Which Kinds of Spanners and Wrenches Should I Buy?
Spanner and wrench sets can be expensive so it's important to get the most for your money. When wondering what kind to purchase, here are some things to consider.
- Ring-and-open wrenches are among the most popular multi-purpose spanners and can be used on everything from bikes to automobiles.
- Socket wrenches act similarly to ring and open wrenches but have rounded fittings which mean that some varieties of nut or bolt may not be able to fit. However, their twisting action makes them easier to operate.
- Some sets come packaged with other tools but others are arranged in small sets of anywhere from 3 to 20 wrenches. If you need wrenches rarely, you may be best off purchasing a set with other tools, or only buying a smaller set.
