I bought one of these on eBay last week. It was new open box and I paid about half of what they normally cost.

I have worn out 2 Jancy Sluggers in the last 30 years and have one that is getting a little weak. Fein, which is the top name in Germany, bought out Jancy a few years ago. The motor part of it is Fein and appears to be better quality than Jancy ever was. These things are amazing as how they drill holes in heat treated truck frames.

That's very nice. I've had an eye out for a good mag drill, still do. Guess unless I stumble over one first then the next time I need one for a job I'll have to actually buy one.

A day or so agoa friend( in his 70s) gave me some tools that hd belonged to his dad. A almost complete 3/8 scokets ratchet etc.a partial set of bluepoint wrenches and a craftsmn wrench.not raelly anything I need as i have 2 tool boxes on the go,1 at home the other at work. The unique thing with these are that they are of the 1930-1940s era. Got me looking at few of the tools that I currently use everyday at work and in have a few that fall in the antiaue category , although not that far back. I have n interest in antquie tools and have started to collect them.the ones given to me I have had my eye on them for a few years.iwould imagine a few of you old timers on this forum will have more than a few antique tools. Have a look and throw that info out too. I checkednmy tools outnon the internet to find out what year they were.i just typed in antigue snapon tools and I found a site that has good in fo on a lot of different brands of tools. So again check yours out and see whwt you got. If you don't already know.

Very interesting!
I've never seen those before but I'll sure know what they are when/if I do see any.

Thanks for sharing,
Grigg

Bought a set of racheting end wrenches from HF. Where else? R&R'd the alternator and they worked slick. Never knew what I had been missing all these years!

I got a Wright 3430 3/8" drive ratchet. Made in USA, its a fine clicker. The interesting thing is it appears to be on a 1/4" frame. It is NOT a regular stubby, and will work well inside of doors and under the dash. It is very slim and only a little over 4 1/2" long. Snap-On has several but they are waaaaay more expensive and this one has a lifetime warranty, too.

You all have not been buying any tools! Found this thread on the 3rd page...

Last week I bought a Ryobi 4.5" angle grinder at Ho-Depo for $39. Nice things are Rat tail switch and the side handle has a slot to store the spanner wrench. Neat idea, I often cannot find my spanner wrenches, which for some unknown reason tend to be specific to the brand and/or size of the grinder. I end up loosening or tightening with a gloved hand, but putting the wrench in the handle is still a good idea.

I haven't ran it much yet, it runs pretty quiet, probably because I don't think it has that much power. But it is always handy to have another one loaded with a different wheel, I think I have 4 now, 2 Makitas (OK brand, they keep running, just short on power), this new Ryobi and the $100 Milwaukie which is head and shoulders better than the others.

But for the price and functions, I like the rat-tail switches, I had to try it...
