Over at Amazon, these Irwin metric Quick Adjusting Wrenches are currently being discounted by at least 50%. The product page has also vanished, suggesting that the wrenches are being discontinued and sold to liquidators.
Kobalt’s Multi Drive Wrench, first introduced last winter, is back in stock in high quantities, just in time for Father’s Day.
We’ve got the scoop on a few more of Dewalt’s newly designed hand tools!
Allen’s RightWrench is a compact 8-sized multi-wrench that is handy to have around.
Right now there’s a great deal on this Proto 15-piece combination wrench set over at Amazon.
Here’s our full hands-on review of Kobalt’s new Multi Drive Wrench. Part 1 showed covered “fastener fit“, and this review covers quality and hands-on performance.
Jori from Harry Epstein gave us a heads-up that a new shipment of NOS (new old stock) Bonney tools has just arrived and is being prepared for sale. A small quantity of NOS Channellock tools have arrived as well.
I couldn’t help myself, I purchased a Kobalt Multi Drive Wrench for review (more info about the new tool here). The full hands-on review of the universal wrench is in the works, but I wanted to share these photos about how well (or poorly) the wrench’s sockets fit fasteners.
UPDATE: It has come to light that “Jason” may be a shill for Home Depot, Husky or one of their agents. As such, please DISREGARD this post until our investigation is complete. We currently believe that the review left by “Jason” is FAKE. The other day we introduced (and ragged on) Husky’s new 48-in-1 ratcheting rotary […]
UPDATE: If you’re interesting in purchasing the Lowes Kobalt Multi-Drive Wrench as a holiday gift, you should also check out the innovative new Kobalt Double-Drive Screwdriver! Kobalt’s new Multi-Drive Wrench is another new Dog Bone wrench design that features 8 universal sockets that cover both standard 6pt SAE and metric fasteners, as well as a variety of […]
Dan sent us a heads-up about Husky’s new universal spline ratcheting wrench. I was already heading off to Home Depot that day, so I made a point to check it out. This Husky 48-in-1 “ratcheting rotary socket wrench” is essentially a universal dog bone wrench similar in design to Black & Decker’s new ratcheting ReadyWrench.
Allen’s RightWrench looks about as simple as an all-in-one wrench could be. It features 8 wrench sizes – 2 open ends and 2 half-box ends on each side of the tool. A green “comfort grip” material is wrapped around the center of the wrench. The RightWrench covers 5/16″, 3/8″ 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″, 5/8″, 11/16″ and 3/4″ sized fasteners. All this for $10. […]
Remember that set of Craftsman SAE elbow ratcheting wrenches that we recently reviewed? Well, we’re giving it away! Entering the giveaway is simple – leave a comment at the end of this post telling us what you would use it for. You can be honest or creative – keep it simple, or make it fun!
Black & Decker’s ratcheting ReadyWrench takes their highly successful ReadyWrench dog bone all-in one style wrench to the next level. Like the original, the ratcheting ReadyWrench can also fit 16 fastener sizes in 8 sockets, but appears to be more compact and has a handy (15°?) offset at both ends.
Back in July, we reviewed Craftsman’s new ratcheting elbow wrenches. After a reader commented that a wrench appeared bent in one of the photos, I went ahead and examined each wrench in the set. I then asked around and examined a few more wrenches, and ultimately discovered that there was no glaring issues with the wrenches. […]
A few weeks ago we introduced Channellock’s new 4-in-1 ratcheting wrenches. These wrenches feature four sizes in a single wrench, which each end sharing the ratcheting mechanism. This makes the wrenches light and compact, and we couldn’t wait to put them through some rough and intense testing.
We have been having a bit of discussion lately as to what constitutes a “normal” adjustable wrench. In my mind, a normal wrench may not necessarily be a good one. You know the kind, those 3-for-$15 sets you find at the bargain bin at the local home improvement store during peak winter holiday and Father’s Day […]
Channellock just came out with a new style of ratcheting wrenches. Each wrench features four ratcheting box end sizes, making the tools great for compact and on-the-go tool kits. There are two sets, SAE and metric, and each set includes two wrenches that cover a 8 wrench sizes.
After we posted about Channellock’s Mutli-Fit wrench set and Alex’s heads-up about Craftsman’s Dog Bone wrench set sale, Jeff spotted the Thorsen-branded Dog Bone multi-socket set at Costco. At $15-20 each, Dog Bone wrenches are a tough sell for a number of reasons. But $17 for the set of SAE and metric wrenches? That’s much more tempting. […]
Soon after we posted about Channellock’s Dog Bone style wrenches, I thought back to a few months ago when I spotted Channellock-branded ratcheting wrenches. These wrenches were also found at a discount wholesale club, and although I don’t recall the exact price, it was possibly in the $25-30 range for the 7-piece set.
