sounds like you need a bigger garage! Can't imagine making the wife park outside during inclement weather.Or do what I do and don't allow anyone but yourself in the garage! I've commandeered mine at this point. My understanding wife doesn't even think of parking inside anymore. It took decades but she finally gets it.
I need a SHOP. And she's fine. I kept her car clear of snow all winter. Had it warmed up every day for her use. I even keep it filled with gas. It's a fair trade-off.sounds like you need a bigger garage! Can't imagine making the wife park outside during inclement weather.
I thought I was stupid when I bought a set of flexible ratchet wrenches. Or a set of open center hole sockets and socket wrenches (so I can use a socket to run a nut down a piece of threaded rod, for example). You may have just topped me!New, not sure about cool. In fact I think I've lost my mind. What in God's name do I need these for? Over the years I've found enough need for both six and twelve point sockets and wrenches to oufit myself with a good selection of both.
These little buggers adapt a larger twelve point wrench or socket down to a six point. In 2mm increments. So to use the 15mm one, you would put it into the closed end of a 17mm wrench.
I cannot yet for the life of me imagine a scenario where I will actually use one of these. But anyway, here they are.
ditto!Ha, well. I actually use my flex ratcheting wrenches enough that they have supplanted the regular ratcheting ones and I've even worn a couple to the point they needed to be replaced. I've seen the open hole socket set and managed to resist those. Seems like they would indeed be useful, at least once every couple of years or so. These things? Ehh.
Looks like a nice tool for the price. Can it truly load test the batteries? Seems like it is a bit small to handle that.New battery checker. Downside to having too many vehicles is too many batteries. And I've lost a couple to being ignored/forgotten a little too long. I bought a basic old school amp-checker battery tester at Harbor Freight but it never really suited me.
This is an off-brand capacitive tester really but it shows end result in percentage. It also rates state of charge. So something like "low state of charge currently but 90% state of health". Exactly what I want to know. IE, good shape but put the trickle charger on it for a few days. Also displays a waveform so you can watch the voltage drop when cranking the engine. It occurs to me that feature might also be used for a cranking compression test. Might be neat for folks who don't have a scope available to do that with. I'll have to check that out. Long term reliability? Who knows. All in with shipping is was right about $50 off eBay. Equivalent functionality in such a tool off a tool truck is in the hundreds of dollars.
