We show that Sacks' and Shoenfield's analogs of jump inversion fail for both tt- and wtt-reducibilities in a strong way. In particular we show that there is a Δ02 set B >tt ∅' such that there is no c.e. set A with A' ≡wtt B. We also show that there is a Σ02 set C >tt ∅' such that there is no Δ02 set D with D' ≡wtt C.
