5.0 out of 5 stars A Quality Product, June 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Don't let the price tag on this valve stem puller fool you, this is a solid, quality made product designed to last a long time and help you pull stems into rims. Even has a rubber protector near the pivot point to prevent you from scratching rims while pulling a stem through and crosshatching on the handle to prevent your hand from slipping while using the tool. So with that, I say, if you're in need of a valve stem puller, look no further than this Steelman puller.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Excellent Puller, June 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're in need of a quality puller for battery terminals or wiper arms look no further than this KD Tools/GearWrench puller. While there may be cheaper ones, they definitely won't last as long or do as good a job as this one does. I've used mine on more than few corroded/stubborn wiper arms and it's popped them off with ease every time without sustaining a scratch. So if you own a vehicle built by a manufacturer who insists you remove your wiper arm just to change a wiper blade, consider picking up one of these pullers, it will save you a lot of hassle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Disposable Gloves, June 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're looking for some cheap disposable gloves for household cleanup tasks (nothing in the workshop though, these gloves do NOT hold up well to oil, solvents, etc.) that are available in more than one size fits no one, look no further than these Daxwell gloves. While they aren't very tear resistant, anything that catches these gloves is likely to tear them open, assuming you avoid such hazards they hold up as well as some more expensive gloves I've used. Not to mention these gloves fit well, I usually wear an XL glove and these gloves actually conform to my hand and are a comfortable fit in an XL, something a few more expensive gloves have failed at.

Now the main reason I bought these gloves were for halogen bulb changes on vehicles as it's easy to grab a clean pair and they hold up well enough to finish the job without costing me a fortune. Are they my favorite gloves, no, but my favorite gloves are 3-4 times the price for half the amount so I'd say it's a fair compromise. To sum up, if you're in need of some light-duty disposable gloves that don't break the bank, these Daxwell gloves are a good choice as long as you don't need any tear resistance.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Welcome Addition To Any Toolbox, May 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There's plenty of these door panel removers on the market and this Tekton keeps up with the more expensive ones with ease. It's great for removing those little plastic clips that hold so many things together on cars and has also proven quite useful at prying off tight fitting wheel covers/center caps thanks to the angle built into this tool (it's basically a mini prybar). Not to mention, the quality of this tool is more than sufficient for it's intended uses, so if you've got a modern vehicle with trim pieces, plastic clips and other stubborn parts and want to do you're own work, this tool would be a welcome addition to your tool collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Brushes, May 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the price these command, these brushes are a good deal, just don't expect a miracle of quality (they are plastic handles after all). I've yet to lose any bristles out of mine despite extensive use but these brushes do flex/bend quite a lot while in use and I know this is going to lead to one breaking near the brush head one of these days. That said, these brushes have been invaluable in cleaning up corrosion in tight spaces so and have far outlasted my initial expectations so as long as you don't need them for daily extended use, I would recommend picking up a set as you get steel, brass and nylon brushes in this set, making them very versatile and an excellent value.

Capri Tools 60 SMD Aluminum Work Light with Rechargeable Lithium Battery

5.0 out of 5 stars One Awesome Light, May 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're looking for a great work light, look no further than this one. I bought mine to replace an aging cheap worklight that was developing flickering LED's and let me tell you, the warning in the box NOT to look at this light while it's on is NO joke, this is a very bright light. Compared to my old light, it's like a candle vs. a lighthouse and the Capri light is infinitely more versatile thanks to the included adjustable hooks and magnet. The magnet is more than strong enough to hold up the weight of this light so you can stick it to the underside of a hood to illuminate an engine or to the underside of a car for a better look. The best part is, both the magnet and the hooks can be rotated around their mounting points so you can easily angle the light to the optimal position for whatever you need to light up. Plus, this light delivers on performance, though I've never use mine for more than 30 minutes at a time, it easily delivers on it's promised battery life of 3.5 hours and it charges fairly quickly.

In short, if you're after a rechargeable work light that's bright, durable and versatile, look no further than a Capri Tools 60 SMD work light.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Cable, April 23 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're in need of a way to hook up your some piece of electronic equipment (computer in my case) to another device) to another display device over a short distance than look no further than this cable. It may not cost big bucks but it sure doesn't lack on providing the exact same signal a more expensive cable would provide while costing you more for no added benefit. So as long as you don't need a HDMI to DVI cable longer than 3 feet (many people do, 3 feet doesn't go as far as you would think), I would highly recommend this product.

AIRCAT 1150 Killer Torque 1/2-Inch Impact Wrench, Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Love It, Jan. 24 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Before I bought the Aircat 1150 I was using a store branded impact wrench that weighs 4 times as much and has at best half the power. Eventually this was becoming a real problem for me so I broke down and decided to order a new wrench and let me tell you, I do not regret going against the advice of my coworkers and ordering the Aircat. Not only was this impact wrench at least $120 cheaper than a 2135TiMax, it's a heck of a lot quieter and to date, I've yet to find a fastener this wrench will not budge and another will. Plus this impact wrench is durable, it's taken a few hits to the floor, gotten wet countless times and other than being dirty and having a few scratches, this wrench is still as good as the day it came out of the box.

So if you're looking for a dependable and hard hitting impact wrench that won't leave you wallet completely drained, I can't recommend the Aircat 1150 enough.

Ingersoll Rand 3101G Edge Series Air Angle Die Grinder, Black
Ingersoll Rand 3101G Edge Series Air Angle Die Grinder, Black

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, Nov. 1 2014
If you're after a 90 degree angle die grinder, the 3101G is by far one of the best choices on the market. It keeps up with the big name guys off the tool trucks that cost much more, doesn't sound like a jet engine at takeoff like the cheap ones do and is comfortable to use (doesn't get cold in your hand like the all metal body ones do).

I will say, my one major gripe is the safety release on these grinders can be difficult to disengage, especially when they are new. They do wear in with age but even a well used unit will occasionally annoy you. That said, this gripe is not enough of a problem that I would deduct a star for it.

So whether you're a professional technician or DIYer, this grinder may not carry the price tag of the "pro" grade tools, but it certainly delivers professional grade results/performance and would be a welcome addition to anyone's air tool collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the length, not the quality, Nov. 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this MicroUSB cable as a replacement for the far too short stock cable included with my Nexus 7 tablet and at first it proved to be an excellent replacement and at 3 months it outlasted a more expensive replacement cable from a local computer shop. But sadly my happiness with this product was short lived as it didn't make 6 months before the MicroUSB connector and the wire insulation parted ways leaving the wire exposed. While this does not prevent the cable from functioning correctly, it is an annoyance as it leaves the cable in a much more fragile state and as such, makes this cable a product I would not recommend unless you very infrequently use a MicroUSB cable.
