I agree and I think the reason why is because it eliminates human error. When I’m crammed into the engine compartment or a bus and I have like 5 inches of clearance between the top of the tool and a bulkhead, there’s no way
In the top right organizer it looks like you have some 3″ robertson drive bits (in the bag) with a quick connect end but a round shaft. Where did you get those? I have one but I can’t find any others like it.
I am a heavy duty diesel tech in a small shop. So not being able to move it around it’s a huge deal. However it is nice to be able to get it right next to my work bay. Being a heavy duty tech
What happens if the clamp lets go halfway through, does it send bits flying through your skull like a garage torsion spring?
I like your dad’s sense of humor. We have done away with the a604 trans completely, now we have the better version with the 62te, does not leak like the old 42te and have been an overall good transmission. The 8-speed is pretty much
I did a little bit of math to try it out. The problem is it’s hard to know how much empty space there is. I just assumed that each bit was a square prism then assumed there was 15% empty space on top of
Ok I’ll try to answer the best I can. I love finding people interested in ncatt as it is rare. Also just a reminder all my comments are my opinion only. Firstly you are absolutely correct- the more certifications and licenses you have the
It’s for a safing pin used to keep ejection seats from going off by accident. It’s got a big obnoxious flag on it so you remember to take it out before the aircraft leaves, because if there’s any time to use an ejection seat,
I have a 4.5″ Milwaukee grinder (I’m not arguing about who is better, just a related story) that I’ve used for many years. Then Hurricane Sandy struck and my house went 6-7′ under water. My grinder and Sawzall survived being submerged in saltwater for
Looks wise I’m with them 100%, functionality is not quite as phenomenal but still good. Sometimes the twist locks are finicky and the dura-clips (ordered them by accident, replaced with twists) don’t hold AT ALL. The push-to-release on the individual rails works well which
Great photo! The missing sockets would drive me nuts!
When I bought this box to replace my aging, frankensteined-together Craftsman, I looked into several places online that sold the nice tool foam. The kind of stuff that you use a heat gun to fuse the bottom, contrasting-color layer to the thick foam after
Nice collection of pliers. Is that the Vice Grips brand or the Austrian brand. I forget the name
I can tell you this much about tools. The only way to get your money out of them is work it out, but working in this business means continually buying more tools. I’ve spent enough on tools to buy a new home, and that’s
The hinged cover does a great job keeping all the sockets and wrenches in place. I’ve never had a problem. Our box is “light enough to be removed by hand”, but “by hand”, in this case, meaning 2 guys lifting, each of whom is
Yea that’s right you filthy whore! God I love r/toolporn…
Three drawers total, top drawer contains full sets of Wiha Torx, as well as Metric and SAE nut drivers. Second drawer contains full sets of Bondhus Metric and SAE Allen/Hex drivers. Third drawer is all my phillips, flat blade screw drivers that are a
… thats a really good idea. Originally I kept them long and also kept the spare socket holders because I figured my socket collection would expand but now that I think about it in the last 6 years I havent bought any new sockets
That is pretty sweet. I am digging the color. My edc is a Leatherman Skeletool. Owned it for years and I was thinking about grabbing the black finished model, but I have become attached to mine.
Yes, in amazing shape! When I found it (yard sale) it was all original…just like in the picture. All I had to do was sharpen the blade. $5?! I paid 15! yes….only 15…I already had 2 offers for 150, but declined. It is mine
So much debt it one picture. I can’t say much, though. I’ve got a SnapOn box and a couple tools from them, but I’ve moved over to Matco, mostly because I can’t stand the SnapOn guy that comes to our shop so I refuse
Now that’s what I like to see. Stuffed to the gills! EDIT: Very nice collection you’ve got there! All top tier stuff?
