    Tire lifter

    Carl, OK you are gonna get me in trouble. I have 3 Milwaukee M18 impacts: one inch, 3/4 inch and half inch and I won't mention my 2 Ridgid 1/2 inch impacts. I can't help but stimulate the economy in times like these. Remember the tool hoarders axiom on tool redundancy: One is none, two is one. Look up the Milwaukee M18 1 inch impact....it's great.😁 Oh, Rickeieio, tire mounting parties can be fun. Too bad nobody came to mine. Actually, both my sons showed up when I was demounting tire number 6.....and I was really happy to see them and not have to do the last 2 by myself. Actually the tire mounting was not that bad. I got lucky and all the beads seated as soon as I shot the air to them...I guess I should have bought a lottery ticket that day with that kind of luck. I still have most of a gallon of mounting lube that we can use on your tires. Oh. I also installed installed Centramatic balancers when reinstalling the tires.πŸ˜‰ Do I know how to have fun, or what ???πŸ™„

    Tire lifter

    Roger, I have used everything imaginable over the years to lift/align heavy tire/wheel assemblys. When I replaced all 8 drive tires on my truck, this tool would have come in really handy. I used a large crowbar for the lifting/alignment and it worked well...but not as well as this tire lifter would have. I usually figure that if a tool will mostly pay for itself by allowing me to do something that I would otherwise have to pay to have done, them it merits consideration for my tool inventory. I still have my labor in the job but that doesn't change the equation much if you are a tool junkie. I do have a Milwaukee M-18 one inch impact wrench that didn't pay for itself on my 8 tire change but made it much easier. Maybe my wife won't read this, so it doesn't matter....it's a beast. I can relate to Tim the tool man Taylor. Like several others on this forum, I like tools.
  3. Paul, I am sorry to learn about your vertigo. I hope it is improving. I am also sorry to hear that you are selling your rig. We like you guys and are really going to miss you...especially Daisy. Who is going to keep me in my place and humble if you are not around ? I appreciate your warped, dry humor. I will really miss the only female who is always glad to see me and greets me with a wet kiss every time I see her...Daisy. Keep us informed on how you are doing, tell Paula Hi and give Daisy a good butt scratching for me. We wish you all the best. Charlie Lord
  4. Hooray, Jim ! It feels good to wrestle a problem into submission, doesn't it ? Hope you and Robin are doing well. Be safe, Charlie Lord
  5. I am running 12 Sailun tires, 8 on the drives of the Volvo and 4 17.5's on the fiver. I am pleased with them. Charlie
  6. Hot digity, what a lift !! It appears that the lift posts are moveable ?? I guess they would have to be to accomodate various wheelbases/ widths. It sounds like you just had a bad battery, to me. 4 new batteries should put you in the catbird seat. Charlie
  7. Carl, Thank you ! Looking forward to the rally. Charlie Lord
  8. Steve, what do you want for your TSLB and can you check on the shipping cost to 29615 ? I want to see some info on your Kentucky trailer project. Hope you are doing well. You can email me at sclordtwothousandtwo@yahoo.com. Thanks, Charlie Lord

    battery time

    Too many batteries and TIRES !! Charlie
  13. Al, you are always willing to help....thank you !! Charlie
  14. Desert, my tester does not look anything like the picture you posted. The picture is way nicer and more sophisticated than mine. Mine is just a vehicle-end recepticle with wires dangling from it but it works and is KISS [keep it simple stupid], so that I can operate it. I would love to have one like the picture but wanted one that would be simple, inexpensive, useful and easy to build with rudimentary electrical knowledge. Charlie
  15. Way to go, Dave and Shorty...you solved that problem. I'll have enough parts for some extra "special order" testers. By the way, the ones we build at the ECR WILL have a fuse in the 12 Volt wire. My beta test model didn't have a fuse but he new ones will. I think it will be fun, making them up at the rally. Charlie
