I've never had occasion to measure 750 volts at all and if I did I'm pretty sure I wouldn't do it with a free HF meter.

My alternator output is 13.82475333_ . Should I replace my regulator diodes?

Just make sure you are wearing your flame resistant clothing :)

For any of the automotive stuff that is normally done, the el cheapo(read free) meters are the absolute best. Who cares if you drop it in an oil pan, run over it, etc etc.

ROFL, I think you should replace your regulator diodes just for fun.

Also interesting that there's a roll of HOBART wire included with the Millermatic machine.
Hobart is a subsidiary of Miller Electric.

...Staying away from the oem brand tools at autozone though.
I think those have a lifetime warranty, no?

Built by GreatNeck, and yes you can just take it back to the store with your receipt and they will replace it.

Anyone using a plasma had better realize that it blows molten metal EVERYWHERE and that it requires way more personal and property protection than grinding or welding.
x2 or maybe even 3.

I had a few buttholes take my tool as well. I did get it back, albeit dirty and a little banged up. :whistle:

...and now, he gave me this (with a keg in it) for my birthday. You know, the reward for finishing a job on the van ;)

Happy Birthday! I have been considering getting one of those for a while.

The Beer Room:
Totally jealous, I need to add a beer room :)
Had I been in a bit better shape when you came here, you would have seen and sampled from the beer room :lol:
Well, next time I'm coming through I hope to have something to add to your beer room. Oh, and can we put in an order for a sunny day as well?

I guess for a man-cave. I spose I have a man-palace with drywall, framed photos and a urinal. :shrug:
I will admit, I'm jealous of the urinal, definitely going to add that to the list for the next one.

Picked up a new to me tool for around the property.

Needs some love but everything works. I dropped it off at a friends house to sort out the carb. Shopping for wheels an tires and plow. I have a diabolical idea for a replacement dump bed

Nice, those things are workhorses. Good luck, and don't worry about the image preview, it's just our site software. Opens perfectly fine.

I have been eyeing up that exact stubby impact as well. Can't believe how small and light it is.

That screw grab stuff and others like it have such mixed reviews, can't wait to hear about your experience with it. For the price it sure can't hurt to try.

The stubby is worth it. Every penny.
Guess I will use this 25% off coupon on one, thanks Leeann!

Sure!

Make sure it can be used with it. They have exceptions on the coupons now.
Of course all of the good stuff is on the exceptions list, including the 'Earthquake' tools. Shucks.
