    You must work on Honda's or Nissan's if you lost those two sockets. LOL
    Damn near everything on my wife's Altima is a 10mm or 14mm bolt.

    I don't do much work on NNBS trucks. So I don't know what size they are. My NBS is all 10mm, 13mm, or 15mm.

    If you live in the mid-west, Meijer carries a nice selection of their tools.
    Cheap milk and good tools all at one stop.

    Soooo glad I stepped in this section of the forum, my 8 year old Craftsman 1/2" torque wrench finally took a shit and you can't get them repaired. I've also noticed that when some of my Craftsman ratchets went out sears now only gives you refurb ones, not new ones anymore, What a bunch of cheap bastards! Not feeling Craftsman anymore.
    Was looking for a new torque wrench and will definitely be checking out this brand, want something a little better than Harbor.

    That stinks! No more Craftsman for me. The Craftsman we grew up with, the philosophy and service is no more. Tekton gets it, whoever is running Craftsman today does not.

    I went looking for my Craftsman 7/8" wrench tonight to swap O2 sensors and could not find it. Ordered up a Tekton 22mm wrench from Amazon Prime, will have it Thursday which would have been the earliest I could work on it again anyhow. Save me a trip to Home Depot where I probably would've spent too much!

    this is the first car ive worked on myself...i bought husky, HF, and some random stanley tools, tools from autozone....the tekton set i bought after outlasted all of them and are more reliable. no slipping on semi stripped bolts noiether and grips tight on the rusty ones. im a big fan. cant go wrong with them IMO.
