.mov. ok 1 last time. different camera.

So I got some six sided sockets. This is the only one that fits. Nothing is snug like the pics from Scirocco. 14mm bolts have this much play too.

The tool junkie within sez "That Stahlwille wrench looks like a great tool! GottaHaveItGottaHaveItGottaHaveIt."

The pragmatist within sez "Breathtaking price, especially for the set. Gonna have to ruminate on that one..."

The Fastratch is a cool concept, if it works as well as advertised.

Just in case you need to one up your neighbor........

All I can say is "Wow"! If I still worked as a mechanic and had a need for something like this maybe I could buy into them, but I don't run into enough stubborn nuts and bolts to make it worth the price of admission. Now if someone wants to donate a set to me for T & E purposes I certainly wouldn't turn them down.

Having a assortment of common size wrenches and sockets is a way of life for me. I have collected lots of sets over the years and find some variance in
tools between brands and qualities of tools . A 10 mm nut or bolt may need any of the tools I have due to manufacturing tolerances, amount of polishing done to
the nut , or choming added to the nut.
When in doubt buy more..
Cant have to many tools

The only time you have too many tools is when you don't have anywhere to put them!

Also impact sockets are typically a tighter fit and work fine as regular sockets.
