In case you missed it HD is having a sale on some tools. Up to 45% off. Some good deals on Milwaukee.

It's a Hendey gearhead 14x54"

It was cheap, less than scrap. So if it is junk, well it will make a few cars after its shredded. The G&L surface grinder was a because I already bought a lathe and had room on the trailer still and it was 100 bucks and had a mag chuck with it and it's all close to home. Lol.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Finished my peashooter the other day. Does it count as tool buying if I had to 'assemble' it myself?
TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)-20190620_065433.jpg

5/16" rod, ran a die over the end. 7/8" bolt, drilled and tapped. 3/8" brake line for the sleeve. I think I like the tap vs weld, feels strong and it's easy to replace down the road if need be.

Lisle spring loaded piston ring pliers. Almost identical to the Collins Clamps pliers, but with a spring. Saw Gary Katz post on Instagram and ordered these suckers right away. Can't believe I'm just now finding out about these.

Nice that they are riveted. The screws in the collins clamps are annoying.

$199 is the best price you'll find anywhere for the FUEL kit. And right now you can get it with a free 6.0 battery or one of a number of different tools.

I just ordered one and also got the M12 rocket light which also comes with a free 6.0 battery.
