You asked for them, we got them back again.

Nick is here he's.

Our resident mercedes, benz technician.

Nick, we have the ratcheting box and combination wrenches from milwaukee tool.

Tell everybody what you said about them, milwaukee tools can not make a good wrench.

You heard it here going to tell us a little bit more about it right? After this message from our sponsor vcg construction.

You want to help out with the channel head on over to merch store.

You get hats.

Hoodies t-shirts link is in the description below why can't they make a good wrench? What kind of wrenches do you use on the daily tell us how you arrived at you don't like them, or you didn't like them? Or you only tell us about it who knows milwaukee tools for making hand tools.

No one goes around saying, oh, I got my new milwaukee wrench set right.

So what you're saying is you like the power tools when it comes to hand tools, though that wouldn't be the choice that you'd go for it wouldn't, be no.


What would you normally use? I have snap-on wrenches tell us about your snap-ons.

I bought a higher size set of wrenches.

I bought 19 to 24 millimeter in our field, my field it's.

What is the go-to craftsman wrench trying to do an alignment? It keeps slipping off the 17 or the 21.

we would go from that.

And then oh it's slipping off here, here's a snap on and it'll just dig into it.

It'll bite, it'll, break.

It loose.

It'll do anything you need it to do because of their technology on their open end of the wrench, what you thought receiving these initially was that these would be an experience that you had like craftsmen, yes.

So tell us a little bit how you used them on the daily.

What were you doing with these first these? I used for essentially any and everything eight millimeter came in real handy because on the front of our engines, they tend to leak oil.

They have e10s which happen to be eight millimeters too thin of an area to get a ratchet in.

So you gotta put a wrench in there.

It would come down fit nice and perfect.

And it would just grab onto the e10.

Would you would you use the the open end or would you use the ratcheting bike? I would use the open end to break it loose.

Okay, because you don't want to damage the ratcheting, okay, and then flip it over and loosen it the rest of the way.

So it did what you needed there.

It did what I needed.

There is a recoil.

We have that involves replacing things on steering rack.


So we have to take the racks down.

And that involves an 18.

Okay, you gotta reach up kind of blindly grab a nut and then break it loose like a squirrel put the 18 up there.

Folded the box end out of the way use the open end and grab the 18 and break it loose.

21 for suspension work use the 22 for suspension work.

So is there anywhere? These fell down, you didn't like them.

No compared to your snap.

When you like these, I have reached for these faster than I reach for my snap-on tommy, tell me why I'm confused the flex head ratcheting go on sometimes granted.

These are newer not abused for years.

Yes, but they're.

Not you see them flopping around too, no, I don't.

So if I need it to stay here to get a bolt it'll, stay there and get that bowl.

So your snap bones are ratcheting box then or no, yes, oh, they are but they're a little floppy.

They are.

I've used them quite a bit, but even some of the new ones I get tend to be a little bit looser.

And sometimes it's just not as thin as these also like the 17s, sometimes like the back of the brake calipers.

They will need to be a little bit thinner.


So they can actually fit in between.

So it doesn't, uh.

So what would you do in that case, grab a pair of vice grips? So in what instance would you like these to be thinner tell me so brake, calipers, the sliding calipers there's, the nut that the bolt threads into.

Yeah, you know, a lot of people know you can't normally fit a normal size ratchet and a wrench in there.

You need a lower profile.

A thinner one even they're, bigger sizes like the 2221.

These are pretty thin wrenches.

Okay for what, they are granted.

The head of the open end is a little bit thicker.

But the body of it itself is nice and thin is there anything that you'd like to see improved or are these perfect, in your opinion um these for everyday use.

And like just simple things are.

I have no gripes with them.

If they have a thinner end for an open end yeah that would be nice in some situations but you don't always need that that's very specific things that you need for you know back in the day when we were crumb bags when we needed a thinner wrench to fit specifics but we would just grind the head down we're going to do these no way we're grinding this head down, what's up everybody.

We have nick with us.

He's our resident mercedes-benz technician and he's been using this 3, 8, stubby impact.

Did an initial review.

But then we sent him off to use it.

Some more and a little bit more to a lot more.

And then a lot a lot a lot more and it's like a year later, or maybe two years later, it's back still been using it for the same things.

I did what two years ago you could see what he was using it for two years ago in that video there you liking it, loving it, is it doing everything? The same as we're doing two years ago? It is doing everything that I wanted to not going to be the most powerful thing.

It's, it's, a 3 8 stubby, not meant to take wheels off for anywhere.

You would use a 3 8 ratchet if that can fit use it by far.

My favorite thing, I have reviewed besides the flex any downfalls anything not operating.

I mean, you're, still within the five year, warranty or whatever it is on m12, is there anything it's? Not operating the way it was before? No? I've used it abused it.

It has kept going it's, not hesitated one bit.

Do you like the protective boot? Does it protect fenders and stuff? I do.


So besides this little clip, right here that needs to come off, but I keep forgetting, um like it's only like two years.

Yeah, it's.


I lay this on a car I'm, of course, gonna lay clip side up, but I'm, not worried about the paint because of this protective boot it's probably saved me a couple times from scratching the car.



Stuff thing looks great.

It looks brand new.

So if you're gonna buy the stubby make sure you get the boot or you're gonna get the boot from where you're working.

And if you like getting advice that save you from getting the boot, then smash the like button, it's free for you to do doesn't cost.

You dime.

You get like eight years of good luck.

Probably seven all right just seven years of good luck.

It doesn't cost you a dime.

Take that clip off save everybody for getting the food.

See you on the next one everybody you.
