    It's funny how a clean maf sensor affects performance , it now feels like the supercharger is making 8lbs boost as it has the 8lbs tune on it , felt like I had the 4lbs pulley prior !!!

    Tired. Recut a piece of road through a wash that blew out years ago. Came in early to pick up the last of my med prescriptions then go back up in the morning. Got the dozer for a week so it may be some pretty fancy road and go back a lot further than planned....guess it's better to give them more than they asked for so they won't come back so soon.

    considering a bumper sticker...
    I was getting partial to what Toyota calls a side step bar, that comes black with powder coated tubing and black plastic steps, what do you think? the same bars come with chrome and plastic steps.

    OK Hive mind ,

    Since most in here are fairly hands on and know which end of the screw driver to use and the correct screw driver to use lol
    I have had a craftsman screw stick powered by versa stick rechargeable batteries for a very very long time. It is failing I can still get batteries but the internals are making ominous noises . I like it for taking small items apart and reassembly especially electronics .
    I am looking at this as a replacement https://www.lowes.com/pd/DEWALT-Lit...MI-9qdhPCE3wIVj8DICh0W1QlDEAQYBCABEgI_s_D_BwE

    Does anyone have one or another model they have used and can recommend.?

    PSA: Going to Ace hardware and when the young lady wandering the aisles asks if she can help you find something ..Be careful how you say or phrase what you ask or they turn bright red and stutter for a second.

    Ace Lady: Sir can I help you ?
    Sir: Yes I am looking for a Bottoming Tap 4-40 NC
    Ace Lady: Turning Red excuse me ???
    Sir : I need a Bottoming tap sized 4 - 40 NC....It is at this point Sir notices said young lady is bright red and she sort of stutters / stuck for words.
    Ace Lady: I am not sure I understand what you are asking for ....
    Sir: Can you show me where the small size Tap and Dies are ( They are not in the same place as the others as they are tiny so theft item I guess)
    Ace Lady : Ohhhhhhh yes sure follow me ..
    Sir: I have to ask you are as red as a stop light what did you think I asked ????
    Ace Lady : I just didn't understand you I am really sorry said while still a shade of red ..

    I get what I need and roll out and pay , I got to my truck and then it struck me lol As I am sure it probably has struck most of you by the shade of red she turned. I had a pretty good laugh on my way home,,

    So be Ladies and Gentleman be aware todays younger folks have some terms for the oldest Adult entertainment in the book that may or may not be in the for front of your mind when you ask for something.

    Have two, The problem is there is not enough tension on the threads to let the ratchet work on most small electronics mainly computers. They use fine thread and coarse thread depending on what you are mounting hard drives , motherboard , expansion cards they are coarse thread but only about 4 threads. The fine thread ones are optical drives and sockets etc , they still do not provide enough tension to let the ratchet work.
