    But not the angles and offset of a combination end wrench. I believe that was worked out in the factories during WW II.

    I'm quite sure I'm not alone when I say I have "modified" a few for a more proper fit... More so the box ends, like for the front inner bolts of an Enderle hat, but also a pretty good collection of bent up open ends when the designed "proper angle" just wasn't quite right.... Boats are easy compared to cars/trucks that have assembled drive trains before the body goes on... Just once I'd like to see a GM, or Ford, or Chrysler engineer have to work on their stuff when it is a completed assembly.... I won't even get into the "special angles" required when dealing with aircraft or ordnance.... You see, those "cheap" tools are good for something....

    My question is, why do we need SAE and metric. Pick one and stick with it. My old chevy was built in Canada and and a mix of both were on there.

    I replaced a water pump on an 82 GM 2.8 once. It had 9 bolts holding it on. 6 were two different sizes SAE and three were metric. Guess they couldn't make up their mind.

    The 2 metrics were factory fixes for stripped threads
