    Ratcheting tubing wrenches for tightening up the nuts on tubing type fittings.

          Got the wrenches from ebay. They are in great condition-brand new! Just not sure of the relevance of the flavored condoms that came with them.

            If you are working with Swagelok or Parker tube fittings then the 9/16, 11/16, and 7/8" would be the most popular in the set for 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" double ferrule compression tube fittings.
            "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
            John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

                I can tell you what these wrenches are absolutely marvelous for:- Any job where you can only get a fork spanner on, but the nescessary force demands a ring spanner. Loosening the fittings on car brakes, where you often end up with "round hexes" is a joy if you have these wrenches. Pipe & tube rep or maintenance is a completely different ball game, if you are the happy owner of this set. My only gripe, is as usuall, that I can't get them metric! (I live in Norway) but OK, this applies to a lot of Ridgid's products.
