Hello. bonneyman. I must have been thinking of these . The 2 at top are Indestro Select 6470, the one at the very top is missing the cover, my mistake. The one at bottom is a 3250 Indestro Super. All 3 are 1/2" drive. Regards, Lou

Yes Lou, those are the Indestro open gears I've seen. I think the terms "Select" and "Super" are indicative of different eras of manufacture.
How is the handle feel when you apply alot of force? Doesn't seem to ergonomic.

Lou, they are bullet proof tools. Low tooth count as compared to other designs, but they will eat nails as far as toughness is concerned.
