Anyone ever see a ratchet type device for running nuts down a long bolt, where the exposed threads past the nut?
Here's the issue. I've got bolts of varying lengths that need to be secured by a nut. Some of the bolts have as little as 1" of thread protruding past the nut, some bolts have several inches of threads exposed past the the nut. Currently I'm running the nuts down by hand to remove the slack, then use a ratchet wrench (think box end wrench where the box ratchets) to draw them down tight. I'd like to either find a socket that can accept up to 6" OR a cordless drill driven ratchet wrench as described above.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, as right now I'm running an average of 30 to 40 bolts at a time, several times a week, a power actuated device would considerably cut labor and time.:)
