That looks just like mine – pulled out of a trash pile by my grandfather. One of the long gearbox cover screws was snapped off in the motor housing. He was going to strip it down to scrap, but I spotted it in his
Its relatively new, and I clean it whenever I’m between jobs, hate to see it dirty!
I used to have a big box, then worked with some guys who taught me a valuable lesson. I’d run circles around you with nothing but a rollcart and eat your lunch 😉
Sorry I worded that badly; I’ve only been a full time wrench for a couple months now, so I don’t have much and it only looks okay because it’s not nearly as full as most boxes.
You just killed the fantasy I’ve had ever since I clicked on this image thirty seconds ago. I hope you and reality are happy… It just looked like such trailer park goodness.
Each to his own , but it’s nice(and faster ) to be able to use different sizes with out having to change sockets …and some times I need more than one size ..same reason I have multiple ratchets ..I often need more than one
Thanks. You just cost me $500. I’ve been really happy with my Swag 20-ton press brake and had been debating adding one of these setups to my garage. Seeing your post convinced me to pull the trigger and order a Milwaukee 6232 variable speed
I see you got a FX80 ratchet. I have the same one, but with the comfort handle. I use it everyday and love the hell out of it. I would also recommend the [FLL80](http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item.asp?P65=&tool=all&item_ID=756268&group_ID=682323&store=snapon-store&dir=catalog). It’s a nice addition and I end up using it
What I love about a pro team is that they have a SET of tools for each project. Brakes? Bang, there’s all the shit I need. Suspension arm? Bang. I’d love to apprentice for Leena Gade for just a day.
With this many tools, you **have** to work with tools for a living? (Or not, and you could just be an addict like a lot of us…) What do you do? Is your work space more impressive? Or are they all company supplied tools?
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
