Sometimes Cheap Tools can be fun.

This kinda strays away from the cars for a min to reflect on Tools. I am not a rich mechanic with the "Snap-On" truck on speed dial. However, I do understand the value of good quality tools, hence why most of my stuff is Canadian Craftsman, MasterCraft Pro Series, Husky and Dewalt. However there are some times, when just need a few things for a project NOW, little odds and ends. There is a place in Surrey called Bionca's Liquidation World. 1/2 of there stuff is Tools, 1/4 is Electronics and 1/4 is Household Stuff. Everything from cheap $20 Air tools, to trailer Parts. I went in there today to browse around for a few odds and ends.

Well this is what I came out with. That entire pile Gloves and needle nose pliers included came to a grand total of $21 bucks.

Gloves $5
Tape Measure 6ft AutoLock $1
Wire Brush Wooden Handle $1
Hose clamps, in Kit were $4
12pc Hos Clamp Set was $2
Wire wheel and wire drums, $1 each. (4 in total) $4
Cool Needle Nose Pliers, $4
Super Glue .50 cents

I had some serious fun with this. Its stamped Max Speed 4500 rpms. I figure whats the worst that will happen, it might fly apart and explode the wires. So I chuck it into a 24,000 RPM Air Die Grinder. (Insert Tim Taylor Power Grunt)

Remember that 4500rpm wire drum, it met my 24,000 rpm die grinder. And it Didn't blow up. Stretched a fair bit though, If the video won't open, pop over to and manually save the airgrinderwire video to your computer and watch it.

So the Record, it worked perfect was able to remove all the rust spots on the under carriage and I sprayed Trem Clad all over everything. (see the last page of my build thread in my sig)
85 Fiero GT, 4.9L V8 5spd with NX Nitrous Kit. Yes it's fast. My Home Page My V8 Fiero Build Thread Also Factory Yellow 88 Fiero GT
I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.
