Re: The Truck Tool Equivalents Thread 2.0 - Expanded with Part Numbers

Re: Ratcheting wrenches???

This is the best reason there is to have them, especially when you hit the point your hands cramp up after spending so much time resetting the wrench.

Re: Any experience with MAC wrenches?

Love the original Knuckle Savers, my favorite feeling wrenches besides my Williams SuperCombos. My hands really don't like overly thin wrench beams (that's why I sold my Snap-On set)
