Socket and Wrench Sets, What’s the Best Buy?

The Best Socket and Wrench Set you’ll ever buy.

I’m back with another fantastic DIY tip for you today.

If you’re anything like me I’ll bet you’ve come across a stripped nut or bolt or even stripped a few your­self. It doesn’t get much more frus­trating than being stopped by a lousy nut or bolt.

Stripped nut

But what’s even worse, you guessed it, banging up your knuckles too. Remember how that felt? Well I sure do.

Injured knuckles

It usually starts when you try to loosen a nut and ended up strip­ping it with a lousy or wrong size wrench. Or by trying to tighten a metric nut with a stan­dard socket (or vise-versa).

Like me, you prob­ably have a bunch of various size sockets and wrenches and a tool box or two to store them, and still never seem to have the right tool for the job.

Your collec­tion may even look some­thing like this.
Old socketsOld wrenches

You’ve prob­ably noticed that there are many different sockets and wrenches sets to choose from; 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, stan­dard, and metric sockets. Open end wrenches, box end wrenches, and ratchet type wrenches. SIx piece sets to 3000+ piece sets, and the list goes on and on.

With so many socket and wrench sets out there, you might ask your­self, “Why so many choices?” The answer is, they sell! Why? Because everyone is looking for the perfect tool set to suit their specific needs.

Believe me, there was a time when I had hundreds of sockets and wrenches, and three tool boxes to store them. Between their cost, the space they took up, the weight to trans­port them, and the time it took to find the right tool… ARGG!! What a hassle.

But I’m happy to say those days are over!

The Best Socket and Wrench Set

The solu­tion is this 62 piece socket and wrench set, by Metrinch. Believe me, this is going to be the last socket and wrench set you’ll prob­ably ever buy. The 62 piece set usually runs about $150, but prices fluctuate.

First off, both the sockets and wrenches grip the flat sides of the nuts instead of the corners, so no more strip­ping nuts!

And since they grip the flat sides of the nuts and bolts, the sockets and wrenches work on damaged nuts, and fit both stan­dard or metric.

Now it only takes one set of tools to do the job!

Check out this Metrinch video to see them in action.

This incred­ible 62-piece socket and wrench set does it all, and comes in it’s own custom case for conve­nient trans­port and storage. And if that not enough they come with a Life­time Inter­na­tional replace­ment warranty.

Once I tried these sockets and wrenches, I sold my three tool boxes of sockets and wrenches, and made enough money to buy a Metrinch set, and pocket a few bucks. Now that’s a deal!
I’ve owned my Metrinch set for about 15 years and they’re still as good as new.

Believe me, you’ll love these tools!

Here’s what you get

  • No slip­ping means better safety and no more banged up knuckles.
  • Fewer tools means less space and a lighter tool box.
  • Less tools makes it a easier to find the tool you need.
  • Save money by not having to buy two sets of tools or pay ER bills.
  • Works on metric, stan­dard and damaged fasteners.
  • Includes a cool little two finger ratchet for those small hard to reach jobs.
  • Metrinch offers different size sets for the home owner to the professional.
  • And if that’s not enough, they have a Life­time Inter­na­tional Replace­ment Warranty.

This is defi­nitely the last combi­na­tion tool set you’ll ever buy, and for the price, you can’t go wrong.

Also, if you’re looking for a great gift for your special DIY’er, this will surely do the trick.

NOTE: Indi­vidual and combi­na­tion sets are avail­able in 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch,  and 1/2 inch drive, as well as impact sets.

I have this same set. I bought it at least 12 years ago. I like the compactness of the set.  I had a ratchet break shortly after buying the set. The "warranty" is ridiculous,  I bought a better ratchet at the store for less than their replacement cost.  Not enough teeth in the ratchet and better designs for switching directions out there. If you lose a piece they cost a lot to replace and you can't just get them at the hardware store.  It's a good tool set as long as you don't have any problems.


Warranty?  Try replacing a socket and see what happens.  You have to pay to ship the old one back, then they charge $10-$15 to send the new one to you.  That's not a warranty.... that's buying a new socket.


I've seen a lot of different routes to take when it comes to using <a href="">drywall in Calgary</a>. There doesn't seem to be a universal answer, but this definitely helps. Thank you!


I bought the hype an purchased a set of these, I'm sceptical though, hope it works out, I really and tired of those stupid cheap wrenches that flex and round out the bolts and nuts on cars...was considering a snap on flank drive wrench set but the metrinch set was cheaper and claimed to work on a wider variety of fasteners. Hope it works out.


I don't doubt that they are great tools, but I have a very hard time believing they could outperform snap-on's tools. When measured with a moh's hardness tester snap-on's alloys blow everything else out of the water...


These wrenches are top quality and have a Lifetime Guarantee. I bought a set when they first came out, I think about 10 years ago. They're still like new. I bought a set for work too. Give em a try, you won't be disappointed.
