We stock PB for the shop. PB, rust penetrant and Endura- because no one thing is right for everything.

I love PB Blaster! Every time that I get under my car, I want to empty a can and just watch the rust and grease melt and stain my driveway!

So, that is the actual packaging. I do not know where I got the idea that this was a set, although the site specified that it did 10,11...20mm, but no, you just have an oversized 20mm socket that also does 10mm.

This never would have fit on the nut on my exhaust manifold. We will see if I ever have use for it. Nobody else was impressed, so I doubt that anyone else wasted their money.

How about this?

$25.19: Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more

That is the best that I can find.

I wish I had bought that set, I bought this one and there was much rejoicing, but that one has twice as many pieces for 20% less! https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/p...9060?q=ptt0021

I had a stuck nut. I tried a few things before purchasing the bolt extractors, but I wish I had done this when it first rounded! It worked perfectly!

You can usually get a better deal than buying tools at the auto parts store, its just convenient. Lesson learned, its done let it go.

I use Knipex Cobra pliers. The teeth are sharp thus providing good grip.
