    I got this little tool from a customer.
    I have no idea what is it but it said Starrett and I had to have it in my collection.
    What do you think guys? Turn the rod either way and the inner dial where it says Starrett and patent is rotating.

    I am glad you posted this. I have the same tool sitting on shelf in my workshop. It came in box stuff I bought at auction sale several years ago. I had no idea what it was.

    That’s a tachometer, and I know you’ll be playing with it ! It’s missing the rubber end. Don’t know if a replacement is available but you may be able to fab one.

    Thanks for posting the video.
    The one I have does have the rubber tip on it.

    I found a copy of the manual for the Starrett Rpm Indicator today. That it would be nice to have.

    New chain for the chain saw today. The old one hasn’t been itself since finding those big nails in the slabs for the work bench.

    Congrats Jim what size do you have , I imagine different prices for different lengths , I wonder if they are different in price from cordless to gas chainsaws
    Or regardless if it’s gas or electric/or cordless , say 16 or what ever same price ?

    Not much of a tool, but the slow boat from China delivered my new adhesive metric scale for my new miter station, this one had both left and right reading sections and was the right price even if it was slow.

    Interesting. I wish they would make all TSTAK boxes available in the red/black Craftsman version. Still don’t have the deep drawer box in red/black unless I want to go with a McDonald’s theme. I think I am moving to a higher and higher % drawer system so the TSTAK/VERSASTACK ball bearing drawer glides is what works for me.

    It’s neat having a cool father in law. He dropped off a few things today. A Made in England Record 0110 block plane, a torque wrench, a ratchet and a rivet gun.

    Lucky bugger. My FIL was senile by the time I knew him. Think I had that same riveter many years ago but it pooched on me years ago. Just kept getting jammed. Hope you have better luck with it than I did Jim. I never needed to rivet things often either.

    Nice Jim , I haven’t seen one of those torque wrenches since my years working apprenticeship in the garage.
    Nice little haul , I’m sure you will put that block plane to good use.

    I can not find chains that say they are for my 14″ Makita cordless chainsaw at the local Fleet Farm store but they have a chain that indicates it is for a different 14″ Makita chainsaw. I tried that one and it works just fine. I don’t really know if they have a different chain for the cordless vs corded versions but from what I have experienced the gas saw chain works on the cordless so that basically makes them the same price in my opinion. I have not had any experience with the Dewalt or Milwaukee saws and how they price their chains however.

    Interesting , I don’t own a chainsaw , but is there a difference between cordless and gas in the speed of the chain ,

    I have went into my local farm supply that sells Sthil chainsaws before and got a chain for my Husqvarna chainsaw. They would make it up chain right on the spot. They just needed the length bar and model of chainsaw

    That is good question. I would say no. But once a cordless saw battery starts loosing charge then yes.

    Wow. A whole bunch of comments so I’ll try to answer without quoting everything and making this a long post.

    I have a Husqvarna 450e that takes a narrow kerf chain and has a 50cc engine and an 18″ bar.
    I don’t know about electric chainsaws, but I believe they have a slower speed.
    To get a chain you need 4 pieces of information:
    Bar length (mine is 18″)
    Drive link number (mine has 72)
    Pitch (size of chain) (mine is .325)
    Gauge (the thickness of the part of the chain that rides in the goove in the bar) (mine is .050)
    One more spec is the sharpening file diameter (mine is 3/16″)
    MOST chainsaws will have the Link #, Pitch, and Gauge marked right on the bar.
    If those aren’t there, and you know the make and model of your saw, you can look it up at the manufacturer or at the Oregon website ( https://www.oregonproducts.com/ ). Oregon makes replacement chains and bars for chainsaws, plus a whole bunch of other stuff. Good products. The chain I got was a Husqvarna brand. It was about $35 with the tax. Mine is a little more expensive due to it being a thinner kerf, but not by much. Economy of scale make more common chains a bit cheaper just because they produce so many more of them.

    As for the cool new tools from my father in law. I have a rivet gun and several ratchets and 3 block planes. I think my son will get some of this haul. The torque wrench I will keep. I will likely bring it in to get calibrated though.

    Wow that’s a lot of information Jim , thanks for your time

    I forgot to post this kit I bought , I bought a pica pencil a week and a half ago , and have been liking it so far , especially when pre fitting electronic equipment or load units that have not been pre fit.
    Especially that black marker is great.

    Kurt, I know it’s a bit of a PITA, but still, you can maybe save yourself some time and just call a Makita service center and ask.

    I find my Makita service center near me that does repairs and is their Canada headquarters also is top notch when it comes to advising on these kinds of things that would take me sometimes forever otherwise or tried and fail methods on my own.

    I could probably order them online, but the ones I have been buying work well and I can have them in a few minutes if I need one. I do find it is convenient to have the Fleet Farm store nearby. It is basically target for men but bigger. They have food, clothes, housewares, toys, a huge sporting goods area, automotive, hardware, tools and anything for yard and farm needs you would want.

    I need some new Torx bits and I mostly use the longer versions.

    Saw this on Amazon, Bosch torx bits.

    https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-ITDETV2503-Impact-Tough-Double-Ended/dp/B06XYQ2YG1/ref=sr_1_9?crid=3PTZRT4UL8VHH&keywords=bosch+torx+bit&qid=1569513553&sprefix=bosch+torx+%2Caps%2C183&sr=8-9

    Bosch ITDETV2503 3 Pc. Impact Tough 2.5 In. Torx Double-Ended Bit Set

    One bit is T15-T20, one T25 on both ends, then a T25-T30

    Would the bit end fit fine into an impact? Since it’s impact ready it has to right?

    Anyone used those?

    Are those glass panes in the middle? Do they mostly use glass panes or as I have seen in movies rice paper where the ninjas can poke a hole through to spy?
