Default WTBorrow Oil filter socket

Anyone have one I could borrow for a day or two? Just got a new filter and decided against buying the socket, which was stupid on my part. Ill gladly pay shipping.

Borrowed from FinishLine/Rosenthal

I always get mine off by hand, over tightening can cause leaks and the need for an oil filter socket.

seriously dude.....no need to tighten to the point where you can't take it off. finesse will save you a lot of grief.....and money on unnecessary tools.

There was a time when mine was too tight and the only way to get it off was to stick a screwdriver through it to get it off, talk about a frustrating lesson learned!!
