That is a 1/2" drive impact 8mm. Where would one ever need that? 😝

Maximum Ugga duggas on an interior trim bolt. This might actually fix e36 glove box sag.

I used to use my pneumatics all the time. Now, most all of them have been replaced by electrics so they just sit there in the bottom of my roller like an old folks home.

Simple. That's a belt tensioner for a horse drawn buggy.

I have that exact sharpener and will never give it up.

My useless tool is probably an old filter wrench (strap type). Last time I used it I crushed the filter, made a mess. Never used it again. Sorry I canít get a pic - not at home for another week or so.

Easy out? Yeah right. Maybe if you're talking about the money they eased right out of my pocket. These things are totally worthless. Never have I had one work yet in any situation, ever.

Not even close. It's clearly part of the ratcheting anti-kickback mechanism for an automated hay baler. It just looks weird 'cause it's missing the forward coupling. Circa early 1900s.

LOL - I still have a TT 300ZX clutch alignment tool specific for that car.....which I sold 7 years ago. Every time I find it I start to toss it, and then put it back. It worked like magic for the 3 minutes I needed it 20 years ago though........... =)

Really? Mine have worked exactly like they were supposed to every single time. Don't get me wrong, I'm also very skeptical every single time, but they have always worked.

I’ve had the easy out work once or twice. The rest of the time it just shreds the fastener from the inside and I end up finishing the drill out with a real drill bit lol.

It's a 200 year old electric toothbrush for horses. You're missing a few parts but that's definitely what it is.
