  1. Good episode man!
    The advise about wrenches was pretty spot on. Funny about the wrench your buddy returned to Sears. I find that most of the workers at Sears would not even know what a bent wrench is. HAHA

    I have a set of Mac combo wrenches at home. I bought them for work. They were ok, but not great. They are square in the body, so it is not friendly to the hands using them all day. They, like the craftsman, were more likely to round a bolt on the open end. Great on the box end, and the tolerances were pretty good.

    When I upgraded to the Flank drive, it was like a whole new world. They are the best hands down. Of course I would never buy them if I was not a pro mechanic I think my set was creeping up to $400 for a 10mm-19mm. That is about twice the cost of the Mac.

    Good show and great advise!
