Extend Another Tool

Recommended Posts

Extend Another Tool While using tools for other than their intended use is not advised knowing how to get the most out of a tool while using it properly is smart. Screwdrivers of course are used for turning screws but sometimes screws are in too tight or are in tight spaces. Whichever the case it can be hard to get a good grip on the handle. Some screwdrivers are designed with a square shank or a square portion of shank to which an end wrench can be applied. The extra torque provided by the wrench will often get you out of that tight spot. Anything free is worth what you pay for it This & $1.00 might get you a small Coffee Maynard aka/UCD

COULD'NT HAVE MADE IT IN MY YOUNGER "DIRT BIKE" DAYS WITHOUT THE OLD IMPACT DRIVER.THOSE PHILLIP HEAD BOLTS IN THE ALUMINUM BLOCKS AND SIDE-PLATES CAN BE TOUGH TO GET OUT. IF AN IMPACT DRIVER IS NOT AVA.,SOMETIMES TAPPING ON OR SOMEONE ELSE TAPPING ON YOUR SCREWDRIVER WITH A SHOP HAMMER WHILE YOU TURN IT WORKS.IF YOUR SCREWDRIVER IS NOT LONG ENOUGH TO REACH A PLACE, TRY USING A 1/4" SOCKET ON THE END OF A LONG EXTENSION(S)WITH RATCHET AND A SCREWDRIVER "BIT" PLACED IN YOUR SOCKET.IF THAT DON'T WORK, THROW IT, SPIT,CURSE,AND LET SOMEBODY ELSE DO IT. MAYNARD HAS A GOOD POINT WITH THE WRENCH------------ A ROUNDED ALLEN SET-SCREW CAN BE REMOVED THAT WAY TOO. TAP AND TURN--------TONY
