Yep. I have tested it up pretty well on bare aluminum I had laying around. It takes a pretty strong mix to see anything visibly, though I'm sure on some micro level it's still doing the same thing....

Well, you can leave the clamps wherever you want to. Ideally though, you'd want them as close to the work you're doing at the time. From a safety and performance perspective, that will work best.

I run "Purple Power" in mine and it seems to do the job well enough. Knock off as much loose grease/debris as possible with a brush and the air hose, then throw the part in.

I'm not so worried about the cost really, though I am still a cheap bastard :D .

Sanding belts 4x36

It appears that HD has discontinued offering the multi-packs of the 4x36 Diablo belts in the flavor I like. Instead, they are throwing 3 different grits into one bundle and sending folks out the...

Bossman bought a 2016 Tacoma, whatever the mid-level package was back then. It has the 4x4 but isn't the race-truck version he really wanted. Another one of my guys has the race-truck version in...

I find that taking the covers off switches and parts often dislodges the crap that keeps things from working correctly--particularly on those little compressors. I've saved more than a few just by...

Yup. Same story here. I can't get back to the spot where mine's buried anymore though. It's in front of the wood lathe and planer that have been sitting for much longer in that corner of the shop....

Cutter's old shop is just about cleaned out. His kids have done the darn-near-impossible. Years worth of parts, pieces, projects, toys, and tools have been sorted and relocated. I can't imagine...

That is one thing I noticed about this knob, it's too big to be used on the standard bottle jack when it's not on the press. I have the original 20T bottle for this press, unused on the floor, left...

It reminds me more of an adjustment type tool. Kinda like the brake caliper presses, but on a part that would have a 1/2" drive hole for the pin to drop into. Maybe some sort of belt tensioner?
