One of Craftsman’s better designs, now made even better. Though disliked by some I have always found the Crossforce series of wrenches have a place in my tool arsenal.

From rusted and over torqued bolts to hard to reach nuts. They have their uses. Now with the addition of a reversible ratcheting open end they are even more versatile. One problem I have found with them is their length. This can make them awkward at times. This also gives us the excuse to buy more wrenches in different styles and sizes.

As you can see in the above picture there is also a set that includes sockets to use in the ratcheting end. This seems to me to be another great ideal. Many of us have already used sockets like this in ratcheting wrenches for some time now.
