    Which tool

    Which would you prefer.

    One of them has a reversible leaver, but the other ones are longer.

    My other question is, do many units use metric or no?

    i dont like the ones with the switch to reverse. i rather flip the wrench. i have a habit of moving switch while im working with it. of course that just me. i have both set. also really only used them while working on cars.

    I got a couple of sets of different styles of gearwrenches. The ones I like best are the ones on the first address you posted. Also, I got mine for $60 @ Lowes.

    Cool

    I carry a set of stubby SAE Gearwrenches on my bag on a large 'D' ring. Strong enough but the short length comes in handy very often.

    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........

    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
