Thats tiny.. Got some 3.5 inch in the shop here.. Of course we work on Semi's here.
Early this morning, I get another text from the guy... "looks like it's sold".
Replaced the 3/8" breaker bar that I broke, as well as picked up a 1/2" one to go with it, cuz why not.
I wonder if people have had such bad luck with people backing out of sales, that they double sell things like this as insurance? This hasn't happened to me yet, but all the stuff I've bought off CL has been cheap (~$50) so...
If there were one thing I wish mine had, it would be a ratcheting mechanism - repositioning in a tight space can be difficult, sometimes. HF used to carry them, but they weren't very good.
I think there's bidding wars going on. I just sold my wife's cr-v and I had a guy just pestering me non stop even saying he'd pay $50 over my asking. If someone is deperate enough, they'll try and ply on the seller's greed by doing that. I wound up selling to the first one for $550 even though I was asking $700. I have more integrity than that and I didn't want to deal with some pestering goof ball.
That's really cool! I like seeing homemade projects like this.I let my degree get the better of me today... I needed a smoke leak tester. Didn't want to spend the money. Saw a guy build one and said I could do better. I took a Mason jar and drilled 3 holes in it. I used 2 pieces of 5/16 steel tubing and epoxied them to the holes sealing it. The third sealed a wire. On the end of this wire is a coil of vape pen wire, 20 gauge. The other end of the wire has a cigarette lighter adapter. I wrapped the coil in a cotton Terry cloth soaked in baby oil. The result? A smoke machine that rivals my best fog machine. One hose to the vacuum port, the other to the air compressor. I had it regulated pretty low to about 10 psi. Worked flawlessly. Sadly I have no leaks.
