From Yoopersup;

I was just wondering how many Electricans still use these or have ever seen them. Years back we all carried them.

That looks like a handy item. If I still worked with the tools I would definitely want one.
Does it fit todays fittings???
Looks like it's made by T&B??

Never saw a live one, only in pictures. Didn't somebody make an offset one too?
Speaking of locknut tools, there is a picture of Channellock's newest tool, the locknut plier, in Feb. '06 Electrical Contractor magazine (page 70). It claims to go from 1/2 up to 1-1/2 inch.

Now that's one of the most useful klein tool that I have seen. They have thought of everything. I guess I just haven't arived yet as I don't have one of those.
That probably is the key that I need to get into the "Choir Practice Bar." When one asks, "Where are you going?" The answer is " To choir practice."

I usually just put the nut on and turn the connector with a crescent wrench, you have to be careful though, its easy to break the connector if you go too far.

none the less I wouldn't mind having one.

Anybody know what premier tool charges for these things? It's not shown anywhere on their website and I don't want to get buried in spam by asking them...
