You know, I’ve just realized that my tool kit needs some upgrading. I noticed yesterday that I didn’t have a hammer, and today I find myself coveting the Black & Decker Automatic Wrench. What’s so automatic about it, you might ask? Well, plug in two AAA batteries (included) and, at the touch of a button, the wrench goes and unscrews bolts for you.
Okay, not exactly . At the push of a button, the wrench automatically detects the size of bolt you’re trying to adjust and clamps down on it, allowing up to 220 ft-lbs of torque. Which is better than the 1ft-lbs of torque my teeth can provide. So that’s good.
It’s available online for around $30. You’ll never loosen bolts the same way again. I guarantee.
