maybe it was a ball joint removal kit. I don't remember buying it, and my memory is poor.

Just got back from Harbour Freight. Found a 48" rechargeable work light. You can hang this under the hood and light up everything. Had a 20% off coupon so it didn't hurt my wallet to bad.

Bought a Lincoin Spool Gun for my MIG 140. I couldn't find anyone locally that would weld aluminum for a reasonable price. The hourly rate around here is $75.00 with a 2 hour minimum. The cost of the Spool Gun will pay for it's self in two uses.

Back to Harbor Freight. Bought a power steering pump pulley tool. Worked great, saved a lot of cussin and probably some bleeding too.

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
So, my ol' Blue Point muffler cutoff tool is feeling weaker and weaker. How do I know? A few years back, someone gifted me a muffler cutoff tool. A Huskie version from Home Depot. Boy, that thing has some oomph! So, last week I was on a tool guy truck and mentioned I should find a replacement for my 30+ year old Blue Point as it was feeling very worn. He said, look at this one. This much horsepower, etc. Gave me the price and I balked. I hate spending money on tools these days. Especially tool truck prices. I told him, why should I buy this one when I can get another Huskie for somewhere around $50 at Home Depot?? Then he hooked me!! "This one is reversible!" Why has no one ever thought of this before?? No more sparks in the face????? I'm still doing a lot of frame work and body patch panel work on my projects. Can't wait to get back to it!!
