Wrench Sizes Chart

Because you aren’t dealing with different ratchet drive sizes, wrench sizes are a little easier to figure out than socket sizes. While the normal fixed wrench set or ratcheting wrench set won’t contain every size of a wrench, you’ll probably only need a few of them in general.

A car mechanic will need a wide variety of wrench sizes, whereas someone working on bicycles or farming equipment may only use a few.

There are Standard (SAE) and Metric wrench sizes, and you can find all wrench sizes in order that can range from the smallest to the largest and come as part of a set for activities like these.

When working with SAE and metric nuts and bolts, you can mix and match socket sets, or you need an SAE to metric size wrench conversion chart for the mm to SAE equivalent for all the sockets you need. (Read Spark Plug Wrench Sizes)
