We fire up some hydraulic testers to see if 6 point or 12 point wrenches are best.

Gentlemen's welcome back to the shop today a treat, especially we answer the age-old question: what's con-fuddled mechanical mystics for generations, six point or twelve granted, the 12 point is obviously better. 12 is more than six: that's just science, but i don't actually know and a fella down in the comments asked me to do this. I thought to myself: well my upload button's the same as yours. Why don't you do it, but getting back to aristotle teachers, jobs hard to fill your fill the vessel full of seeds, it's to stoke a fire.

I think teachers a lot of times get that beat out of them, especially now, with more and more online teachery happening. There's less and less inspiration of t. Do you remember a great teacher from school? Was it the one that filled your head full of the most factoids? No, it was the one. What inspired you to actually go out and try something on your own.

You know we're all born with the innate gift of bumble. Somehow somewhere it gets beat out of us. I've changed the bolt to a smaller size. 5.

16. 24. Millimeter same same only different. I don't know how the that works, but i got some spare parts.

I think happy tap tap, never the right tool for the job, but always time to do it right. The second time i kind of fabricable on something up. This is for a three carter bolt. I got five eights mine, 15 16 across the flat 24 for you continental types, i'm going to change a few things around fab recall we'll list, not the other thing holy, not even close.

Nobody saw nothing. Allow me to just do the walk of shame. No ow. This uh skidmore vilhelm, torque tester for testing impact guns and fasteners on big jobs and so forth.

I got this at the government auction for a song money come out of the beer fund, so i didn't need to talk to the budget troll at all, but baby sugar, honey, darling, think of the money we're making on empties. Now what this is is a hydraulic cylinder you put your bolt through and then you clamp it down that squeezes. The hydraulic fluid comes up on the gauge. Tells you how hard it's squeezing.

So you know if your impact gun is suitable for the task or if your bolt is suitable for the task, just a kind of confirmation. I don't know that ought to do and we'll get an inner pack cylinder on there and then push till. We can't push. No more, i haven't even got into the meat of her more in the flowers and red wine stage, and you can already see why 12 point is vastly superior to the sixth point and why it's far easier to purchase their ubiquitous 12 point.

The six point, a little bit more specialty, have a harder time finding them, because you don't get nearly as many bites see that. So that's not going to work for us at that angulation. It doesn't work for us at that angulation. Whereas the 12 point you got.

Half as many again as bites, it's just easier. You see that perfect by the jesus yeah, i'm too old for all this industrial stuff, product placement being what it is. What we're using is a inner pack pump. This is a hydraulic pump manual and it's got the quick couplers here, just with a check ball a check ball in there, you seat the two check balls together and it opens it up.

These invariably get right, full of schmoo and the seals up and so forth, but for the four times a year you got to use it well worth the price of admission. Why use an enter pack cylinder and not a bottle jack? Well, much like the our fearful leader, thrust and turtle. This works in any orientation. So that's how that's going to work! It occurs to me.

I might as well tighten this by hand before i get to work in the hydraulics back about a quarter millennial ago. I set to working in yukon had the summer off from school and not knowing my ass from my elbow, nor whether it was bored, reamed or punched gon na be a gold miner on the summer off. For some reason, i must have hit the foreman in the right spot or he needed a grade stake or somebody who had taken some surveying. Well, i gradestaked in the summer my 18th birthday up in the yukon in a gold mine.

It used to be well before the clipboard warriors get into any minus the fun time, because it's the wild west, you just you just get it done partner that was fantastic, glorious and money boy. How do you just work as much as you wanted? Every breakfast? A banquet every paycheck a fortune. I work a couple extra hours in the eve on the crusher when the crusher was down uh help. You know just kind of nip around and do this and that, while the foreman one day we had to tighten the bolts every night on the cone crusher it'd loosen off, i don't think that was an old noremberg nor norberg.

Anyway. He passes me two two inch wrenches to tighten these things and i pass one back to him and i says uh there's only there's no nut on this. I only need one wrench and he grabs them. Both puts them like this and it tells me to get back to work, so this is a little trick here.

It's called double wrenching! That's how you get things german tight, like a german virgin, good and tight word to the wise for the maxillofacial surgeons in the crowd. This is also how you get summer teeth. Some are here: some are there, let's move away from the danger zone a little bit? I think we're bottomed out on either we're bottomed out on the hydraulic mechanism of the skidmore ville home or the bolt is yielding plastically. It's we're at its yield point, and now it's just stretching until it breaks.

Oh no and then these are hard to assemble when they're under pressure, probably not the safest thing to do. I don't see prudence, the safety goat in her open hoof shoes. I must be in the coffee room having a piece of birthday cake. It's just it's like it just doesn't.

We got ourselves a typical snatch, 23 situation, don't know whether to or wind my watch. Luckily i am a man who takes britches security, serious belt and suspenders. I got two pumps, so i don't have to take that pump off and blast. You know it's just not not the best, but what happens in the sanctity of my marital bedroom is my own affair.

Like i tell the wife, it's quite frequent that i'm shy just the one for a 69. here in the frozen hole of hoth i'll gladly take a 68.! That's when you trudeau me and i'll, owe you one, oh my god, this! What a pain in my ass, like they say in french, throw the horse over the fence, some hey, even with the 12 point, it just yeah. I guess well what what do we do nowadays when something doesn't work, throw your hands up, give up and go play a video game thanks for watching keep your dick in a vice. I had to sit in the stank about this in my office.

An old adage. Come up give me a lever, long enough and a place to stand, and i will move the earth. Of course. The odd verse of that is true, give me a hole in the earth upon which to sit, and i will lever out this nugget instead of turning the wrench we're going to turn the bolt my cocked a little dude to do ain't got the tool he can't Buy a tool for to do the job you got ta make the tool for to do the job.

Behold, a cockford ollie model 69 torque struck domatic she's a beaut clark. Ah, my first love: hey, babushka, no hard feelings. It's only because she's younger and prettier faster too we got to make a hang bedang. I snagged a crop of 4140 we're going to thread that 5 8.

That way, we'll put the bolt in and twist her right off cleaning two you! I went in there with a maintenance sap plug top we're going to get as many treads as we can. I got a bottoming tap now. Bottoming top just has less of a taper on the bottom, so it makes the threads pretty much all the way to the bottom of the blind hole. We'll watch that gauge see where it slips get three clicks of the ratchet out of here.

I don't know about you, but my spider sense been tingling, so long it clean off. What we're doing is we're yielding the bolt, so the head of the bolt is just going to come flying off of there clang and so forth. We're going to cut it there. We can see exactly what's happening.

I just wanted to confirm this is still turning. This isn't turning we're yielding the bolt. The six point has not slipped the weak you're, always going to find the bottleneck and by strengthening one component, you just find the next weakest component. The next weakest component is the bolt not the six point, so we'll go ahead and replace this bolt and use the 12 point.

I had a proto 15 16 in 12 point, but i must have got up and walked out the gate in somebody's tool. Bag sleazy come sleazy, go instead, favorite wrench in the whole world, the fap off old school made in canada. You can't even yeah. You can't even dream about something like that.

Nowadays, it would appear to my trained eye. That's the same same only different, we're yielding that bolt. Look at the pressure come up we're far past the torque that that bolt will yield it's gone past its maximum strength, and now it's just weakening as the cross-sectional area diminishes. That is the bolt stretches out.

Look at the wild of that wrench and that's an old-school wrench too. Not one of these fancy. Spline drive side hill, gouger styles, yeah, we're just yielding that there you have it to devolve into technicalities. The heat of the meat is directly proportional to the mass of the ass and the angle of the dangle.

Ergo makes no never mind at all whether it's 12 point or six point on a counter. You're not gon na slip on the box end. What you're gon na do is split. The fastener, clean half and two you're gon na go to the next weakest bottleneck and the next weakest bottleneck is the fastener itself.

So all things being equal, would you rather have 30 degrees of swing in the difference or 15 degrees a swing in the difference? Well, that is why, just about every box and wrench out, there is 12 point, because it's not going to slip thanks for watching keep your dick in a vice.

    you obviously dont work with nasty bags of scrap cars that have rusty bolt heads, the 12 point is pretty useless in that case just saying haha.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Moore - Tech Café says:

    What about a 12 point socket, on a 12 point bolt head??? Hmmmm……. Some older Chrysler vehicles have 12 point flywheel bolts. With a proper socket you can really put some torque on those puppies. 🙂

    I've been using impact sockets wrong this whole time!

    I like six points when I am using them on a breed of nut that is different from the breed of wrench (metric vs SAE). Also, when I'm using the wrong size on a similar breed nut.

    Best wrench is the Sask Nut Fucker. Makes everything a circle!

    Omg at the point you said "bumblefuckery", it came to me Mr Munden… my shop/ffa/horticulture teacher fits this bill… my tool box has mostly 12 point however i have a few select 6 point wrenches for specific jobs that require a better bite!

    Am I the only one that stopped breathing when the tap got hung up?

    Got a glass of whiskey to watch something risky. Was waiting for that wrench to eff off into low orbit and take down a Starlink satellite when it was resting on the portapower.

    Just gonna leave this here.. Deputy Czar of Canada just basically siezed bank accounts. Private company monies.. transactions.. all to stop those illegal truckers. FINTRACC.. or something like that. Report or loose ur license for business.. good job Canada.. 👏

    When I'm hanging by one arm off the side of some industrial machine, I love that I have a 12 point wrench in my free hand so I can get it on the fastener the most expedient way possible. I seldom come up against torque limits – just limits of time and accessibility.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tree Carcass Mangler says:

    My lot in life seems to be to deal with rusted, worn out equipment, over and over again. Invariably I have to try a couple wrenches for proper fit, which cranks the corners of both the fastener and the wrench. Therefore my go-to wrenches & sockets are my 6 pt. I have 12pt when I need them for position or small arc.
    With a 72 tooth ratchet, the need for 12 pt sockets is small, though I have them somewhere. Someday I'll encounter 12pt fasteners but it hasn't happened yet.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars summitlt says:

    6 point wrenches are weird. One of those things you never need until it's the only thing that'll work. That's a shop tool. Only to be notched into a flare nut wrench by someone else.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott J. says:

    Ain't not joke that double wrenching creates summer teeth. I have a metal plate in my cheek, jaw and a fancy set of front chompers from double wrenching! Feeling like cousin Eddie, luckily not pissing my pants when I fire up the microwave!

    1 – The head of the bolt is a lot stronger than the threads. But when bangin' on a wrench trying to loose a stuck bolt, I've shattered a box end. And just like your royal blue cylinder there, I buy myself only the best. All that rust and galvanic corrosion provides some extra strength. For this test to be true, you gotta weld the fastener head to a plate and then keep going with the stress test until you've rounded the head. Then we'll really know if the wrench is stronger than the fastener.
    2 – Both of these wrenches are under-engineered. For shame. You think manufacturers are made of money? The material on them is clearly way too thick in the sense of a racecar that makes it 10 feet past the finish line without the engine exploding left too much on the table and should've been pushed harder. One would suspect that a 6-point wrench could be thinner/lighter/slimmer/whatever than the gourmet 12 star avocado wrench all the millenials are bangin' off their nuts these days.

    True enough on nice clean bolts. I have better luck with 6 points on my New England Toyota…

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Litke says:

    I’m no expert but my Snap-on guy says I need 6 and 12 point SAE and Metric wrenches, chrome sockets and impact sockets
