Re: Gedore: Toolgasm

I love that pipe wrench. I've been looking at a similar one Knipex makes, just waiting for an excuse to buy one!

Re: Does Anybody Know Why Milwaukee Stopped Making Their Dry Cut Saw

I'm assuming it's the 14" bench saw that they've discontinued, right?

I have one, Evolution brand not Milwaukee and I haven't been too satisfied with it. Blade life never lived up to my...

Re: 2 vs 3 Jaw Pullers

I have never regretted buying a quality puller of any sort.

I probably have +20 in all configurations and sizes and they all have a use. My advice is to check out flea markets, garage sales, etc...

Re: Help me find a chainsaw that I can start

Look at the Stihl (easy to start) line. My Grandfather bought one when he was no longer able to start his old Husky.

I've tried it a few times and it's like magic, pull the cord with hardly any...

I have a set of metric double open end wrenches with that open end. I can't remember the name at the moment. If I recall correctly they're supposed to be a high torque open end for damaged or frozen...

Metabo for me. I have two of them (4-1/2" quick release) along with a DeWalt, Hitachi, Craftsman Industrial, and 9" Milwaukee.

Mastercool 71475 (universal hydraulic flaring tool) Opinions?

Hey Everyone,

I know a few of you have this tool so I'm shopping for opinions.

Re: what is the best bargain in long metric wrenches

I think your expectations are unrealistic. $150 for a complete set of NEW long pattern metric combo wrenches is pretty representative of the cheaper end of the market.

If you forgo the "long...

Re: Cold Cut Saw vs Bandsaw

Re: New Armstrong 88T Aerospace 3/8 Ratchet First Impression`s

I might be wrong on this but my understanding it that "aerospace" tools are sealed differently (rivets instead of screws) to prevent them from coming apart in use.

Re: lets see some SO classic 60's

I think it's a decent box and pretty price competitive if you'll be getting 50% off.

That being said it's a smaller box than I'd want to start out with. If you get the discount on the full line...

Re: Do you use sockets over 1 1/4" for general automotive/truck?

1-1/2" is a common size for the nut on a hitch ball.

Re: Big old lathe

Definitely get a picture if you can. A machine that size from the 60's could still have some real value assuming it's not clapped out completely.

Too rich for my blood.

The only thing more expensive than an expensive Bridgeport is a cobbled together cheap Bridgeport.

Re: Cleaning a corroded electrical cord

I would chop the end off and replace it with a single 15A or 20A (depending on wire size) female plug.
