Looks lIke a high-quality tool. The issue I had with it is that the large filter I have on my Mooney Acclaim doesnt provide enough room to fit the wrench under the accessories and over the top of the filter nut.

The wrench worked well and is good quality

Works fine, appears well made, used it on a Champion filter. Takes the guess work out and easily fits into the available space on an RV-4/IO-360. Not cheap but should provide years of useful service.

It worked great and gave me the confidence to know that I have the filter tighten to the right pressure. It was very easy to use and it will also work with Champion filters.
