I wanted to replace the 1986 vintage Hazet set with the new "Flank Drive" versions so I got these, here is through 24 the bigger ones will come back with me next time.
Nice wrenches.




These are line wrenches from Stahlwille. I have no idea what chrome alloy they are made from but they feel light and very comfortable in the hand, they are not polished, blasted or ground at all, this is their naked finish. They are super strong, fit perfectly and don't spread.
A bit pricey in the USA I suspect (I haven't looked).

Nice! I have an SK set that only goes to 19 and I would love 20-24.

I thought snap on made the best line wrenches on the planet, I've never even considered the stahlwilles. But I suppose wrenching on euro cars with euro tools is what dreams are made of.

The Hazet wrenches in an E 28 tool kit are very good. I kept a spare 8-10mm open end on the radiator shelf in the 528e. Darn good wrenches

I would have opted for the Stahlwille No.14 long pattern combination wrenches instead.

Got em already. I don't like the box or jaw angle.

Very nice.

Even the new ones look vintage.

I see why you prefer not polished, ground, chrome coated, blasted etc. Makes hiding flaws that much harder too.

How do the edges of the beam on those Hazet wrenches feel?
Do they bite into your fingers with sharp corners?

Nothing like German made products! Nice pics Trav.....Those wrenches will still be here after most of us are gone. You have to pay a lot of money to get quality tools made in USA.
