    Over the past 45 years, I've built 3 custom homes in Alaska, a handful of garages, and done enough repairs and electrical work that I really couldn't keep tract of if I wanted to. I'm the guy who has 10+ socket sets in 1/2", 3/8", and 1/4". This is the source of my question this evening...

    Hi, I'm trying to replace my old 1" water pressure regulator valve but came across this problem. I need to remove this component from the old valve so that I can use it for the new valve. It looks like a threaded reducer with one side 1 3/4" MIP to 1 1/4" MIP. What tool can I use to unscrew...

    I found this drill for over half off. It looks like it has good reviews, but I figured asking people that know what they're talking about is the better bet. I recall hearing somewhere that Craftsman tools suck nowadays. Is DeWalt [still] a good brand? Thanks in advance for your help.
