I got ton of gearwrench tools at the shop. They have never let me down and ten times cheaper than Snap on. If your on facebook there is a group and the admin is a gearwrench dealer and post good deals. It called Snap On Mac Tools Matco Buy / Sell / Trade for Mechanics


I started buying Gearwrench tools several years ago when Craftsman started going down the tubes. I can’t say anything I’ve ever gotten from them has disappointed me. Another one I’ve bought a few things from recently is Tekton. Quality seems to be above Most HF stuff. Thanks for the Facebook link. Ive never been on it but I’ll have to get the Mrs.to look that one up for me.

I've had this Tekton 1/2 dr torque wrench for awhile. It resembles the HF one, but it just felt better in my hand.

Almost got my new to me tombstone lincoln welder complete, new selector switch installed, and new internal fan installed. But didn't go with original 220 fan. Lincoln wanted $125 for it, Ebay wanted $80, went to YouTube and seen a guy use a $15 220 PC fan and it works great.Just waiting on my front decal to be made 20180522_163859.jpg

Was the existing fan broke or did you just want a new one?

I had a little welding job at home too far to reach with the 240v Hobart 170 , I was thinking of borrowing some welding extension cords from work , about 30-40' each and with my 30' might have been able to use the dryer outlet ( didn't even look at the plug at that point ) Harbor Freight had their 125v flux welder on sale for $90 and thought I would give it a try . Some of the reviews mention that because it's a AC output it doesn't weld as nice as the DC ones . Bought it and spend a little time doing practice welds in the position and similar metal . The weld job was on about .090" thick , spidered with both horizontal and vertical . I thought it did a good job , a better welder would have made it even better but that's about as as good as it gets with me welding lol https://www.harborfr...lder-63583.html    The picture should have been rotated clockwise , oh well .
