Sex offenders can not be rehabilitated. It's in their wiring. They should not be released back into the general public. On the other hand they should not be warehoused either. I think they should be executed.....Spectre

When someone tries to kill you, it doesn't matter how they are doing it. You're in mortal danger, and it's time to try to kill them back.

Kill every last one of these goddamned animals. We need a president with balls. We need leadership. We should be carpet bombing these barbarians wherever we find them, and we should be looking for them 24/7. We have to unleash Hell upon them. They understand nothing but death, so death is what we should bring them, wholesale.... Para

The gun vice option drives the price to $114.78. The $34.99 is for the Fat Wrench only.

I love mine! Definitely worth picking one up if you don’t have one already.

I really gotta stop opening these threads. Each one has a new must-have that I never knew I needed. Smile

I got the wrench and the leveling kit.

I've had one for several years. I'm sure it's not super precise, but it does help prevent me from getting heavy handed with my screwdrivers. I use it for all my scope mounting work.

Got one from this thread. Friend has one and loved it.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Every day, the New York Times carries a motto in a box on its front page. "All the News That's Fit to Print," it says. It's been saying it for decades, day in and day out. I imagine most readers of the canonical sheet have long ceased to notice this bannered and flaunted symbol of its mental furniture. I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse. You may wish to choose a more rigorous mental workout but I credit this daily infusion of annoyance with extending my lifespan. -Christopher Hitchens

"At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats."
-PJ O'Rourke
“It is just as difficult and dangerous to try to free a people that wants to remain servile as it is to try to enslave a people that wants to remain free."
-Niccolo Machiavelli

I ordered one as well. Looks like a nice tool. Given the extremely reasonable price and how big a pain in the ass accurately calibrating torque wrenches is, I was surprised to find a calibration card enclosed with already tight tolerances considerably beaten!

You can get better wrenches for not a lot more money. Nothing wrong with the Fat Wrench as long as you know what you're getting. I almost pulled the trigger on it before settling for something better for not much more $.

What is great about these posts?

You find the great deal. Big Grin

What sucks about these posts?

People jumping on them and changing the pricing on Amazon. Mad

I used to work at a nuclear power house. They were very particular about torque wrenches. I have wondered about the Wheeler Fat Wrench. Could you point me to better wrench for not much more money? Thank you.
