Combination wrenches feature an open jaw wrench on one side and a box wrench on the other. You can use the wrench's open end where you can't fit the box end over the nut or bolt and the box end where there's space to swing the wrench around in a full circle for extra speed. The box end also holds fasteners in place if you need to adjust position or move while you work.
If you work on cars or in machine shops, make sure that you have both standard and metric combination wrenches. The sizes aren't compatible with one another and you end up doing enough work in either set to need both. For confined spaces, ratcheting combination wrenches are ideal. They only apply force in one direction at a time, so you can use them to quickly loosen or tighten a bolt in a car or a densely packed machine. These wrenches have selectable settings so that you can switch from tighten to loosen in under a second.
If you don't already own any combo wrenches, invest in a combination wrench set. These sets feature the most common sizes of wrenches in a single box for value and convenience. While the wrenches in the set are all of a fixed size, combination wrenches can be faster than adjustable wrenches when you work with several bolts of the same size because you don't have to worry about them coming loose and the need to retighten between bolts.
Combination wrenches are useful for virtually any household or professional project. You can work on more areas than with either open jaw or box wrenches alone. Check out our large selection of combination wrenches, and add a set to your tool collection today.
