I've been using the Jet Jumbo Handle screwdrivers for years. I like the classic hard plastic handles, they take up the least possible room in my bag and slip in and out easily.
I do swap out the...
That sounds like the Zipka or maybe the e+LITE.
More likely the Zipka since the other takes watch batteries.
Bezel up if you don't want to blind yourself clipping it to a cap.
18650 cells offer great run time and cost savings because they're rechargeable. (I second the Panasonic recommendation)
Has your prescription changed a lot since you got your last pair of glasses?
When I got my current pair I took my old ones to Costco and got them to put a polarized coating on them. I think it was...
I've been using an i4 for over a year and an i2 for a few months without a problem.
If you want to stay away from the Nitecore/Jetbeam then I think the next most frequently recommended is from...
Yes. That light will shut itself off when the cell hits 2.7V.
Just be careful with the spare cell that it doesn't short out against anything and you should be OK.
Also pay attention to protection...
I don't know what spray pattern those put out but wouldn't one of those Windex sprayers do just about the same job with the added benefit of a happy wife at home with clean windows?
cr123 gives higher voltage and (in many lights) this will mean higher output.
They also cost more and may be hard to find in your area. I've got a bunch of cr123 lights and like them...
If you have to go detachable Zebralight makes good products. Armytek also makes lights in the same format.
For just a straight up headlamp I don't see myself giving up my Petal Myo (R)XP any time...
A 1/4 & 5/16 ratcheting wrench. It's short and slim so I can keep it in a pocket and not even know it's there.
Husky 66604 (No longer sold by Home Depot) or VIM HBR5.
I've only got one backup...
Could anyone who's received their strap let us know which one they are sending out?
I doubt it's the tech series
I hope it's the contractor series
I'm afraid it's the pouch shoulder strap
I'm with you as to liking lights.
Just got a new one to try out and realized that I was carrying 7 on me that day.
You can try but I wouldnt bother with mats made by anyone else.
I used some cheap ones for years but nothing has been as comfortable or has held up as long as that one (Mine's branded by Kuny's)
I like Rigid.
No impact, compact, high RPM, lots of torque. Has a chuck so I can use my step bit as well.
Most of the compact drills will have a fatter grip, that's where the battery has to go.
Thanks, I just got back from buying it.
Turns out only the handle is Goss
The tips are UniWeld, Don't remember the model number for the head but it's got size 22 tips. The tips themselves are...
Hoping someone can quickly ID this.
My boss has decided that I need my own torch set up and I've found a guy selling locally but with the red handled torch and red regulator they've included this...
Thanks for starting that up again.
Cant order right now but funds will be allocated. Eventually.
If you want more flashlight info than you thought existed check out Candle Power Forums
My personal recommendations are:
Big light, very bright, belt holster: FourSevens Quark 123^2 Turbo X...
Bah, we're just waiting for the rest of the world to finally give up on those silly philips and awful slotted.
You and I have a much different experience then.
The jump from my 200lm oLight (brightest cr123 light under $70 at the time, really loved the beam profile) to my 400lm FourSevens over 3 years is...
I can agree with the "buy once, cry once" mentality but then where's the fun in shopping for something newer/brighter every 2-5 years?
Pipe wrenches? Not a lot of innovation there. Buy the best...
I had the same problem with my first bag.
I ended up sending it in for a broken zipper at about the same time.
I buy pants that have internal pockets at the knees to slip in neoprene knee pads.
I think my next one might be the Paladin 540
Made by SOG and has a real wire stripper
1) Furnace hitting high limit. Found someone had dry fit a small brick wall inside the duct work to try and force air through specific runs. I pulled 8 bricks out of there.
2) Thanksgiving evening...
What does your day-to-day include? Employee/Employer, Commercial/Residential, Install/Service?
I love that flashlight, but I went with the flat tail cap.
As you can see my holster hasn't held up very well. How about yours?
I'm just curious, who makes those gas valves with that cap? I've never come across one
Just a fun thread. Pictures encouraged.
Every morning these are the things I load up with before heading out.
Residential service tech.
On my belt:...
A coworker has the yellowjacket and we found that it wasnt lighting up the leak spots I'd already found. When we looked at the LEDs 3 of them were UV and two of them were blue. After we covered up...
12v Compact drill: Rigid
18v Hammer drill: Milwaukee at the moment. Likely to switch to Bosch when it dies.
I think you'll have trouble finding something that will do #2 as well as #8, as well as #4 and #6.
Something that handles PDFs well usually doesn't come cheap. Anything able to act as a USB host...
Started with a pair of these last winter and now have a bunch.
They're made for hiking so should stay in place and...
I've been wearing 5.11 TacLite Pro pants for almost 2 years and really like them. The thin knee pads hardly show and do a reasonable job.
When I know I'll be spending a lot of time on the floor I...
I think the number one answer is eyes/hands on the heat exchanger (let it cool first ;) ).
There are different techie ways to try for the same result but nothing as reliable and effective.
Just made the same switch two days ago. Mine due to a busted zipper on the veto (need to send it in for warranty - 7 months old)
The only difference is my bag has the 'Kunys' logo instead.
Leatherman Crunch and Falkniven P3 (but with yellow plastic).
As back-up when I need to 'abuse' a blade I've got a Kershaw Needs Work that has stood up to everything I've done to it.
In job training or in school?
If school then go cheap. In school I tried to buy an expensive meter and wound up with a very nice meter that doesnt do what I need in my current job.
After I was...
I'm a fan of the Cooper-Atkins products.
I use a pad like that as well. At the store I get them there seem to be two densities, a nice soft one and a firm one. Do not get the soft ones, you'll sink right through them in no time. The firmer...
Main set up:
I just bought this guy:
I like that I'm not messing around with a cord and detaching the leads from my meter all the time.
According to a recent York training session we will need to be able to test for Duty Cycle to determine between problems with the communicating gas valve or the board.
Of those 3 meters the SC56...
Couldnt be happier with my Petzl Myo XP.
It does have the batteries on the back (3x AA - lasts a long time and easy to replace) and the wire you dont like but I've only had a problem with it once in...
I dont know what you are using to read your pdfs but I've found Goodreader to be very very good for this.
I'm currently carrying 70mB of manuals on my iPhone. I dont have to refference them often...
It depends on your use for the tool.
I have no use for impact in my normal day and get along perfectly well with my Rigid 12V Titan. I've used the Milwaukee after getting the Rigid and didnt like...
I am very happy with my Petzyl Myo XP.
It's not a cheap light, I paid about $80 for mine, but it's very well built and has an excellent warranty (3 yr).
It's bright. I rarely use it on its...
Thank you for checking in. A couple posts after that one I did say that the 24v tester was working but unfortunately could not edit my original post.
I would have liked to change my post as the...
The SC56 reads micro amps just fine, but only in the micro amp setting. If you turn the switch to read amps from the clamp it breaks the connection and the furnace will stop on a 'no flame' error.
Same boots as the summer but with:
