Re: 6V optima battery

Hi Mac, I bought one in Apr. 2012 and so far it's been fine. At that time, Optima was offering a $25 mail in rebate. I don't know if they do that regularly, but you may want to look on their website....

Re: I"m back ! (finally)

My old Dell with XP was doomed because it couldn't be updated. I bought a HP laptop and it runs on Windows 7. I purchased ESET anti-virus and it's been trouble free. Stay away from Windows Explorer....

I've used Flukes for 30+years. They are expensive but provide lots of built in features. When airbags arrived on Volvos in the early 80's we were required to use them because the ohm meter didn't...

Re: Anyone try open end ratcheting wrenches?

I like the Gear Wrench ratcheting box wrenches. They're good in tight access uses. They can take lots of torque and have a lifetime warranty.

Re: A neat trick to retrieve a bolt from inside the bell housing

Hi Milford, I have some magnets that are used in the electronic throttles on new cars.
They will hold 4 or 5 pounds in place. Their profile is about 3/8". I'll save one for you.
