Just curious, what's your favorite web tool accounts? Mine are Amazon and wwwthetoolwarehouse.net, most times they have what I want and do me the best on prices, both offer free shipping after you spend so much. Thetoolwarehouse has faster shipping, allot faster than Amazon's free shipping.

MSC Direct is where I like to shop. I find I have huge variety of interests in tools and supplies. This place isn't the cheapest but, I do watch for their specials and sales. Very quick deliveries. A one stop shop. I like it.

I buy from them too. They have the best customer service in the business but it's costs. I can't write my tools off so I try to get the cheapest I can buy them for but still buy from a reliable source.

Good if you're American, I'm not. Amazon ships via courier to Canada (if they even will ship sometimes they won't). Canucks get dinged big time by couriers, up to 30% of the cost of the item. Also, we have Amazon.ca, but not near as many products as the main Amazon, but it's getting better.

Dell I just bought a 3/8 IR 107 XPA 3/8 air ratchet for 59.20 and a 1/4" IR 105D2 air ratchet for 91.99 from Amazon, they have a half price sale going on right now on some of their air tools.

I think the half price thingy is a way for Amazon to clear out their existing stock, more than likely IR has a newer model coming out..... but it does feel sOOOO good to come out on top once in a while. :lol:


I think you guys up there make more money than we do down here, all things have a way of evening out. :lol::lol::lol:

No doubt, Costco is a prime example, they gobble up existing stock at a discount when a new model is just about to be released....

Not so sure about the more money bit. Taxes gobble up a good amount of that due to our universal health care. I make $2307 every two weeks, and clear a shade over $1300. Course a lot of it is union dues, medical plan, income tax, yada, yada, yada.

Dell if you ever see something you want at American Amazon (and it's worth your while) buy it and send to me, I'll be glad to ship it USPS to you the same day I get it.

We pay $512 a month for the wife's medical plan and she can't use it because it has a $5000 deductible, every year it goes up too. If they stopped taking out taxes I don't think much would change for the average man, the worlds powerful movers and shakers would jack up the price on everything just like they did when women entered the work force. They ain't never gonna let little people keep their money.

Thanks dell, I'm egger to tear into this Ford. :good2:

Changed the key switch cylinder in it today before I dropped it off at the tire store to have it's oil and fuel filter changed and tires rotated.

It was a simple process, only takes a 1/8" flat tip punch to slip into a hole in the column beneath the key cylinder and put the old and new switch in run position is all you do.

I bought a Motors Manual, back then it was a good auto repair book, you could call a tech if you had problems, todays repair books are not as thorough I've read unless you spend a few hundred to buy company manuals.


Tomorrow it supposed to be cooler so I'm going to try to fix the shifting linkage... There is supposed to be two bolts on the steering column bracket that always loosen up that causes the problem. If it's not the bolts I need to get under the van and take a clip off the shift cable, put the transmission's arm in the drive detent and the shifing arm centered in D and then hang a three pound weight off the shift arm, adjust out the cable's slack and then put the cable clip back on again. Sounds easy enough but we all know how that can go: ).
