    Ratchet Wrench Guide: Types of Wrenches, Uses and Features
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Feb 5, 2017
    Below are some of our suggestions on what to look at for a good set of ratchet wrenches for a DIY Mechanic.
    GearWrench 20-Piece Ratcheting Wrench Set, SAE and Metric http://amzn.to/2jVmAbK
    DeWalt DWMT72169 Reversible Ratcheting Wrench Set (10 Piece) http://amzn.to/2kVGWC1
    TEKTON WRN53190 Ratcheting Combination Wrench Set http://amzn.to/2jXDYPB

    What Type of Ratchet Wrench? - Ratchet wrenches are available in a variety of styles for a variety of applications. Like all the other tools in your tool box, they fit a specific need and in many ways solve problems. Ratchet wrenches are used in similar ways to a socket and ratchet, but in many ways a ratchet wrench can be much more useful. They fit into smaller areas and allow a much better line of sight to what is happening around the fastener.
    Ratchet wrenches are made in many different styles and they all seem to have a place, in fact many mechanics will have multiple types of ratchet wrenches. so if you are in the market, don't look for the cheapest set on the market, look at the features. when we were shopping we thought the swivel head types would be a bit awkward to use but we were proven completely wrong and now mostly use swivel head models.

    While the price of the models will differ, most of the cheaper models will be a straight ratchet wrench. There are fewer moving parts and they cost less to make. The next highest price will be the swivel head and further on up the reversible ratchet wrench. note there are tiers of quality and warranty in each type so pricing will overlap.

    Ratchet Wrench Uses

    Tightens / loosens nuts and bolts.
    Metric and standard sizes.
    Ratchet action on one end moves freely in one direction and engages the fastener in the other direction to tighten or loosen without removing the tool.
    Some have pivoting ratchet ends for use in tight spaces.
    Where to Start?

    If you have never purchased or do not have ratchet wrenches in your tool box, look for a specific area that you would need these wrenches. In many cases, people might not have stubby wrenches or they might not have a swivel type wrench to get into tight areas. Try to fill that niche with this purpose.

    Most will start out with the simple standard or metric set of swivel heads as they are moderately priced and wok in many situations. Stubby ratchet wrenches are also popular as a first purchase because they are made for small and tight areas. We normally would not recommend that someones first purchase of a ratchet wrench set be reversible because of the extra cost. The reversible ratchet wrenches absolutely rock, but the cost is normally double of the standard or swivel head. That means you get half the tools for the amount spent.

    The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth But Not Snap On
    j young



    Published on Feb 6, 2017
    In this video i do a Q & A like i do so many times. However, a subscriber asked me a question. His goes by Colt. Well Colt here is the reason why i have to go to the doctor every morning. I'm not proud of this addiction but it is very much a part of my life and past. Everyone has a skeleton in their closet, some are just worse than others. Im glad i caught mine when i did and didnt totally ruin my life. While this video was loading, I sent the guys of the big 6 a group message and told them about this video and asked them not to judge. The junkie and i talked and discussed the issue and it feels good to have this off my chest. I have won the battle, now i have to win the war. Please stay with me and dont unsubscribe. This is the first time in my life that i have ever been associated with anything illegal. And if you are a addict then reach out to me via email and we can talk about it. I may not can help you fix it but i can give you a piece of my ear. Thanks, Jyoung

    Cornwell Tuesday with Buddy Holly JK lol
    Justin Dow



    Published on Feb 7, 2017
    This Cornwell Tuesday I picked up my Free Household generator that was part of the promo deal upon purchasing my tool box. I also received my Metric 1/2 Deep 6 point Sockets which came on a New version of stick rail that Cornwell has switched to. I picked up an oil filter wrench for the Chevy and Asked Jeff how his dad was. Don't worry I told him Y'all send out your prayers to him and his family while his dad is fighting stage 4 Cancer. Hit home plate as that is how my Grandmother passed. Jeff is a good man to try and take on so much all going on at once. I very much appreciate him for stopping by even though I know if he could afford to he would still be at the hospital with his dad. Thanks everyone and hope you all got your flu shots. That time of year and all.

    Cheers! ( holding a bottle of water Today)

    These will NOT be sold with the Snap On Logo. The Snap On logo is a registered trademark and selling it is illegal. I'm very sorry!

    What tools you will need to work on your Japanese motorcycle

    A video on the tools & sizes you will need to get started working on your Japanese motorcycle. I don't cover sparkplug sockets in here because of the very many different types and sizes required today. Find out what particular size you need and purchase that.

    Tool Shopping Tip: Buy Impact Rated 3/4" Sockets
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Feb 11, 2017
    Price the Impact rated Tekton 3/4" sockets on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2kscNxe
    Warranty GONE! - The saying "Do as I say, not as I do" applies to this article. A long time ago I was in need of a 3/4" socket set to complete an axle repair on my 1991 Chevy truck. Rather than spend the extra money on impact rated sockets, the money was saved, actually wasted, and normal sockets were purchased. These sockets worked well in their intended use as a cheap set of 3/4" sockets. The ratchet sucked, but the teeth held under load.

    Any time you work with large fasteners, there will be a time when an impact wrench was needed and there was a handy adapter in my tool box to go from 1/2" drive to 3/4". That was the end of the cheap set of 3/4" sockets they slowly were tore up in all areas by my 1/2" drive impact wrench.

    The need for good sockets that were larger became more apparent and there were some choices to make. At that time, the decision was made to move forward on impact sockets alone. There did not seem to be a great choice out there for a 3/4" ratchet that was affordable. So the use of my cheap ratchet continued until I broke the teeth and tore back a layer of skin on my hand. At that time, here was a problem to solve and a significant need for a good 3/4" ratchet.

    In looking around, Tekton became the brand that was going to be able to supply a solid, reliable ratchet, accessories and also compliment my current Tekton 3/4" drive sockets. Tekton offers a kit that gives you a ratchet, breaker bar, extensions and a lot of sockets. The good news is the price of this full impact ready kit is very close to the same price as the junk I purchased many years ago and Tekton has a lifetime warranty on these tools that will not be denied for severe use.

    Take our advise and at least look at the price.

    Buy Once & Save

    Our point in the YouTube video and in this article is to save you some money. If you go with Tekton or another brand, buy impact rated sockets for larger fasteners. At some point, you will need an impact wrench and they will tear up a cheap non-impact rated socket, destroying your warranty and leaving you stuck with a bolt that will not come off.
