Forum: The right (and wrong) tools

Discuss all the tools for your project: what you use, what you broke, etc.

  1. Welders...

    I'm looking to pick myself up a welder. Nothing serious, just to get practice and learn and such for welding. I'm looking at this one from Harbor Freight. http://www.harborfreight.com/120-amp-230-volt-mig-and-flux-welder-97503.html It runs off household power (which I like). Also it's able to...

  2. Engine hoist woes..

    So my hoist doesn't sit level :( I fought with it removing the engine, and just hanging the engine on the stand it doesn't sit level. In order to have all the wheels on the ground, I need to stand on the one rear corner and it'll balance out. I'm thinking one of those engine levelers will...

  3. Pneumatic tools

    Whats your preferred make/style? I'm using a Kobalt set right now. 1/2" impact wrench, 3/8" ratchet, and a few other goodies that came in the set. I need to pick up a 3/8" impact wrench (as sometimes this 1/2" is a beast to get into smaller spaces). I'm thinking of finding something around...

  4. EDU me on battery chargers

    I'm clueless. I don't have one, nor do I have jumper cables. I saw an advertisement for Battery Tender products while watching Powerblock this morning on Speed. How are they?

  5. Battery pack rebuilds

    I have a dewalt 18v hammer drill with one eh..battery and a dead one. I'm looking to rebuild them (I got the drill and everything for free years ago) to get better use out of the cordless drill. Anyone ever rebuild these? They're 18v NiCD battery packs. I can get two new ones for $120.

  7. Best portable jump starter or power supply?

    I've been thinking about the harbor freight centech 5in1 because I like all the features or the Clore 1700 cause the reviews are so damn good. Anyone have good or bad stories about any brand?

    Both are brand new, never used. Matco compression gauge and vacuum gauge set. Great to help you diagnose problems with your engine. Comes with directions and a few adapters if you want to test other engines . $80 SHIPPED in the continental US. If you're interested and you're outside that, shoot...

  13. Flashlight/Penlight

    I was curious as to which flashlight/penlight you guys use. I bought a Streamlight Stylus Pro last week and just love it. Alot of punch for such a small light. So what do you all carry in your pocket/tool box?

  15. Powder coating

    Is anyone else doing their own powder coating? we just got a powder coating setup for the shop and I have to say that the first test run came out very nice.

  16. Best Tools

    No, this isn't a contest for the mods... I am talking hand tools, and not of the flesh variety. I destroyed another Craftsman tool today, and every time I go to get them replaced, I get one from China. Do they make any decent tools in the USA?
