Sorry, I’m confused. Is this just a holder for the metal socket holders? I was expecting the wood peg that you have there to be where the sockets would go. I do like the wood holder though!
I actually have a MAC gearless ratchet that is almost identical to this one. Model number XR8PAZ. It looks like they don’t make it anymore, but it’s great. It looks similar to this design, but it doesn’t have the hex portion on it. Both
beam type torque wrenches are a necessity when rebuilding components that are shaft driven and require bearing preloads — input shafts for hydraulic pumps, differentials, steering boxes for a few examples. measuring the rotational force it takes to drive something is a step often
Ah, just so you know you circled the most used pliers in there. Apart for the Knipex being used as a wrench of way to hold large things those are really all I ever use for 90% of the time. They are Snap On
Can we see a picture of all the drawers open at the same time? ^^^^^^Don’t ^^^^^^Ever ^^^^^^Try ^^^^^^This
I actually purchased both at Sears as a set for $30.00. I have an older set of made in USA craftsman handtools, and if you shop in store you can find older USA stuff. These are China made, but they work great, look good
I’d probably go for something like the Koloss from Wera. [Link](http://www-uk.wera.de/product_detail_uk.html?L=1&file=root_category_ratchets_koloss_8002_c_set&lang=en-UK)
Fine woodworking has the plans for a much simpler, but easy to build toolchest using Baltic Birch here: http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/57874/build-a-hanging-tool-cabinet. There’s a PDF file of the plans available for free here: http://images.taunton.com/downloads/FW1124_Tool-Cabinet.pdf I also made a Sketchup model for fun, if people are interested. Not
We use them for both, pulling and some lifting. Add long as it’s within the WLL. Ski lifts have a lot of really heavy things and a lot of things under extreme tension.
I have an original model 73 my dad gave me 20 years ago that is still the best multimeter I’ve ever held to this day, and I worked several years maintaining EE/CpE labs that had virtually unlimited budgets. It really says a lot about
yes and no Without a depth rod, its more compact overall. Say you need to measure something 11 inches, that means it will have a tail sticking 11 inches from that. So total will be around 22 inches + the jaw+ display. Large calipers
View post on imgur.com I consider myself a huge fan of the inventor who designed this thing. The router pantograph was designed and originally made by Matthias Wandel of www.Woodgears.ca and is normally made out of wood. This all metal edition was sent to
I don’t get to use them as often as I would like but I do am kinda obsessive about cleaning my tools before I put them up. I also try not to beat on them unless I have to I know they’re just tools
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.
