  2. Can this be used for bulk loading fire caulking from a 5 gallon pail? I'm also using a follow plate going through about 15 gallons a day

    P2009 Trimmer

    It’s definitely a lube screw. My P2009’s head started rattling. Took screw out pumped some grease in . Good for now . I saw grease had come out around where head mounts. I can’t find info on what grease is used or how often . So seal must weep out grease till bearings fail. Too much grease creates heat and will cause seal to fail . It’s a pain to deal with at one year old. A better seal would fix .
  5. just purchased a power bank 1800 and was woundering if anyone has used it for a dj rig 2 powered speakers laptop,dj controller,and wireless microphone also a apc inline
  6. @Igor Pak the fein supercut is one of the best. The makita is in need of an update. Not bad just dated. I would go cordless if possible. cords are a pain even if you have power nearby.
  7. Good afternoon. I apologize in advance for my English, as I am from Russia, and I did not find an answer to my question on Russian forums. For myself, I stopped at Milwaukee-a great tool! Recently, I took the saw M18 2719-20 and Impact M18 2853-20 in my arsenal. I tried it in practice, the tool is incredibly powerful - what you need! But on inspection, the question arose: the saw has a small backlash, is this normal? Attached a video. And Impact sometimes works and it seems to fall asleep on the button does not respond, you have to either take out the battery or press the mode change - has anyone encountered this? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  8. The Carburetor is most likely gummed up from sitting its a side effect of ethanol in gas.
  9. Welcome to the forum. Take some time to look around and take in some of the good info you will find here.
  10. Then you can also braze or weld to attach. Or with two similar sizes (say attaching to socket) you could use.a wide shaft collar and set screws.
  11. Those are two viable leads. Thanks for the idea. It is indeed metal.
  12. Paul is right its probably not worth investing any money in repairs at this time. You can get the Harbor Freight Warrior drill for 34.99 and possibly even lower with a coupon. I would also look into Ryobi just because of the depth of tools offered.

    Dewalt D55151 issue

    Small Dewalt compressor D55151 I got from a buddy,been issue since new i guess,he just stored it away.After compressor has run and attempts to refill tank it just hums then breaker pops.I unhitched any air lines and still them same thing,took off black plastic shroud and noticed when compressor stopped if i tried to move motor over by hand with fan on back of motor there is a lot of resistance like piston stuck,this is the same with no air lines attached.If I spin it around a few times it loosens up and will fire right up,but the cycle repeats after it shuts off then tries to build pressure again.Kind of have to believe someone else has had same issue so any input great appreciated.When it runs it sounds completely fine,no odd noises etc.I have used this way for about a year and want to fix if possible.
  15. A. B. Chance. Part of Hubbell or Cooper now. That’s a wrench for line workers. Probably can get replacements from a lineman store. Around here that’s J Harlen.
  16. SBD sells Stanley as a “budget” brand and Dewalt as “premium”. Husky is also “budget”. First can you return broken ones for replacement? You can even return Harbor Freight tools. If not, skip it. I know you can return Husky and Dewalt. Not sure on Stanley. I’ll add more. First don’t ignore Harbor Freight or Northern. HF used to be Chinese junk. It’s fairly respectable now. Northern is “rich rednecks”. So just not HF, Lowe’s carries Craftsman which is another Stanley/Dewalt brand positioned midway between them. Husky is partly made by SBD, too. Let’s not forget Neiko and Tekton which are essentially Amazon house brands. I’d say they are midrange too. No issues with them either. You can save money on “sets” but they often give you a lot of poor quality tools in a set so skip these. Sorry that’s just how it is. Plus you get that stupid giant blow molded box that takes up tons of space and is utter garbage. Second here is the problem. You can never have enough tools. You will always run into some strange fastener or special situation. Start small with say just a good 3/8” socket set, an adjustable wrench, some screw drivers. Then as you get comfortable and need more, get more. Set a monthly budget. Put a running list on your phone. As you run into situations add things to your list. Then you can shop around and get a little at a time. You save money buying quality and getting just what you need, not a bunch of crappy tools and oddball bits you never use. Buy six point sockets. 12 points are easier to get on but on bad/stripped nuts six point sockets grip better. This separates a lot of cheap tools from cheap but good quality. Next we have the laser/painted/etched vs stamped question on the labels. If you can get it go with stamped but this is rare. ALL other options no matter what they say come right off if the socket runs on something. They talk up their laser etched stuff but none of my high end socket labels that are not stamped are visible after six months.’Finally impact vs nonimpact. Nonimpact sockets are thinner and get in tight spaces better. Impact sockets are almost indestructible. If you ever intend on getting an impact wrench just buy the impact sockets and adapters now. They will be black oxide, ugly as sin, and tough as nails. So very good for what they are meant for. In terms of ratchets this is the money spot. Shop around. Try them out. Look at the size of the head (thinner is better but raises price). Swivels can be nice but may make it harder to use. Extending handles are nice. There are dual head 3/8 & 1/4” heads. Handy. I have one. It does bulk it up though. Also get at least one breaker bar, longer is better. Get it I the biggest size sockets you use. You can always adapter down. Get an extension assortment. Ratcheting is nice...basically makes it a ratchet. Everything is interchangeable so maybe buy them all separate. Usually the ratchets that come in sets are crap. Sorry that’s just how it is. In wrenches you want combination wrenches unless you have some special needs. It’s more expensive but get ratcheting box ends now and thank me later. You will be glad you did. One of the interesting sets if you want to explore is Klein and Harbor Freight make double box end wrenches where just 4-5 have most sizes. Gearwrench is an American (Apex Tool Group) brand, mostly American made. While you are at it Crescent is a sister company/brand and makes great adjustable wrenches and pliers. Between the above three you can easily stay under $150 and have good quality stuff. Buy socket strips at HD and buy a tool box. On the wrenches I love a wrench roll. The Dickies brand one is really nice. I have both sizes but I only use the large. It holds all my wrenches SAE and metric with room to spare. In terms of tool boxes/bags I do electrical work so I have the electrician open top 12x12 bag. Fully loaded it’s almost uncomfortable to carry. Those giant 24” mechanics bags are insane. I have one strictly for my 1” to 2” wrenches. The sockets all fit in two Dewalt medium Toughsystem boxes. One for 1/4 and 3/8, one for 1/2” with impact wrenches in each plus a lot of adapters, Tory bits, hex bits, etc. Electrical service work requires an insane amount of tools, more than mechanics. We just don’t need as many really large tools. In screwdrivers they sell these huge sets but the reality is you need one 1/4” or 3/8” “beater” (Milwaukee or Dewalt impact is better), one 1/4” flat blade decent length, a good length #2 Phillips, maybe stubbies but a small specialty one is better, and a set of “precision” screwdrivers. Hardened tips can’t be beat so this is where Wiha, Milwaukee, Dewalt are all you need to look at. Harbor Freight has some good ones too. Get one of those Allen (hex) sets too. There are excellent and American made ones. Then there are regular, needle nose and maybe lineman’s pliers and diagonals. Again Crescent is a good name and reasonably priced without going German.
  17. Sounds like the switch if that’s where it came from. All motors even brushless will eventually fail, too. In drills it’s not worth the cost to replace. Especially when you are limping along on old NiMH batteries.
  18. Get a flat disc style sandpaper attachment. Then attach to that. If it’s plastic epoxy will work. If it’s metal need something more substantial. Also depending on what you are doing go with an impact or drill/driver instead and epoxy your thing to an appropriate diameter socket.
  19. I have a Tecumseh 6.5 lawnmower engine that was given to me.Suppositly it starts everytime.I replace the spark plug,air filter,fresh fuel and cleaned the coil and flywheel contacts.The carbuerator was to badly corroded to clean so it was replaced.Before nothing now it backfires thru the carb and rips the recoil rope right out of your hand any ideas.

    Ryobi Car Buffer

    Ryobi only makes a cordless buffer. For a true high speed polisher you will need to move up to Milwaukee, Makita, or Dewalt.
  21. Hey everyone, I was happy to find this forum. I have a bit of a strange question. I have a metal tube with threads on both sides (male and female). See attached picture. I need to attach this to a drill bit. The female threads will be facing out and the male threads will be closest to the drill bit. Any suggestions about how I should go about this? Thanks, Matthew
  22. Hello all, I have a Black & Decker 14.4V Firestorm Cordless Drill that has a burning odor immediately when pressed. I assumed it would be the brushes, but when I took it apart to check, it appears there are no brushes on this drill. The motor and clutch both don't have an odor, but the VSR Switch does have an odor to it. Since I've never encountered a problem with a burning odor that isn't the brushes, is it safe to assume replacing the VSR Switch would solve my problem? Is there something else that could be the problem? The actual part number for this drill is HP532. Thanks, Matt
  23. Awesome, welcome to the forum and the crew. Will be cool to see some of your work.

    Ryobi Car Buffer

    I'm looking for a ryobi car buffer, I've found the R18B-0, but I'm looking for something similar to the attached. Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  25. Wow, it might be easier to buy another tool. It is almost impossible to find those parts now, like trigger switch. You might check on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/p/1201534395 if you really want this model.
  26. Well i would recommend Stanley tool set. Purchased one before. Ergonomically designed, decent quality, meet ANSI specs.
  27. Wow, you better take it to the repair shop. There might be various reasons for that (bearring, gear, etc.). Is there any smell?
