    Never hurts to bring up an older helpful thread.

    Grind the socket down all the way around, the whole socket, I did, hope you have a bench grinder, still plenty strong enough and worked great.

    Why on earth would you do this if you can buy one that works for less than $10 at Autozone?

    Maybe itís the enjoyment of solving a problem with what is at hand.

    I get that. I'd be up for the challenge if it was something that needed to be MacGyvered and I had the tools and the time but for something that can be had for less than the cost of a hamburger by driving ten minutes down the road I'd just buy it and be done with it.

    I realize the tone of my reply might be a bit off-putting. I didn't mean it in a demeaning way, just seems like a lot of effort for what it is.
