    I feel your pain. We use Swagelok fittings on most of the stuff we build at work, and I've got PLENTY of time on a 1 1/16" wrench. :doah:

    dood its a light saber~!~!!!! cool

    when ever there on sale i am poor, and every other time well i am not that rich! 100 bucks for a wrench set is a bit much, when i can still do it with a bit more work that is.

    next time ill dipp into the fundage and get a set

    I've had mine awhile, don't remember what they run.... I have short and long in standard.. I'll want metrics at some point, but my combos will get me by for the amount of metric I use..

    The refractometer is badarse... always wanted one, but got by testing antifreeze with the ball/float style... But now that I'm checking 50, 60 boats a year it's good to have...

    The REAL reason I wanted it was so I can check battery cells...

    yeah it sucks to have to drop your front shaft to run brake lines.

    but...
