This has been a quiet year but...
A bunch of new 1/2 drive, short, metric impact sockets, Williams brand, to replace the worn ones that came with a set from JC Whitney circa 1989, now I have good ones from 10mm to 36mm. The 15, 17 and 19 had the most wear:-) You can order them as singles from McMaster-Carr, www.mcmaster.com.
Williams is a supplier for Snap-On and the Williams sockets are the same as the Snap-on industrial brands. The original 1/2 drive impact set was bought CHEAP to support a FJ60 reengine project. Ended up with a used forklift motor, with weber, headers, high flow exhaust. My step-brother drive the original engine after the water pump failed until the motor seized, cracked the head, warped the manifolds and burned out every last engine management sensor.
A metric thread gage from .25mm to 2.5mm thread range, maybe now I can get the threads from the grease fitting on the front u-joint right!
A couple of used machinist tool boxes from a local auction, and 8" and 12" dial and vernier calipers, metric and standard, some have already been regifted to fellow mechanics/machinists. Boxes are in the process of being cleaned up and refilled with drill bits, easy outs, mills, gauges, burrs, files and other tools of the trade.
A 240 volt, 5,000 watt, wall/ceiling mount electric garage heater from Northern Tool, now to get some 2" angle to make the wall mount and conduit pieces to wire it in on a new 30 amp circuit. This is being mounted over the wife's work area to swing from her bench to her woodworking tools. Her workspace is almost 40' from the potbelly stove.
A trailer to pull behind the ATV, I have some culvert work to do, and this is a great way to move both 3/4" gravel, native stone, and of course tools.
A new Yamaha Grizzly 700 4x4 ATV:-)
A good new year to all...
