Re: Stripped Chain Adjuster

Yeah I've been working on my own stuff and sometimes other peoples for awhile also. But I can count the number of times I've seen a "Pro" Craftsmen on my third hand. The only time I even bother to pick up a GW, is for the ratcheting end. Otherwise the loose fitting SIX POINT Craftsmen sockets get me by. But I'm wise enough to leave 20 year old rust belt stuff alone.

This reminds me, I have a cracked Craftsmen socket I need to get exchanged... but where? Don't think there are any Sears stores left are there?

nope. you're stuck with it lol. there's plenty of decent tools available. no one likes they're made in china etc but the truth is many of these tools have proven just as reliable as snap on or mac. lots of youtube videos to prove it. in fact I've seen some where a snap on ratchet fails and the harbor freight one doesn't. snap on also is notorious for not returning broken tools. but guys still buy them. we had a snap on battery charger at the bike shop that was almost new and the timer didn't work on it. the snap on rep wouldn't return it.

as for gearwrench wrenches. they're too soft. they do strip bolts with ease. not the closed end but the open end. husky makes a better wrench.

I'm in no way saying I'd run over harbor freight and buy a bunch of their tools. most of mine are from the 1990s. when craftsman made good tools. not all of them were great. but I have rarely stripped anything with them. the trick is knowing how to use your tools and picking the right one for the job. experience grasshoppers...
