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.
Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
You will not find an auto repair shop, an automotive training course or even an auto mechanic school that is not well stocked with a wide variety of combination wrenches. When it comes time to do car repairs or other basic mechanical jobs, the first tool in your kit should be the combination wrench. Solid, basic, sturdy and dependable the combination wrench doesn't have moving parts and is designed to withstand impacts on even the most demanding jobs.
An automotive tool set should contain a variety of common wrench sizes to handle automotive repairs while on the road. By having a wrench set in your vehicle you are prepared for any emergency car repairs that may be needed.
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.
