    :hello: My son broke my 30 MM 1/2 drive socket trying to remove the nut on the front drive shaft on the back of his transfer case on his truck. I'm not even sure if it is worth going to Sears to exchange it.

    :hello: I found out Sears Craftsman non-moving hand tools are still made in the USA. I bought this new puller set for rebuilding the front end of my Yamaha 350 4x4 Grizzly. It works great. The only thing it came with no papers so it took me awhile figuring out which tool is for what. :laughing7:

    :hello: I bought a set of 3 universal 3 jaw pullers for $18 off of E Bay. I've used them on a few bikes so far. The only thing is the nuts kept falling off so I put SS self locking nuts on all three sets.

    :hello: I bought 3 ARMSTRONG USA made tools off of E Bay. A new 3 piece ($130) internal external snap ring plier set. A used ($85) 1/4 in. drive torque wrench 30 to 200 in. lbs. A used ($95) 1/2 in. drive torque wrench 25 to 250 ft. lbs. Both torque wrenches look new. No wear what so ever. A new 25 to 250 LB 1/2 IN runs near $400. I've seen new ones for $350.

    :hello:I bought this Air Brake Bleeder by TOOLMECH. Model # TM8002 . Not sure of the Country of origin. I think it set me back around $40. I bought it off of E Bay from a supplier in Australia. I've never used it but come to find out that 3 other guys did. :laughing7: My friend Wayne used it, his Son & Brother. Wayne had it last & he said it worked really well. The one that I borrowed from my friend Josh bled two calibers at the same time. It also worked great. IMG_4320.JPG IMG_4321.JPG IMG_4323.JPG IMG_4324.JPG

    New boxes and cabinets, freebies from work! Left is a 24×36 drawing cabinet that has roller drawers and construction I'd put up against any snap on box, the 2 in the middle will work great for bigger tools, polishing supplies and other junk I want to clean up. The microfilm boxes and old disk boxes are nice for hardware. The right box is a fireproof cabinet that is heavy as sin and will hold my reload stuff and anything else that may need air tight with desiccant. 2 more 4 drawer cabinets were also on the gift list, one is going to turn into a smoker. Needless to say, I'm real happy with my new storage!

    Those work great for bleeders that are stuck. Plus they fit where the nut splitter usually dont.

    :hello: The first set(pic #1 post #36) is actually 2 sets. For some reason they sold one set with no plastic box but the box had space for both sets. So total cost for 3 sets is around $75.
