That’s an odd question. Different tools for different jobs. Sometimes it’s easier to maneuver the workpiece instead of the tool. But of course, you can do it whichever way you please with the tools you have available.
If you actually use those more than a few times a month, you’re going to realize how bad of an idea it is. They will rub off so fast, and become annoying so quickly, that you’ll just pick them off from frustration. I would,
I bought the pad levelers and hubstands second hand from a shop that was going out. I think the hubstands are $1300 new. The levelers are $900. The scales are $1100 new. Most of this stuff you can buy used of you take your
haha. i clocked out about 5 minutes after i started dousing all those tools with brake clean and wiping every single nook and cranny with rags. i actually keep my stuff very organized but it seems there’d always that one day a week where
Not a bad idea! Might have to wait until I am in the presence of the mystery tool again to make sure I have the number right.
I’ve watched about 4-5 of their videos today. If you have not seen them, I suggest checking them out. There is one for the making of an axe, a chisel, and a knife, as well as more detailed videos for the ax and knife.
I have this model. Coincidentally it started playing up last week. I found out when doing up 100nm flywheel bolts on an BMW R65. Hmmm, why isn’t it beeping, 100nm can not be any tighter… Thing is going wacko at anything on the higher
Love the stainless. A coworker has the wood top, which I was also considering if my rep didn’t offer the SS one for free w/ purchase of the box. The wood one is nice, but I feel the wood they used is too soft,
Yikes. I’ve done some hairy stuff with my 105, and never came close to breaking teeth. Did the company sell you new jaws? http://i.imgur.com/2pnHTnkl.jpg That’s the worst one I’ve had yet. 3.5″ pulley off an aircraft-cable using weed whacker. It took 3 heatings with
We use those at the factory i work at. No idea how old they are, but i use them hundreds of times a day just fine.
I couldn’t wait till Monday to find out so I did some googling and found [this](http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthread.php?2451-Cotton-or-oakum-caulking) >Oakum is thicker and oil based. The unspun cotton works in narrower seams and freeboard seams (from waterline to gunwale). The oil based oakum can/will discolor white paint
My first box was a Snap-on top and bottom box, got it for $760 brand new when I was in A&P school. 55% student discount. I used the bottom box for 6 years as a dresser to hold my clothes while living in an
As an added twist, they’ve all been fitted with couplers for 16mm DIN 3404 fittings.
I’m thinking about getting a pair of logger boots. I’m a mechanic but I like to have a little bit of a heel. I’ve never owned an expensive pair of work boots before. Are these made in america, what’s the warranty, about how much?
If your GPS works well, they are not needed. I take sights partly to keep in practice for an electronics breakdown, partly in homage and connection to the navigators of old. When I’m cursing with a hazy horizon, or looking for a break in
You should post to r/woodworking. They would love this. That is an incredible haul of woodworking tools.
Man, I remember my grandfather got so many tools at Sears. Hell, we have a shop vac that’s gotten some ridiculous use that’s over 25 years old (I think it’s almost 30). I remember my parents and grandparents saying you could by so many
And that’s exactly why I bought them. I don’t use them daily, so I can expect most of them to literally last a lifetime. And in addition to that, they work fantastically, so I don’t even feel the need for an upgrade, or in
You’re looking for a Part 147 School (you’ll learn what that means when you get to school) [Here is a directory of all the pt 147 schools in the US](http://airframe-powerplant.com/airframe-powerplant-schools-.htm) If you live in/around Pittsburg, you may want to consider driving 2hrs down the
I’d say so, especially considering their age. Judging from catalogs of the same era, they were produced before 1948 but after 1940. The only thing is they do look like someone cleaned them up with a wire wheel at some point, but that doesn’t
I’ve used those. They’re a dream to use compared to the old school ones we had before. We’ve also got a motorized version that can put ungodly amounts of pressure on a crimp. I love that little bastard.
This has my curiosity. With thru coolant can I assume that its for cnc? Is it for creating some sort of profiled bore, in a single pass? or Different sized holes without a tool change?
Sorry it took so long here it is and another pic with a 2 inch and a 2 1/2 inch. [Imgur] (http://imgur.com/a/5JoZE)
