    I've had issues with a Napa brand wrench and greatNeck from the zone



    it seems nearly a 1/4" (what MM is that?) of play in these 2 wrenches

    You can likely pick up those sockets on ebay. they come in different sizes, and angles if you search long enough. Took me a while to find just what i needed.

    Great concept. Hopefully yhe jack is removable to be used on other stands. If not then it would be very impractical.

    Perhaps it would go a long ways for somebody in an apartment dwelling with a multi-floor walkup with no garage.
    It would seem challenging to transport carry some big hunky floor jack into the building

    I think most in that situation wouldn't be doing their own car repairs anyways.

    Perhaps they might need to get their vehicle up high enough to spray undercoating underneath?
    Well ya just never know these days!

    It does look like a much sturdier base than say a scissor jack that is in my old corollas trunk!
    I've never had to use the bottle jack in my truck thank goodness
    Also I need to find the maximum height for that jack and if you can safely raise a truck whilst on an incline with it for more headroom underneath in the back

    Thats insane for a floor jack. I bought a vintage 3 ton floor jack at a tool sale for $50 that was missing a wheel that i was able to replace...been working perfect for years.

    which one of these dremel tools would be best suited for tight hard-to-get-at area surface rust grinding/removal
    and also to polish some weathered engine compartment parts
