#280378 24 volt tester

Posted by wishfultech on 07 January 2014 - 06:09 PM

I built 1 of those several years ago and it does come in handy for checking things. At the time I built it I was looking for a solution for checking controls with the high voltage off.Works like a charm.

Went by Lowe's and wouldn't you know it,lots of handy tool sets for Christmas!Got a Kobalt set with a 1/4 x 5/16 ratchet and several bits for less than 10 bucks.Also a nifty pry bar that also is like a spanner wrench and can loosen 1/4 5/16 3/8 &1/2 inch nuts.I can see many uses for this and less than $2. I love this time of year!

If there is a shoe repair place near you, you might get them to fasten the tool holder to the case. There's nothing like good ole inginuity.

#268180 A New Lowe? .. Southwire tools

Posted by wishfultech on 14 September 2013 - 11:32 AM

I saw the same tools and I couldn't help but wonder why they would start carrying tools I have never heard of that cost just as much as ""name brand"" tools. I know I would feel better spending big bucks on tools that  I know are good and built to last.Can't say much for the color either kind of hen---- brown.Lowes should have given this more thought. At least home Depot still carries Klein

#265428 New Larry Light

Posted by wishfultech on 20 August 2013 - 08:02 PM

There's a new Larry Light out.It has more lumens and a better switch too.The only thing I don't care for is an LED pointer on the end.I don't need to point to things very much. The price could have been cheaper without the pointer I'm sure.It is a bright light though!

Enjoyed the video and I think I may invest in a Kill A Watt.

#265098 testing a compressor relay

Posted by wishfultech on 18 August 2013 - 08:32 AM

This is my experience, Freezer compressor would not start.Took the start relay to an appliance repair shop, checked relay (that rattled)with an ohm meter and it checked good.He showed me a new relay and it rattled too.By that I decided not to buy a new relay if mine was good. Came home and used my test cord and the compressor started just fine.Because I hated to loose more food by taking a chance I went ahead and bought a new freezer.I intended to keep my old one and check it out further but the delivery man came 2 hrs. early and had already hauled it away.If it were me I would try a new relay,if it works great and if it doesn't you're out $20.00.At least you won't feel bad like me.

#253856 Flashlight

Posted by wishfultech on 05 May 2013 - 07:30 PM

Went to Batteries Plus the other day and they carry the ''Larry'' light .For 10 bucks it is a great little light and the magnet is a great plus.I carry a Fenix  in my pocket and use it often but I can see using the Larry in all sorts of things.Maybe another thing to add to your arsenal.Cant have too many flashlights!
