Interested to see if these have real value. Looking forward to a review!

Is there a specific job you're doing that required that wrench?

Jess’s jeep (fucking jeeps) thermostats is bad and it only has 55k miles on it! Some of the bolts are very hard to reach so I hope this will help when it warms up a bit.

Last month finally got myself a 1/2” impact, a Ridgid 18v. Nothing fancy but makes removing lug nuts easy.

What kind of sockets do you guys use to remove the brake calipers & such where the impact won’t fit? One of these bendy sockets?

I guess the tite reach tool would work too. <Edit> scratch that, I’m too cheap to pay $200 for the 1/2” TiteReach. Will stick to manual wrenches & cursing.

I use this;

Craftsman 1/2" Universal Joint. I've had it for many years and it's never failed. I use it with a 1/2" drive 22mm impact socket and a 1/2" drive 6" impact extension. I have the type you pictured to use with hand tools but the spherical ball design is better for the heavier load of an impact wrench.

I agree with Tom. I’ve blown apart a few of the universal type swivels. I’ve had the same style, different brand 3/8” and 1/2” ball type swivel with no issues.

I have the Ridgid 18v 1/2” impact. It works well enough for most projects. Some tough nuts need a breaker bar to start with the impact to finish. If it’s the same generation tool as mine, it has 300 ft/lbs of torque. More than enough tightening power. I wish it had more breakaway power.

I have this cheap-a$$ wobble extension set. And it might be one of the most used tools in my garage!

edit: obviously not for use with an impact wrench

I use reg 3/8 drive ratchet and shallow impact socket. Otherwise I have 3/8 flex head breaker baror 3/8 IR 20V ratchet. Picked up a set of SK swivel 3/8 sockets 5 years ago they work great.

I’ve been eyeballing a set of Gearwrenches for a while. The price has been fluctuating from the high $120’s to the $160’s. I finally pulled the trigger today. $128.99 with Amazon Prime. They won’t be in stock till Friday. I should see them early next week.

This is them. Gearwrench 9602 metric 16 piece reversible ratcheting combination wrench set. It has 8mm-25mm except for 20mm and 23mm.

I use gear wrenches everyday at work (plumber). And I have them for the X. They're amazing.

I used them while helping Will pull apart his old X and rebuild his new one. But they were the extra long straight ones, that you have to flip to reverse. They were great to use, but a pain because they didn’t have the offset.

I thought the swiveling set was the way to go, until I got a 5 piece SAE set from Harbor Freight for work. I found that the swivel is less helpful than I would hope. And irritating at times. I get that in certain situations they are priceless. I imagine the swivel would get in my way more often than it would help. So I landed on these.

From memory, I have used 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24, 32, and 36 on the X.

The sizes below 8mm are mostly dash fasteners. A ratchet and socket would be just as easy to use. The 36mm was an aftermarket CV nut that I no longer have..
