Spanners & ratchet wrenches
Even a person who is far from car repairs and assembly tools in general, at least once in his life held a wrench in his hands. Its construction is extremely simple and, despite its versatility, it may not be used in all cases. That is why there are a huge number of keys that can help out in any situation.
The simplest and most common is the open-end wrench. Its head is U-shaped. It embraces fasteners from three sides, which leads to a high load on some faces. As a result, the edges may “wear out” and then further work with the connection will become somewhat more complicated. The key of the cap type works more accurately. It evenly distributes the load on all faces of the bolt or nut. A significant disadvantage of this tool is that it can be used only in cases where there is access to the end of the fastener.
The most versatile is an adjustable wrench. Its design allows in a few seconds to change the size of the pharynx, adjusting it under a certain fastener. In everyday life, such a key will be very useful, because it alone can replace a dozen open-end keys of different sizes.
SEARCH FOR A RELIABLE TOOL
Save in the choice of tools can not be. How to choose a truly reliable tool and not overpay for it? The first thing you need to pay attention to is the material from which the key is made. The basis of quality tools, as a rule, contains steel with the addition of chromium, vanadium and molybdenum. Of course, you cannot appreciate it with the naked eye. That is why it is necessary to read the technical documentation provided by the manufacturer.
Wrenches that you can buy in most hardware stores often attract attention with its shiny surface. Undoubtedly, instruments coated with chrome or nickel have a very attractive appearance. However, when buying it is better to choose a key with good grinding. Additional coverage is often done poorly and over time is erased, which leads to a violation of the size of the key.
