While these two new Snap-on tools are meant for very specific applications, they seemed interesting enough to bring to your attention. File these into the “in case you ever need ’em” part of your memory.
Williams Scaffold Ratchet
The new Williams scaffold ratchet features a 1/2″ drive end with a pinned 7/8″ 6pt socket, and a bronze hammer head. On the opposite end of the handle is a pry bar. The ratchet has 36-tooth gearing for a 10° swing arc, and the socket features Williams’ Supertorque opening that can exert higher torque without damaging fasteners.
A tool tether attachment point is also build into the handle.
You can call 877-740-1900, visit Snap-on Industrial, or contact your Snap-on Industrial sales rep for more info.
Press materials suggest the new scaffold wrench was released in May of this year, but the scaffold tool looks a lot like the already-available BS-63B tool ($100 via Amazon). We’re waiting to hear back if this is the same tool, or a slight revision.
Snap-on Utility Transformer Access Tool
The new Snap-on utility transformer access tool (K3477) is designed for reaching into pad-mounted transformers – the kind that are often used in electric power delivery systems – for installation and removal applications.
- Ergonomic soft-grip handle
- Sealed head, which helps to prevent contamination
- Reversible ratchet mechanism
- Comes with 3/4″ 6pt socket and a 51/64″ penta-socket
- 2″ extensions provide extra clearance
