Pardon me: but I have been using ones like those since I was a kid, And Eisenhower was President.

And they were an older set then too.

But yes I have also slipped when using pliers and a screwdriver and punched myself right in the nose too.

How about sitting up under a car replacing the rear main seal, torquing the main bolts down and the torq wrench slips and headed straight toward your jaw. That smarts.LOL

I would be looking for the spring washer tool and the wheel cylinder hone that were also used. A guy that had one of them, usually had the other two as well.

I was 19 and gave myself a black eye when a wrench slipped that way.

For two weeks my short little mom went around telling everyone that I "gave her sass" and she did that.

Love it, your Mom had to be special with a wonderful humor like that.

After doing drum brakes with pliers and then discovering brake spring pliers, it was like a revelation. Made the job so much easier.
