I am an industrial mechanic, I do everything from electrical to welding and most things in between. The company I work for has some pretty old equipment literally made in the 1950s to FANUC robots and Laser sorting.
What I really suck at is Plumbing I can't Sweat pipe to save my life and just don't like plumbing.
My wife and I recently bought a new kitchen faucet I tried and tried to get the plastic retention nuts that hold down the faucet off. Could not do it, the tight spot between the sink basin and the wall was too tight, trying to get around the pipes hoses I could not loosen them damn plastic nuts. Tried everything from channel locks at an angle to a basin wrench couldn't do it, wasn't able to apply enough torque.
Was at that the point I was going to disconnect my drains and pull the whole Basin out just to get these damn nuts off. Then I went to Home Depot and found the Rigid EZ change basin tool. Best $23 ever spent, well thought out and does anything you need to change faucets. Only thing it's missing is a light.
From start to finish about 10 minutes.
Figured some of you might be interested.

I have a version (not Rigid) from about 15 years ago. Best $20 or so bucks spent on a single tool in a long time and is a great plumbing tool if you can get it into the space you are working in. Still hasn’t fully replaced my basin wrench, but it’s a great tool to have when you need it and will do so many things!
