    I swear by the RE Michel 6 in 1 with the red plastic/black rubber handle. 4 bucks, works great. I've lost half a dozen of them, never broken one. I just buy another every once in awhile.

    I buy them at the flea market. Find them all day long, say Made In USA on them. I really like the Wright brand wrench I've got, as well as the Klein. I spent ten bucks on the pair.
