Just ordered this one. ]Kreg Tool Boxx Master Set

Before that, more tools for fixin on aircraft.


1956 GMC 370 dump " 'Tater "
1970 VW Volksrod "the Black Bomber"
1973 VW Superbeetle "Oliver"
2007 Chevy Avalanche
2005 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI

I dig all cars, old and new, whether they were hammered out of American iron, German steel, or Japanese tin cans. Being unable to appreciate them all is missing out on a world of great things.
But thats just MY opinion!

Was going to buy a Kreg pocket hole jig. Looked at a couple of woodworking sites and read good things about the Harbor Freight version. It's cast aluminum, and very adjustible, plus it combines two sets of guides so you can do thick and thin pieces.

I'm very pleased.

A set of thin Craftsman tappet wrenches this winter. I wanted a
full set of thin wrences but I'm ashamed to keep them in with
my other tools because they are the chinciest piece of crap
I've ever been stuck with.
They aren't forged like the old thin Bonney tappet wrenches
which I have a few of. This junk was simply pressed out of some
1/8" sheet stock with a dull die and zink plated, the burr is
still on the bottom edge of the (I hate to even call them a)
tool.
Sears has really gone down the dumper in the last few decades
and orta be ashamed to sell something like this which you
wouldn't even see on the shelf at Harbor Freight.

I feel you pain, I could not find a set of forged metric tappet wrenches when i was recently looking. Found some real nice FACOM stamped wrenches, the finish is nice and all edges were finished well. Lucked out and bought the last 6 sets for the tool carts at work.

Denny, I'm with you. My daughter gave me a gift certificate to Sears about a year ago. I checked, its still good, but I can't think of ANYTHING I want to from Sears these days. Maybe I should spend the $25 on some jeans from China :mad:

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
