Across the board, the Bosch HTH181 wins for being the most ergonomic, and this was almost unanimous from our users. Milwaukee’s Gen2 (2767) and Ingersoll Rand’s W7150 tied for second in ergonomics. The Ingersoll Rand is also the lightest of the bunch, weighing just 6.88 pounds with the 5.0 Ah battery. Bosch and DeWALT followed in a close 2nd and 3rd, at only 7.04 and 7.10 pounds, respectively. The heaviest tool in the batch is the Matco Tools at 8.02 pounds, with the 4.0 Ah battery.
Wrenches are used for tightening and loosening nuts and bolts and they come in many sizes. An adjustable wrench allows you to work with many different sizes without having to change tools. Combo wrenches include a ratchet head at the other end and socket wrenches hold various sizes of fasteners in one head. Find a wrench set to meet your needs whether you need a set of 5 to keep on your boat, or larger set for working on the car or around the house.

Size is usually designated by dimensions such as across-flats distance (inscribed-hexagon size). In the 19th and early 20th centuries, it had been common to define the nominal size of the wrench according to the nominal size of the screw thread that it was meant to be used with. Modern practice uses a size designation based on across-flats distance, whether measured in metric or in inch units.
One of the features on the Milwaukee 2767 that stood out is the “Bolt Removal” mode. This was not found on any other impact wrench we tested. On the push-button speed selection at the base of the impact, you can select 1-3. Setting 1 is the slowest and 3, the fastest. The fourth selection is the “Bolt Removal” mode, indicated by a circular arrow designation. When this mode is selected, the user holds their finger on the trigger—once the fastener breaks loose, the Milwaukee senses this and slows the RPM to just 750 to finish removing the nut. This keeps the nut from flying across the shop.
If someone or something throws a wrench into the works or throws a monkey wrench into the works, they cause problems which prevent something from happening in the way that was planned. Of course they may not sign the agreement by the sixteenth and that would throw a monkey wrench into the works. Note: Instead of saying the works, people often describe the situation in which the problem is caused. Most health-related problems, of course, are not life-threatening, but they can throw a wrench into an otherwise pleasant holiday. The US delegation threw a giant monkey wrench into the process this week by raising all sorts of petty objections. Note: The usual British expression is throw a spanner in the works.
