Best On The Car Brake Flaring Tool From Eastwood
EricTheCarGuy


Published on Apr 27, 2016
Eastwood on the car flare tool: $39.99: http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-on-c...

I've been a fan of the vice mounted Eastwood brake flaring tool for some time. However, it doesn't work on the car. Eastwood has addressed this by coming up with a new tool that you can use on the car!

As you'll see in the video, there really was no other tool that was going to work for this job on my Acura Vigor. Now I have a proper double union flare repair on my brake line as a result. I'll let the video speak for itself on the rest.

Snap-on 3/8 CT761 vs DeWalt 3/8 DCF883
Cody the Car Guy


Published on Apr 1, 2016
This is a head to head comparison and the torque wrench is calibrated and dead on accurate.
Snap-on ct761 goes for right around 400.00
DeWalt dcf883 is 105.00 bare tool. You can get 3 DeWalt 20v tools for 305.00 which is the DeWalt 1/4 impact and Drill with 2 batteries and well you'll have to see how the head to head turns out.

Professional Technicians tool set Snap On Tool box over 54k invested
Brian Mann


Uploaded on Sep 12, 2011
artic silver Snap On krl1023A with bulk storage end cabinet full of tools for all types of automobile repair and maintenance. I have been wrenching for 16 years and decided to take a video of my tools for insurance purposes and then decided to share because people ask how many tools do I have. I personally think that Snap On makes the best tool boxes out there, I have seen a lot of other peoples Matco , Cornwell and Craftsman boxes have problems after a few years of service..

Snap On tools cost serious money
RANS87IROCZ


Uploaded on Oct 18, 2011
just a video about Snap On tools, and their prices. they are good tools, but IDK, anymore I like to save money rather then spend money. I work hard for my tools. but some things are just out of line, come on, really does it cost Snap On 700+ to produce a good quality torx set for me, And really how much better are they? I break them all in time, doesn't matter.

A look through my toolbox and cart, snap on epiq with 3 lockers. Tool polishers and perfectionists beware, no cleaning or preparation was done prior to filming. This is as is when I unlocked it in the morning. I stay pretty busy, so yup, the floor is a little dirty right now, some cores are on the floor and some tools still on the car I am working on.

review 1: Dewalt DCF899 cordless impact wrench removing suspension bolts
singlecams


Published on Jul 7, 2015
Review 1: Dewalt DCF899 XR 20V max 1/2" drive cordless impact wrench (with hog ring) removing rusty suspension bolts , axle nuts , shock fork bolts and crossmembers bolts. The battery in this video was the DCB205 5.0AH max xr.

Video of the DCF899HB removing crank pulley bolts
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsGXO...

There is the model DCF899p2 that is with the pin detent , The one I bought DCF899HB is the "Hog Ring". There is a explaination of the 2 here :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RmhB...

The Dewalt vs other top of the line cordless impacts
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUNXe...

It is very powerful , the motor and control seems really smooth. It took off everything except whatever was seized in rubber bushings. It's a lot of power for just removing wheel nuts but if you work on a lot of rusted cars and trucks this is what you would want.

There are some things I noticed, it is easy to bump the speed selector on the bottom of the grip, more than once I found it in position 2. Also It is easy to bump the forward reverse switch , my hand size is small and more than once I bumped the switch into opposite direction. That does happen with new tools you are not familiar with but it seemed like it was easy to do. It didn't use up any battery especially ripping off those axle nuts.

Even though in my other video I showed it was almost 1" shorter than another brand impact, it didn't seem to be an advantage as much as I thought it would. Most likely because they are both very big give or take 1 " didn't seem to me to make a big difference(for automotive)

Never had a tool with an LED light , it is a great feature and helpful for sure.

I believe this tool is known as the DCF899HN in europe.

KNIPEX Tool Review -EricTheCarGuy

8" Long Nose Pliers $22.24: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/knipex-261...

10" Cutter $34.13: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/knipex-740...

8" Mini Bolt Cutter $48.21: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/knipex-710...

7&1/4" Pliers Wrench $45.80: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/knipex-860...

10" Water Pump Pliers $28.39: http://www.jbtoolsales.com/knipex-870...

KNIPEX Website: http://www.knipex-tools.com

KNIPEX sent me a few of their products to review. I actually took about a month to use these tools before I recorded the review. In that time I really got to know these products. In my opinion, they're quality made, useful tools. If you're in the market for a good set of pliers or cutters, I'd check out what KNIPEX has to offer.

One non-pro's experience.....................

Snap-on Tools Warranty
davidgpo


Published on Mar 26, 2016
Wanted to relate my experience with Snap-on's customer service.
Their website mentions that broken tools have to be returned to them. They cheerfully agreed to replace my broken socket at no cost. Website says you need proof of purchase, they did not ask me for any receipt nor proof of purchase. They told not to return the broken socket too!

You can find Snap-on's Terms and Conditions of Sale at:
https://www1.snapon.com/display/terms...
Their email address is:
ncccsupport@snapon.com
Or call them at:
877-762-7664

I have no relations with Snap-on. I just wanted to relay my experience with my warranty claim.
