Well everyone might have known that you could get a Sortimo L-Boxx 238 for $29.50 shipped?  But I did a lot of searching and I did finally find the source!  🙂  Do not get me wrong I was a little scared.  It even came to my  house in 2 days!  WHAT!  LOL 🙂  The guy is out of Atlanta I believe?  These Sortimo boxes seem nice…. I mean Bosch Sortimo L-Boxxes.  🙂  I wish you could easily purchase inserts…. the plastic inserts not the foam inserts.  They really seem like the best case ever though?

But I wish the Dewalt cases were in the stores…. Because I might have already purchased them.  It is actually the only reason I have never pulled the trigger on the Dewalt Tough System.  The Dewalt TSTAK system looks cheap…. but the reviews claim they are good?

Purchased this the other day…. I believe a smaller unit would be more helpful.  🙂  Seems to work correctly?  I thought it would be interesting to post.  It is a 1200 ft-lb torque multiplier with a 3/4″ socket.   Weighs around 22 pounds, has a Hardigg case which is written on.  It is pretty cool though and it is also for sale.  I did call around locally and found someone that would calibrate and certify this unit for $350 if you wanted to do that before you purchased it!  LOL  🙂

Just an update but this place also claims to calibrate and A2LA certify this device also?  LINK

Miller’s Millermatic 211 Mig Welder

millermatic211review

Apparently…. the Millermatic 211 comes with the Miller M-100 Gun #248 282 which is 10 feet long ((3 m), .030 –.035 in (0.8 – 0.9 mm)).

I never realized how short 10 feet was!  LOL 🙂  Barely made it with the welder on my roof rack thing.  Also I welded some galvanized crap today.  Seemed like I needed to turn up the power a little?  But I was doing all my welding over my head and in a confined spot.  Thank goodness I purchase a Hobart Welding Jacket and a hat similar to the Lapco hat before trying to weld today.  I really could not tell exactly what I was doing…. but it seemed like my Hobart flux wire splattered 10x as bad?
