Re: s&k screwdrivers

I don't own a set myself but a guy I used to work with had a set. I used them a couple times and was not terribly impressed. I don't think they are bad, I just think that the tool truck screwdrivers...

Re: Genius Tool Impact Sockets

Thanks, I never knew that. It's a 40% off list discount, it brings that set to around $77 which is a good deal as long as its good stuff. I might have to break out $50 and become a supporter.

Re: 3/8 to 1/4 adapter

Re: Would you buy USA Craftsman Industrial from value viewpoint?

The RP is a terrible ratchet for high torque work. They skip teeth, self-reverse, and self destruct more than any other ratchet I have ever used. I don't know how Cman expects to sell these to guys...

Re: Guess our Snap-On kid is doing well.

If you want to live in this country you need to immigrate legally, pay taxes, and speak English. If you are not willing to do those things you are not welcome hear as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Craftsman Heavy-Duty Set Closeout (3/4" Drive)

Now all you need to add to this set is a couple pipes that fit the handle of the breaker bar well. I would suggest a 2 footer and a 4 footer.

Re: Air impact not putting out full ft lbs?
