Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Makes for much speedier wrench work
We got this metric set as we have found ourselves assembling an increasing amount of products that are made in China where metric fasteners are more widely used. Ratcheting wrenches are also one tool that I hadn't yet added to my tool collection.
I found it very easy to locate the ratchet head on the bolt or nut thanks to the slightly chamfered fitting and its one quick click of the small lever on the wrench head to switch between tighten and loosen directions. There were some places where I didn't have the clearance to fit the ratcheting head around the bolt head so its back to the old school wrench head at the other end in these instances. The first project was assembling a sawhorse with some poorly written assembly instructions and there were a couple of instances where I had to dis-assemble and re-do and I found the ratchet lever very convenient when I had to switch from tighten to loosen while simply leaving the wrench on the bolt or nut.
The wrenches come in a handy plastic tray which makes it easy to keep them in one place as they gently clip into their plastic holders in size order. I keep them in the tool chest in this plastic tray which means that when I'm working on a project, I can just grab the tray from the drawer and all the wrenches are available.
The important sizes of 10mm, 12mm and 13mm are included so they're likely to be able to handle most fasteners you'll find on a typical Asian or European built product.
The chrome finish feels and look substantial and the tools are guaranteed for life by Husky.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DEstefan Good for tight areas
I use this ratchet wrench set mainly for maintenance on my European motorcycle, that's why I chose the metric version.
The fine ratcheting mechanism allows you to work on bolts in tight spaces too where you might only have 1/2" to move the wrench forth and back. This is the major advantage over other brands.
The chrome plating looks nice and prevents the tool from rusting.

These wrenches are great, They combine the functionality of a standard box wrench and a rachet. A must have for dirt bike riders. I can pretty much remove 90% of the bolts on my Motorcycle with these wrenches, plus they don't take up much room in my tool bag. They have a little leaver for switching the direction of the rachetting motion. They seem well made and I highly doubt I'll ever have to replace them. It comes with a 10,12,13,14, and 15 mm wrench. I only wish that it also came with an 8mm

The wrenches appeared to be made well. I use to buy only Craftsman tools but have not impressed with them lately plus with my the Sears and Kmart stores closing, even if they have a life time warranty but you can't take them back anywhere what does the warranty matter. I also bought the Husky wrenches because of the life time warranty.

Great value and quality for the price. I took a point off because the chrome finish is not very durable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spanner87 Extremely cheap
Upon first use, the ratchet began to slip upon tightening of a nut. I assumed that it was isolated to just that wrench, but when I used the others, I was gifted with the same result. Very disappointed!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DavidR Great wrench set!
I've used these mostly for automotive jobs and I love them!!! The ease of use is 2nd to none, and they were surprisingly durable when working on the car where a higher level of torque is required at times. The ratcheting feature is amazing when working in tight spaces and really speeds things along. I love these things!
The set includes: 10, 12, 13, 14 and 15mm sizes and probably the only drawback with this set is that certain other sizes were NOT included like 8, 9, 11, 16 or 17mm sizes. But since this is not officially an Automotive wrench set I can't be too displeased with that at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gsuburban Important Sizes Missing
Well, these are a great start but, there's no mention of the range of sizes included and it doesn't state 6 or 12 point closed end specs. I have this set except Home Depot does not sell them individually so, you cannot fill in the sizes not included here and/or replace any that are lost etc. A waste of money since there's no 9mm, 11mm, 16mm, or 17mm.
