There have been too many times where something like this would have been great. It also has a torque conversion chart, and a degree wheel for TTY fasteners. They make some with huge ratios to torque bolts to thousands of pounds, but cost thousands of dollars.


I never heard of a torque multiplier. Thanks for the info.

What was the last tool I bought? I don't know: I haven't bought my last tool yet ;-)

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
Had to do work on my 1998 C3500. With the sway bar being tight to the Pitman, you run out of room real quick, I just happened to walk on the Snap-On truck that day and he had a specific Pitman puller for that era of truck. Kind of a neat, pivitol wedge kind of thing that clears the sway. $200 for a $5 job! But, then again, I like new tools!

Bought a Dremel 3000 yesterday to complete a home project. Worked great, and can see me using it for many other projects. A pretty versatile/handy tool.

Been watching this tool box at Northern Tool for a while. Last week there was a clearance sale and the tool box suggested price, for some time, has been over 300 bucks. During the clearance this box, with roller bearing drawers and the liners, was marked down to 130 bucks.
I used a 20 dollar coupon I had gotten in the mail and now its at a hundred bucks...... .I pointed out to the lady that the side support was twisted and a couple scratches on it and hit her for another discount. Bought it for 96 dollars including tax.

.....the reason the side braces were twisted was the front two support "legs" were put in upside down. I had already measured it and figured it out before bartering. Fixed it as soon as I got it home. Now I can put all my sockets in one box....well, most of them!!!!

Sounds like a pretty good deal, Achipmunk. Do you have a picture of the new box?

A 1/2” female to 3/4” male socket adaptor. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get one.
