Would you buy this?

Saw one of these on marketplace and I thought it was a joke made by someone who just figured out how to use a square broach but it's real. I've turned a few nuts and bolts and I can't recall a time this would have ever been useful

Re: Would you buy this?

I would buy a set of Crows feet before I would buy that.

They are helpful when needed.
But they are very seldom needed.

I use one at work to Mount vices close together on my CNC machine.

I bought the ICON set it is Nice.

SAE set: https://www.harborfreight.com/7-piec...g_q=crows+foot

Re: Would you buy this?

I rarely use my crow's foot wrenches. Would I ever use an adjustable crow's foot? Not likely. Would I pay $65 for an adjustable crow's foot? No way.

Yeah Buddy.

I was young when I learned this from some of my Mentors.

The Mac (Tool Guy) truck was the worst.

You buy $400 dollars' worth of tools that week.

You pay $20 dollars a week.

You pay tax on each payment.

Then you (Eyeball) buy another set at only $120.

So your total is $520.oo

Then next week it is $500.oo + tax and They have another tool you need.

Not to speak of the junk box that they keep.

Yep. Just remember though, it is consensual after the 1st step up on the truck

For sure.

I was lucky I had 2 or 3 tightwads I worked with that told me,
Don't buy anything that you can't pay cash for that day.

One guy was so Tight

He would wait till he got to work to use the bathroom.
that way he could use their toilet paper.

Then walking out to go home he would pickup gravel from the paved parking lot,
If he seen any.

I asked him what are you doing picking up the gravel?

He Said : I going to put it in my driveway when I get home.

That's tight right there.

Re: Would you buy this?

When you need one a crows foot wrench it's worth its weight in gold!

I used to work on a lot of big bore CAT engines and they have fasteners that the only way to remove them is with a crows foot wrench as no other wrench will fit it the available space. The adjustable version likely would not work because it's too big! So the answer is no.

I prefer the 12 point style which are useful as tubing wrenches too.
