Hand tool models

Hand tool models

(OP)
Does anyone have or know where to get models of hand tools? I got some off a post on solidworks forum, link below. We usually use larger (1" plus) box wrenches, sockets etc. the models in the solidworks forum only go up to 5/8". I have not been successful searching 3D content central.

I just want the models to check clearances.

RE: Hand tool models

I personally don't trust public models for clearances.
The Machinery Handbook will show them.

We have a company standards sheet with wrench clearances. But, sometimes its nice to stick a wrench model in the assembly to see if it is accessible.
