These crowfoot wrenches caught my eye as I was walking through the local Sears — at first I thought they were the same old tool in a new package, but a second look showed ’em to be a new-to-me flare-nut version. Attached to an extension, crowfoot wrenches have often helped me get to out-of-reach fasteners, and these flare-nut versions should do the same trick for those hard-to-reach hydraulic fittings.
The wrenches come in both metric and standard ten-piece sets — the standard sets are in sizes 3/8″ to 1″, and the metric are in sizes 10 to 19mm. The fully polished wrenches have the look of Sears’ professional line of tools.
Craftsman’s Crowfoot Flare Nut Wrenches sell for about $80 per set.
