There are two basic types of torque wrenches on the market, what are called "beam" wrenches and "micrometer" wrenches. Beam wrenches count on the built-in flexibility of any material. As torque is applied, the wrench flexes, while another rod, with a pointer at the end, indicates torque being applied on a scale.
Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
Torque wrenches are precision tools and should be treated as such. Although most micrometer wrenches have a reversible ratchet head, they really should not be used as a ratchet, and especially not as a breaker bar. Most people who break their torque wrenches do so by trying to loosen an overly tight bolt with it. This overly stresses the internal mechanism, causing it to break, especially if the micrometer isn't set to a higher torque value than the pressure that is being applied.
Combination wrenches are available in a wide variety of sizes for both standard and metric nut and bolt combinations. This simple hand tool does not require electricity, is designed specifically for the job that it is made to do and is highly resistant to breakage.
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.
