We will wait on your new design that we can build from parts from HD or Lowes.

Thought about adding a thread for "Deals', but here seems a good place to post stuff we see/buy...

Go to your local LOWES, and pick up....
Crossform Wrench Set..
8 piece Metric or 8 piece SAE... No quibble Lifetime warrantee..
List is price is $79.99 per set..
On sale for $14.98 per set!
I got both sets... out the door, $33 with tax, here in CA.
Told my son in Az, and he grabbed a set at his local Lowes..
Just sharing the Holiday joy!

This is them...

Unless Snap-on is producing in China, I doubt they have anything to do with either Lowe's or Kobalt. But really, (excluding ratchets from the discussion) how often have you been let down by a cheap or rusty old open end wrench?
If you are not a serious professional mechanic, purchasing tools for a lifetime, the "Craftsman" or less will probably get the nut off the bolt just as well.
..... Not to say that I won't completely retool with Snap-on if I hit the lottery, including the $20k tool box! Charly.

They do not feel or look as well made as the X-Beam Craftsman wrenches that they resemble, nor are they as long... but at $15... I had to share the joy!

If I ever hit the lotto, I will buy 2 sets!

You guys need to get out and watch the sunrise...this morning, my 'cosmetically challenged' moho and I(also cosmetically challenged) let the AZ sunrise take the chill off the air...got tools in the tool drawer, but a cup of coffee, a smoke, and another day on the road serve me better...
Derek, will be landing in Ajo today...

That set up is perfect...except for the price and the unavoidable domestic riff it would cause. I'm already in trouble for watching too much TV in the Moho. "You mean you're going to come out here in the woods and watch TV?" I tried to explain that there are only so many Formula One races a year, but to no avail. Good thing she likes fast cars too.

Well, I'm off the Lowe's...

Not gonna put the motorised TV in mine...
If it is down, it would get in the way of the quick dash to the bathroom on a long trip while the Cruise Control is on...

I am just joking... but I bet some numb nut has done it!

Your front TV should be wired so that it will shut off when the ignition key is activated. The TV should also retract to the store position at this time.
So, in theory, you can still make that dash to the back without worrying about hitting your head.
