I just made a deal to buy a small lathe from a friend who is moving. I don't remember the brand or model, (I haven't picked it up yet), but he and I have made parts on it before. Now I need to remember how to use it. It's all fun!

I have a neighbor who is moving and selling everything off. I bought a metal lathe that is probably over a hundred years old, same model my grandfather taught me to use when I was 10. Now I have to learn to use it again. Grand dad's was run with a leather belt, this one has been converted to electric, though the pulleys are still wood. Can't wait to get to using it!

Motor lift plate and an adjustable tilt accessory for the cherry picker.

ZR13 OBD2 Code Reader by Zurich

My 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 pick-up had the "Service Airbag" warning light come on and after a bit of research I decided it was time to look at a code reader. The quote for having a shop read the code was about $50 and the airbag sensor retailed for $275. I had the ZR13 up and running in no time at all. The code was B0103, front airbag sensor 2 on the passenger side. I replaced the sensor with an after market sensor for a third of the price within a half an hour. No more "Service Airbag" warning light and I used the ZR13 to confirm the problem was resolved. It's a great tool at a very reasonable price! HF even honored the $189.99 price shown in their online images!!

Live data stream is extremely helpful!!

Was working on installing my Vintage Air unit. They have some really tight bends up at the condenser. I had to borrow my buddy's S-K 7/8" #42228 crows foot line wrench. Snapon and Matco were much too fat to fit in the area. Soon after, I went to eBay. Now I own one.

I recently bought a new tool box. Twice as big as my trusty Craftsm(e)n boxes. BUT, I already ran out of room! and there are still tools in the old box! To kind of cure the storage problem, I obtained a side hanging box. It gives me more room for my often used tools and a place to work from.


Another quality post.
