Please don't try this at home.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Should at least put the ratchet down a bit more in the hole for safety sake!

Thirty years ago or so I worked for Sears and replaced quite a few bent and broken wrenches. Generally it is the ratchet that goes. That handle fits really nice inside a pipe. I have a 1/2 inch breaker bar that has a 1/2 in opening in the end for inserting extension(s). If nothing else works isn't that what hammers are for? Vern

I think that if you change the socket to a 9/16” it just might work.

I was thinking about a different socket when I post the pic. :lol:
