Northern Industrial Combination Wrenches - 34-Pc. Set
Great deal but missing a wrench
The only complaint I have about this set is there is no standard length 7/16" or 11mm. Since they are interchangeable I would be happy with either. There is a 7/16" stubby though. Other than that these wrenches are great and are holding up well to everyday professional abuse.

A great set of wrenches!
I have had these wrenches for about a year and a half now and so far I have had zero issues with them. They work well, clean up nicely, and the midget wrenches really saved my butt more than enough times. The case seems a little loose on some sizes but, come on... What are you really buying here? The tools... Or a plastic case? To sum it up: great quality; good variety; great price; ok case... And if the case is that big of an issue then throw a few bungee cords or something around it.

A lot Handier than a pocket on a shirt!
I needed a combination wrench set that could be carried to various job sites, some at considerable elevation, so the risk of dropping a tool and losing it, or causing real damage to something or someone below was a real concern. Even if no damage was done; retreiving the one wrench you really needed after a 700+ foot drop was both time consuming and embarassing. Another thing I wanted to address was the problem of gathering up tools after the work was done, I was never sure I had all my tools when I left the work site. This wrench set caught my attention because the wrenches are firmly held in the carrying case yet at the same time are easy to view. I ordered these from Northern tool and couldn't have been more impressed when they arrived, they were better than I expected. Now I'm confident the wrenches aren't going to fall out of the case and I know at a glance if all the wrenches are in the case when I leave a work site. I haven't lost or dropped a wrench since I started using these. And I haven't had to climb down to retreive a wrench from 700 feet either! I can't say that about the screwdriver I had in my shirt pocket...

Great wrench set for the $$$$$
I purchased this wrench set after a fair amount of research and have found that it is very handy to be able to grab the entire set when I need it. No more trips back and forth to the heavy box which may or may not have the wrench I need in it. Just grab this set and get the job done efficiently and quickly! The quicker and easier it is to find the right tool for the job makes me more productive and cuts down on the procrastination factor. The box holds the wrenches in place and makes it easy to inventory them when the job is done. Now if there was a companion 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 drive combo socket set with extensions and deep set sockets I'd be totally set.

Not all sizes but good set
On my first need of this set I reached to pull out a standard 7/16"...There is not one but there is a Stubby which was not long enough. My second need for this set was a 5/16"Stubby...LOL there is not one but there is a stanard!! Overall a good quality set, but I wished I would have reviewed sizes a little more closely. Overall good set for the money.

Cant get any better for the money. I am an aircraft mechanic for a large corporate flight department and i have to say these wrenches are comparable to some high priced brands like snap on but for a fraction of the price. they work great i use them every day.

Great value for quality wrenches.
I purchased a single 16mm wrench before I purchased this set. I put the 16mm wrench through a torcher test to judge the quality of the set. It passed every test. I put a 16mm hex socket on a 250lb torque wrench locked in a vice, and the wrench maxed out the torque wrench without sliping. At 220lbs the handle started to flex but it did no damage and the chrome held up fine.
I now have a complete set of Northern wrenches. 5.5mm to 25mm and 1/4" to 1-1/4" and I completed the set of stubby wrenches.
They are much better and approx 25% longer then Cman raised pannel wrenches and compare to the professionals.
Overall you get a ton of quality for a low price tag.

Very nice wrenches. I bought them for my truck and for taking 4x4ing. They are as good or better than my Craftsman set and way cheaper. The case is really good also. It could use a cover but holds the wrenches securely.
