October 15, 2007
Just announced. As of this date, everyone who uses socket sets must
upgrade their set. This is required for all socket set brands
manufactured prior to October 15, 2007. This includes both SAE and
Metric sets. Without this upgrade, your sockets will no longer fit
nuts and bolts. It's easy to upgrade. You can download your upgrade
in minutes by going to: www.toolupgradecenter.com/sockets. You can
pay online with any major credit card. The cost is only $29.95 per
socket set, payable to "Tool Upgrade Center". Once the download is
complete, simply plug your socket set adaptor into any USB 2.0 port
and click ENTER. That's all there is to it. Your socket tools will
perform three to five times faster than before, will turn using your
computer and mouse, and will be compatible with all machines currently
manufactured. Your socket set will continue to work on older
machinery and your upgrade is downward compatible.
Once on our website, you can pre-upgrade your hammers if you choose to
do so now. All hammers will require an upgrade on November 1, 2007 or
they will no longer be compatible with any nails. Your upgrade will
make your hammer perform up to ten times faster, and will allow
automated hammering from your keyboard, using your up and down arrow
keys. Upgrading is easy, and you can download your upgrade in
minutes. Simply go to: www.toolupgradecenter.com/hammers. The cost
on November 1, 2007 will be $29.95 per hammer, but if you upgrade
prior to that date, and combine your upgrade with your socket set
upgrade, the cost is only $19.95 per hammer, a huge savings of $10.
* System Requirements - Online upgrades require Microsoft Windows
98se, ME, 2K, XP or Vista, a pentium III or higher with at least
256megs ram, 22gigs of hard drive space, CDrom, and a USB 2.0 port
with tool adaptor, and a registered copy of any version of Microsoft

Please forward this important message to all your friends and
neighbors. Our goal is to upgrade all socket sets and hammers by the
end of 2007.
are these the new ones made to fit the varying nut and bolt
sizes produced in china? the new product line, not exactly SAE
while also not exactly metric. actually their consistency
reflects no particular standard. adjustable sockets?
I'd not given any consideration to how china could manage
to mess up a nail.
I just bought some nails that are made in China and it said I MUST use
a metric hammer. Of course I never had one, so I had to go and spend
$30 for one. I complained a few months back when I had to purchase a
metric vice grips since the instruction manual that came with some
China made bolts claimed that my SAE vice grip would not clamp tightly
onto metric bolts. Of course the manual was written in chineese and I
had to spend $79.99 to have a language translator convert the manual
to english. If that was not bad enough, when I tried to fax the
chineese version of the manual to the translator, my fax machine would
not accept the new metric paper I had purchased and I had to go back
to the office supply and buy new paper. On the way to the store, I
ran out of gas and discovered that my obsolete gas can labelled in
gallons would not accept the nozzle at the gas pump which had been
changed to a metric nozzle. With gasoline all over the outside of my
gas can, my shoes, pants, and legs saturated, I found my skin burning
and called 911 on my cellphone. I received a recorded message that
stated "the telephone number 911 has been changed to a metric number,
please try again"...........
Does this have anything to do with the analog shutdown in 2009? Are you
saying that my analog wrenchs are no good? I have to upgrade to digital? I
just bought them! and no one told me! I know screwdrivers are digital (+
and -) but now wrenchs? When will the madness stop?
Wheres the government? DO I get any $40 voucher for a wrench converter? this
is so unacceptable. Somebody is going to hear about it.
Once I convert will I be able to get Hidef wrenchs? Do I have to buy any
special cables from the cable mafia in order to use my Hidef wrench?
Can someone provide a link to the FAQ page? Thanks for letting me rant.
Contrary to popular belief, analog wrenches will still work. However,
you will have to use special nuts and bolts imported from the
horsehead nebula. These will be reasonably priced, but the shipping
charges are really high.
There's the * ones too.
"But the emperor doesn't have any clothes on!".
You're supposed to as long as you don't have any monkey wrenches.
However, I hear president shrub is trying to do away with the voucher
program because it would be too helpful.
Hidef wrenches will work best with HDTI (High Definition Tool
Interface) cables. Buy cables that support HDUP (High Definition
