Published by LS FP Western on 19th May 2023


At Western Equipment, we carry a wide selection of hand tools from SureWerx, Apex, Lufkin, Snap-On Industrial, Lenox, and Irwin. All of our hand tools are perfect for uses on job sites of all sizes, from DIY projects to large construction sites.


Combination wrenches consist of one open end and one box end, usually of the same size. This type of wrench is perfect for both tightening and loosening nuts and bolts in any application or setting. All of our combination wrenches are available in both metric and standard sizes, so you are sure to find the perfect fit for your specific project.


Socket wrenches consist of a handle with a 90-degree ratchet, along with a set of cylinder shaped sockets of various sizes. This type of wrench can be set to either tighten or loosen nuts, while keeping the socket in place on the nut while turning the handle. All of our socket wrenches come with an accompanying set of sockets in different sizes.


Adjustable wrenches feature a lower jaw that can be adjusted to fit different sizes of nuts or bolts. This hand tool product is ideal for both tightening and loosening nuts and bolts. All of our adjustable wrenches are designed to work with both standard and metric fasteners.


Torque wrenches are used to apply a specific torque to a fastener, such as a nut or a bolt. This type of hand tool is designed to mimic the form of a socket wrench with the added bonus of special internal mechanisms.


Hex keys, also more commonly known as Allen wrenches, are the perfect addition to any toolbox. This type of hand tool works to tighten or loosen hex-head screws and bolts. All of our hex key products are available in both standard and metric sizes, as well as with T-handles for improved leverage. Allen wrenches can also be bought as separate wrenches or as a part of a set where the wrenches fold up into a handle.


Unlike regular sockets, impact sockets are specifically designed to cope with the vibration caused by the impact of the hammer on the anvil inside of an impact wrench. The combination of an impact wrench and impact socket can deliver greater torque to the head of the fastener than can be achieved with a manual wrench.


Screwdrivers are hand-held, manually powered implements designed for the insertion and tightening of screws. This type of hand tool comes in a wide variety of sizes to match the sizes of different screws. Some of the types of screw drivers that we carry include:


Slotted (flat-head or standard)


Square tip

Handheld punches are most commonly used for removing pins and bushings, as well as cutting or splitting steel objects. Punches are available in two different types: hollow and solid.

Hollow punches are designed to puncture a surface, such as sheet metal or leather in order to create hole.

Solid punches are one-piece, rod-shaped tools made of metal designed to be struck by a hammer. These are typically used to drive objects, such as pins or to form impressions on a work piece.
