Mastercool 71475 (universal hydraulic flaring tool) Opinions?

Hey Everyone,

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

I'm looking at this tool primarily to flare brake lines. I don't do much brake work but when I do the cheap...

Re: If you had access to free hydraulic hose and fittings

In my experience you can have 100 hydraulic hoses hanging up in storage for "someday" and when "someday" comes along you'll still end up having a custom hose made 9 times out of 10.

Credit Score

Hey Everyone,

I know from reading past discussions that opinions on the value of and need for a good credit score widely vary. I'm not really interested in that discussion. For the record I think...

Re: Need advice on a replacement pressure washer Spray Gun.

Do you just need a tip or do you need an entire lance/gun?

For tips I like rotating "turbo tips" for a lance GP seems okay.

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: Trying to fix Kubota diesel tractor...

Most Kubota diesels I've worked with are gravity priming. Did you prime by the book or just crank & crank until it started?

I've never needed to crank for half an hour to prime any of my...

Re: Trying to fix Kubota diesel tractor...

If you haven't tested the glow plugs yet do that first. Quickest method is by first confirming you have voltage and then using an amp clamp to check current draw. Keep in mind this is only a valid...

Re: Home Depot, Lowes...

I prefer Lowes locally, I can go shopping an not have someone asking "if I need help" every five minutes. When I do need help the staff at my local Lowes also seems slightly more knowledgeable.

Re: Automated safety hitch

I don't like it. If you need more space buy a bigger trailer, it could very likely be cheaper in the end and would definitely be safer.

It's a "solution looking for a problem" in my opinion.

Re: not ever happy with a 2wd truck

In my very limited experience some trucks get by just fine with 2WD and some seem to need 4WD to get out of there own way.

A few years ago my father had a '95 GMC 1500 2WD pickup with the 4.3V6...

Re: Cold Cut Saw vs Bandsaw

I have both an Evolution saw and larger bandsaws. The Evolution saw works nicely when used as intended but seems much more sensitive to misuse, ie steel too thick, steel too thin, feed too fast, feed...

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.

Expecting an employee to brush snow off a car in a junkyard sounds absurd to me.

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: The Thread of Awesome!

My best attempt at a simple explanation is that the sum of the weight of the buckets exceeds the weight of the table top. The buckets sitting on the table top prevent it from being pulled further...

Re: in over my head..

In my opinion you need to tear it down and check the timing if you're only 95% sure it's correct. It might be a cracked block or some other issue you had no control of but unless you're 100% sure you...

I did about 67MPH in a stock 1982 Diesel Vanagon (it was a really long steep hill with a tailwind!) :lol:

Re: Snow boots?

Muck boots win for me. I got a pair of the mid-height chore boots for Christmas, the light weight at easy on-off more than make up for the fact that they're not the warmest boots I've ever worn.

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.
