Wrenches, Hand, Twelve Point, High Strength, Thin Wall
- Aerospace Standard
Published March 20, 2023 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers high strength thin wall (commercial) sockets, universal sockets, box wrenches and torque adaptors which possess the strength, clearances, and internal wrenching design so configured that, when mated with bi-hexagonal fasteners conforming to the requirements of AS870 for inch sizes and ISO 4095 for metric sizes, they shall transmit torque to the fastener without bearing on the outer 5% of the fastener's wrenching points.
Inclusion of dimensional data in this document is not intended to imply that all the products described herein are stock production sizes. Consumers are requested to consult with manufacturers concerning lists of stock production sizes. The dimensional limits of box and combination wrench lengths have been established to provide configuration control for tool storage applications.
The update of AS954 is to incorporate improvements and corrections compiled from committee findings and to incorporate AS955 into the AS954 standard. Bolt clearance requirements were reorganized to promote ease of use. Corrections were made to the qualification tests for wrench design and cycle torque. The 1/4 inch drive x 9/16 inch hand universal socket and 1-5/16 through 1-5/8 inch combination wrenches were added. Torque requirements for select box wrenches were increased to ensure a logical progression by nominal size. Wrench opening depth, bolt clearance diameter, bolt clearance length, and overall length dimensions for metric socket wrenches were updated to accommodate the bi-hexagonal (also known as double-hexagon or 12-point) fasteners common in the aerospace industry.

The SAE EG-1B Aerospace Hand Tool Committee addresses all facets of aerospace hand tools and tool kits in of support equipment-design, maintenance, and in-service experience. It focuses on support equipment and facilities related to gas turbine engine testing, balancing, engine accessory testing, inspection, packaging, handling, and transportability. High performance hand tools for aerospace applications are also addressed by EG-1B. The group is comprised of government, original equipment manufacturers, and users dedicated to creating, preparing and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards and requirements for aerospace propulsion system support equipment.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
