My intro"Fuera de Servicio"

Recommended Posts

What up crew, I've been around for a while but have never introduced my self. My name is Junior Salas and yes, I'm a tool-aholic. I currently live on the boarder of California and Oregon, and work for a strawberry outfit. I'm the trim shed manager and special projects coordinator. Do everything from running the production with 600 people, building improvements and special projects. And like you guys, I too love TIA. This is just the beginning of my intro. https://youtu.be/R-lywKfTCA0

Thanks Kruton, I wasn't sure when I ordered it but with the black trim and black lineX top made fall in love at first sight. Putting the TIA sticker on it was like putting a cherry on top.[emoji2]

love the green bro, my first car was a very similar colour, 1978 Ford MkII Ford Escort with a black vinyl roof...happy days! It don't matter if everything aint Snap-on, theres a lot of great manufacturers out there making tools just as good and with the same warranty, but you do have one of the best boxes on the market to keep it all in and thats what counts!

Glad to have a formal introduction Junior! ,My Dad and two of my younger brothers were born in Dunsmuir (actually Redding). My Dad was on ski patrol on Mt Shasta and was a Bank Manager for Bank of America many many years ago. We moved to New England when I was 8 in '78. Even know that was 37 years ago I will never forget that country. Absolutely beautiful.

When i grow up, i want my tool box to look just like yours bear. Man your set up is awesome, went back to check it out again. I like the brands i have and they haven't let me down yet.

I love skiing shasta but its been closed 2 years in a row due to the drought[emoji53], Judy sucks. But I'm originally from the redding area, as a matter of fact I go almost every weekend cuz i miss it so much. But love my job and what i do.[emoji3]

it took me a long time to get my box to where it is and my starting point was a good box, I have a lot of other brands other than Snap-on, Knipex, OTC, Matco, MAC and some Britool stuff I brought from the UK when I moved to Canada. I'm in my mid 40's now and its taken me this long to get my set up to where it is and I never owned a Snap-on box till I was in my late 30's cause I could never afford it so to own a Master series box is a great start to make!

Thanks bear. Great words of inspiration. The plan is that when my son gets older this will be his box and i will hopefully upgrade to the epic series. But that's 10 years down the road.

An Epiq is my ambition too  JR, The Master series box will last you and your son a lifetime thats for sure and 10 years down the road might be that long before I upgrade too! Unfortunately though I have no kids to pass mine onto but thats ok, when I'm old it'll give me something to polish...lol

Welcome, man you got some nice tools what equipment are you using that leak detector on?

@Justin Hernandez. I'm using it on two warehouses(cooler rooms) that are run by a refrigeration rack. The machine room has five 30 hp Carlyle(basically carrier) compressors, a 8 fan condenser, and 14 evaporating coils(2 fans per coil). We normally keep the room at 28 degrees. I'll post some pics tomorrow. Im also using it on a vacuum cooler that we rent, that thing is bad ass too. Make ice in a five gallon bucket in 10 min.

Wow that is some nice pipe work and a great looking compressor rack, its good to see that they have pressure controls on them. Every thing is so clean I guess you can't have any dirt around strawberries..lol It must cost some money to install all that equipment, If I had to work on that I wouldn't even know where to begin
