Re: SO 3/8 MG325 sticky torue knob?

I don't think I can twist my knob very easily but it flips from forward to reverse pretty easy. I just leave it and my MG725 on full power and use the trigger to limit torque

Re: Auto drain for air compressor

Our compressor has something similar to the HF piece, but it was made by the compressor MFR. It runs dozens of times daily and I've never seen anyone drain the tank nor us have any water issues.

Re: jh williams compared to Blue-point, and other imports?

I bought a set of williams 3/8" impact sockets 2-3 years ago. The square drive is now beat out of all the common one and they wont stay on my impact without falling off.

Re: China wrench fail

I find it funny that the OP is dead set on saving money by using Chinese tools. But has the most overpriced tractor that money can buy, a John Deere.

Re: Cordless Impact Driver. Do you use ear protection?

My m12 is nothing compared to my MG725. But I only wear ear protection when using air hammer for extended period of time.

Re: Back Feeding With A Generator

Re: Oil Filter Sockets

I wish people would torque the aluminum filter cap on 3.6 GM engines. I get tired of having to use my impact or air hammer to get them off.

Re: Which ball joint press should I buy for a Ford F150?
