RE: Craftsman Hand Tools

I'm pretty sure Craftsman has different levels of tools. From the cheaper novice type tools, to the better quality pro-model tools.

RE: But officer the spare is flat....

I would just love to hear the story as to why he is doing this. Not to mention how he got it in there like that.

RE: Craftsman Hand Tools

Harbor Freight tools work just fine. Limited Lifetime Warranty on Hand Tools "Harbor Freight Tools makes every effort to ensure that our products meet high quality and durability standards and warrants to the original purchaser that eligible products are free from defects in material and workmanship for the life of the product. This warranty does not apply to damage due (directly or indirectly) to misuse, abuse-negligence, accidents, repairs, alterations outside our facilities or to lack of maintenance. We shall in no event be liable for death, injuries to persons or property or for incidental, contingent, special or consequential damages arising from the use of our product. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. To take advantage of this warranty, the product or part must be returned to us with transportation charges prepaid. Proof–of–purchase date and an explanation of the complaint must accompany the merchandise. If our inspection verifies the defect, we will either repair or replace the product at our election or we may elect to refund the purchase price if we cannot readily and quickly provide you with a replacement. We will return repaired products at our expense, but if we determine there is no defect, or that the defect resulted from causes not within the scope or our warranty, then you must bear the cost of storing and returning the product. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. Harbor Freight's lifetime tool warranty is one of the strongest in the business, and one of the main reasons for millions of satisfied customers!" You notice the warranty says "proof of purchase" is required? Do you keep all the receipts on all your hand tools? I don't and I surely wouldn't have them 10 or 15 years later. Craftsmen doesn't require a receipt for hand tools.

RE: Craftsman Hand Tools

But they discontinued that warranty some years back. Craftsman Warranty According to their web site the warranty on hand tools (not torque wrenches) still stands. Their warranty is not what it might seem. I had a broken ratchet a couple of years ago and a was given a "used" replacement. The dept manager told me they were only obligated to replace the tool with a working tool, not with a new one. If you are a tradesman and use tools everyday, Snap on is the best. They are easiest on your hands and actually work better. If you are a weekend/home mechanic, don't spend the extra money for Snap-on. Craftsman, Husky and the like work just fine. Harbor Freight wrenches/sockets are real junk. That is their warranty and that's what it has always been. If you look behind the counter at the tool register, you may see a box of used ratchets back there that have been rebuilt. If yours breaks you walk in and hand them the broken one and they'll hand you a rebuilt one with the exact same lifetime warranty. I have no problem with that. I once bought a broken ratchet many years ago at a yard sale for a dime. Took it to Sears and traded it for a nice working rebuilt one.

RE: Craftsman Hand Tools

In days of old Crafstman hand tools were king of... Well,if you got a 7/16" Wrench and did not loose it that would be the LAST 7/16 you would ever buy.. Cause if it broke.. Take the pieces back and they gave you a new one. But they discontinued that warranty some years back. No they didn't. Hand tools still have a lifetime warranty.

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

In the USA we already have almost a 100% safety record in commercial aviation. The fact is commercial airliners almost never crash as compared to the number that are flying. The danger is one of those media created problems because every fatal plane crash makes the 6 o'clock news, but fatal car crashes are so common they almost never make the news. Fatal car accidents get a mention on page 12 of the paper if they make the news at all. We are all much safer in a commercial airliner than we are anytime we get in a car. I'll fly commercial any day of the week. That is until they come up with the pilotless planes, then I'll be safely on the ground.

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

Have the pilot on the ground, if we can send a drone half way around the globe, we should be able to steer the future aircraft the same way, no pilots on board they are on the ground, where the powers that be can replace them if they want to do something stupid. All there is on board are passengers and cabin attendants, all guidance is relayed by satellite with encryption so that it can not be hacked, no public access controls no cockpit. navegator The only flaw with that is the fact that most of us are not going to get on a robot controlled plane.

RE: Loss on sale of motorhome

Blackdiamond Are you saying 30% off of the price I paid for it? That seems excessive. That number could be right. The fact is with all things being equal, people would rather buy from a dealer than a private party. You have dealer support, they can usually arrange financing at better rates, and you are less likely to get ripped off by a dealer. So if you price this motorhome too high, a potential buyer is just going to go buy a brand new one instead. The fact that you got 27% off MSRP means nothing as the next buyer can get that deal too. If you buy new, once you take it off the lot it does become worth a whole lot less money.

RE: How do I add sanitizer to my fresh water tank ?

Why did they start making motorhomes without a gravity fill? Mine doesn't have one and over the years it has been a pain. For one thing, it takes a good half hour for my tank to fill from empty because of the pressure limiter that's built in. I can't tell you how many times I've flooded a campsite because I turned the water on to fill the tank and forgot about it. Actually I can tell you, I've done it three times! Also makes it hard to bring in extra water when boon docking too. I;ve thought about looking for a way to install a gravity fill system into my tank.

RE: How do I add sanitizer to my fresh water tank ?

That is all fine and dandy, but to waste 100 gallons of water by dumping is ridiculous. If you are going to be hooked up to a faucet in a camp ground that will be direct for your kitchen and bathroom lavatory sink. But instead of wasting the sanitized water at least use it for the toilet by using the water pump when using the bathroom. Once your water tank has used up the sanitized water THEN refill with fresh water if you want to have a full tank. Where I used to work the water tanks on cabooses and locomotives were sanitized with Oakite. The OP is in Florida. Pretty sure they don't have a water shortage there.

RE: How do I add sanitizer to my fresh water tank ?

I've found the only way to keep the bleach in the hose while connecting to a faucet is to either kink the hose so the bleach can't spill out or screw on a shutoff valve then connect to the faucet Or make sure both ends of the hose stay higher than the rest of the hose.

RE: How do I add sanitizer to my fresh water tank ?

Empty your hose of water and then attach it to your motorhome. Pour your sanitizer into the other end of your hose. Attach that end to the hose bib (being careful not to let the sanitizer run out) and then turn on the water. Your set up sounds similar to mine and short of getting a pump to pump your sanitizer into the fresh water tank, my above method is the easiest.

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

You think if a 110 pound female flight attendant had been in the cockpit she could have stopped him? Her job is to open the door for the pilot to enter. Yup, no way the co-pilot could have stopped her. Sorry I suggested otherwise.

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

http://i4.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article5409425.ece/BINARY/A320-crash-graphic.jpg height=640 Like I said before the US regulations of always having two crew members in the cockpit is working fine so far and I think that would have avoided this crash. It's working fine because no US pilot has tried to crash a plane on purpose recently. If Germany had the two crew member rule, then the co-pilot in this case likely would have had a plan on how to deal with it. You think if a 110 pound female flight attendant had been in the cockpit she could have stopped him?

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

I am not a pilot and know absolutely nothing about cockpit procedure but common sense should provide a way for a pilot/copilot to enter the cockpit in the event the one inside will not open the door. Some sort of a code or switch known only to the cockpit members. That isn't common sense. The entire purpose of the secure door is so that nobody in the back of the plane can get into the cockpit and take over control of the plane. If there was a way around that how would you propose to keep it secret from terrorists? Tens of thousands of crew members would have to know how it's done including the very guy that crashed this plane. Not to mention, even if the pilot in this plane had a way to get through the door, all the co-pilot would have had to have done is increase the angle of the dive to a point where the pilot would have been unable to move within the plane. In this type of aircraft, there are many limitations on what the pilot can command the airplane to do with the manual sidestick. This airplane is protected from going into Mach Tuck. It will not allow the pilot to manually put the airplane into a vertical dive. The maximum dive angle it will allow is the one for the programmed emergency descend. The system only allows a "controlled descend". That's why there's reason to believe that this pilot set a very low altitude for the descend profile. The auto system allowed a maximum descent rate of about 4,300 ft per minute and a maximum speed of about 400 knots. I've flown high performance jet aircraft which allowed you to hand fly the aircraft for emergency descends, and with the engines at flight idle, and the landing gear down and spoilers out, you still did not dare exceed a rate of descent more than about 5,500 ft per minute, for fear of going into mach tuck from which which you can't recover. I'm sure that foreign airlines will be forced to incorporate the "at least 2 crew members in the cockpit at all times" rule. But like said before, the two in the cockpit rule can be worked around too. Also isn't the entire purpose of the two in the cockpit rule so that the 2nd person can look through the peephole to make sure it's the pilot that wants back in and that nobody is behind him forcing him in? But back to what you wrote here, the plane limits the decent in controlled flight. Does the plane also have something that would prevent the pilot from stalling it and putting it into a spin?

RE: Check This One Out!!

There's been a few different models of the monorail over the years. The one in this photo looks the closet to what you saw. The windshield lines and underside all match. http://thedisneydrivenlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/2432669051_12595c3211_b.jpg height=400

That appears to be an old Disneyland or Disneyworld Monorail that has been converted.

RE: Do you pull a trailer behind your Motorhome?

Here's the problem; First of all quads are a lot bigger than they may look. My two quads put end to end on a trailer are over 14'. If you try side to side then they are too wide for most trailers. Now if you want to throw a smart car in you are talking a huge trailer. So now you have the problem of what to do with the trailer when you are camping. Pull-through sites become your only option because you can't move the trailer by hand. Maybe you could as long as everything is flat. So if only back in sites are available, you have to find someplace to be able to leave the trailer that you can get it into with the motorhome and that can be real tricky.

RE: Through San Francisco south to north.

The easiest, and most scenic in my opinion, is come up 280 instead of 101. You can get on 280 in San Jose from 101. Take 280 up to Highway 1 and then get on Highway 1 South. The second exit once you get on 1 should be Skyline Blvd North. Make sure you stay to the right to go North. Follow Skyline and then the Great Highway all the way up the Pacific Coast of San Francisco. If you're stopping to visit things you'll be going by Fort Funston, the Zoo, Golden Gate Park, The Cliff House, and Ocean Beach as well as other things. You'll up back on Geary Blvd and can get back on Highway 1 from there and cross the Golden Gate.
