    Default Cope got the 1/4" CDI

    Couldn't help myself, the cute little bugger will fill the gap, it goes from 30-150 inch lbs. It has the same quality feel to it as the others.

    Good for you. Nearly thirty years ago, I bought that same wrench from my Snap On dealer. It had a 3/8" head, and I had him swap out fore 1/4". I don't know how many times I have adjusted the bands on a Torqueflite transmission using 72" #, but I have done my share. I just noticed the quick release, nice.


    I still have your 3/8" in my watch list. One day....

    The last tool I bought from the Snap On guy was the red handled 1/4 ratchet, about 8" long. Didn't ask the price before I said I wanted it...nearly died when I went to sign the ticket - $98.00! Too embarrassed to say no way!

    I know, but if you figure the years of service you are going to get from it and the pleasure of working with good tools it's not a bad deal.

    Tackit, I got out my 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" Snap On wrenches and assured them that although I was looking at a CDI 3/8", they weren't being replaced.

    Cope, what's the new 3/8 going to be for, different inch pounds?

    I don't think they can make CDI wrenches any better, maybe they could gold plate some for gifts or awards.

    I sure am glad you advised me to check out CDI torque wrenches, I couldn't be more satisfied. I'm going to keep em in the house because of the extreme differences in temp around here.

    The 3/8 is what I used to torque the welding table's legs to the floor, it just feels good in your hands... I'll keep an eye out, if I come across a good deal on a 3/8 I'll let you know.

    I have to remove the aluminum side covers on the Snapper's Zero Turn's gear boxes and check the grease in them this summer, it's been about three years since I had to replace gears and repack the transmissions with new grease......the grease dries out from the heat and cakes up then it stops lubricating/cooling the gears, the mighty 1/4" will finalize putting things back together.


    Stay cool buddy...

    Here's what a mower transmission looks like after the grease has dried out and caked and the damage it causes.
