Wrench Set Buying Guide

With so much choice, how can you decide on what the best combination wrench set is? Below are some tips to keep in mind when picking your wrenches.

Storage and Organization

There is no point in investing in 20+ wrenches only for them to become lost or disorganized in clutter. And your garage is a busy place – having things within reach is so important.

With that said, we recommend you first pick a wrench set where each wrench is easily identifiable. This means that there is a branding mark on either side of the wrench telling you it’s size.

Secondly, a bonus for wrench sets is that many include a storage facility. Some of these come in the form of pouches, some in racks. Others might be heavy-duty boxes.

Depending on your needs, you might want to look at a storage option that can be hung on the wall or stored in a drawer, to save floor and workbench space.

Metric, SAE? Or both?

If you’re reading about wrenches, you will spot that a wrench can be either metric or SAE. What’s the difference, and what one do I need?

Metric wrenches use units such as millimeters and centimeters to measure (e.g. 6mm, 2 cm, etc.)

SAE wrenches use units such as fractions and inches (e.g. 1/4”, 2 inches, etc.)

Generally speaking, it all depends on what it is you’re fixing. Metric and SAE systems are not compatible with each other.

Metric fasteners and tools are becoming more and more common than SAE equivalents. If you are unsure, investing in a set that includes both types of wrenches would be ideal.

High-quality materials

The best wrenches are long-lasting, durable, and resistant.

You’ll notice in many of the wrenches we’ve recommended that they offer ‘lifetime guarantees’. That’s how confident manufacturers are of the high-quality of their products.

So what material should you be looking out for in particular?

  1. Vanadium considerably increases of strength and stability of steel. For this reason, always look for wrenches with this ingredient.
  2. Chrome-plating provides corrosion resistances and makes cleaning the wrenches so much easier. A chrome coating also improves the hardiness of your wrenches.

Next, you should think about how the wrenches are designed and what jobs they are best suited for.

For example, slim-designed wrenches are very useful for working in tight, enclosed spaces. Some wrenches provide longer reach than others for extra versatility.

Many of the best wrenches are designed with raised panels along their shaft, which adds leverage and gripping power, while some wrenches may have a thick head instead, which gives additional grip and strength for more exposed fasteners.

Wrenches can either be the superhero or supervillain of a DIY project.

When they work well, they help repair, fix, and strengthen your projects. But using the wrong one can lead to a lot of frustration and destruction.

Whether it’s metric or SAE, We’re confident you’ll find the best wrench set from our recommendations. Each one will make your project easier, quicker, and more manageable.

The best wrenches are also indestructible. The investments you make now will last with you for years to come. And with a host of wrench organizers included, your garage or workbench will be the cleanest it’s ever been!
