I just used a 12 point 7/8 socket a little while ago to turn the square end of a small engine crankshaft with a drill for checking spark. I don't know why people say they don't like 12 point sockets; they always work good for me. However, if I'm gonn

I can't stand running my tires at full pressure,plus they wear out in the middle but leave tons of tread on the outsides. I run about 40psi in my ford and 24 in my Jeep. Any more and they ride terrible and wander on the hwy. My Ford still wears them

I've run into splined nuts on a u-joint flange recently. I was able to get them off with a 12 pt socket. I've also got a cheap, craftsmen splined multi-wrench which actually works better than I assumed it would. Great for a random nut or bolt that I

Got a volt meter? Disconnect all of the leads and compare each one with the ground (the box in your case). You will figure out which is the hot wire and put that one where it belongs (marked "line" on your GFCI).
