    Cool deal on the battery term kit, guys. I’d love a cordless wire crimper. But of a price $1500 up.... not this guy. There is no way in hell I’d ever recoup the monies spent unless l started building kits for sale. Might be picking up a hydraulic one in the next few weeks myself. Have found a few that might fit the bill for under a buck fiddy.

    Ask @ilubtimmyhos which crimper he has. I’ve borrowed it before and it worked great and I think it was only around $50.

    Rite rite. I’ve found one with about 15 dies in it. From 00 (2/0) down to the smaller sizes. Also has 6 half sizes. I’ll shoot him a message if I can remember.

    Thanks.

    I have both of those. If you were to only get one, I would get the one from Harbor Freight. You can be kind of limited in hammer swinging range.

    Shoulda seen me trying to use that thing to crimp my OEM battery cables while they were still attached to the truck. The battery is not a good hammering surface.

    This makes sense coming from the guy running potts with nerf bars.

    Safety racoon is moving into my garage.

    Actually, I think safety racoon and my wife might be one and the same.

    Edit: I don't think you could safely call those nerf bars. They were steps masquerading as sliders.

    I do. I give her crap because when I met her I thought she was all brave and self-reliant and stuff. Then when we got married I find out she's a big wimp and asks me to do stuff all the time.

    You know it's something bad if I say something about it. I'm a safety 3rd or 5th kinda guy.

    I think a lot of my safety third attitude comes from having done it as a living. When time is money, you tend to take some short-cuts. And safety is typically the first thing to go.

    I'm a former tech as well. I've seen the results of acid that's supposed to be on the inside on the outside.

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    A story I love to tell about her: We were in Vegas a few years ago and they have a zip line that runs down the old strip (Fremont Street). It was really cool because it run underneath this canopy that's erected over the street that has a light show constantly going on it. We paid like $60 per person and lied about my weight to get on this thing. You go to the top of a parking garage and step over the wall onto scaffolding so you can strap into the zip line. And it's a sitting version of it. I knew, once we stepped onto that scaffolding, my wife was going to wimp out. And sure enough we get up to the jumping off point and she's about to turn around. I totally guilted her into doing it.

    We get done and I realize they take photos of you while you're careening down this thing. There's mine. I'm not huge on heights, but like thrills. I look like a kid at Christmas in my photo. And then there's my wife's photo. Sheer terror on her face. And to top it off, her huge, black, granny purse is hanging below her. I bought that photo right then and there and have it hanging in the house.
