Hard to find wrench and socket size...

I went to 4 different tool shops today, and NOBODY had this size wrench/socket. Is it really that rare? 1 3/16th I may have to order from strap on and get raped.

Ditto, if you can deal w the lower quality you'd be ahead to just get the whole $40 HF set. I use mine as race drivers now LOL

I havent seen a wrench that size.

But sockets shouldn't be too hard to come by.

If you get desperate, you always have a torch/plasma, grinder, and some plate kicking around, right?

I thought Sears had it in 1/2" drive. If not I may have had to get it in 3/4" drive. I'll check where I got mine next time I'm there. NP231 drain plug?

Some of the HF cheapie sets had some odd ball sizes including the half moon and s wrenches. Take a look at there wrenches and sockets.

Did I miss the reason you can't use an adapter to step up to 3/4" drive? That's all I ever use when I need to use these sockets on my IR2131. Do the same thing to swap trailer balls all the time.

Are you SURE a 30mm socket won't work?

1-3/16 is a hair larger than 30 mm. It's off by six thousandths of an inch, actually.

And a 30mm socket can be found at any autozone for doing FWD CV's.

It would prob work, but i just wanted to have a nice standard set, instead of digging into my metric set for 1 socket...trying to keep stuff organized. ill just check out that 30mm at autozone.

I will confirm the HF 3/4" 8 part impact set includes the 1 3/16" socket. It is on sale for $30. They also have a 3/4" 28 part regular socket set that also has that size for $40. I will return with a $20 coupon so I can get the long frame jack that is on sale in the morning. I spend way too much $$ at that toy store.

Beater, do you think that long frame jack is worth a shit? I've been looking at it too.

This is the link to the one I was looking at in the store. Its on sale for $119 and I have a 15% off coupon. Damn I wish I had the 25% of coupon!!!

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=42820


They have a 5 ton and a 10 ton version and I suspect that one of those is what you were talking about.

I got a 1-3/16's 12-point in one of my Craftsman sets, 1/2" drive, so reason would belive that you should be able to get one *resonably* easy from Sears. Its not impact though.

Now to find a 1-5/16" in a 1/2" drive I had to go to on of my local tool supliers and I found it in a Proto. Good tool, but about $12 or so..... cheaper than any of the tool trucks though.....
