Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Wrenches, Drivers, Pliers & Socket Reviews

In this section we provide reviews of screwdrivers, pliers, drivers and wrenches. We’ve also reviewed larger systems like the Sonic Tools S10 toolbox and the new GearWrench air impact wrenches. Our reviews also include specialty tools like the Ridgid telescoping basin wrench and the Milwaukee Cheater pipe wrench. Of course, socket sets make up part of the mix as well. Drivers and Wrenches on the Jobsite While at first you won’t think about sockets on a construction jobsite, the truth is there’s a lot of crossover. From driving lag bolts to performing maintenance on OPE equipment, sockets and wrenches play an important role. Drivers and wrenches take on a particularly important role when you factor in the needs of electricians. We try, whenever possible to draw distinctions between commonly-popular features and those particularly relevant to electricians. Case in point: the use of insulated screwdrivers for high voltage or similar applications.
