I just sprung for a new welding helmet. My old one bit the dust so I upgraded to a Hobart Inventor Series Auto-Darkening model. It's a major improvement as my old one was a flip lens type and over 40 years old. It will take a little getting used to but so far I'm really liking it.

I have a hand held induction heater. Works great for heating up stubborn nuts in hard to access places. Much better than the torch and less chance of burning the shop to the ground, again.

I picked up a hard plastic wedgey/prying thing. You can never have too many wedgey things.

Got a set of aluminum wrenches for AN fittings. And a set of AN hose end assembly tools. Maybe I will have no more poked and bloody finger tips in my future?? Made by Koul Tools.

Just picked this Baldor bench grinder up from a yard sale for 20 dollars. It runs very smooth. Now to find some guards, shields and tool rests!

Just finished cleaning my yard sale find up, installed a new cord with a grounded plug and applied a bit of paint. Very happy with the result. Now all I need is the guards, shields and tool rests.

Looking good Phil. That is the "brand" that is used by lots of folks for polishing. That was a good score.
(I have a reconditioned 3/4hp bench grinder from Sears in 1976 and that cotton picking thing won't die)....but I paid more for it. You da man. keep trucking brother.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thanks! As it turns out, that particular model is a polisher/grinder with the polishing wheel goes where the wire wheel presently. I don’t plan on leaving that wire wheel on without a guard.

Phil you stole that grinder for $20.00. It really cleaned up nice.

Picked up an additional plastic scraper for scraping decals, new blow gun that doesn't leak, and some flush cutters so I don't leave any sharp edges on my zip ties.

I also got a set of muffler mock up tools. 3" radius, 2.5" diameter tubing. Should help wrap that exhaust around frame supports and such.

Picked up a used 30 gallon air compressor as a spare for out in the barn/shop. Always needing to air up UTV tires or mower tires and my little pancake compressor gave up this morning. It’s a El Cheapo Husky brand but it builds pressure.
