Digital Wrench tells you when bolts are tight

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2009

Digital Wrench tells you when bolts are tightI don’t know about you but I don’t need a fancy digital wrench to tell me when bolts are tight. But if you do, then maybe it’s time you go digital with this wrench. This wrench will give you a mathematically precise torque reading.

Just be careful as the wrench “uses the distance from the leverage point to the bolt head to calculate torque, so moving your hand closer to the bolt head will throw off its reading.” How reliable. It can be yours for just $323. Digital is definitely the way to go.

Ratchet Allen KeysWhether you are building a ton of Ikea furniture or putting together a bike, the trusty old Allen wrench is a part of it. But the only thing that sucks about the little tools is that they don’t operate like a ratchet.Well, now you can have your Allen wrench and your ratchet all in one,

They’re available in both Metric and Imperial and come packed with 9 different sized keys from 1.5mm to 6mm. It features a clever design where the fold out cover becomes the handle and it can rotate a full 360°. Now this is a useful tool.

Hydrokinetic wrench uses the power of liquid

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2009

Hydrokinetic wrench uses the power of liquidThe Hydrokinetic Adjustable wrench lets you work with twenty three different sizes of bolts and nuts. The secret to it’s success with so many sizes lies in the wrench’s liquid core. To adjust the wrench, just open the valve, fit it around the nut or bolt and push the gripper on the opposite end.

This will compress the liquid which will push the gripper on the end. Once it is snug against the nut, close the valve and your wrench is locked in position. The head will let you get into even the tightest spaces and the design of the grip will help you turn damaged nuts and bolts.

Wrench tightens nuts by hand, literally

Wrench tightens nuts by hand, literally
Normally cranking your nuts by hand is frowned upon. I guess that’s no longer the case. Surprisingly, this tool was not designed for booty grabbing hijinx within automotive shops. I think. I’m really not sure why it was designed, but we love it. I’d be surprised if it worked as good as a regular wrench, but it’s a great way to add some comedy to your otherwise serious toolbox.

Everytime you adjust the fingers to fit your needs, it’s as if a little hand is holding two fingers up saying, “Do you love me this much?” and so forth. It’s all rather creepy, truth be told. I think it has to be used for evil. Yes, I think it must be made to pinch a woman’s butt at least once in it’s career.

Spyderco Byrdwrench multi-tool

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2008

Spyderco Byrdwrench multi-toolThe Spyderco Byrdwrench has an odd name. It’s not a wrench made by spiders for birds who spell their name with a Y like the British rock band. That would just be silly. What it is, is a multi-tool that’s a bit different from some other multi-tools. It sports a combination of one-hand open knife, slip-joint pliers, bit driver, and an adjustable crescent wrench.

It’s also got a rough punch file/hole-starter and a steel belt clip, and can be separated into two halves to reveal the four screwdriver bits inside. While I’m sure it’s convenient and it does have an interesting sort of industrial look, I’m not really sold on the idea that it’s somehow better then my trusty Leatherman multi-tool. The price is about the same at $77. If anyone has one, let me know how you like it.
