Re: Replacement Wiper Motor Parts or replacement motor??

Re: starting my A tool collection

If an original Model A grease gun is complete, then there is nothing to "rebuild". They probably are just clogged up with dried grease and need to be cleaned. This is in reference to the Model A...

Re: New England Meet

When I refuel my A, I remove the gas cap and immediately place it on the floorboard in front of the driver's seat. Learned my lesson at an early age and haven't lost another one since.

Hershey Pantry has the best deserts that you will find anywhere. Pies & cakes. It is on East Chocolate Avenue, about one mile east of downtown Hershey, right next door to the Hampton Inn.

Re: Upholstery Clips - Need Advice

I have older Blue Point tools that are USA made, so being foreign made must be something recent. Sort of like Craftsman, used to be USA and now foreign.

Re: Small Parts Spray Paint

Some of the new Rust-Oleum paint cans will spray in any position, including upside down. With those, they suggest that you just wipe off the nozzle tip.
