I don't remember what size but it was a huge open end wrench for my ball hitch.

This arrived today.. 76 piece Craftman Tap and Die Set (metric and standard). This is a vintage set that I found on eBay. It doesn't look like it was ever used. There is one tap that's misssing, but I'll replace that with a Greenfield.





Craftsman started outsourcing their tap and die sets to China in 2009. The newer Chinese set are junk. This is a good ole "Made in the USA" set. It's getting harder and harder to find quality tools that are still made in the USA.

I bought a 6 piece SAE jumbo angle wrench set, a 6 piece SAE jumbo combination wrench set, and a 15 piece SAE service wrench set all from Harbor Freight. And about a week before that i bought a Lincoln Lubrication 18 volt cordless grease gun. Thats all i can think of right now as i almost buy a new tool every week since im a mechanic.
