I know, I know. How low tech is a lugwrench. In this day of battery powered impact guns, who needs a lugwrench? Well, I do. Cut off one of those sloppy cast on sockets and weld on a cheap impact socket from the flea market. That will fix it.

I have one of those. I absorbed one with a car I bought that had a cracked 3/4" socket. Cut it off and welded a cheap thin wall socket to it that I had in a pile of "spare" sockets. Works great and cost about a nickel.

Pro tip: Make sure you center it well and line it up straight so it spins nicely.

If I were to do it again, I'd use my unibit to drill a small countersink into the back side of the socket to center and align the socket and shaft.

Normally right hand threads. You have to turn it over for left hand threads.
