Do you have a col­lec­tion of stan­dard and met­ric hex wrenches in your work­shop? It’s frus­trat­ing to look for a cer­tain size in the mid­dle of a build, so here’s a cheap and easy fix. Col­lect all your com­mon-size hex wrenches and fill match­ing holes in a scrap piece of lum­ber, then add lengths of red and green heat-shrink tub­ing to each wrench. Any color will do, but I use green for stan­dard SAE sizes and red for met­ric. To make it even eas­ier to find the right-size wrench, write its size on the shrink tub­ing be­fore shrink­ing it down. Neat and or­ga­nized. John D’Anna, New Fair­field, Con­necti­cut
