    I went crazy one day and bought a Makita 36v(2 batteries) hedge trimmer on a pole motor down low. $1400 but I was sick of climbing a ladder on a sloped driveway and leaning over the hedge with my shitty Ryobi mains powered hedge trimmer. Ive spent way too long recovering from injuries to add the risk of gardening to motorcycles.

    You can buy a remote chainsaw attachment. Haven't needed it. Yet.

    Merry birthday to me
    I have these on the way.
    Both won their respective shootouts on the project farm youtube channel. You are never left wondering which tool or item is the best with the way this guy tests stuff.

    (I like the look of the holding function of this set)

    Unbelievable tough screw drivers. I like the thought of my tools outlasting me and going to my kids. Some of my best tools are from my late fathers collection.

    Project farm link, he sets up amazing rigs to test shit. I always check his channel when I'm in the market for tools n such.

    From the same dude that had one of the swag bench to suit the portable bandsaw.
    Sorry re the quality its a screenshot off Utube
    he had made these a hinge set up for the grinder and a trailer hitch set up for the vice.
    I have the space but the ability to move the big vice and tilt out the ginders is pretty appealing
    i intend to use just RHS and telescope the tubes as hitch's and receivers are a bit spendy for what they are

    Allen keys are nice but spendy.

    I have grind marks and heatshrink bands to denote my queer size spanners and sockets, like 13 and 15, like eurobikes have.

    Have you tried JIS screwdrivers? Work better even in Philips screws, but especially on anything Japanese cross head.

    I hate working on cars, but won't pay someone to change oil. It's such a faff compared to my van which you can just climb under, no sheild to take off. But the impact wrench made taking the shield off and replacing it easy. Then I dropped the sump plug into my drain bucket with the hole in the top.

    So fav tool of the day was magnet on a stick. Hurray for magnet.

    reminds me of a funny (didn't seem so at the time though) that I did very early into my apprenticeship at GGH.Tasked with draining the engine oil of a Cat D8. The drain plug is an 1' square socket, the drain hole would be about 1 1/2" diameter. Lacking the correct tool to put onto my 1/2" drive bar, I had this brilliant idea of using the 1" drive impact wrench, a big heavy two handed compressed air jobbie, to loosen the plug. Worked, too but between getting the plug out, dumping the wrench and getting the drain tin under the flood, about most of the 8 gallons of dirty black series 3 -30 ended up on me. Never tried that trick again.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Yesterday's "Tool of the day"

    Lawn mower got a birthday yesterday (grinder to the blades) and a bolt was snapped off on the underside stub which the blade affixes to.


    Cheapest bearing puller set I could find when I made my 2T expansion chamber un-denter a while ago.

    Made a shit job dead easy. Pulled the rusted on keyed boss from the drive shaft with ease. It meant I could drill out the fucked bolt in a drill press instead of underneath the mower with a battery drill. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...64770634b2.jpg

    Was handy for this other contraption I Bodged together.

    Can get around 500psi before the seals start extruding themselves. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...65bc1210e9.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...7b902f9d0e.jpg

    So that's a water pump with added air backup? Air only is quite dangerous.

    why aren't they different colours like the old days, you brought coloured allen keys yet it's easier the see the sizes than with a screwdriver in a tool belt.
    dumb like the american paper money being all the same colour

    Yea it allows me to run either/or.

    The air pump method I have a schrader valve at one end and use the bucket pump to seal the other end. When using the mapp torch I leave the air pump plugged in to give me a gauge on pressure. I only use that setup for getting out tight dings with a hammer and mapp torch. You are right, air only method is dangerous. I keep below 40psi and use safety squints...

    I mostly use just the plumbers bucket pump and 100% hydraulic/water to straighten pipes and remove most dings. That's good enough for hard enduro pipes

    Way back when I was interested in model steam engines - boilers were hydraulically tested to double the working pressure. If the boiler failed with a hydraulic test, then there was a "click" and water all over the floor. If they failed with air or steam the results were explosive and spectacular.
