I picked up one of the cheap ones about 35 years ago.  Still have it but don't use it.  could never remember which way to twist the collar for in & out.  Now I use a De Walt 1/4" battery impact driver.  Haven't hit my hand once since I started using it.

Those battery powered one makes teardowns a whole lot faster

This is the impact screwdriver I picked up I can already see I will be needing to buy a better one soon.

Got this Vacuum Gauge to set the TDC on #1 Cylinder on a 2000 Ford F-150 with a 4.2 that I changed a cam synchronizer on

And a transmission jack I got in trade for some work on a lawn mower

So teach me something here. How do you find TDC on #1 cylinder with a vacuum gauge?

Turn until you see compression and keep turning until it start showing  a little vacuum and turn back the other way a little. It easier then it sounds.

I acquired this plumber's soldering iron at a flea market for $3.50. I'm going to square off the end of it and then using a Dremel tool, I will make a logo on the end. Heating this up, I can put my mark on my wood projects.

I haven't been shopping for tools but a retired co-worker is selling his house spur of the moment as they have been accepted to move into a semi assisted living house. He needed to get rid of stuff to put the house on the market. I went and loaded a bunch of stuff last night. Old tools and some hardware.

Picked up a new compression tester at HF yesterday.  Looks good but the plug hole ends look small.

Just used a recent tool purchase this week..  A water pump / power steering pump pulley remover & Installer..  Worth it's weight in gold when ya need it like replacing the rusted out PS pump on my plow truck this week.  I replaced everything power steering..  Pressure and return hoses along with a new oil cooler..  No mo' rust!!  The only lines left to replace now are the tranny cooler lines but they are OK

Wonder if there is a way to adapt the adapters to the size we need?

Might work but would take one of the hoses along to make sure they would thread on OK.

I found a good ID Bore mic a couple days ago and was able to strike a great deal on it. I got it for $50.00 out the door, been watching for one since I lost my old one in the break in a few years ago. I've been getting by using snap gages and OD mics until now. It's a Fowler 4"-12" ID mic.
