Forgive me, just my 2nd deal post:

Just got an alert that these were at their lowest price ever (Previous low looks to be $38.99). They are of similar quality to the Harbor Freight ratcheting wrenches without the flex head, meaning they're very serviceable for a DIY'er. I have a set of these that I keep in my road trip bag for emergencies.

This set covers every size from 8-19mm and claim 5* gearing.

Yep, they're made of Chineesium, but as a DIY'er who will tackle every automotive product, these are absolutely worth a look.

if this company wasn't in the market for selling cheap chinese products I might give it a try. I would definitely not use these on automotive like the OP stated because they will likely break once you have one stuck bolt and need to really torque it down.

I would personally pay $10 more for a 10 piece husky set with lifetime warranty but without flex head
metric

standard

$60 for standard and metric in a 30 piece set which includes stubby

I'd pass, I've used cheap flex heads that have been worn out before and they are basically useless when the head has no tension.

FWIW I was able to pick up Lowe's Kobalt metric and SAE flex heads for 80 bucks total shipped new on eBay. Easy lifetime warranty and a better wrench to begin wtih, albeit with a couple missing sizes.

The only reason I was quick to post these is because I've had this set for a year and have stood up to a decent amount of hobbyist abuse. The 19mm has been a lifesaver a few times with suspension bolts that were hard to reach with a non-flex head. I appreciate the suggestions you posted and do need a stubby set, but sometimes a non-flex wrench just wont cut it. I've got a few hobbyist cars, and when I take a road trip I generally like to have some emergency supplies with. This kit would be great for either an emergency bag or an emergency drawer in a garage toolbox. Flex heads aren't always needed, but sometimes no other tool will do. I've had a hard time justifying $80+ on a set that won't get used all that often.
