Product Features:
  • The Patented Driveworks ratcheting box end needs as little as 5 Degrees of sweep to move a fastener; a standard 12-point box end wrench needs 30 Degrees , or 6x as much room; box end is 15& Degrees offset for knuckle clearance
  • Long bolts and threaded rods are not a problem for the Driveworks; the ratcheting head allows the wrench to travel the length of the threads without removing the box end from the fastener
  • The thin head and shank allow the Driveworks into the tightest areas
  • The Surface Drive® box end configuration virtually eliminates the rounding of fasteners; by moving the contact points of the wrench back from the edge of the fastener, the area of flat contact is expanded, distributing the load over a wider area
  • Extremely strong, Driveworks ratcheting combination wrench meets or exceeds ANSI, DIN and federal torque specifications for standard professional combination wrenches
  • The Driveworks ratcheting combination wrench is a precision tool and is not intended to free frozen fasteners

An 18mm wrench would have been better than a 19mm wrench. A 19mm and 3/4" wrench are only .002" different in size meaning that if you already have the SAE set of these wrenches you could have used your 3/4" wrench for all of your 19mm needs. [...] sells the capstop version of these that has the 18mm wrench instead of the 19mm, but sometimes the capstop can be a hinderance so I bought these too. Anyway, I've got four sets of these wrenches. Two sets with the capstops from [...] and two sets without from Advance Auto. I probably won't ever buy the 18mm wrench other than the 18mm capstop version and a regular 18mm combination wrench both of which I've already got. Sorry Danaher, your clever packaging won't get me to spend anymore on these things unless absolutely necessary. :-)

Worked fine for a year. Then recently the 17mm broke and fell apart. Thinking it was a fluke, I bought a replacement wrench. A week later the 12mm broke the same way. I dont use these that often. Just a guy repairing a fleet of 4 cars. Going to buy a different manufacturer's model. Great concept, poor execution.

    Comments about Gear Wrench 8-Piece Reversible Ratcheting Combination Wrench Set - Metric:

    Great for tight spaces. These ratcheting wrenches saved me at least 40 annoying minutes on my last automotive repair. I've got straight and flex head ratcheting wrenches, but these are the most handy and versatile. Just don't use these for heavy loosening or tightening---use a regular box end wrench for that tough start or finish turn.

    I'd make sure I buy these when they are on sale since they do go on sale fairly often.

      The reversible feature makes it much easier to use in tight areas, especially when you run off a not or bolt and the wrench gets wedged.

      Could be a little thinner for better access tight space but thinner also comprises strength and cost. For the price, you can't complained about it.

          Food processing maintenance mechanic. These wrenches out perform craftsman anyday. 75% Of the mechanics carry gearwrench, all repeat customers. I have several back up sets bc of the reliability. Other big name wrenches will permit water into the the seal of the racheting end. Never had a problem with these rusting out and slipping. Two thumbs up

            These sets go on sale for $30 on a regular basis. For $30 these things cant be beat. Im a big fan of Gearwrench and most of my tool box consists of Gearwrench stuff. However, understand that these wrenchs are only to be used for their ratcheting sides. The open end is a massive lobster claw and if you use it to try to loosen a fastener, you are asking for a rounded bolt.

            Only con to this set of wrenches is it doesn't come with a 16 & 18mm wrench. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 star rating was due to the missing 16 & 18mm wrenches.

              Comments about Gear Wrench 8-Piece Reversible Ratcheting Combination Wrench Set - Metric:

              I purchased this type of ratcheting wrench because of the offset angle like a normal combination wrench, I hate the flat ones because in order to grip the wrench you increase the possibility of the wrench slipping off and busting your knuckles. Gear Wrench is comparable to the quality and price of Craftsman. These are a win win!!!

                    A:

                    Hi Mel, that's a really good question! SAE stands for Society of Automotive Engineers. Because of this, SAE socket wrenches conform to American measurements, inches. Metric socket wrenches are used throughout the rest of the world, and are in millimeters.
