    anode

    If that is the second best, what do they consider the best? Looks like the lug nut wrench for one of the foreign cars, possibly Porsche, that uses extremely high torque settings for their lug nuts. How much would you have to charge to each job to amortize a $500.00 investment that you do not use very often? I have removed so few anode rods, that I would have had to add $100.00 for each of them.

    Wow And For only $500

    Might be worth it to someone who spends a lot of time working cramped spaces. For this country boy I prefer my assortment of steel pipes. They will even break loose those frozen on lug nuts some tire jockey hammered on with his air gun. Price : $FREE................
