Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: Grainger.com is another good source for tools of this kind. We use stud pullers in our shop.

Its been years but Grainger only sold to bussiness. No over the counter sales to the public. Problem is most counter people don't know what one is. Mine is from sears (craftsman) As stated this is not a tool to buy on the cheap. A good one will cost about $25.00 or a little less. NAPA has them and if you want to get fancy so does Snap-On, MAC tools and the like. I prefer the one that goes around the stud with the pinch roller and you use a rachet with. Cheap way to do this is to put a nut on and all the way down then anouther nut and tighten boath nuts together and using the bottom nut with a wrench back the stud out. This will not usually work with ones that are really stuck. Of course if you don't care to use the stud again a good ole BIG pipe wrench (I have a 4 foot one) works. Studs that were really stuck I do not reuse. Bill
