Check out these X-Beam Wrenches
GearWrench 12 Piece Set Metric X-Beam Combination Ratcheting Wrench has decreased from $129.49 to $109.63. I’m watching some products on Amazon.com, and that set is one of them, so I get notifications when the price goes up or down. $20 down is unprecedented. I love my GearWrench X-Beam 19mm wrench. The X-Beam thing isn’t a gimmick, it’s really comfortable. I wish my Craftsman and other GearWrench wrenches had this twist.
Both of my GearWrench wrenches have withstood a year of use, especially when working on my 850’s suspension. Full disclosure, my 21mm GearWrench broke, but instead of returning it I pressed it back together, and it’s worked fine for a year.
Bonus! Volvo’s Roots
Volvo first started making cars in 1927, but that wasn’t the first Volvo product. In 1911, founders Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson registered Volvo as a trademark for ball bearings – Volvo means ‘I roll’ in Latin. When Gabrielsson and Larson moved into car manufacturing, they chose the ancient chemical symbol for iron as a logo to symbolise the strength and power of a Volvo.
