Yes, I am a Milwaukee fanboi, but once in a while, I'm into other brands. Wera, being another favourite.

I've got my sights on this........

https://chadstoolbox.com/6004-joker-...eid=5009c02d78

I've purchased Wera products from these folks before. With borders shut down, having the stuff shipped to Blaine for pickup is no longer an option. Shipping stuff here is just not worth it. In any case, KMS carries Wera products, so when I'm there today, gonna see if they have it, or at least bring it in. KMS didn't carry that much Wera stuff back in the day, but have really started expanding their stock in recent years. So glad they did.



the video above shows how the self adjusting 6004 Joker Wrenches work. Starts at around 1:28

Well, I went to KMS and bought me a metric 11 piece Wera Joker set. MSRP is like $349.99. No way I'm going to pay that kind of money for it. I asked the counter person if they ever go on sale. While he was looking up the item on his computer, I quickly did a google search and found out that IHL back east has the set on sale for $239.00. Turns out the set is also on sale at KMS Tools for the same price. Somebody didn't put up the sale price on the hanger. Anyway, check out the review. Worth every penny, IMHO. Especially at the sale price.

Couldn't find a good review of the Wera Koloss. Starts at 7:00. It is one hefty ratchet with a fricken hammer built in. And yes, I have the Koloss. Don't think I'll ever need the centering pin attachment.

Not really a tool, but different types of drill bits for different uses.


My favourite bit is the countersink bit. I purchased a Viking/Norseman (Made in USA) countersink bit and it is amazing. I've used all kinds of countersinks, but the Viking is, by far, the best I've used.

On Page 102. TYPE 82-UB 82o PILOT LESS COUNTERSINK

It's real pretty looking too. Blackgold, ftmfw. Not 100% sure of its effectiveness, but sure looks pretty. Looks is everything, right?

This guy does great reviews and comparisons of tools.

Cannot make fun of Harbor Freight stuff.

I want to know where I can buy the Evolution blade............

And the Big Blue = Why?

I have this walnut tree in the garden. It popped out of the ground about five and a half years ago. No idea where it came from. Probably squirrel or bird dropped the seed/nut onto the ground and it took hold. Anyway in that little time, the walnut tree grew to over 30 feet tall and 20 to 25 feet wide. It got so big, the plants in my garden wasn't getting any sun or rain. I had to cut the branches back. I used my Milwaukee Sawzall to do the job. Damn, it took my sons and I quite some time to cut of the branches. After it was all said and done, I was stuck with all these branches. I wasn't looking forward to cutting them up to smaller pieces. I decided to get me a Milwaukee M12 Hatchet. It's a mini chainsaw. Damn, it's the perfect tool for this type of job. The only thing I'm not happy about is how difficult it is to start the thing (switch and lock button location). It's also a bit messy (oil), but I can live with that. Adjusting the chain tension, which is crucial, is simple to do.

Had this brake fluid change kit for a while and couldn't wait to try it. It requires air pressure that can be provided from a plain tire. Hook it up to a spare tire. I flushed all four corners and lost maybe a tiny fraction of the tire pressure. The air used basically pushes the fluid through, so no significant loss of tire pressure. I got the complete set for the cost of two, maybe three, visits to a garage to have it done. Edit: I purchased the kit that doesn't have the Chrysler adapter, 'cause I'd rather have no car than a Mopar (just kidding - just a play on words from "Mopar or no car," lol).

Worth every penny. I purchased it at a limited time discount from them. Locally developed, too. New West.
