Post tools post wrenches post boxes and shopsI bought these meme-ass wrenches and went to do a brake job because my car was making brake noises but it turned out my axle nuts were loose so I didn't even get to use them.
>>21056293did you take a punch and bend the nut into the slot?
>>21056285why is your 3/8'' socket set mixed? Those 6 points just come out of no where
>>21056285better use a punch to indent the axle nut
The only tool you need is duct tape and scissors >Sip
>>21056397A crazed boomer man on craigslist gave me the set for free and I supplemented it with some larger 3/8" sockets I already had. Those are like 20-22mm so I hardly use em
>>21056368Yeah but these axle nuts are kind of 'tired'. I gave em another good whack but they just need to be replaced
>>21056285I noticed my rear tire was a couple psi low the other day, so I pulled out the old compressor and set her right. Worked like a charm.*sip* Yep.Feels good to be /wrenchin/.

Got a new bahco-set today, seems fine
Was it worth what I paid ? Probably not. But fuck it speeds up having to deal with any fasteners that require way too many damn turns to get off. Feels good man.
>>21057028That looks comfy. How are the ratchets?
Milwaukee impact wrenches aret the shit. 8 have about 2k invested in them, batteries and tools. as form my hand tools, its all snap on mac. i think i have a matco oil pressure guage. i have a box like this but a differernt color
>>21059062Pretty good, the heads are a bit small, neat for tight spots, but feels a bit unstable
this and a set of wrenches is all I nedd to fix a car
Ase master tech reporting in, what u got on my setup homie?
>>21057185i want one of these
>>21062391Looks like you do mostly do oil changes and brakes kek
>>21060537based kraut toolsthe only German manufactured tools I have are a Gedore tommy bar and a ratcheting tap wrench
>>21063508I'm actually a lube tech so I dont even do brakes. But I'm also ASE master certified, this a summer gig I picked up while i moved out of state for school for 6 months, which is why all my tools are harbor freight shit in their own little carrying cases, i drove 3700 miles out here and only brought the bare ass minimum for this job
>>21063540You did remind me I need to get a tech cart. Been looking at the SunEx with the locking screwdriver box on the side
>>21063540While your grandma is proud when you say you're ASE certified, to anyone who has ever done any ase certifications, it's just cringy.The vast majority of the courses are total blow offs for anyone with an IQ above 95.
>>21063707I'm the kind of guy who rebuilds saab transmissions for fun and I've never done ASE, but I am kinda curious. Are there good sample tests?
I've a small socket set in my BMW that has proven to be quite fucking handy, I can do most on the spot repairs and disassembly with it.Top it off with the original BMW toolkit in the trunk lid and a decent hammer with a leatherman in the trunk and I'm good
>>21063766When you are taking BMW engines out and rebuilding them it's a nightmare, you need allen sockets, torx, and external torx niggaz
>>21060463Buying from the eternal tool Jew, I’ll spend a fortune on tools because that’s what makes me money, but I will never buy more than a us general harbor freight box.
>>21063728Classic 900 transaxles or f25/f35s?
>>21064414The classic of course. Nobody wants to work on them anymore
This one shidded and farded itself to death
>>21065295Looks like it just needs some gear restoration-fluid
>>21065340pretty sure it's supposed to look like this instead
Most of my tools are Milwaukee,snapon ,Matco like the other guy said I make my living using them might as well have nice stuff I’m still saving up to buy a devilbiss dv1 tho (collision repair shop I’m a painter before a mechanic)
Nissan Maxima front bumper 2012
The bumper and fender for that maxima I painted
Snap on 1/2 ratchet Matco 88 tooth 12 inch 3/8 ratchet Milwaukee 4flat 1/4 and 3/8 inch kits sae and metric With Matco extensions just in case
Milwaukee wrenches I still want to buy the ratcheting wrenches but haven’t gotten around to it yet
I still need to buy some more knipex stuff and more needle nose pliers
to add to it i got lazy and didn't feel like posting any of my power tools but its a Milwaukee polisher fuelMilwaukee 3/8 ratchet fuelMilwaukee hex impact and drill Milwaukee hex impact and drill fuel Milwaukee dremel Milwaukee circular saw Milwaukee flashlight Milwaukee hacksaw-all Milwaukee 1/2 high torque impact wrench fuelim sure there is some stuff i forgot if need be ill post it later but i doubt it btw tho the 3/8 ratchet is amazing def recommend
>>21065423how are those open ends? it seems like every brand has a variation on the anti-slip design now
>>21065472i absolutely love them i just hate the price tag on them ,they have amazing grip when it comes to taking bolts off and stripped bolts as well
>>21065463post pic and quick rundown on that 3/8 ratchet
The Milwaukee wrench
>>21065506wow that's pretty aggressivehere are some of the ones I've run into, by Mac, Wright, and SK
Battery last all day long (10 to 4 or 5 ) that’s me hammering down on it all day long haven’t smashed my knuckles like I did with my old air tools I get it dirty drop it ,scratch it covered in oil and I’ve NEVER had any problems with it at all I use brake cleaner at the end of the day to clean it off and it’s like new again I absolutely recommend it (if you see yourself using it more the 8 hours a day buy two battery’s ) oh and you can lock it and use it to break nuts loose as well !!!
I forgot to add when you buy it the battery has a 3 year warranty and the tool has a 5 year warranty the red dots is how much battery you have left ...
>>21065517Do you like your sk wrenches I’ve seen a lot of ppl talking about um but I’ve never seen where to buy them if not online
>>21065539Some industrial supply/tractor shops have SK, Wright, and Proto in stock, but I think the x-frames will be way more online.They are great but I haven't had them long enough to swear by em.
>>21065545*way more available online
Honestly you guys this is my most important tool .... yet it’s my most neglected,beat to shit ,(cheapest as well tool I have ) I really need to get my shit together and buy a new paint gun lol without this I could make 3/4 of the money I make it’s embarrassing honestly !
>>21065545ok ok sounds good to me im just looking for a cheaper alternative to the Milwaukee for ratcheting wrenches there 225 for a set and yes they are worth it 100% but god damn the gear wrench alternative is 120 $ cheaper !!! its not like im always going to be using the ratcheting wrench .... its truly a toss up for me i might just bite the bullet and buy um or i might just keep waiting hoping for some deal i may come across who knows
>>21065560couldn't make 3/4 of the money i make wtf is up with my spelling and grammar today
>>21065517>>21065517This is my Matco and Milwaukee wrench You can see the Milwaukee has a bit of a notch at the back end it is also a smaller profile then my Matco (teeth are crazy aggressive in comparison to the Matcos no tooth design )
My first time using an angle grinder, and I put a big gouge in my control arm on accident
>>21065416>has 1/2 and 1/4 sockets>still gets 3/8why
>>21065897when i work on heavy machinery i use half inch when i work on normal car (my daily ) i use 3/8when i work in tight spaces like in a dash or on stereos i use 1/4
>>21065630damn now you have to gouge the other side
>>210658971/2" drive tools are usually too chonkin and 1/4" tools too weak for tight engine bay work. I use 3/8" drive for almost everything, you spend less time jumping drive sizes that way
>>21066248>>21066257maybe you two are right, I'll get a 3/8 set to witness the wonders of it myselfuntil then, I still think that 3/8 drive is too small for "big" fasteners (over 27mm) and too big for small fasteners (below 14mm) and only appropiate for bikes
>>21066322I don't even have any 3/8" drive sockets over 22mmbut they are pretty convenient even down to 9-10mm
>>21063707t. NOT ase master certified pad slapper
>>21063766my E21 and E30 both pretty much only seem to use 10mm, 13, 17, and (only in a couple instances) 19mm
>>21066534lucky bastardon E36 you have everything from 10 to 19mm then the meme fasteners like torx, e-torx, and allen
>>21066534>E21awesome. such underrated little cars
