    Have you tried Vampliers?

    I just checked their website and there's no mention of any screws you shouldn't use them on. If I were you I think I'd email them and see what happens. They appear to be a pretty good outfit.

    Have you tried Vampliers?

    I'll keep that in mind. I normally use them for round head screws. I rarely have to deal with stripped drywall screws.

    New joke

    That's a really profound joke right there. I like it a lot.

    Salesman gave me a set of these to try.

    I like that you called them by their real name.

    Funny how that used to mean they were crap

    They're not cheap, but they're in the same general ballpark as Kleins, and these are at the very least as good as Klein. I believe they're actually made better than Klein or Channellock. I've been using mine almost daily for a month now, and they do work as described. They really get a grip.

    Tractor Heat House

    I got to run a stout 1456 with a Hiniker 1300 on it back in the seventies. Pretty good old cab. Looking back, it was probably better overall than the red cab on Dad's '75 1066.

    cold cut saws?

    So basically you just let it down and it goes right through? That's pretty impressive to me.

    I bought a pair of these for my oldest grandson (and now business partner) for Christmas last year. We often work together, and I borrowed his so often that he gave me a pair for my birthday last month. We're doing home repair work, and they'll take out stripped screws that Vise Grips even move. The jaws are unique as far as I can tell, and they really get a grip in the right direction to turn stripped screws. Thought some of you guys might find them useful. I'm addicted.

    I could appreciate that. What's the ballpark price on 'em?

    I've been out of the game too long to know what they're for. Are they just strain relief / better, cleaner grip for the hoses?

    Got the kraut fired up.

    8 bolt hubs on the front and wedge locks on the back. Nice.

    That's what we always called them, too.

    Rainey day job.

    Great. Nice to know you can be productive whenever you get a chance.
