Thanks Michael,
    I suspect yours is made better than the Harbor freight tool.  I think some of the less sturdy tools may not work with steel (versus aluminum) nuts, and may be limited to smaller size nuts.

i just sent you pix of mine, called Thread Setter.  I bought it at Grainger Supply, cost a little over $100.  its nice, nut i saw a twin knock off at Harbor Freight for 29 bucks.   so, i don't know if they are equal, i doubt it, but 300% better?  you can see mine in action on my website on the trunk latch adventure.
