    I don't see how asking here is more effective than just trying a bigger wrench.

    I think he's buying a new, single wrench, every time he tries a new size.

    Either buy a set it get an adjustable wrench.

    It's probably more expensive to buy one at a time as opposed to buying a set.

    Not if you go to Harbor Freight. I've bought a whole set of Pitsburg open/box end for the price of one 13 mm long Snap-on wrench. And the kicker here is the Pitsburg wrenches are fine quality.

    Yeah, but you can't compare Harbor Freight to Snap-On.

    I love Harbor Freight, but they are known more for bargains than quality.

    I damn sure can. I have a very large rollaway packed with snap-on tools. The tool truck stops by regularly. Their warrenties are second to none but they have to replace a lot of broken tools and 12 point sockets that wear out and slip around a bolt. their wrenches are better but very expensive. Thier ratchets are as second rate as an old time Japanese wrench made of discarded american beer cans. They reverse themselves when a tight bolt pops loose and bust your knuckles. On the otherhand the pitsburg ratchets are no better. In the past 10 to 15 years I have been using Harbor frieght tools I haven't broken a single socket or had one wear out even when used with an impact or an adapter on a 3/8 socket and a 24" breaker bar.
    You can't beat the quality. Snap-on chrome rusts and they guarantee against that. Pitsburg from Harbor frieght wrenches feel good to the hands and don't rust even when abused by leaving out in the rain.
    Sounds like a commercial ad but it is true.

    Snap on tools are more for professional every day situations.....

    Harbor freight more for the once in a while do it your selfer.......


    When I worked in the trade Craftsman, Pittsburgh would crack & strip.
    snap on tools were reliable ..
    .. has lasted me for years.....and made wallet lose a bunch of weight ...
    Nothing worse than having to ask another tech to borrow tools when your cheaply quality tools break and you got 3 cars on the rack..

    You lose time and money in the trade......but at home is different ....
