    Brick trowels?! Relevance?? A brick trowel is awfully far down the list of tools I'd consider needing to be very strong. A butter knife or putty knife might work as a substitute in a pinch. A ¾" drive socket bar on the other hand would likely need to withstand many hundreds of foot pounds of torque.

      No, I wasn't refering to yours specifically.
      OK, but I do admit it is near the bounds of the principles of this site. Nonetheless if you look at the topic I posted you may find some interest there even if only the nature of the forests which cover much of NZ.

        The axe is actually pretty nice, wait for the last part to see that. (they DO skip a bunch of the process)

          Crikey, 3 pages of useless arguments about heat treatment and survivability in industrial environment and nobody bothered to think of the obvious point

          Whos delusional enough to think that these are meant for lifetime use in an industrial environment?

          Jesus guys, theyre cheap wrenches, odds are theyre going to live most of their lives in the boot of someones car next to the useless scissor jack. They dont need to be heat treated, and for the few dollars a pop theyre going to be sold for they arent going to be. Who cares

              If you don't think a brick trowel needs to be strong, whatever else you are, you are obviously not a bricklayer.

                            Sadly, most Craftsman tools are no longer forged in USA. Mine were, they have the "=V=" marking. From the 60's. They say "Forged in USA"
                            At work they have a set of J.H. Williams up to 2-1/2". I have a craftsman 3/4 drive socket set up to that size, made in the 1980's. Still going strong. made in USA. Cost me a weeks pay back then.

                              But thats a 600mm wrench. Can't be USA made, surely? It won't fit any of your inch sized fasteners.
