Yeah. I had received an email from a poster and when I went to open that link, I received a message saying I could not open it. Also, how do I get to a listing of forum members? As you can probably tell, I am not too computer saavy.

You have a good point there my friend. I never looked at it that way.

I have recently been using some Kobalt tools and they are impressive! I bought a set of 3 "Channel Lock type" pliers and they seem to be as good as any I have used, the teeth are not soft nor do they seem to chip. I put a couple of sockets to the impact wrench test and they held up as good as most pro sockets, whether they will grip as good or not I can't say but they are definitely not a sloppy fit like most cheap sockets. Screwdrivers are really good but I have not tried the wrenches, some look ok but others look a bit cheaply made. Overall it looks as if Kobalt may be a very hard to beat tool for the price plus Lowes has some decent sale prices sometimes.

You and I think alike. And be sure to mail them a letter ( a real letter) and tell them that. You may make the difference in the next board meeting when they talk about upping the profits by going overseas.
