Metric wrenches, also known as metric spanners, are tools used to tighten or loosen nuts and bolts with metric measurements. They are designed to fit the corresponding metric fasteners, which are commonly used in many industries and automotive applications around the world.
Metric wrenches come in various sizes, typically measured in millimeters (mm). The most common metric wrench sizes range from around 6 mm to 24 mm, but larger sizes are also available for specialized applications. The wrenches have an open end or a box end, both with a specific size to match the fastener they are intended to work with.
The open-end wrench has U-shaped jaws and is useful for quickly sliding onto a nut or bolt. It provides a good grip on the fastener but may not offer as much leverage as a box-end wrench. The box-end wrench, on the other hand, has a closed loop with six or twelve points (also known as flats) that fit snugly around the fastener. This design allows for a better grip and increased torque, making it easier to tighten or loosen stubborn fasteners.
Metric wrenches are typically made from high-quality steel or alloy, ensuring strength and durability. They may be chrome-plated or coated with another protective material to prevent rust and corrosion. Some metric wrenches also feature a ratcheting mechanism on the box end, allowing for continuous rotation without lifting the wrench off the fastener.
In summary, metric wrenches are essential tools for working with metric fasteners. They come in a range of sizes and designs to accommodate different applications and provide a reliable means of tightening or loosening nuts and bolts in various industries and automotive repairs.
