Service Wrenches

I bought this set of service wrenches a couple months ago from Harbor Freight.  I needed some larger size stubby wrenches for aircraft systems work and was having trouble justifying the cost.  My old man was die hard Snap-On and he has spent many hours trying to convince me to quit buying Craftsman and upgrade to the good stuff.  This makes for a bit of a pickle because the service wrench sets can get pretty pricey and I wasn't sure I would like using a service wrench for AN hardware.  I was about ready to saw a set of large Pittsburgh wrenches in half to make them work in a pinch and I realized the Pittsburgh Service Wrenches were the same price, and I am really happy I did.  The wrenches look and work great.  They are bare metal, so they don't have that cheap chrome look, but most importantly they're great for AN fittings in tight spaces.
