Evolv tools has put a new twist on speeder wrenches. In its standard configuration you can twist the handle to turn the socket — but you can also pull the handle out to convert this ratchet into a high-speed cranking machine.
The wrench probably won’t handle most of the extreme tightening or loosening jobs, but it’ll handle the repetitive tasks with ease. The ratchet’s operation allows you to work in areas with a limited degree of sweep, which can be a problem for ordinary ratchets.
Sold at Sears, Evolv tools come with a lifetime warranty as long as you have the receipt. Hopefully this’ll come out in the Craftsman line as well.
Street pricing starts at about $30.
