Reader Tip: Craftsman Wrench Set – Includes Keg Wrench – $26.99 + Keg Deals

Thanks to HBF Reader Kevin for this tip!

spin_prod_881129012

Kevin Says: I was looking for this wrench, but having trouble finding it locally and didn’t want to pay $5 for shipping on an item less than $10.  So, I found that the same size wrench is part of a 5-piece set from Sears too, for $26.99 + tax and was available at my closest Sears!  Since I didn’t have any good wrenches (only socket sets), this was a nice option for me.
