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)
That is pretty cool. Now my compasses all seem inadequate.
I’ve got one. I love it. It’s got plenty of power for what it’s designed for and makes working in tight spots without much room for ratchet swing (I’ve got the same snap on ratchets as op, so not much swing is even needed)
A drill is used for one sized hole and only that size. A [boring bar](http://www.boysungrain.com/images/project9-09/p11.jpg) can be adjusted to make many different sized holes. Usually holes larger than 1″ can and will be bored, as drills larger are expensive (depends on the industry and
I do a lot of auto work on the side, and having cordless power tools makes it a lot easier to go wherever someone may be. I’ve got the half Inch fuel impact, grinder and sawzall and all work fantastic for what I do.
My dad worked inventory control at Bryant back in the 80s. He later went off to run their little credit union. I got to visit him and we always got to walk across the giant floor. I had no idea what the machines did
Well shit, i was almost going to so nope not in Australia but after some quick research I realize that I’m an idiot and luckily i became a mechanic not an English teacher. I shall try to remember that next time i post my

Yup its a pretty cool place if you’re ever in the area come in and look at it… come in October or November that’s when the 1st years are taking their Beetle Cats apart (in groups of 3 people) to replace ever last timber
On big trucks, they’re very useful for air line fittings in tight spots. Same goes for hydraulic lines. I still use them rarely. They’re one of those things that you don’t need often, but when you need them you’ll be really glad they’re around.
Doesn’t look like this one is included in the UK market, as far as I can tell. Does look like you can buy on [eBay](http://www.ebay.com/itm/DEWALT-Plunge-Base-for-Compact-Router-DWP611-DNP612-NEW-/281376484651?hash=item4183586d2b#shpCntId) though.
I have similar socket holders and I think you have your sockets on there upside down. I believe the 6pt/12pt side is supposed to go down. I think that would explain why some of the sizes on the posts are hidden and the sockets
Oh OK. Thought it was a portable one. Thanks for the response. Those hand crafted things are awesome today. Guess it’s unknown if it’s a Freemason set, despite having a G in the compass and square. Weird how it’s wall mounted when it is
cant believe you’ve spent teh money for snap on wrenches but still use craftsmen screw drivers. buy a good set youll never look back

Get a hoist and some place as high as your pig is long plus one foot to anchor it to. You do not want to be fighting gravity. Also, you might want to ask around at the place you get your pig feed for
Not the person you were replying to, but my uncle has been a mechanic for 35+ years. He keeps two sets of everything, all Craftsman Pro. That way he always has a backup in case something breaks, and then after the job is complete
