    You want to have the least amount of angle as possible. That’s where the extension comes into play. Figure out how to position yourself for the least angle.

    No. It looks like 40 degree is max. They’d probably break if at 90. The non impact rated ones do.

    Sounds like you need to start cruising the pawn shops and start building up your tool collection. Lol!
    I’ve scored some great quality brands that way. You just gotta hit them at the right times. Good used tools don’t stay for sale very long.

    Torch em off and just replace the hardware if you need to put them back on.

    If you dont have torches, welding shop should knock them off in short order.

    Torch the nut, bolts are cheap compared to all the specific tools to get in and save the bolt/nut

    The tools may come in handy. But, your right about torching it, I may pick one up.

    Impact wrench is great but you can't beat a good breaker bar sometimes. And a good set of open end/box end wrenches.
