What, do you think that a 1/2" diameter SAE bolt has a head with flats that are 1/2" across?
Bzzzzzzzt. Thanks for playing, though.

No, but I think it takes a 1/2" wrench.

takes a 9/16" wrench. A 7/16 bolt takes a 5/8" wrench, and a 1/2 inch bolt takes an 11/16 inch wrench. 9/16 uses 3/4, just off the top of my head.
The issue with METRIC is there are several "standards" Japanese (JAS?) standard uses 10mm on 6mm bolts, 12mm on 8, and 14mm on 10 and 17mm on 10 American Metric uses 11mm on 6, 13mm on 8, 15mm on 10 and 18? on 10.
European stuff can be either, from what I remember.(ISO)

So how come my damn tin shed uses nuts and bolts that take an 11/32" wrench? Which NONE of my several sets of sockets or nutdrivers or box wrenches includes, and nobody in town sells onesies in oddball sizes? (except maybe Sears, who wants an arm and a leg for onesies, to make up for their deep-discount sets.)

Ha! Check some other tool Mfgs, like Snap-On, Mac and all those, and you'll find Craftsman is a pretty good deal.
So if you work with a lot of 11/32" stuff, go get a socket or two... perhaps a 1/4" drive 6pt standard and deep (Being so small, I'm not so sure they're even made in 3/8" drive). An 11/32" combination wrench, and/or long box end that includes that size, and your set up for most anything. They won't run you much, add them to your set, and with minimal care will out last you and the shed many times over.
Even though the shed may require a lot of 11/32" stuff, all in all it's really not a very common size nationwide. 1/4" and 5/16" by far surpass it as the head size for smaller screw wrench sizes.

PS, All this 11/16" stuff is hex head right? If not, get 8pt sockets. Last I looked, a couple of years ago now, Craftsman still carried them.

Some of the SAE sized hardware from China is being manufactured from metric hex stock in the case of nuts: I have some 1/4-20 nuts with 10 mm flats. Normally these would be 7/16" or 11 mm. The plating is pretty good, though. And they were quite low priced.

1/4" drive socket set or nutdriver set. Or you can always use a 4" crescent wrench. Or like a friend of mine does - he drives them with his little electric dril - 3 jaw chucks work great on hex nuts.

I don't get how someone can't understand that why an M10 bolt doesn't use a 10mm wrench!!! Did you ever saw a bolt that had a same size head as the shaft??? Ex:1/2" bolt (shaft) with a 1/2" head! Man I think you need to stop turning wrenches before you kill someone!

Which is exactly the same as having a head with flats that are 1/2" across.
It doesn't, by the way. The head is *always* larger than the diameter of the bolt.

There are two dimensions at work here: 1) the bolt shaft, and 2) the bolt head.
The "10mm" refers to the diameter of the /shaft/ of the bolt.
The "17mm" refers to the flat-to-flat dimension of /head/ of the bolt.

You're a Communist, aren't you. Your explanation sounds reasonsable, just like one a Communist would use.
And you sound helpful, just like a Communiist would be, until you trust him.
But I'm not going to fall for that.
Maybe you're a Socialist. Everything I said about Communists applies to them too.
