    Something to add to your tool box

    I like to use T-handles in place of ratchets for work on engines, and removing/replacing fairings, tanks, etc. on bikes. They tend to be easier and quicker to use. Last year I came across a handy little T-handle set with a ball bearing handle and the most needed sockets you will need on a bike. It is one of my favorite and most used tools. The problem is that everyone who uses it likes it so much, I keep getting offers to sell it. I am now on my third set... and this one is not for sale.

    If you are looking for a very nice addition to your tools, I highly recommend the T-handle set from PitPosse.com. You will need to add a touch of Locktite to the billet roller handle, but at USD $44.95 it is a great addition to any bike tool set.

    Re: Something to add to your tool box

    For under $45, I would not expect the sockets to be top of the line tools (likely made in Asia like most tools these days), but they are chrome vanadium, and the allens and regular sockets hold up nicely, and actually fit the correct hardware very well.

    Like I posted above, everyone that has used the set comments on it. The length and weight of this handle really is very nice in use - as is the padded grip. And my other T-handles rarely get used these days.

    If you have never used T-handles, I highly recommend trying a set, and this set is a really good bargain IMHO.

    Sorry, I am a tool whore.
    For those just getting into doing their own work, this set is a great place to start.
    For the married (long term partered for Harley), repeat after me: "Really honey, just think of all the money these tools will save us in the long run".



    Next time I will make a list of Snap-On tools and part numbers to really get your CC miles built up.

    Re: Something to add to your tool box

    We do not in any manner merge or commingle our funds, so there is no explanation needed for anything other than new bikes. And then we have to go through the "only motorcycles are allowed in the garage" talk again.

    Even I can't justify Snap-On for the limited amount of things I do myself. But $45 was a done deal, they look kinda fun....

    You can get just the T-handle for $22.95 if you're like me & already have every conceivable socket & bit with the exception of Whitless.

    1/8" drive? What do you use it for man? I work with some pretty small stuff and don't have one of those. One of my favorite ratchets is a 1/4" drive snap-on ratchet body with 3/8" drive internals, comes in handy in tight spots.

    Used to have a Fluke scope and duty cycle, stolen. Never replaced it as I have bench-top scopes available to me (and frankly I rarely use them anyway).

    Yep, nice handle I will have to snag one. I have a set of SAE handles with the socket made onto them, I like this one better though.
