You don’t need to be a professional mechanic to appreciate quality tools; at least that’s how I was able to justify investing in the latest from GEARWRENCH. It’s a name I trust when working on my own truck and with large hands like mine I’ll take any advantage I can get when trying to squeeze into those hard-to-reach places.

The 90-tooth platform with 66 new ratcheting wrenches are available in the two most popular styles – combination and flex-head combination – but for the record it’s not just about the number of teeth. The new GEARWRENCH ratcheting wrenches create a 4-degree swing arc to work in tighter spaces and the longer and thicker beams improve leverage and increase your comfort.

There are 36 open-stock combination ratcheting wrenches available in both metric and SAE sizes and I ended up going with the 10-piece Flex Head Ratcheting combo SAE set ($129) as well as the 10-piece Combination Ratcheting SAE Set ($89). Both range from 1/4-inch to 3/4-inch and come with a wrench rack to stay organized.

I like the heavy-duty feel of each wrench in my hand as well as the reach they provide and for the price they’re hard tobeat.

July 2021

It’s safe to say it’s almost impossible—if not completely impossible—for someone to live in the United States and not know someone personally who is serving, or has served, in one of the branches of our Armed Forces. Now this doesn’t have to be an immediate family member, but in a lot of cases it is. It could easily be your uncle, a cousin or even your niece or nephew that is serving today...
