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.

Irwin quick adjusting wrench

Irwin Quick Adjusting Wrenches Review

A Metric Adjustable Wrench? That’s right up there with a muffler bearing removal tool… or so we thought. Like many of the recent Irwin branded tools we have seen, this one definitely delivers. With professional quality, reasonable pricing, and great features, the Irwin Quick Adjusting Wrenches are a great new spin on a classic product!

Black & Decker Automatic Adjustable Wrench

Black & Decker Automatic Adjustable Wrench

For those who have everything there is always the automatic adjustable wrench. This product makes it easy to quickly adjust the jaws without having to remove the wrench from a tight space. Just activate the button and the AA battery-powered wrench will open as wide as 1-1/4 inches to accommodate even some of the largest bolts you’re likely to encounter around the house.

Workforce 74pc Screwdriver and Pliers Set

Workforce 74pc Screwdriver and Pliers Set

Workforce, like Husky, Pegasus and Hampton Bay, is a Home Depot house brand that manufactures everything from shelves to screwdrivers. Their 74 piece screwdriver and pliers set is a good purchase for hobbyists and do-it-yourselfers, but not such a great bargain for the serious tool user as quality tends to suffer over the long haul and with extended or hard use.
