SAE and Metric Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set
Mac Tools offers the Mac Edge seven-piece SAE (SRWFQ67K) and seven-piece metric (SRWMFQ67K) FLEX2 combination ratcheting wrench set. This product marries the Mac Edge nonslip grip technology, that can remove fastener heads up to 70 percent rounded, with the double joint flexible box end design, allowing these wrenches to be used at multiple offset angles. The double flex joint provides two times more access to hard-to-reach fasteners — 180-degree x 2 range of motion. A meatier shank with a full polish nickel chrome surface enables the wrenches to perform under high torque applications while maintaining a comfortable grip. Mac Tools’ open-end ratcheting wrenches also have a unique “knuckle-saver” open-end nonslip design, preventing damage to both the bolt and your hands.
