I have a few hex screws that i would like to remove. I bought a bit
for my drill at home depot and lost it on the way home. I remembered
that i had an old socket wrench set. Could someone tell me how this
works? I see at the 'head' of the rachet a turning figure, but don't
know its purpose. I assume they work on the same principle of clock
wise and counter clock wise...turning it counter clock wise had no
effect...what is the purpose of that 'turning lever' on the head? I
manipulated it to see if i get any effect, especially counter clock
wise, but there was no friction. Yes, at least i know that i have the
proper size, cause i felt the tension tightening it..
Righty tighty, lefty loosey.
Words to live by.

That's because in Europe their sex is all metric and ours
is *standard* and just doesn't fit their openings. Ever
try it? You turn and turn the sockets but they just skip
without grabbing. It's a good way to strip your nuts if
you ask me.
As a mechanic I once had a woman as an assistant, when ever she used a
wrench to loosen or tighten a nut she would sing...RIGHTY
$15.00 per hour....equal rights.....
