...you go Rusty. Problem I have is if I buy more tool boxes I need to enlarge the shop. Hey, not a bad Idea, thank you.
I was taking a chair apart today with my son and ended up using about half the tools in my tool box. I told my son, "no you see why pop has to have all these toys". He just smiled and told me he'd buy tools but one day they gonna be mind anyway. I told him then he better be showing me he knows how to use them...then I sat on a roll around while he changed a set of struts. We get smarter as we get older....don't we.
Knurling tool and a bunch of other cutters for the lathe. My son's starting to like it, ask for a bunch of new project to do on it. He's not the best at school, so might as well teach him something else. Everything related to a tractor, motor or machine get is attention, but books.... Different story! Sadly all the wood, welding, electrical, mechanic and machine shop at the school are getting replace by computer room and other "new" things. Luckily enough I was one of the last batch of students to have access to all those. The only one left today is the mechanic shop were they "put away" trouble kids. I don't think there is enough tools left to change oil in a lawnmower. I'm telling you, in a short while, we will have a major shortage of skilled workers. Sorry for blowing off steam, all have a great evening.
I got a door helper that bolts to a floor jack. It allowed me to put both doors on the truck by myself, without busting a gut. They jacked up into place, and slid right on the hinges. Really recommend it.

Mark, I like that set up. I'm tired of standing on my tippy toes (even at 6'2...OK, probably more like 6'1" now, yea, I'm shrinking...) to look in the top drawers of a upper cabinet. I also really like the full width drawers offered on most lower cabinets. I'm in the market for another lower cabinet

A 6-lug spindle socket for the rear of my 4100. 2-5/8ths inch socket I found at the local farm store for $12. Just had to grind file the lugs a little thinner until it locks right on to the spindle nuts. Worked perfect
