This week I received my Wright D980 full-polish metric combination wrench set from JD Industrial Supply. Prior to this, I did not have a high-quality set of 12-point metric combination wrenches. In fact, since I’ve destroyed some over the years, I didn’t have a complete set of ANY quality.
The Wright D980 set is a thing of beauty. The set comes with a 3/4″ MDF merchandiser board to hang on the wall. The wrenches are very comfortable and very strong, and have a flawless chrome finish. The open ends have WrightGrip on the 7mm to 24mm sizes, and the box ends have WrightDrive. They’re what I’d call mid-length: longer than a Toptul SuperTorque or a Craftsman raised-panel, but shorter than a Snap-On or a Craftsman Professional. The set contains 24 wrenches: 6mm-27mm, 30mm, 32mm. The set is significantly less expensive than an equivalent Snap-On Flank Drive set, while including the very nice merchandiser board.
I’d put these up against my few Snap-On wrenches for quality and strength any day of the week. But they’re thicker, which is a disadvantage when reaching into a very confined space but an advantage in terms of strength and comfort.
