Brake spring pliers are the same. Cheesy stamped pliers that are seldom used (even less so nowadays) they are good for nothing else, but when you need them they sure are the right tool.Lisle Exhaust Hanger Pliers...I was like, no way I'm spending $35 (at the time) on a pair of pressed/stamped hacky looking pliers. Turns out, they are worth every penny if you do as much as one exhaust system swap.
Only the third time I ever used it. But a few others use it all the time.
I looked hard at a Multifix system before I went w/ my AXA. Cost was definitely the deciding factor. One always wonders if one is missing out, however...
Allis Chalmers made pretty darn good orange tractors, watched a D21 absolutely walk the dog at a pull couple years ago. Those red n white internationals always seem to do well tooOnly the third time I ever used it. But a few others use it all the time.
I like it to hide behind it when the other guy starts throws stuff at me after some nasty rude comment of mine. Don't really care what color the couch/wall/truck/fence is. Could even be that fecal orange colour @YotaBota likes.......

Yes, brake spring pliers, cordless tools, recipercating saw, the hot dam when splitting a beef, drill press, the old Lee hand loaders, newer presses since. Really, most all the tools I've ever bought since I was 13. Lathe, engine hoist, wife pestered me about a side x side some years ago. Made a big difference on the farm for me/us, a blade on it and a dump box, she would plow snow while I was at work. Or buzz out and drop off couple bales for the critters. Turn hay, rake fields and so on, yes, pick rocks.
ATV's have their pluses, but the SxS is a lot handier for property maintenance. Just wish it had a limited slip, or selectable diff lock, as it tears the hell out of the grass.
Good point! Why did I overlook that????? YES YES YES.So, nobody has posted about a lathe DRO. Is it not that important, or maybe an accessory once you have everything else?
