Those snap on ratcheting screwdrivers are my favorite. I prefer the soft grip but the deal was right. There’s barely a bit of a grease stain on the handle, no other real signs of use. Still had the box!

You're going to like those pliers. Also check out the LN47ACF if you don't have them. They also came out with a smaller version, I haven't seen them yet but they're high on my wish list.

I ordered this today on Amazon to go with my cable and Knipex hose clamp pliers. I think it will come in handy in some situations.

No, this particular pair of needle nose pliers was something I wanted, not offered anywhere else, and I went for it.
You mean the slip joint nose pliers? They're quite popular and often on backorder. Guys like them for their long handles and the slip joint for grabbing thicker objects.

Those are them, often referred to as slip joint long nose or slip joint needle nose. SO has a winner in them imo, and the smaller version looks good too.

Nice! I had no idea those (still) existed. They look like a replacement for the now-discontinued Channelock 558. I never understood why Channelock stopped making them....?

If you order the LN47ACF off of the Snap On website, they are almost $100 after shipping and taxes. I don't have access to a Snap On truck so I bought mine off of the website. Not sure they are worth that but I wanted to try them out and at the time Ebay was higher than that.

Yep, SnapOn's about-face on shipping charges has apparently allowed ebay sellers to jack prices accordingly. Now the best deal is to track down a truck unless the purchase exceeds their threshold for free shipping

This is a unique tool - haven’t found anyone else who makes an identical product.
These work great for accessing the T40 fasteners on some ZF 8HP pans.
