Although I had done quite a few thread restorations in the past, they had mostly been internal thread repairs and I'd somehow never seen one of these tools before.
I’m going to come right out with it; this is easily one of my favourite tools.
I originally got given these as a gift and have since got loads of use out of them. If you’re working in one of those awkward, tight spaces that you can’t get a ratchet onto it can be really tedious having to unto bolts with a spanner.
OK so I spend quite a bit of time in the garage and use quite a lot of tools. When I’m thinking about buying tools I’m never sure whether or not to buy something decent or just get a budget equivalent to get the job done.
