3 Amazing Tools for Mechanical Engineers!

Mechanical engineers are some of the most hard working people and the work involved is mostly of physical nature. Therefore, it is important for them to have the right tools so as to be more productive and get the work done in a smarter way and easier way.

The team at EW got to work and we identified 3 tools which could really make a difference. These are:

1. Bionic Wrench

2. CLC work gloves

3. Lever gear Tool Card

Now let’s look closely to each of them and figure out how helpful they are!

Bionic Wrench

It is a combination of adjustable wrench and a pair of pliers this making it one of most the most unique product out there. By getting hold of all 6 flat sides removes the stress and strain on the corners of the bolt. With the amazing gripping action of the jaws allows the user to complete the task without the wrench slipping off and damaging the bolt.

The wrench can easily be used with 16 sizes of fasteners from 7/16 to ¾ inch and from 11 to 20mm.

Tool is much easier to use than a regular adjustable wrench.

Summary : The 6-Inch Bionic Wrench is a remarkable patented hybrid of an adjustable wrench with the ease of use of a pair of pliers. In addition, the genius of attacking a bolt/nut on all 6 flat sides removes the stress and strain on the corners of the bolt. This coupled with the superior gripping action of the jaws, allows the user to complete their work without the wrench slipping off and damaging the bolt.

CLC Gloves

Probably one of the most unique and innovative gloves out there. It’s not just well made but it’s well engineered. It is not only stylish but at the same time tough, warm, flexible and provides you enough insulation so you don’t freeze if ever you have to work out and mechanical engineers that’s highly likely to happen.

Since we are no more in stone age, three fingers of the gloves are modified in such a way which enables you to interact with touchscreens without having to remove the gloves from your hand.

5 out of 5! This is by far the most durable multi tool that fits in a wallet. I use a minimalist wallet (as seen in photo) and this is a great addition while still keeping my wallet small. Also, this sucker is durable and isn't bending anytime soon! Two words: Buy it.
