    You kinda need a mix of all three, depends entirely on what part you're working on. In my experience buy a complete deep set and then buy regular or shallow independently, depending on when you run into needing em

    Regretfully we have a customer that was chomping at the bit for a dual circuit pump that could run off either an aux tank or the one apart of the powerpak. He told casappa to just send us what they had in stock because their build time leads were way too long. Not the first time he's shotgun blasted a solution but normally we can pull something out of our assets to make what he buys work.

    This is not one of those times lol


    Thank you for your help with the maths, it's greatly appreciated

    I've gotten a ton of use out of my harbor freight, regular depth ones. The deep ones are nice too, but I'd get the regular ones first.

    Get the regular set 1st and then deep when you can.

    The boss was in the airforce during Vietnam with the job of sneaking behind enemy lines blowing up our planes and helicopters to make sure tech didn't fall in the wrong hands.


    We've done some "iffy" things in the past to fulfill customer requests lol

    The amount of hacked together stuff that is in service all over the world is truly terrifying. And thats just the mechanical stuff, it gets nightmarish once you dive into software.

    @turbodb put together a list of tools. Use that to see what sockets you're likely to need for the work you expect to do: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...ckets-and-wrenches-for-1st-gen-tacoma.481748/

    Personally, I started with a vintage Craftsman 1/2" ratchet set (non-impact sockets) and breaker bar I got for a nice price off Craigslist and then added a deep impact socket set.

    I don't have an impact driver right now, but my thinking is that if something's too tight to fit a deep socket, the impact probably wouldn't fit anyway. There are exceptions of course, but that's what individual sockets are for :)

    Having seen what I have seen in construction/mechanical/electrical lines of work it scares me what you programmers could do

    I see wiring as the "explainittomelikeim5" version of stringing code together. And the neglect I've seen in the panel shop from licensed union electricians has me :lalala:



    Makes me want my house I build to be as tech free as it possibly can be lol

    That place imports the most awesomest vans from Japan.. given their condition and the amount of paperwork they go through to make em US legal "kinda" justifies the price

    That Fire truck is on another level tho

    Same. I have some tech in my house, but its all locally controlled, as little cloud stuff as I can manage.


    Similar reason why I like my taco so much, its entirely manual. Even the AC controls are cable actuated :laughing:
