Sunex Stubby Wrench Set

I needed a stubby wrench set because my kitchen faucet kept getting loose and the wrenches in my tool collection were all too large to work with underneath the kitchen sink. I did a quick search on Amazon and this set seemed reasonably priced for a 10-piece combination set and even came with a roll bag. I would have preferred the Craftsman set, but I couldn’t justify the $65 so I took the plunge on a brand I’d never heard of. Have you heard of Sunex? If not, you might want to take note, because I’d avoid them if possible.

The roll bag is a nice nylon bag and keeps all the wrenches neatly organized and in place. It uses a long velcro tie to keep the bag securely closed. The combo wrenches are a convenient size for working in tight spaces and appear to be machined well. I was able to complete my job under the kitchen sink without much of a fuss. Unfortunately, when I was inspecting them later to write this review, I painfully found out that Sunex may want to review their manufacturing process.

Not all, but a few of the wrenches near the box end had exposed jagged metal. It’s as if someone took a saw and tried to cut a piece of it. I snagged my thumb on it and it hurt like heck. As soon as I realized that it was more than one of the pieces that had this flaw, I packed it back up to send back to Amazon.

It’s possible I got a bad batch of wrenches, but I’m not willing to give them another try. I’ll try another inexpensive brand first, but if those have similar issues, I may have to bite the bullet and go with the tried and true Craftsman.

Available from Amazon.com.
