3/4" or cutting your face open... 🤔
PPE, we all use it , always  :y ;D :D
never cut my face open while using power tools
have smacked myself a few times  when rusty nuts let go using a breaker bar in confined space  ;D

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

Thank you Nick ,On your advice i will purchase one , but 17,25 seems a nicer price  :y
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

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

Thanks for the information Nick W  :y
I only just got the windy gun, not tried it
compressor is wolf air 50L ,8 bar
if windy gun will undo wishbones etc then good enough for what i paid
I do need to invest in a decent long breaker bar
I have a snap on one about 2 foot long but I extend it  :-[ with tube
the extending wheel brace I snapped off the !/2" square  :(

I've had a compressor for a while ,about the same size as aldi item
I love just being able to pump up a tyre in seconds rather than spending 5 mins watching a crappy cig lighter pump dance about the floor screaming .
It also gives the ability to spray paint, shutlz ,raptor,chain oil, fence stain
Just picked up a windy gun from lidl for 20 in a blow moulded case ,with sockets etc .
I think aldi have one for 15  :o ok it may not last it's 3 year warranty period ,but if it removes a few nuts that have been done stupid tight by a trained professional wheel fitter or the likes, 15 or 20 is peanuts 
battery tools have come along way , i'm still glad i have a compressor

You get the same thing here in Spain. Everybody is on their mobile whilst driving. Quite frightening as they come round a corner in the middle of the road. What do people find to talk about?
Sorting out the claim for the crash they had last week  :-\

Bet the Zaf will still be running there when the others have "timed out" been nicked ;D

FTFY. ;D
:D ;D
I thought there was no crime in TB land and Omegas where "worthless" anyway  :-\

is there not still such a thing as a motor fuse? ie it allows a shed load of amps for the initial start up of the motor but will blow if the motor starts to pull a high current in use
most big motors have start capacitors ,or starter relays etc ,HRC fuse links are outdated and used on domestic portable appliances/ stuff

fuses will take double the rating for so long before blowing ,some will happily glow away for half an hour before calling time

I could find a informative video if anyone is interested  ;D

I suspect many OOFers still have wylex rewirable fuses in t'lectric cupboard  :-X
It's a bugger when they blow in the dark and your wife has run out of candles.

Nahh, you just stick a handy screwdriver/knife/fork between the prongs and shove it in, then worry about fixing it when the screwdriver/knife/fork blows . :y
Fixed that for you  ;)

personally ,I feel safer with my MK 21 way multi RCD ,RCBO, MCB board looking after such matters , electric is expensive, don't like the idea of it leaking all over the place  :P

not only sexist , the description "man size" should have been picked up on long ago, the average man is 5 feet 8 inches  :-\
those tissues are perhaps 12 inches at best  :y

When my Nigerian investment  pays out,

Think of the poor little children.....  :'(
If the children are poor, they should get jobs
I'm now tempted to start all 3 of my cars and leave them running overnight....
Bet the Zaf will still be running when the others have "timed out" ;D
