i am particularly hard on tools, i am known for braking either bolts, nuts or the tool but i have never broken a craftsman over the years.
this makes me wonder is the quality gone down or something? i am still on my original rachets from ahum '89 and i'd have a fit if i broke 1. i was breaking loose the bolts to the crank pulley on my old 302 and actaully turned it over in gear (stick) with a 1/2 in. driver, not once but like 4 times. after pretzeling a tbar with a cheater bar for leverage i learned to just get a impact wrench. dont be me wrong though i have grenaded lesser tools in about 30 seconds use. even the KD tools i have are toast and i only use them on small stuff, the rachet is [email protected]#$ completely and even the screw driver handle that came with it is toast.Originally posted by v4lu3s i am on my 3rd craftsman ratchet in 3 months right now,
That's a good ? . Who makes the best torque wrench?cyvic said:I'm planning on buying new tools. This will be my first and I want good working tools. What I'm suppose to look for? What are the worst and best from your past experience??
Good deal! Now I need the money . Thanks. My advice:Enano Siniestro said:Get one of the newer torque wreches with dual calibration (Metric & SAE), so whatever manual you get (JDM or else), you're covered. I have two, one for small stuff (10~80 pounds), and one for heavier stuff like flywheels (up to 250 pounds). If anyone here has ever worked on a VW flat four, the flywheel is torqued to 225 pounds, so it pays to have good torque wrenches.
