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.
If you are buying a torque wrench for your car, you should buy a 1/2 inch square drive tool, as 3/8 in drive tools only work on lower torque settings (typically below manufacturer's specifications). Adapters are available to reduce the 1/2 inch square drive to 3/8 inch square to fit the more common socket size that most people have.
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.
Micrometer wrenches are pre-set to the required torque on a vernier scale. An internal spring loaded mechanism measures the torque. When the bolt is tightened to the desired torque it "clicks."
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.
