Gotta disagree with you there, I use my 6 pts over the 12's any day of the week. Snapped the bolt many a-time, but never split or damage the socket or nut.

This one:

I mean, who designed the ball joint anyway. That nut is the stupidest thing I've ever ever seen. The dremel is usually the removal tool for the nut. The above tool does work for installation.

Red Beard,

Used the ball joint socket tool. Works for me. Just need a 3/4" impact, 1/2 to 3/4 adapter and push really hard to keep it seated.

Same here. Using a tool like the above, mine came off w/o damage.

Favorite tool... take a guess!!!

2nd favorite: torque wrench. Love that thing.

Most useless??? Just about any tool that isn't pro/commercial grade. They just suck, and the P-car is worth more than junk tools...

Ok, I use 6pt impact sockets but the rest I prefer to use 12pt. Just have had much better luck breaking fasteners loose with them.

Take a 6pt and a 12pt of the same size and compare how they fit. IMO just have a better chance of not rounding off a nut or bolt with the 12pt. Anyway that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Now..... where's that egg nog.....................

6pt usually fit fine if the fastener is not already munched up.....now sometimes SAE 6pt don't fit similar metric size fasteners.....

How about visegrips and pliers made of laminated sheet metal.... They really suck

Of course Husky tools are the ones that should be melted, but since they are made of inferior material, they are even worthless for melting!!!

Got some new craftsman ratcheting wrenches and they are pretty useful

All tools that come with furniture you have to assemble. Those pieces of scrap metal make Habor freight tools look like Snap-on or Hazet.......

you wouldn't belive the boxed wrench that came with Mike's airhockey table. It was stamped from some brass-alike metal with several sizes and would cut your hand so bad it was almost funny...

Those jar openers with the rubber strap and bright handles. Got some for my wife so she doesnt have to call me in from the garage. Now she can turn the lid, but she cant hold the jar.

Actually, when they are in my hands, composed of 10 thumbs? Pretty much ALL tools are worthless.
