Ok John, is this a contest to tell you what it's called and used for? I do know so I'll keep quiet for now.

I recently picked up a Harbor Freight tire buster. I tried to break a tire down without it being bolted to the deck... no bueno... I ended up using my 40 year old jack and the weight of my trailer to hold it down. It broke the bead pretty easily. I didn't have to take the tire all the way off though, since I was just replacing a cracked valve.


Another quality post.

Belt grinder to help speed up several steps in a product I machine/fabricate.
Stand is from an old grinder, found it at a junkyard over a year ago anticipating the eventual belt grinder.

Found myself some long reach feeler gauges to help tune a 4-71 blower when the time comes.

Wheel Dollies!
I while back I bought some of those cheap wheel dollies from Harbor Freight. You know, the ones that are basically a steel plate bent in V with 4 casters on each. I wanted to use them on my wife's 2000 VW beetle. No dice. I could move the back end but not the front by myself. It felt like I was going to bend a fender trying to push or pull that thing. Now they live under my snow plow and work fine for that. So now that I have my new one ton, I really needed to move it over to where there is no garage door. I did some research and the gojacks seem to be the bomb but I wasn't going to spend the money they we asking for them. I looked up the HF hydraulic jacks and they seem to get pretty good reviews. Yesterday I splurged and bought 4 of them. They were rated at 1250 lbs each. I think that gave me some wiggle room and hoped that they were capable of doing a little more then rated before they grenaded. Regularly they were 89.95 each and I got 20% off with a coupon.
Brought them home, put the wheels on and tried them out. I easily moved the truck by myself to where I needed it to go. Very pleased with how well they worked.....at least for now. I am not the biggest fan of HF stuff but if they hold up for the few times a year I will need to use them then I will be happy. I got a one year extra warranty so if I break one they will exchange it no questions asked. I don't intend to leave the truck up on the jacks, just for moving it.

This tool was made to use with the driveshaft in place but it wont work on a stubborn front bearing. Send it back. I just wasted $70 plus shipping on it and destroyed it trying to get the front bearing out of the torque tube. This tool is complete junk. Recommend pulling the axles, rear diff cover then differential case, remove the pinion and remove the driveshaft, then go to your flaps and rent the slide hammer and the pilot bushing jaws to go with it, the bearing came out real fast and nice. Oreilies will not charge you to use the tool, leave a deposit and get it back when you return it
