I wish I had one to cut garden silouhettes with. But, I don't need one more hobby.

There have been more projects than I can count that I couldnt have finished or have been made easier in the last 10 years with a plasma cutter. I dont have a O/A torch, so this is how I cut and heat stuff. The last project was to cut out a skin for a guitar from 18ga steel. Try that with a torch. Next one will be cutting out frame x members from 3/16 for the XXLT. anyone that says they dont need one probably still carries a flip phone

And constantly gripes about anyone using newer technology when he just refuses to move to the next century.

Wife strippers were on sale for $10 at Canadian tire. Got a bit of a dogs breakfast to deal with in boat. I had just never seen this type anywhere and easy to use I. Tight areas

I went ahead and ordered one of these Lisle valve spring compressors after looking closer at my home made rig.  It's been bent & straightened enough that I can see some craze lines in the too soft metal.  New tool should be here tomorrow off Amazon.

I don't grip about anyone using a smart phone, until they can't get pictures right side up and just quit trying.  Yes, I still have a flip phone that works great and will keep a flip phone as long as I possibly can.   Not into throwing  $$$ at  technology.  I am in this century and doing just fine.

I have that one and it works great. I also own the other style for the Briggs L Heads.

My son talked me into getting a "smart phone".  I kept it 4 days and took it back to Verizon. I hated the dang thing.  Too big, too slippery to stay in my shirt pocket, could not put it in my pants pocket because of butt dial, Verizon guy said I should buy a holster for it, hang it on my belt.  Nonsense.

 

AND my bill was double.   Why would I pay twice the phone bill to duplicate what I have on my laptop and desktop?

 

I'm back to my old flip-phone, for a few calls and an occasional picture.

I've been wanting one of these 20 Ton Press from Harbor Freight for a couple of years but never could pull the trigger on it. They usually go on sale for $179.99 but this month with coupon their $139.99. I couldn't pass this up. It's going to be freezing rain tomorrow & nasty out so a lot of coffee & a good fire going on in the shop will be a good day to put this monster together.

Have one just like it and it works super!  If you really wanna do it the easier way, buy an air over hydraulic 20 ton jack.....makes it an absolute breeze to use.
