    Hey, im trying to find that funny thing written about what tools are really used for.

    Like the one that says a torque wrench is a really expensive breaker bar, or that a hammer hunts out hte most expensive part near teh one you are trying to hit.

    Anyone know what im talking about? Or know where i can find it? It was pposted her, i just cant' find it rite now.

    thanks!

    My favorite has to be

    BREAKER BAR: A long tool for loosening and tightening nuts and bolts.
    May substitute for TORQUE WRENCH. When used to tighten nuts and bolts,
    the rule of thumb is "Tighten Until It Strips - Then Back It Off 1/4
    Turn".
