I was wondering what type of 1/4x5/16 wrench you guys have. I have the laminated type but I have seen on other repair videos a much nicer one.It is made like a box end gear wrench. I have looked on the gear wrench site and I don't see anything.The little set that I bought at Lowe's has one similar but is not as heavy duty as the one I am talking about.Just like appliances I see a lot of 1/4 &5/16 screws and I would like to find one of these wrenches.

I have a husky that works great in tight spaces. Matco has some great stuff but you don't kick yourself as much if you loose the husky one.

I did find that one the other day and its just like the KOBALT set at Lowes. If you ever watch Appliance Videos .com their techs all seem to have this wrench.I sent them an email and they said Craftsman but I have not been able to find it.The one they have is a 6 point and is longer.Do you have the Gearwrench set?

I have the Gear Wrench set that Brother beamed linked to and it's saved my bacon more more than once, paying for itself several times over.

Glad to hear it!I figured a Gearwrench set would be a great investment. The price isn't bad either. The Kobalt set is $14.95.I bet the Gearwrench ratchet is probably better

I have the Kobalt set,  work OK for me the times I have had to use it.  I purchased it on sale from Lowes for $9.99.  It was there larger set originally over $24

Woohoo! I just got this set from my bro in law and sister. Thanks to your guys suggestion. Not sure I'll get much use if I get this armed security job, but once I get enough money I'm considering starting my own business.

I also have this set which I think I may like a little better.  Still field testing both of them in various scenarios:  https://www.amazon.c...KPSS9HZV6YAPZ0

 

Both the Bostich and the Gear Wrench set are well made, quality tools.  I like the smaller size and lighter weight of the Bostich set.  Tough call, tough call.

Cool. I guess the main reason I wanted the gearwrench was for the sockets. I used to keep a 1/4 rachet set in my bag, but this seems a lot better :)

I have the gearwrench micro set as well. I have been impressed with gearwrench stuff lately. I have a set of SAE and a set of metric flex head ratcheting X-beam wrenches. Best wrenches I have ever owned. The X-beam feature is amazing. Couple that with a flexible ratcheting box wrench, you can easily remove those difficult-to-get-to bolts. But alas, no 1/4 inch in the set.
