    Forget the dash temp gage. Do you get nice hot air out of the vents and does the upper radiator hose get hot? The dash gages are problematic on older trucks. Mine didnt work for the first year of my ownership until I figured out where the...

    g-man replied to the thread SEARS Biting The Dust.
    The Craftsman website says "A STOCKING RETAIL PARTNER" will replace any tool with with a # starting with CMMT or older model starting with a 9 NO PROOF OF PURCHASE NECESSARY. This in not a discussion about Craftsman quality I just want to...

    g-man replied to the thread SEARS Biting The Dust.
    Recently while visiting my local Ace hardware I asked if I could return a Craftsman tool. The clerks immediate response seemed defensive. "Did you buy it here?" I replied ..."no, I'm just asking a 'what if' question." "Well if you bought it...

    g-man reacted to PAToyota's post in the thread Harbor Freight coupons with Like Like.
    Used a few coupons this weekend and thought I'd share: As mentioned before, I used the first one for a set of the snap-ring pliers the other week. I'm reasonably impressed for the price. That coupon is still valid. The second one for the...

    i bought some of the small red magnets and agree they are very weak. Now trying some of the larger and more powerful yellow Berger magnets I hope they do better

    Dremel tool. Cut the old bearing and pulled it out with needle nose pliers. Not the best plan but it worked.

    Glad to see this thread is staying alive and that members are posting up their experiences with items from HF. I did check out some YT videos. May have to go back and look for the "F" style welding clamp. Looks like it would work well for...

    Yeah they are great for their general consumables. I have used them for lots of stuff like wire wheels, flap discs, etc. and never had issues. They also sell some of the overstock type stuff from bigger brands like Meguiar's, WD40, etc. so do...

    g-man reacted to joebattle1's post in the thread i wanna go V8 with Haha Haha.
    Bronco! My Neigbor bought me this for Xmas. He’s a great guy so I didn’t throw it at him. I just had to smile and nod. Even my wife looked at me like “don’t throw it at him”. He followed it up with... “can’t wait to see the pic of them side by...

    They've been stepping up their game lately. Their older Pittsburgh, Central Pneumatic, and such are still sort of the "disposable" lines, but the newer lines are at least comparable to what you get at the other "big box" stores. As noted in other...

    Their wrenches and particularly sockets are pretty good these days. I'm not a pro but weekend warrior so not paying for Snap On. I don't see the need to buy Craftsman over HF latest offerings. (There's still junk - like the 3/4" drive socket...

    HF just came to town near me. I was and still am somewhat excited. Their U.S. General tool boxes have good reviews and for prices less than other big box stores looks like you get a no frills somewhat commercial grade box. Last week I went in...

    g-man reacted to ntdb's post in the thread How to dispose of a full tank of gas with Like Like.
    I took @FJ60Cam’s advice and posted it on CL and I now have a couple of people lined up to drain the tank for me! I’m very glad everyone is enjoying the thread. 🙈

    not only will zip-tying it in a loop keep it from hitting. But you'll be glad you left a longish hose on there whenever you need to remove the caliper for any reason. You will have room to move it around and hang it from the shock tower. I...

    Just ordered one. Looks like it's just what I was looking for. Thanks man. FYI, it's for drive shaft hardware. I swap rear drive shafts pretty often during wheeling season from "street shaft" to "rock shaft" and getting them loose with a standard...

    Single stage is fine. Prob less expensive. A pint will cover that easy. And for primer you can get away with a decent spray can from your automotive paint dealer. If that's freeborn red ..a stock color, the color code should be on the vin...

    grind the paint off around the holes, weld in new discs and fill the holes. Agreed .023 and small spots working around then back in between the spot welds with more. Then skim it with filler/hardener and a squeegee. D/A it with 80, 120 etc to...
