probably more interest in the manual  8) ones that have sprung up on ebay

My 2.6CD came with a manual box. I didn't like it.

Rumour has it the manual box for the Omega is lifted straight from a 1950's lorry. ::)

Local factors had an offer on for a 3/4" socket set - I can't remember how much but 60 comes to mind. I can barely lift it.....

I don't use it very often but I have found time and again that forcing a tool beyond it's limits results in breakages and often injury too  :( so I don't feel that I wasted my money.
60  sounds good ,but i don't think adding 3/4 sockets to my massive tool set would be viable when i own angle grinders and petrol disc cutters (my GO TO when a bolt is too big to shear off or undo  ;D)

Sealey AK7302 is good: about 30, 1/2" drive, 750mm long with a replaceable knuckle. Which I've just done on mine as I broke the square off trying to undo the Metro hubnut

I also have a Snap On 600mm 1/2" drive ratchet which is excellent as you would expect for over 200.
I don't use ratchets until the nut is cracked on anything m10 or above

About 20 years ago I was struggling with big nuts and bolts on rusty Land Rovers and Range Rovers. My 1/2" ratchet is banana shaped because I tried (and gave up) trying to undo the bolts holding a tow ball onto a drop plate.

Local factors had an offer on for a 3/4" socket set - I can't remember how much but 60 comes to mind. I can barely lift it.....

Took it home, slipped the correct socket + ratchet handle onto the ball joint bolt and....... the bolt sheared clean off.

I don't use it very often but I have found time and again that forcing a tool beyond it's limits results in breakages and often injury too  :( so I don't feel that I wasted my money.

Incidentally there is a chasm of difference between being a Samaritan and pandering to/ enabling those who can't be arsed to help themselves.

You really are some sort of Lady bits...

At no point did I suggest any behaviors from your first paragraph.

I deliberately ignored the references to these which you had alluded to in your earlier post as I couldn't place them in the context of the thread thereby dismissing them as an anti freedom rant.

Given your propensity for such ideologies, I would suggest, politely or otherwise, that you frequent a far less liberal forum... From a gulag.

Sealey AK7302 is good: about 30, 1/2" drive, 750mm long with a replaceable knuckle. Which I've just done on mine as I broke the square off trying to undo the Metro hubnut - the first time it's ever failed to undo anything, including the V6 crankbolt which had the breaker bar bow shaped before the bolt loosened.


I also have a Snap On 600mm 1/2" drive ratchet which is excellent as you would expect for over 200. I used it so much that it had to have the ratchet replaced. I have suggested Sealey's equivalent many times over an impact wrench
