MY NEW VISE-GRIPS ~ MY NEWEST FAVORITE TOOL
I was mowing my yard and the muffler on my lawn mower started smoking. It was really rusty. I tried to remove the muffler so I could take it to Lowe's by my house and get the exact same one.
I tried and tried to take that rusty muffler off and it wouldn't budge.
At Lowe's I found the replacement muffler and asked the guys how I could remove the old rusty one.
They said I needed vise-grips.
Some of them had a smaller width opening and this one is really large so it could fit my muffler. It can also be adjusted to fit something smaller. They were under 20.00.
I came home and used those vise-grips and could not believe how easy it was. You punch that round silver button to adjust the size and then just turn whatever you're trying to loosen.
I think this will be one of my favorite tools. I bet I can even open jars with them.
Maybe you already knew about vise grips.
But, I wanted to share this great find with you, just in case.
