    I got a new breaker bar....

    And instead of showing you it, I'll show you things I've broken with it already:




    Luckily it was nothing too valuable. Although it scares me that I was able to break an impact socket adapter without the use of power tools.

    It's such a challenge, actually.

    Finding XXXXXL shirts is also hard.

    That's the thing, I'm not even that big or strong. But that stupid impact socket adapter just snapped when I was trying to undo the bolts for the struts. I wasn't even using an impact socket, it was just a standard Kobalt one from my set.

    Oi vey, that blows. Do you know what grade steel the material was? Maybe Snap-on has something you could pick up
    ?

    You should hear the horror stories I've heard about breaking loose a crank nut on a Honda engine.The guy telling the story said he needed to brace the block against the wall with a fork-lift, and use a breaker bar with a 6' extension on it, and push that extension down with a freaking tractor bucket in order to bust it loose. The nut is torqued to something like 245ft/lbs.

    At least subaru isn't -that- retarded.

    You shouldn't be that surprised.. I have a habit of snapping standard sockets with just a 6" extension and a standard ratchet. Same goes for the other way around.. breaking the ratchet instead of the socket..

    Good thing I buy Life Time Warranty tools :-D Yay MAC

    I break rusted shit all the time on my car. I even crack impact sockets (harbor freight ones) . Lol. I have the same breaker bar that is use to pry and lift stuff. Pretty damn durable.
