  1. I'm betting we will see an m18 battery with 21700 cells. We are probably due for gen 3 m18 drills and impacts and it's rumored that there is a compressor and worm drive saw in the works too.
  2. I scored the new gen 2 m12 combo kit for $179 shipped and also picked up the boots for the gen 2 high torque impact and mid torque as well.
  3. MY favorite power tool would be a tie between the generation two Milwaukee high torque impact and the m12 soldering iron. My favorite hand tool would have to be the wera tool check plus.
  4. I ordered the new m18 rover floodlight today. Acme had a $20 off $100 sale.
  5. Here are a couple of my somewhat recent purchases. The new fuel ratchet is a massive improvement over the old one. I have no worries at all about breaking the head on this one under normal use. I also picked up the new Milwaukee generation two high torque impact and it is an absolute monster. When they say that it is a pneumatic replacement they are not kidding. I have done a few side by side tests and it is a tiny bit stronger than an Ingersoll Rand 2135timax at 175 psi.
  6. You can buy metabo online at acme tool. I'd imagine a local welding supply store would carry their grinders and other metalworking tools.
  7. This little gem showed up today. I also did some torque testing on it and it would not loosen a 3/4 inch bolt torqued to 600 ft lbs. I'll get a 7/8 bolt next week and try it again. It is still incredibly powerful though.
  8. I definitely will. I'll be doing extensive torque testing with it. We have a 3/4 drive torque wrench that can go up to 600 ft pounds. My grandpa is also ordering an independent front end setup for his 39 ford and I guarantee it will get used putting it together.
  9. Mine is pre ordered. I can't wait for it to get here. I know that there are a couple of projects it wil come in super handy for.
  10. I'll have our 3/4 drive torque wrench ready by then for torque testing.
  11. I just preordered the new Milwaukee mid torque impact from acme tool. It should ship on the 14 of February.
  12. I priced a gearwrench set through work and for a set similar to the Williams chrome set it is almost 500. I think I'd choke down the Shipping for the Williams set.
  13. Since it is AWD can it smoke all four tires at once? I doubt many people expect this car to be that fast.
  14. The shipping is a killer though. It's 55 to get it shipped to my place
  15. I think we have a gearwrench set on sale where I work. I'll check tomorrow and let you know what the price is.
  16. My card is primed and ready for when it's available. The 3/4 inch torque wrench is ready for torque testing too.
  17. Is it a valve guide install tool?
  18. I have used sunex and never had an issue with any of mine. I bought them around two years ago. If you dont need bigger 3/8 sockets here is a good set but it only goes to 19mm and 3/4.https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005MVB9Y8/ref=pd_aw_sim_469_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=W9TF723SVF0A9KRMD9TT&dpPl=1&dpID=61UYEqtwYfL I have these sets since they go all the way up to 22mm and one inch. Here is the metric set https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000LQDB86/ref=pd_aw_sbs_469_of_8?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=5DEPXRF52KJFQHSCV60J Here is the standard set. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000ROE4FQ/ref=pd_aw_sim_469_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=6NCVVH77SWED7Z4ZJQM8&dpPl=1&dpID=615z2yZEr4L
  19. I bought my grandpa that same metabo grinder for Christmas but it has the slide switch. We both love it. It runs very smooth and doesn't vibrate at all. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.
  20. I ordered mine on New Year's Day. I'll let you know if I get mine
  21. Knipex tools are like lays potato chips, you just can't have one.
  22. I ordered one online but it hasn't made it yet. I bet they didn't last long. Did you get one?
  23. I had to do a double take too. It really was that cheap
  24. Rural King came through again. I don't know why they had so much Milwaukee stuff marked down so low but I'll gladly buy it if they keep selling it.
