Bought some of those hex drive drill bits the battery drill chucks scuff up your bits so bad when they slip ...an old machinist told me to soak the drill press chuck (jacobs)in diesel fuel just lower it into a can of D.F. for the weekend. Also said tighten all three positions on the chuck ! with diesel lube works good helps protect your number and letter bits !

Just bought a new Ingersoll Rand 90 degree die grinder. My Harbor Freight one still works but does not have the safety lock trigger and was always concerned for an accident to happen. The IR is much quieter and more powerful. So powerful that it shreds roloc discs very easily @ 90 psi.
$54.00 on Amazon.

That can make you jump! When you set down a die grinder and it starts operating on its own!!

Very timely,
I was operating a HF die grinder yesterday with a carbide bit inside the cab. . Set it down on a HF moving blanket and next thing you know leaned on the trigger and it went full tilt, luckily it spun into the blanket and stalled itself. It would of been a mess if I would of hit it directly with my butt cheek. Definitely will be being more careful in the future.

An excellent gun screw driver set, my Craftsman drivers have been well taken care of. Hand me downs from my dad and brother. They do wear out after 56 years. Doc


Currently making 1954 3100 better than new

I picked up a little ring, dolly, pointer, hammer head type of body dolly. Hopefully, it will help get in to those tight spots.

I just purchased a better wet/dry vaccuum, 6 point deep and standard impact sockets (imperial), ratcheting wrenches, a nice breaker bar, and some needle-nose pliers.

Local FB marketplace purchase. Paid $5 and it actually works and has the original owners manual! This one is more compact than my other Sears model. The last one is much quicker for a spot check.
