It is really nice to now have a proper set of tools for this service.

The ball bearing cone nut requires a thin wrench, so a standard combination wrench is too fat for the cone nut flats and cannot be used.

The Park Tool SCW-SET.3 shop cone wrench set includes 14 wrenches. These are: 13mm; 14mm; 15mm; 16mm; 17mm; 18mm; 19mm; 20mm; 21mm; 22mm; 23mm; 24mm; 26mm and 28mm.

All wrenches have the handle dipped in a blue vinyl, 3-7/8" long, w/ white printing showing the size and part number. All wrenches have a small hole in the handle for a wall hanging hook. The steel is 0.085" thick. The cushioned grip is 0.21" thick. The overall length on the smaller wrenches, 13mm to 20mm is 8", on the medium wrenches, 21mm to 24mm is 8-1/8" and on the large wrenches 26mm and 28mm is 8-3/8". The handle width on the smaller wrenches, 13mm to 24mm is 7/8" and on the large wrenches, 26mm and 28mm is 1". The mass ranges from 76g to 102g.

I would not hesitate to recommend these tools.

This has been a very useful thread.

With Cone Wrench sets, I have held off so far, simply because I understand you may only need two or three wrenches and maybe even two of the same size, for one's wheels.

What has been your experience here?
