    Default 16mm Combinaation Wrench

    Why is it that you can't buy a 16mm combination wrench without buying a set? It happens that 2 of the 3 drain plugs on my MF2615 are 16mm. They are available as individual sockets at Sears but not as individual wrenches. They've got 15mm and 17mm but not 16. I wound up buying an offset wrench in 16 and 18mm which should work fine.

    Could it be a personal thing? Could Sears actually hate you?

    Just about any auto parts store on the planet sells open stock wrenches. I'd be surprised if your favorite big-box home improvement store didn't, too. Fact of the matter is, I just went on Sears' site and there are no fewer than four 16MM wrenches that can be purchased individually for under $11.10 each, not counting the more expensive ratcheting box end combination wrench.

    You should be able to go into any good auto parts store and buy a single wrench but, sets are much cheaper than individual items purchased one at a time.

    I know that someone will be angry about this but a 5/8 is VERY close. If you have a six point wrench there is little chance that you would round anything. 5/8 is 15.875 mm

    Just send someone else into the store. They must not like you

    Which really means that a 16MM wrench works a heck of a lot better in place of a 5/8" than does a 5/8" in place of a 16mm. BTDT.

    Like Chuckie said, 5/8" will work perfectly. I personally wish the US would just adopt the metric system and move on. It is so much easier to work with!

    Craig, we did adapt the metric system a long, long time ago, when it comes to money. They just forgot to tell us we were using metric.
