A tool I didn't know I needed
« on: July 12, 2020, 11:52:01 AM »
The Crick It ratchet wrench tool thing, squeeze and go! I remember seeing these advertised on tv back in the mid 1980's when I was putting my first real tool box together as a High School Senior. I haven't seen or even thought of these things since then until I found one at an estate sale yesterday.

I picked up one in its box with all the sockets a few years ago.  It comes in handy a few times a year, but have to finish tightening with a wrench.

I could have used this when I changed spark plugs last week.  I was so impressed with this tool that when I saw this today I couldn't pass it up, especially for $5.  Like new condition once cleaned.

Metric and SAE up to 14mm/9/16".  I'm thinking of making a plug for it with a 3/8" drive.
