Extending your wrenches for more torque.

I have done this for years to get more leverage on a nut or bolt. It is not a great practice for the life of your wrenches but it works. Just do not bring that fact up when turning them in for lifetime warranty.

A couple years ago I picked up one of these. I think mine is the 15in one. Trust me I did not pay that much for them. It works good but the smooth surface does not do well with gloves on. I have the dip for tool handles somewhere and I will put a rubberized coating on it.

Ah, the interlocking wrenches trick. I've known about that for years, very, VERY useful trick to know.

nice trick i have used it myself a few times.

that tool in the second link is nice but kinda pricey for what it is.

When I need more torque it's usually when I run out of space in the engine area, not when I have plenty of room. Other than that, it seems useful.

That 2nd link though, seems like something I would never use.

lol I usually just find a length of pipe and slip it over the ratchet handle.
