    I have a couple of reviews that I have to finish up this week. That should help me out with a bit of a boost in points and get me a bit closer to the vac that I want.

    I need to do the exact same thing.

    Guilty as well. Although a lot of them simply had to wait til I used the actual tools, that has finally started to happen over the past few weeks.

    Same here…1 tool and accessory are waiting for a review. I probably do that on the upcoming weekend.

    I think I could right ten reviews if I had the time. Maybe once the urgent things get done on my projects I’ll get cracking at a few of them.

    If you write a review, is that your 5,000 points for the day or can you still earn your other points on top of the review points?

    Points for reviews are counted seperately. You still get all of your daily points as well.

    yah but you gotta wait till it gets posted before you get the points. Depending on the que of reviews and posts that jims has, you have to wait in line lol.

    which demo hammer, the larger one DH1020VC or 11264EVS or a cordless one?

    Who knows, it’s a thought.

    Torch might work better but the demo hammer might act like an electric version of the air hammer only quieter.

    Tried using a MAPP Gas torch, and all it did is get everything really hot. Air hammer didn’t do any thing. Was thinking a nice demo hammer may have a little bit more punch.

    Man that must of really been stuck. Mapp can usually get most things red hot not as fast as oxy acetylene but it can. An air hammer can usually do the trick too.

    Did I mention that I sprayed it for two weeks or so with PB blaster between attempts? I’ll get it, just have to focus on a couple of other things first.

    @svensshutters,
    One trick I learnt was to get the nut/bolt hot and take a crayon and let it melt and seep into the threads. This trick has helped with the removal of exhaust components and 02 sensors.

    My torsion bars have rusted into place pretty good, I bet one of those would really do the trick at knocking them out.

    That’s a good idea, never thought of it for that use, could use it for many jobs on the cars / truck tie rods and so on.

    I was looking at those a while back for like tie-rods ends or idler arm, pitman arm replacement. But I couldn’t find a pickle fork bit

    If you had a blacksmith handy you could have one made. Weld the pickle fork to a shank; the smith could look after the heat treat to bring it back to proper hardness/toughness.

    My own experience is if it’s really stuck/rusted on, no penetrating oil is going to work. It just comes down to brute force, and probably breaking stuff while trying.

    Do you think a candle would work if a guy didn’t have any crayons?

    Wax candle should do the trick, if there is no access to crayons.

    what about trying nano oil, i find that really gets into the smallest crevices and loosens it up.

    No clue what to get next, but if a deal comes thru with a Lowes add where they screwed up and I’m successful at getting them to honour it, I may be wanting to get the MA55 autofeeder.
