Default Re: What was your last purchase?

I picked up a new toy.

My F150 died a second time and it was time to upgrade to 4 seats. I wanted the heavier chassis for a future diesel / manual swap, but this one is a 6.2 Gas.

First things:
Fluids
Remove and sell the XD wheels.
Remove and sell the Ranch Hand bumper.
Replace the radio and figure out a couple minor things.

Second thing:
Fix the F150 and sell it.

Nice ride. Let me know when you're ready to do the work and I'll be over!

School electricity test bench thingumabob from yesteryear, fully functional, according to the story saved from a skip by his pops.

Most of the stuff on a vehicle will be low amperage stuff. Probably won't see more than 30a powering a while circuit full of stuff. Most individual consumers only use a couple amps after the initial startup draw.

My power probe (powered test light) can supply up to 15a and the only thing that regularly trips it breaker are AC compressors and secondary air injection pumps, both of which use 30a dedicated circuits for power supply. Even then, I can usually power up the see vice for a few seconds before it trips my breaker.

ps. If you do ANY electrical on 12/24v systems and don't know what a power probe is, do yourself a favor and look them up. Makes electrical MUCH easier.

I'm perfectly happy to just chuck a new hose on, still well under the cost of buying a "good" reel. Esp since the Flexzilla hose is smaller and so can fit more length on the reels.

I would love a Hannay reel, they are made in a town just 20min from me, but I could never justify the cost for my operation.
Fair nuff, I thought you'd bought the actual Flexzilla hose/reel package which is pretty close in price to the RapidAir one. Just replacing a hose is another story.

Nice! I have a shitty Chineseum one from eBay and it's one of the most useful things in the garage.

Bought it off FB marketplace from a little ol' lady. A year old, but zero hours on it. Never had gas in the tank nor even oil in the case yet. Gonna fire it up today and be ready in case Florence decides to head this way.

WTF. Mattson... ... you have the worst luck with vehicles. You're even worse than poor Smoker trying to get parts built. You boys must have done something somewhere along the road. Pissed on some hallowed ground or something.
