I think I fixed it!
After I made the last video on this tool, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I was really puzzled.
It CAN do it! On the right car…
Surprisingly this car (2002 Oldsmobile Aurora) had a very low torque spec spindle nut. I think it was ~134ft/lbs. It was taking forever but it DID it. Eventually though I gave it a rest and finished with a breaker bar. While it was CAPABLE, it was really slow and shaking like crazy!
The Dremel VRT1-1/5 is the archetypal Father’s Day present. It’s exactly the sort of thing an unsuspecting child or spouse would see and think, “Hey, Dad has a shop vac. He sands wood. I bet that’s a big mess. This would make things a lot easier for him! He’ll love it!”
Kids, spouses, take my advice. Dad will not love this. I don’t know if Dad will be able to feign loving it.
I picked this up at Lowe’s for 9$. It looks like they are clearancing them out, though I don’t know if that is because pinewood derby season is over (under?) or if it’s because they are no longer going to carry this thing.
This is a quick demonstration of using the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 3/8″ Impact (2454-20) to remove lugnuts on a passenger car. This car’s lugnuts were previously torqued to 95 Ft/lbs.
Consider this a teaser for a longer video I’m working on to demonstrate the use of the M12 FUEL 3/8″ impact on some more suspension type work. I’m still working out the details but I plan to answer two important questions: How much torque does the M12 FUEL 3/8″ impact really provide? Does that torque change based on the use of an XC battery?
This is a slightly infortainstructional video on how to remove the detent/catch from the US General toolboxes sold at Harbor Freight. I’ve been told this fix actually works for several other brand toolboxes as well. It’d be worth taking one of your drawers out and looking if your tool box drawers seem to stick when pulling them out / pushing them in.
Well maybe they should be more specific in their marketing. The package doesn’t say ANYTHING about BRAKES.
A quick look at the Nupla Strike-Pro STPN16. I show it in action (off-screen) and then give an example of a secondary use for this tool besides beating on stuff…
