Unlike most of Sears gimmicky "Mach", "Extreme", etc. wrenches, these are actually useful working on small household items like appliances, etc. Being thinner and having the two different angled ends comes in hand-y. Sears also has an SAE set on sale for $9.99  (half "regular" price).

Btw these are called "ignition wrenches" because of inertia. Before cars had electronic ignition systems, they had a mechanical distributor with "points". You needed little wrenches like these to loosen/tighten the points plate after setting the proper points gap.  Trivia from a dinosaur...

I like using this set. It comes in Handy when you need it. And when you need it, you NEED it.

 Single coil pack in my SUV died 2 days ago. When I replaced it, I showed it to my son and had to explain what it was and that the modern SUV had 6 of those behemoths instead of the single coil and distributor (he's been driving and maintaining my 92 pickup).  His two words ... "Seriously?!   Why?"

Ignition wrench = Tiny.

Good deal! These wrenches are perfect for working on those small odd size metric nuts found on RC models and Model trains.

rated:
The 8-pc metric wrench set is still available for $8.49 but the 8-pc SAE set went up to $19.99.  I also picked up the 10-pc Metric Combination Ignition Wrench Set for $11.99 and the 10-pc SAE Combination Ignition Wrench Set for $9.99
All the 8-pc and 10-pc ignition wrench sets are Made In USA according to the plastic pouches they come in.
