My go to extensions lately have been a MAC 1/4" (Love the knurling down at the female end), and a Matco 3/8" (still prefer the MAC) with some Wright locking adapters installed (all bought on eBay). ...

Re: Utility cart with sliding top

Ball bearing slides, and between the couple of guys I've known and worked with that have the Homak Pro stuff, it's not far off from Matco (and nicer than the Sunex rebrand carts they sell) and much...

Re: Utility cart with sliding top

Northern Tool, Amazon and all the other online retailers have them. NAPA Auto can also order them in. As far as I know, they're in the $450-500 range.

Re: Utility cart with sliding top

My old coworker had a really nice MAC cart like you're looking for. The top of the sliding parts also opened to store paperwork. Really nice.

Also went to school with a guy that had a really...

Re: Case Generators

Never any issues with burning ethanol, the problem is when a carb sits for a while with ethanol in the bowl. Even if the gas evaporates, the ethanol leaves a nice yellow powder that coats the bowl...

Re: Case Generators

Honda builds inverter generators. The best on the market. Adjust the valves and keep ethanol out of them and they'll go forever.

Case just re-brands the junk Chinese inverter generators.

Re: Let's see your toolbox.

But who the hell stores one of those? Especially for my older Craftsman top box, it made me so happy to see it referred to as a whiskey drawer.:thumbup::beer:

Re: Fluke 88V vs Power Probe IV

Go with a Fluke 87V/88 and learn it well (as long as all the electrical theory you can absorb). Knowing a real meter will make most anything else obsolete. I haven't touched a test light or...

Re: SK from epstein

From my contact with the current SK and what I've seen here, they are all over warrantying old stock with no problem.

Good way to get some of the OCD folks to buy a whole new set when that one RP...

Re: Let's see your toolbox.

Looks like the rails Snap-On sells. I bought a set and cut to fit. Really nice, and doesn't make wrenches sit to tall.

Re: Please recommend a pipe wrench tool

I don't know how great it would work with chrome, but I've wrapped the hell out of my Channellock slip-joint pliers with electrical tape so the teeth grip, but won't leave any marks.
