    Like the subcooler

    Made a "Drain Pan Evacuator" out of a small bilge pump.

    I work with mostly duct board so I took a half piece of metal duct and had a different angle cut on either side to make transitions offsets and 90s. Then a few years back someone with a little initiative made one out of plastic and patented it. I was so ticked off. I paid them for my idea and have one in my truck.

    I'm making a nitrogen gauge protector. I know its not symmetrical, but my nitrogen gauges aren't symmetrical at this point because I don't take them off the bottle. I'm going to weld some nuts onto it and screw two of them together on the gauge and hopefully it will help. I know this could all be solved by me taking the gauges off, but I don't.

    Please bear with me as this is the first time I've tried to post a pic. Hopefully it is attached.

    I have a test cord that I made. It outputs 120v or 24v, and also has an option for a start winding when testing motors.

    Liking the ladder winch.

    How does it stand off from the building enough to winch up through?

    OR, is it a lift and rotate type of hoist?

    Push off with one hand. It works easier than it sounds.

    I made a oxygen sensor tool for a car I had, needed a deep slotted socket for it, I've made other auto tools that I can't think of off hand.
