Also swung by HF to pick up some rubber gloves for painting, and got some 1/2 inch drive impact socks...

It's laid out, and the front bumper is not letting the frame completely touch the ground....Thanks for saying something, now my OCD is going to make me remove my last sticker...

Sorry. My OCD picked up on it and I couldn't resist. :(

I can't recommend that mityvac syringe.

It's junk after the either brake fluid or gas, im gonna guess the gas but could be either.

Whats the point of paying almost $30 dollars for it if I can't even use it for gas or brake fluid? It's a damn fluid extractor. Maybe they have a fine print somewhere saying you can't use em with all fluids.

Dont care either way really. Not buying another one. I'm just gonna have to buy one of those big tall extractors. I know those work well, maybe have a clean and a dirty one.

I nerded out at the thrift store a couple weeks ago.
I spotted the JC Penny Dwell / Tach meter for a massive $2.00.
It will probably never get used.

Then in a different area I found the super cool little belt sander.
Plugged it in and it works like a champ.
Like a goober, I did not take a photo of the actual tool just the cool box.
The price tag is still affixed to the box and it says this was a $59.99 tool back when it was new.
PRE-BAR CODES BOYS!!!
I think we found this one to be around a 1981 model.

My Dad had a Heathkit dwell meter and tach.

Wish I had that, although dwell cannot be set on a HEI. Still.

Picked up another creeper to go along with my Lisle that I've had for forty years. It says Crew Line 44" on it, made in China of course. I like the larger six wheels and tilt-up headrest which the Lisle doesn't have. Wasn't looking for another creeper but I literally found it laying alongside the road while I was out walking this morning. Can't complain about quality too much when things are free.

Also found a couple pipe wrenches in a burnt building I was cleaning up. Owner said take them. Was able to clean up the red one, works great now. Still working on the other 2, but I think I can get then working again. Red one was buried in the dirt, so it didn't get burnt, but it was rusty and packed with rust.
Wire wheel cleaned it up well. The other ones are packed with dirt and burnt, so well see.

Been looking for a vintage Craftsman tool chest for about a year or so, ever since I picked up a nice top box at an auction. Everyone that I looked at was either overpriced or only had 5 drawers or 4 drawers and a storage bay at the bottom. Found this one at a yard sale today for $50. No dents and even had the key!

Also picked up a nice plunge router and bits from the same sale for another $50. Been wanting to upgrade my old router for one that takes 1/2” bits.

Finished cleaning up the pipe wrenches. Came out pretty good. They all work great now.
I oiled them after to keep the rust off. Need to make a wooden handle for the small one still.
