I actually got it at a steel warehouse near me. I forget if it's the 6 or 8 though. That was a while ago. But it's solid. I believe it's a eastwood/Wilton one. It may be cast steel instead of iron as well. I forget and the site doesn't say.THAT is One Awesome Tool Kit... Thanks... And by the way... I've just nick-named your Vise... "The Blue Chew" :>)
The slides on one of the drawers of a Clarke roll-away I have went bye-bye just yesterday, right when I needed the torque wrench out of the drawer beneath it!Has anyone replaced the drawer slides on their roll out tool chests ? Mine are getting bad and if anyone has done it I could use your
I'm having the same issue myself with the husky drawer slides. Actually while my brother was moving it around in the shop it slightly tipped and bent up the tracks.I did come across a good video on how to get it done and all the contact info.OMG! with all of those choices I'm sure to order the wrong ones...
I agree a thermal imager is a huge bonus to the toolbox. Easier to post the thread instead of the images again. I've been happy with the Flir i5, endless possibilities.Finding an Affordable “Stand Alone” Thermal Imaging Camera with enough features to make it a worthwhile tool for General Automotive and Home System Trouble Shooting Diagnostics for under $500.00 over the past few years has been a PITA.
I have the FLIR-ONE Gen 3 Micro-USB Plug-In Camera for my Smart Phone that I Like VERY Much… But I would STILL like having a Decent IR Camera that is 'An All In One Unit' with LONG Battery Life and NOT have to Go Broke to get one.
I also wanted something that I can just "Jam in my Pocket" and NOT have to "Baby" or "Worry" about Damaging it via a Snapped Off Micro-USB Connector or by accidentally activating other features on my Android Phone.
Well… Lah-Dee-Dah... Take a Look at THIS:
The Klein Tool's TI250 Re-Chargeable IR Cam available for only $288.29 via Amazon:
If you are Chasing ANYTHING that will leave a Thermal Signature when it starts to go sideways and either gets TOO HOT or remains TOO COLD … THIS is “The Thing” that can save you HOURS of Diagnostic time on everything from locating Clogs inside of Drain Pipes to finding Misfires from Bad COil On Plugs by viewing the Exhaust Manifold for the presence of Cold Ports, or even ID Failing A/C Systems Components or Vehicles getting Dead Batteries Overnight from Weird Parasitic Drains.
Having a Tool like THIS one is worth considering and by way of another example, think of how often @xavierny25 and his Brother would use this Thing almost daily doing their Powder Coating Prep & Inspections and Plumbing or A/C Repairs.
And for MOST of us who are often steeped in Auto Mechanical Repairs, being able to Quickly Hunt down the following:
(1) Shorted or Corroded Copper Wire produces HEAT from the “Positive Thermal Co-Efficient” (PTC) phenomena from Increased RESISTANCE.
(2) Automotive Modules that FAIL to “Go To Sleep”.
(3) Clogged A/C Condensers.
(4) Clogged Transmission Coolers.
(5) Clogged Radiators and Heater Pipes.
(6) Determine PRECISELY when an Engine Thermostat OPENS (or FAILS to do so)
(7) Locating Nocturnal Animal Nuisances over short distances in the Yard-Attic.
(8) Observe, Compare and Pin-Point Overheated Brakes or Diff-Axle Bearings.
By being able to actually SEE the Subtle HEAT Signatures often present, but Invisible to Humans as Thermal Clues they create, we can pinpoint such locations FAST. Thus, we can improve our ability to perform Targeted Repairs. Here is a Damned Good "Tough Field Use" Review of this 10,000 Pixel Klein IR Camera:

I've got one of these "Things" on its way here ... Now... :>)
