TOOL REVIEW

Mayhew Tools 6-pc Non-Turning
Pneumatic Tool Set
"These tools are a unique new approach to an
age-old tool," the reviewer says.
Technician Randy Kaiser of Rost Motor in
Manson, Iowa, has been using air hammer
chisels and cutters for years, but the Mayhew
6-pc Non-Turning Pneumatic Tool Set, No.
32200, "is the first [set] designed not to turn
when using them," he says.
For Kaiser, the non-turning design feature
of the tool set saved him time on jobs.
"The chisels and cutters stay lined up with
what you are trying to cut, instead of turning
and cutting into the wrong area," he says.
When the Mayhew tool set arrived, Kaiser
says it was packaged in a heavy duty roll
pouch. In the pouch, each tool has its own
slot to keep them all organized and separated,
but together in one place. Additionally, when

the tools are not in use, the pouch can be
rolled up and held shut with the Velcro strip.
The non-turning pneumatic tools were
put to good use cutting off rusted bolts and
removing bushings. While using the tools,
Kaiser notes they appear to be well made and
very durable.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

The Mayhew Tools 6-pc
Non-Turning Pneumatic
Tool Set, No. 32200, is
designed for cutting bolts,
breaking welds, scraping
off undercoating, and
cutting heads off bolts or
rivets. Featuring a .401
Parker Shank, each of the
tools also consists of four
grooves that lock into the
retaining balls of a quickrelease chuck to provide
back and forth motion
on the same plane while
the c-axis remains locked.
The tools include a cold
chisel, slotted panel cutter,
scraper, double-cut body
ripper, panel cutter, and
pipe cutoff.

TOOL REVIEW

Lisle 7-pc Offset Filter Wrench Set
This tool set hit the sweet spot for the reviewer, who was
impressed by its simple usability and convenient storage case.
When performing an oil change on a vehicle with a cartridge-style oil filter, a specialty
socket or wrench is required to remove the oil
filter cover and gain access to the filter itself.
When that cover is tucked away in an area
of the engine that is difficult to reach, however, the process becomes more challenging.
The Lisle 7-pc Offset Filter Wrench Set was
designed to eliminate that challenge.
"On certain cars, it's a lifesaver," says
Matt Fanslow, shop manager at Riverside
Automotive in Red Wing, Minnesota. "[The
Lisle Offset Filter Wrench Set] saves a tremendous amount of time."
Fanslow says the technicians at Riverside
were skeptical when they first received the
set, not knowing if they would find it useful.
But after performing oil changes on several
Mini Coopers, notorious for their difficult12

to-reach oil filter position, they were sold.
"We've got a shared toolbox the shop
owns, and all the stuff inside it is specialty
tools," Fanslow says. "This is in the top drawer because they use it a lot. We have other kits
that have a couple of the offset wrenches, but
the [Riverside technicians] grab [the Lisle set].
They're not grabbing the other ones."
The offset filter wrench set comes in a
blow molded case with a nice latch to hold it
closed, Fanslow notes, adding that both the
wrenches and the slots in the case are marked
with sizes so each one has a designated spot.
The outside of the case features a picture of
what the wrenches are used for, as well as a
list of vehicles they can be used on.
"It's little stuff like that that we probably take
for granted, but every little bit saves a little bit
of time and keeps things organized," he says.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

The Lisle 7-pc Offset Filter
Wrench Set, No. 40600, is
designed for use on oil and
fuel filter canisters when
replacing the element. The
set features a low profile,
six-point wrench with an
offset 3/8" square drive for
clearance in hard-to-reach
spaces. The size is laser
marked on each wrench
and the set comes in a blow
molded case for storage.
