    My other main tool box I have had just as long. And to top it off, I still have a tool box I made in Metal shop in 8th grade in '84 or '85. Sits in my garage with some tools I never use.

    I got the same brochure. How about the Tool Link that tracks all your tools that you put the RFID sticker on?
     
  5. Yeah that was a cool truck. I saved the brochure just to look at. Eventually it will hit the trash. I'd love a v8 getting 20plus mpg.

    You can run a "sonde" down a pipe to locate pipes that do not have conductors in them.
    Also the device can locate live electric lines and radio frequency lines with out any transmitter needed.
    Not worth a darn for locating solenoids though!

    Cut through a sewer line today. I didn't call USA first, so it was on my tab. Fortunately I only had to put a concrete collar around the break.

    I think sonde is sound in french, but I am not familiar with a device called "sonde". Does it pick up a transmitted sound down any pipe?

    Another use of a five gallon bucket, haul concrete up small hill to make a collar around broken sewer pipe.
