Cool Splicing into a MIG power cable.

With the 7' power cable I can only weld in certain areas of my shop. Sometimes I need to weld outside. I picked up this 25' cable used for a motor home for $5 at a garage sale. It's a 12/3 with...

Cool Question on battery configurations for Milwaukee M12 Fuel 1/2" drill.

Just received my new Milwaukee M12 Fuel 1/2" drill and I'm quite pleased with it. Question: Why the 2 different sized batteries that come with it? Why didn't Milwaukee just include another XC4.0...

Cool Re: Compressor CFM and PSI recommendations

Good choice! CFM is everything. I have an IR 80gal - 90psi - 18cfm. I'll never need another compressor! I've never had an issue breaking the most overly torqued or rusted nuts. I can run my...

$30,000 for a house and garage on that large lot? That's ridiculous! I live in California. Out here, $30K might buy the garage but there'd probably be liens on it! Multiply that number by 10 and...

Re: What's a fair price for this mid box, cleaned up?

OK, thought it might be something special. I think I'll just clean it up and stick it between my top and bottom boxes. Thanks for the replies!

Cool Re: Craftsman 150 drill press head unit disassembly (pic heavy).

Outstanding! Looks to be in great shape! Just make sure there's not any wobble in the spindle. You can probably just give it a light restoration, like I did. Doesn't look abused, at all. Now...

Cool Re: Vintage Snap On to Restore or just Junk it?

Personally, I think you should just junk the original top box and the bottom box, as well. They're garbage! You've caught me on a good day and I'm feeling in a generous mood. I'm just over the...

Need opinions on a Matco MT2836 3/8" air ratchet. Apparently, they retail in the high $200's. I can get this one for $100 and that's good 'cause I don't want to spend any more than that on an air...
