I have only used a socket on it once and all I was doing was taking the interior of my car apart. Works good for anything small where there is tons of screws. Defiantly worth this amount of money in my opinion.
Hey, congrats on being one of the apparently VERY few who really do get the point of this kind of tool!
It seems pretty obvious to me that those who are ripping this tool over its lack of torque have never actually USED a socket wrench in any kind of real-world situation (by which I mean, on your back, reaching up under and around the engine in your car, where, having broken the !$#%#$% free with your socket wrench, you now spend five minutes skinning your knuckles and straining every muscle in your arm, wrist, shoulder, and back, as you work to ratchet it all the way out ONE CLICK AT A TIME).
That's why I bought one now -- to save what's left of my knuckles. I won't mind breaking a bolt free by hand -- probably with a *bigger* wrench -- and then holding THIS tool over it and letting the motor unwind it, instead of busting up my muscles, joints, and knuckleskin.
What? It only turns at [howevermany] RPM? So? BFD! It'll still be faster than MY one-click-at-a-time back/forth ratchetwork, and did I mention my knuckles? And muscles, joints, spine, etc?
