includes wrench kits for automotive jobs, bicycle repair and even specialized work involving foreign automobiles and RV repair. Accessories for spanners that you may want to add to your tool set include cases, wrench grips and wrench holders.
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.
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.
