Harbor Freight Vulcan OmniPro 220 Welder Setup & Display
TheToolReview


Published on Nov 10, 2017
I made a video of the display and setup options to give those who are interested in the OmniPro a quick look at how easy it is to navigate or setup. This is a little more advanced than what most welders are used to but so are the options over conventional MIG welders.

Having owned name brand and imported welding machines, I will say this by far beats my older Millermatic 211 & 140. I can't say enough good things about this welder and the excitement still hasn't worn off.


Thanks for watching guys!!!!

MATCO Failed On Us
Koon Trucking


Published on Nov 8, 2017
On of our favorite MATCO ratchets finally failed on us. The long handled locking flex head 1/2 drive (CFR24LFT) finally met his demise. Take a look at its final YouTube video. Also be sure to watch until the end at a tool box picture and slideshow of Bobby Salvadras’ box. It’s full of good stuff your not going to want to miss that !

A video to highlight the tools I most often grab when I'm in the shop working. Over the years you accumulate a lot of tools but there are always tools that you find you like over others and these are my favorites.

Looking for a new digital multimeter that will fit my needs and my budget
MAY03LT


Published on Nov 12, 2017
Well in a very short amount of time I went from having 2 digital multimeters down to zero. So what am I looking for in a digital multimeter? How do I sort through hundreds of choices? It all comes down to what fits my needs and my budget.

I found three meters that cost under $150 that would do everything that I need in the automotive field. Then I found a used fluke 77 in mint condition that was cheaper then each of the contenders.

Once again I am not affiliated with any brand, I'm not compensated by anyone for using their products, this was 100% my experience.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned - you're going to be seeing the fluke 77 a lot.

Mac Tools VS Genius long wrenches
The HD Perspective


Published on Nov 15, 2017
In this video I compare Genius long handle box end wrenches to the Mac tools version. They are nearly identical other than a few minor differences, which leads me to believe that Genius makes the wrenches for Mac tools. So if you're looking for some nice long wrenches I would look at what Genius has to offer and save a pile of money.
