Buying guide: Selecting the best wrenches for your workshop


Finding the perfect key for your workshop may seem complex, but it’s essential for safe, efficient working. This guide will help you make the right choice.

Key types

There are various types of wrench, including adjustable wrenches, combination wrenches (with a flat and a polygonal head) and Allen wrenches (ideal for hexagon socket screws).

Materials and quality

Material quality is crucial. Chrome-vanadium steel is recommended for its durability. Make sure keys are heat-treated, and look for ISO certifications for guaranteed quality.

Ergonomics and size

The wrench must be comfortable to hold and suitable for tight spaces. It’s a good idea to invest in a set of wrenches to cover different sizes.

Brands and prices

Brand reputation is a good indicator of quality. However, don’t sacrifice quality for price. A complete set is often a better investment.

Care and storage

Good maintenance is essential. Clean your keys regularly to prevent rust, and store them properly. Periodically check their condition for wear and tear.


Choosing the right wrench is an investment in the quality of your work. By following this guide, you’ll easily find the right wrenches for your needs.
