one thing to remember is that cone wrenches (while over all cheap) are still afflicted with the question of quality. since they need to be so thin, it might be worth shelling out a little more bread for ones that will last longer seeing that the really cheap ones can bend (i bought a cheapo crappy one and bent it the first time i used it, and so i had to borrow my dad's which he has had for the last 20 some odd years)
"Cheap tools are never a bargain, and this is especially true of cone wrenches. Because of their extreme thinness for the nut sizes they ht, cone wrenches must be made of especially high quality steel to stand up to the normal stresses that they will be subjected to in use. Inferior cone wrenches will bend, often the first time that they are used, and so become useless. "
