Too handy, Brian. The shop portion of my pole shed is 1100 sq ft with 16ft ceilings. The fork lift enabled me to pack it like a sardine can...

Yep, as time goes by things change don't they! I can't believe what a hard time I have seeing stuff under a dash. I can get in there no problem, I can twist and turn with my feet up over the seat just like when I was a youngster but damned if I can see anything when I get there! I have some prescription reading glasses out in the garage, as well drug store magnification ones and I will forget them every time until AFTER I am all twisted up under the dash and I can't move my head for my bi-focals to work. Grrrrrr

Times have changed. The family dynamic went from brady bunch to jerry springer.

My girlfriends kids and my brothers two rays of sunshine are cute. 7 and 8 , but they cannot even sit and watch a movie. So switchy.

Kids are the best, specially when they'll do something that is off the charts.

1Gary I got my two stage 60 gallon compressor used.I.R. said they don't build cast ion pumps like that anymore which is a industrial pump.Tested out good with full recovery in 4 minutes.Needed some small parts and eventual I bought a new 220 motor for it.I.R. told me with my use I should be able to pass it on to my grandkids. Found out on those because of the vibrations you can only use a liquid filled pressure gauge.

Richiehd I guess one of my most used tools is Identafix. I use this several times a week. It has saved me hours of diagnosis time.

painted jester In the 50s & 60s :
You know even in the city's school kids had pocket knives, it was a normal thing and when of age to be responsible it was a good gift from father to son!!! Look at boy-scout's we all had a boyscout knife!! I don't recall when they were banned in schools but blue-genes and T shirts and horse shoe cleats were banned and knives weren't! every boy could have a small pocket knife in school !!! Here they expelled a little kid for cutting a play gun out of paper and pointing the piece of paper at kids and saying bang your dead!!!! LOL Its called no tolerance law by the school board! No more playing cowboy during recess LOL the intelligence of politics LOL
