OK I think I got it now.  Like what was said in my previous post:

 

Here's my carry-in. Flashlight is a Fenix LD22 - super bright (not shown keep in my pocket) !  Special tools kept in truck.  Also use a Fieldpiece HS36 True RMS meter for those head-scratchers.

Dig in and the truth shall be revealed.


I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....

To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

Here's my carry-in.



A beautiful arrangement, Brother beam!  Like listening to a maestro's composition at a symphony.   :dazzler:

 

BTW, I carry the same IR gun (keep the better one in the car) and carry those same pair of Klein wire strippers.  Looks like you use the same Radio Shack micro lead set as me, too.  

 

Is that the Skil battery driver?  Brother Durham turned me on to that.  Getting one of those for Christmas from someone (as yet unknown to me) in my family.  

 

I have that same little inspection mirror but found that it's too small to be of much use.  I had a bigger one that was self lighting but it broke.  (I had to retire the Mac mirror shown in my video).

Thanks.  The IR gun was a smokin' deal @ Sears.  Used my points and bought it for around $20 >>>>> nice compact thermo.

 

I started using Klein strippers when working in the general aviation industry back in the late 90's.  Working in small, cramped quarters i.e. airplanes, appliances and AC units, these work great.

 

Yes, the Radio Shack test leads are the same.  This awesome site turned me onto those, thanks to you and our fellow brethern.

 

No, not Skil.  It's an old LI3000 Black and Decker 3.6v.  Had it for years and it just keeps going !

 

BTW, just picked up the Ryobi TEK4 4.0v from HD - now $30.  See it here:

http://www.homedepot...P53LK/202351930

 

One of my favorite tools is that little set of crimpers (same pic as IR gun, bottom row second in from left).  They are Craftsman, Made in USA, and work AWESOME.  I believe the Craftsman brand is NLA, but it is made by KD Tools and you can buy online.

 

What makes it nice is the crimp die is at the end of the tool instead of in the middle, like some of the larger crimper-stripper combo. 

 

Standing on your ear, reaching way in and then your light starts flickering, nothing pisses you off more than cutting into a nearby harness when making the critical crimp.  Not that that never happened before.  :whistling:

Hey Spanner,  incredible setup.

 

Question please, in the "Contents under Bottom Pallet" pic, what is the tool directly to the left of your Bosch driver?  Contact extraction tool, cap tube tool, or ?????

It's a tool for removing pin various pin connections.  It will fit every Sub Zero and Wolf connecter, that's who gave it to me.  But it also works on many others.

You all don't want to see my tool bag. I straightened it up some but it was a huge mess when I worked at Sears. I have the veto tech lc bag. I need to get some new tools because I gave quite a few to Sears when I left due to the fact I lost so many of theirs. To many days running around like a chicken with my head cutoff. :)

I carry a 10" 'Cats Paw'. It's heavy enough to smack a nail in and long (and stiff) enough to use as a pry bar to lift a fridge or washer corner to spin a leg out easily. ( http://www.amazon.co...words=cat's paw

I am still trying to get SAMURAI.....  To give us the name of those small, hose ring pliars,  He gave a name for them but I cannot find them any where.

 

I dont want a big long handle pair, want a short pair like the boss...  Not even sure what the technical, names are of them dang double split ring clamps.

 

I have found that a pair of angled nosed, needle nose pliars works pretty good, at getting most of them off..

 

NAME ON THE PLIARS AND ANY SOURCE PLEASE SIR   thank you.

I carry they same one. You can see them in the top pallet pic along with a set of hose crimp (radiator) pliers. The only difference is mine don't have the red grips. Here's the crimp pliers.
