Editor's Notes

November 06, 2019:

Jaw pullers are essential for many different tradesmen that deal with electric or combustion motors - these often employ pressed-on pulleys, gears, and bearings that require removal. They facilitate this process and save money by removing these components without damaging them.

The Gearwrench 3627 adds to this convenience by incorporating a ratcheting mechanism that makes it much easier to position the tool before tightening. Both the center hub and the jaws are very well made with forged and machined processes that make it quite the robust tool. The Posi Lock 104 is also very well made and improves on the traditional design by building in a handle and a cage that keeps the jaws from flopping around.

Removing pressed-on parts can be dangerous if the load is suddenly released. Users should always wear safety glasses when using jaw pullers.
