Post tools post wrenches post boxes and shops

I 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.

did you take a punch and bend the nut into the slot?

>>21056397
A 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
>>
>>21056368
Yeah but these axle nuts are kind of 'tired'. I gave em another good whack but they just need to be replaced
>>
>>21056285
I 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/.

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.

I'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
>>
>>21063540
You did remind me I need to get a tech cart. Been looking at the SunEx with the locking screwdriver box on the side
>>
>>21063540
While 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.

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

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 !!!

Do 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
>>
>>21065539
Some 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.

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 !
>>
>>21065545
ok 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

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 3/8
why
>>
>>21065897
when i work on heavy machinery i use half inch
when i work on normal car (my daily ) i use 3/8
when i work in tight spaces like in a dash or on stereos i use 1/4
>>
>>21065630
damn now you have to gouge the other side
>>
>>21065897
1/2" 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
>>21066257
maybe you two are right, I'll get a 3/8 set to witness the wonders of it myself

until 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
>>
>>21066322
I don't even have any 3/8" drive sockets over 22mm
but they are pretty convenient even down to 9-10mm
