    Rear brake caliper piston wedged

    Was replacing rear rotors on my truck, had the caliper off and sitting on the axle. When buttoning things back up, noticed the piston was almost all the way out of the caliper and was wedged a little off angle. Tried tapping/coaxing it back in with a c-clamp, no luck. Removed the brake line...

    ARB valve caps no good

    Let's say your boy goes to work for an ARB vendor, and let's say his first check he wants to get something from the shop, and let's say that something is ARB valve stem caps. Then let's say we fast forward a few months (about enough time for a dissimilar metals reaction to take place), you will...

    Storing gas power equipment

    Been poking around online at best methods for winter storing gas power equipment (2 stroke weeder, chainsaw; 4 stroke mower) and of course there's polar opposite opinions. Run them dry, don't EVER run them dry, etc. @D'Animal or others in the know, what do you do for longer term storage?

    Impact socket loose/wear?

    While doing some work on the truck last weekend had a new one, the impact socket I've used for years (22mm for the 100), the lug nut bound up in it. Had to tap a couple of them out from the drive side. Just need a new socket or maybe the lug nuts are rounding a little from the years? I know...

    Tool battery wth - back to life

One battery decided to stop charging past two bars last week and the charger instantly blinks red. Look online, find a vid of a guy, also with B&D batts, saying...

    Portable shop heater

    Simple question, which style works better? I've heard from buddies that love both. Seems like the can would be more ambient heat and the torpedo would be directional, but any first hand use of one or the other people have preferred?

    Time for my own starting issue

    Appears it's finally time for my own starting issue. As I've watched similar threads over the years here haven't noticed anything with these symptoms. It's cold here finally, teens at night.

    Adding shower to existing tub

    Our 70's house main bathroom oddly doesn't have a shower, just a tub. Adding one in for teenage kids so they'll stop using ours. Pulled out the surround and drywall and am looking at this. Am I correct in thinking I can put pull the top plug, thread in an adapter and pipe, run that up to a...

    HF floor jack leaking

    My 10 year old HF floor jack is leaking pretty good. I wiped it down to see if I could get a read on where specifically is leaking, it appears to be from where the jack body presses into the base. I doubt there's a seal in there, seems like it would just be press fit? I thought it would more...

    Neighbor brought me his Echo PB251 blower. It would idle and occasionally be able to throttle up, but once it was at max, it would die out. I figured it was the carb and ethanol gas. Ordered a replacement kit off Amazon, replaced: - carb - spark plug - fuel lines - fuel filter - air filter...

    Ten year old Honda mower was starting to have issues idling, surging up and down and sometimes dying when dropping the throttle to idle. I poked around several forums that talked about rebuilds, priced it out locally - $50-60, and then came across one post mentioning just replacing the whole...
