Lefty loosey, Righty tighty... is an old saying.. So unscrew is Left, Counter Clockwise. I have had to us a blow torch on then to get them off! use some WD40 OR CRC let it soak in a bit, and give the nut a few good wacks with a hammer. Use a real long lever too is another way, a piece of pipe over the handle works, but be careful you don't snap anything.

For grinding stones:
  • ring test the stone

Is the right rear tire a left or right hand thread


Tyres are not threaded, I am guessing you mean the wheel nuts. All car nuts undo by turning them anti clockwise but some garages over tighten. Get a decent bar to undo it.

How do I remove the rear axle nut on a 2001 mazda MPV?


No, it would not be left hand threads. Just on super tight, probabvly torqued down to about 200 ft. lbs. Use a good stout breaker bar.

I am having trouble taking the old speed feeder head off the weed eater to replace it with a new one.


If you are trying to loosen the nut, the nuts are threaded to stay tight when running and may well be LEFT hand threaded, so you will need to turn to the right to loosen.

How do you tighten the nuts when changing the wheels on a 6 inch craftsman bench grinder. Thank you...


Clamp the shaft behind one wheel with 'Channelock' or 'Visegrip' pliers, then tighten both nuts. Check the new wheels for 'off-center' running by spinning them with your hand. They may fit the shaft tight enough that there is no centering adjustment--use a 'wheel dresser' (either a stone type or a multi-wheel type) to true up the wheel so that there is no radial wobble. Hope this helps!

How to stop shaft from turning to remove nut and replace wheel


If you put a wrench on the nut on the other end of the shaft, you have a 50/50 chance that the nut you want loose will come loose. If the wrong one comes loose, you can remove that nut completely (and the wheel) then take the nut with you to the store to buy another one. Then put two nuts back on and tighten them together as a jamb nut. Then try again. If the wrong nut still turns, you have to tighten the pair of nuts together tighter. good luck

How do I change a brush? I can't get the axle locked to get the nut off. Can you help me?


Remember if you are trying to change the left side it is a reverse thread nut. You would turn it clockwise to loosen. IF it is very tight, put a wrench on both sides. IF the right side comes loose, remove brush/grinding wheel, and re-install nut, with an extra nut locked to the first one, the put a wrench on both sides again.

Have tried everything, can't get one of the grinding wheels off.


On a bench grinder the wheels turn towards you. This means the grinding wheel on the right side, has a right and nut, and the left side has a left handed nut. If you're trying to remove the left side turn the nut counter-clockwise
