How do you all like my Made in USA K-D 428 spring clamp pliers I got from a yard sale for a $1 :)

I'd like it a lot better if that was my hand it was in

Haha. They work pretty good. I just tried them out on the drain hose to the water softener my dad and I just installed. My dad got a whole box of old but in decent shape made in USA c-clamps too.

Bryan, awesome find.  Don't you just love it when you find tools made in the USA at a great price too.

 

One word comes to mind..... SCORE.

 

I load up the kids and head over to the local Goodwill at least once a week. They (and I) love it.  Actually there are 3 we patronize within a 20 minute drive. Kind of like winning on a scratcher.

 

I got some really decent tools over the years.  Will only buy USA, German, and Isreali made tools. NEVER China junk.


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!

ZIG:
Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

N.M.:
It always seems impossible until it's done.

Mmhhmm! I usually don't do much yard saling, but this ladies husband just passed away and my sister and bro in law are buying her house. She gave us first pick before she even had the yard sale. We also got an old Sears craftsman compressor, Stihl chainsaw, and I got a Wen wet stone machine made in USA. The pump bellow was broken so I order a new bellow. It still won't pump water. I guess I'll order the pump kit next and resurrect this machine, or I can still use it by manual putting water on the stone :)

I have the same pliers.  They really come in handy for those single coil clamps usually found on Scotsman u/c I/m's.  I keep it next to my flaring tool.
