Hi Fellas
I sure hope I'm not confusing anyone here as I am starting to get a little confused myself but here goes.I have asked the AS moderators if we could get a Tool Forum on AS.So to show that there would be support for one I asked members to reply to a the thread I titled NEW FORUM.There has been what I think is a great response to the suggestion.So as suggested I am going to start a thread in the Chainsaw Forum titled Tool Forum! I think this thread would get the most attention here and maybe the response will be good.
Hope this sit's well with you guy's.If not I guess I will here about it.
So this thread Tool Forum will be just that a Tool Forum.Go ahead and post your tool questions,aqquistions,tool reviews,what to buy ,what not to buy,repair questions concerning your tools,tradesman tools,diagnostic tools,handmade tools, which I think another member had got going somewhere,calibration equipment,hand tools,electric tools and the like.I know I am going to have a heck of a pile or questions to ask and am sure there will be others as well.Hopefully there will be responses to questions from very knowledgeable members here.As one member has already pointed out it may even save you time searching a bunch of other tool sites as well.
So all of you that replied to the previous thread New Forum this is the place now to be for anything tools.If you had a question raised already or a good tool find, Brad Morgan are you there,let's begin here and see what happens
Here's Hoping It Works Out!
Many Thanks
Lawrence

Heres my vac tester, mityvac there are some models that gauge pressure as well, this does not. I use my compressor at 8-10psi.



craftsman impact driver, saws just fall apart when they see it, long T-27 bit $8.
I find teh craftsman being one of the best choices, more powerful drivers are prone to snap screws more. always check them by hand to make sure there at the correct torq.



Here is a flywheel puller i got on ebay for mopeds. $15 or something




hope this is what you want on here.

best way to paint your saws, 150$ is all you need.



plus an oven, you can get regular ones free but this one fits under the bench and runs off the 20amp compressor outlet.



and another $100 for a poor mans sandblaster.



compressor is a must in any garage, you can keep it simple and cheep or expensive and elaborate.

I tried goign very cheep with HF regulators, BAD IDEA don't but em. all the bouls were cracked and leaked leaked hell.

let me know if you want any more info on anything. hope on on track with this thread.

Matt, tell me more about the Powder coat system? You like? As durable as the "Pro" jobs? Color selection? Got any pics of stuff you've done?

As you can tell I'm very interested in one.

Thanks!

page 8 or so is where I start talking about powder coating

http://www.arboristsite.com/showthread.php?t=122640&highlight=scorched

By pro job do you mean powdercoatign shop? same thing. I'm a noob at it but its not that hard just takes some time and a lot of prep.
Eastwood has 50+ colors, I used off white and its pretty close to Stihl Grey. They have any color you would need i'm thinking, ive herd you can mix powder but not sure. You can powder over old powder witch I did with the starter cover. It just looks like a imperfection up close.

how do you like the mini impact? I want to get a mini Milwaukee.

I would never want to be without one again, I now use 3 of them in the shop for everthing from running screws in and out to sockets on nuts and bolts. Flywheel pullers, clutch pullers and flywheel nuts and clutch carriers all get the impact drivers.

Gasket Cutting Punch Boehm Circle

One of my favourites is a gasket cutter - a set of hardened steel rings with sharp edges that can make perfect holes in gasket material.



This is punching out the bolt holes in a 07S carb gasket:



You can put two rings together in the punch to make washers. This is a production line for Tillotson fuel filter washers:



The tool means that gasket making is easy and accurate. With a couple of rolls of gasket paper (fuel resistant or not and various grades), I really don't have to worry about most gaskets.

That Boehm punch set would be the ultimate hand held manual punch set for the making of gaskets, looks like it is only available in the UK. Too bad for us over here in NA.
