    The bead rollers are a steal at $99. They just require a little stiffening.

    Is she magnetic?

    Can you measure her thickness with a micrometer?

    Ack, tricky business that. My brother has MS, apparently exacerbated by being run over by a pickup when he was delivering newspapers as a kid. His has been in remission for a few years, but yeah, we're always afraid the phone's gonna ring someday...

    ANYWAY, geez, there you go being serious when I was just trying to use the same CK5 jokes to apply to everything... :D

    Crane....

    I'd get one of those cranes that bolt to the truck bed,and have a winch and a jack on them...
    I'm too lazy to unbolt the one I home built thats on my old flatbed from the 74 K20 I scrapped..be easier to swap the whole bed on instead..but I like the stepside beds looks on the 82 K20 much better than a rusty flatbed,even though the flatbed holds 2-3 times as much stuff..

    I'd like to have a chop saw too someday..been using an old table saw with a metal cutting blade for years..works,but you cant do angle cuts very well on long peices..

    I need a new arc welder too,but I would not buy it from Harbor Freight..:crazy:

    I agree with the cherry picker. So far, from Harbor Freight I have bought; cherry picker, tranny jack, folding saw stand, air compressor, compound sliding miter saw, hammer drill. The hammer drill lasted for 1 day drilling 1/2 holes in concrete, rest is great.
