Favorite Filter wrench...

I just turned my cheapo filter wrench into a pretzel. I need one that works well and is heavy duty. Any favorites out there?
Mike.

I hope oil, because I need to find one that will just fit the filter

Go to a farm store, they sell them there. I just bought one over the weekend. It was like $4.25, and it's made by Pennzoil. You'll want the 4-4 3/8" size, a FL-1995 filter is 4.25".

I got one from NAPA that's pretty nice, has a joint in it so you can use it at any angle, nice rubber handle, and all steel.

I use this one -

2" to 4-1/4" Oil Filter Wrench

it works but puts small bite marks in it when you clamp it on the filter. I normally don't use a wrench to put the filter on, just use it to take it off so it doesn't bother me much and it's cheap-o.

I should clarify... I meant "joint" not "U-Joint." sorry.

It is pretty nice tho.... but it's made in china. The only one they had that was USA was a strap wrench, and apparently it was made with a gold handle because they wanted $60 for it.

I like the farm store idea...and the pliers look pretty good too.
I have had my fill of the constricting band style with the swivel handle.
Not afraid to pay the price (within reason of course) for a good tool that makes the job easier, and I can't break!

I use one of these for my oil filter, but most of the time I can spin it off with my hands, no stabbing needed except to drain it.
