These are different wrenches. The ones in that set are Chinese produced, this set in Taiwan.
Huge amount of difference in the quality of them. The ones in the 20piece set are similar to the husky, the harbor freight and other lower end ratchet wrenches. This set is what you buy off the professional and industrial tool distributors.

Alert set off, anyone recommend a good set of wrenches? Nothing fancy, just need a set. Was hoping this be like 100 pieces or something.

This is a nice set. 8mm through 19mm, without skipping a size.

I wouldn't be so sure that these are still being made in Taiwan. It's possible, but Apex has been moving much of the GearWrench production to China over the last few years - though quality has remained high.

Compared to the 20-piece sets, this one loses the 10 SAE sizes (which are nearly useless for most automotive work) and the 6mm, but picks up the 9mm, 11mm, and 19mm. Although to be honest, the 9 and 11 are probably rarely used and a 3/4" can be used in place of the 19mm. Which set is best really depends on which sizes you personally need for the things that you'll be working on.

Edited: SK to Apex

Tekton wrench sets on Amazon. I got the full sets they don't skip any wrenches. The standard, metric 12 and 6 point are very impressive.

Where would you for warranty if bought from amazon? I know advanceautoparts will replace the whole set if you bring a receipt which is not difficult if you buy online, but still needs to be bought from them. We don't know how long sears is going to be around to honor gearwrench warranties. Do they even still sell gearwrench?

"usual price $165.37"

That is a stretch on Amazon's part....

$62 at home depot for example. $78 at Sears.

You can contact GearWrench directly for warranty replacement (heard it's painless) or return to a store that sells them like Minard's or Sears (while it's still open for business)

SK has no connection whatsoever to Gearwrench. Gearwrench is owned by Apex Tool Group.

I wish these had a 15 degree offset, much more useful imo.

I highly doubt that this particular Gearwrench set is any better than the typical 20pc set we see on sale all the time. They both have the same specs. They appear to be of the same length and both have a 72 tooth ratchet. Neither are angled, flex, or have a reversible ratchet.

The only reason anyone should consider this kit over the 20 pc SAE/Metric combo kit is if you need a 9, 11 or 19mm wrench. I know at least the 9 and 11 are seldom used.

For those that want the 20pc set (which I own and can vouch for their quality), you can get it though Sears for $50 (sometimes $40 if you want to wait): http://www.sears.com/gearwrench-2...935720000P

I've got both. I've got this set at work because they will fit in to places that the others wont. The others are made a lot thicker on the boxed end, and on the open end the head is profiled different. Even the chrome looks different.
