Spline wrenches are cool because you can turn a variety of different fastener heads such as hex, partially rounded hex, 12pt, square, external Torx, and yes, even spline heads, with one wrench.  If you’re willing to give up the ratcheting feature in the Stanley Proto and SK spline wrenches, you can get a set of seven Craftsman combo open end/box spline wrenches from Sears for under $20.

Craftsman angles the wrench heads by 15° to save your knuckles and they reinforce the open end so the wrench doesn’t deform under high torque, rounding the head. The set normally includes 5/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″, and 11/16″ wrenches, but to be nice Sears is throwing in a 5/8″ wrench and a storage tray.

    Are these different than Metrinch wrenches?

    Don’t know the difference between these and Metrinch, I do know they’re made in China.

    These are standard and metric sized like 6 and 12 point wrenches. The holders are setup to hold the “extra” wrench, so it really isn’t extra. Yes, they are sourced from China, but they are probably made with American scrap iron, as China was buying most of it. They have been on sale for $9 a set, so don’t jump at the $20 price.

    are these thing really any good even the sk ones?

    Where have they been on sale for $9? That’s probably all they are worth. Cheap tools made in China. Shame on Sears for calling them Craftsman.
