GENERAL TOOL AND MACHINE DISCUSSION / Re: I made a great buy!

Nice!

My problem is time. I have the tools and knowledge but not the time. My last big bill was for replacing the clutch on my truck, when your on the road for weeks at a time a $500 labor bill to not spend you precious time at home under your truck is worth it.

Last thing wasn't a tool, but a Tally counter.


Click, click, click, thought it was so cool and couldn't pass it up for 40 cents.

Really made me sad to see the news of Rick's passing this morning.  I am happy that he was still around for their induction to the rock and roll hall of fame last year.

Been a fan of them for years. Wish I would have had the opportunity to see them live.

Sitting at the local service center getting an alignment, and listening to the price quotes for work being done. Pretty expensive to get a car serviced these days.

Poor guy customer just was told that his 2012 Sonata needed a water pump - parts and labor $740.

My alignment is $75 -

....we should all be glad that we have tools and some know how on doing basic services on our family cars. If not for those basic skills, we and our families would be hurting financially. I could not afford our family fleet of cars and trucks if we had to go the service center route for routine maintenance jobs.

Just an observation from sitting here for an hour or so.

Most of my tools were purchased in that mindset. I like to work on things and tools are the means to an end.

Who needs to have more of a reason to buy a tool other than the fact it is old and a Plomb? That is a great grab/save and would match my 30's 3/4dr Plomb sockets.

Nice find -- like anything B&D from back in the day, this is probably a very good tool.

The DD does not do small bits all that well. The 2 main adjustments are the cut depth (the stop) and  how the bit is positioned in the holder.

Getting the latter set with the bit in the holder.  Have bit, loose enough to let the gripper pull the bit to the stop & set the  position.

As it is held tighten the bit holder. I made that mistake in the beginning, once pointed out, success was at hand.

What are you doing buying you are supposed to be making room for old cars ......... LOL
