CW = clockwise
CCW = counter-clockwise

Husky is a good brand name that dates back many years.I have a few old
Husky wrenches here.I didn't know Husky is still in business and I
didn't know they are being made in Taiwan.

Ray, I would have guessed you rotate your own tires, since you
change your own cars' oil.
I do know that both Sears and Walmart offer /free/ /lifetime/
tire balancing and rotation after you pay for your first, initial
balancing and rotation. The cost at the two stores is between
$30 and $45, but then, forever after, your balancing and rotations
are totally free for that set of tires. The tires don't even have
to come from Sears or Walmart.
Is that the reason you let Sears rotate your cars' tires? Do you
ever do it yourself?

My local Target store doesn't carry a lot of
motor oil, but it does have some. What surprised
me was all the 5w-30 Mobil 1 quarts were API SL,
the old standard. The only API SM they had for
Mobil 1 was 10w-30.
An unsuspecting consumer would easily pick up the
old stuff. It was priced the same as the SM, $6
