ST, add to that the motorcycle owners Ive dealt with that possessed a 1/2" ratchet only, 2 extensions, and a 1/2" to 3/8" adapter, followed by a 3/8" to 1/4" adapter, and 1/2", 3/8" and 1/2" sockets. Can you say.."Stripped engine oil drain plug threads", or "stripped spark plug threads"? I sure can...and did. No power tools involved in those cases.
The best...or worst, depending on your point of view was the owner of a Honda CBR 954 and a Yamaha R6 owner that left his Yamaha countershaft sprocket loose, yet stripped out a spark plug thread on his 954. Time-sert insert took care of the spark plug threads, and a thread file cleaned up the countershaft threads.
