Play the “Tool Knowledge Challenge” handyman quiz game – Vol.2

Alright, today on Repairs101 � back by popular
demand � it�s the second edition of the Tool Knowledge Challenge! Alright, I�ll start off with this one � not
because it�s hard to figure out what it is � because I think it�s really cool. I got it at a lawn sale for a buck with the
stone on it and everything. If you know what these are then you know what
this is. I�ve tried just about every filter wrench
I�ve ever come across and this old strap wrench beats them all. Telling you to have a look at my �Grout
Renewal� video� Telling you to have a look at my �Grout Renewal� video should
be hint enough to get this one, even if you haven�t seen it yet.

These are three eights inch square drives. They�re used mainly on flare nuts, like
this one, on this flared brake line. If you find some of these in your Granddad�s
shed � hold on to them. He probably picked them up because he had
a loose axe handle or hammer handle. OK so the top one is digital and it doesn�t
count so pretend you can�t see it and just notice that the other ones all share the same
scale developed by Pierre Vernier for precise measurements accurate to one – one hundredth
of a millimetre and one – one thousandth of an inch. This just looks like an ordinary tri-corner
hammer until you get a close look at it and see that the face pivots. So it will always hit its target square without
risk of damaging glass. If you�ve ever worked on a machine and struggled
to remove hoses after they�ve been on there for a while, you�ll really want to get some
of these.


Now you wouldn�t be wrong if you referred
to this as a pilot because that�s what the drill bit is there for. But the drill arbor itself is a means of attaching
a heavy duty hole-saw. People like to call these things �buttons�
and �fittings� but they�re actually called �anvils� and you can see how they�re
used in one of my favourite videos �Brake Line Double Flares�. This transfer pump is inexpensive and efficient
and it makes a lot of otherwise difficult jobs� easy. Alright, thanks for watching and don�t forget
to subscribe!.
