Okay a Dewalt tool review! Multi-Bit & Nut Driver Set thing…. or fake Klein? LOL :)

This is mildly car wash related!  🙂  I have been debated purchasing a smaller socket set or a nut driver set…. Well I wanted a set of smaller 1/2″ sockets so I just decided to purchase these after months.  I have an IR set I like but it is missing the smaller sockets and I want 1/2″ because I do not want 25x socket wrenchs…. You get the idea!  🙂

This is the huge Dewalt DWMT73808 multi-bit & nut driver set…. 70 pieces 1/4″.  The reason I purchased this item was for the seemingly complete nut driver set.  I believe it was one of the most complete sets out there?  It also had metric…. which is really great.  The problem is….. this thing is HUGE!

 

Besides the size…. which I should have checked first.  The hang tag is super annoying which you have to cut off…. it also has 4 little clips which are annoying.  This handle (I might be out of line here) is totally stupid and worthless.

The design of the handle is I believe a complete rip off of the Klein design. In fact only the finnish of the tool and the name makes it a Dewalt. But who know…. Stanley owns about everything right? 🙂

The first picture is the only bit I could get to fall out of place…. which is good. But the case is plastic so it will probably break right? The second picture is more of a questions…. What looks more douche?  Me wearing stupid socks with house slippers…. or me carrying this ugly thing by the handle like a dumbass?  If a handly man came to your house holding that dewalt case could you not laugh or judge him immediately?  If I came to your house wearing these stupid socks and slippers would you laugh and judge?  LOL I would!  🙂  To be honest have you seen a maintenance person ever use Dewalt tools in general?  Just saying…. Like it matters?  But it might indicate reliability?  I have burnt out a hammer drill and a grinder.  But I switched because all my batteries died. 🙂  But the real reason is DeWalt decided to not have hard cases anymore.

Anyway…. I am mixed on this item…. it is huge!  Also kind of stupid and worthless in size.  Unless it is for a home shop or somewhere you can hide it.  🙂  I am thinking I am just going to throw the stuff in my Veto tool bag to be honest.  But the nut driver set is actually really nice and complete.  It might be a purchase at only $29 from Amazon.com?  I purchased it….  I almost like it?  LOL 🙂  LINK for the item.

Well I can not help but purchase these things! It is not my FAULT! LOL :)

I feel like I should share my opinion on these Amazon Fire Kid tablets…. If you have kids?

Well Amazon is running a 20% off when you purchase 3 tablets…. sure it is a lot of them!  I tried a couple kids tablets in the past and the “free time” is really the best value anywhere!  Best money spent I believe.  I purchased 2x Fire HD 8 Kids for $130 a piece and got a crappy Fire 7 free this time.  Apparently the Fire 7 has a better screen now?  I now will have 3x Fire 7 and have never really used them…. I just purchase them because I might use them?  Sure that is stupid!  LOL 🙂  (Plus get it with “Special Offers”…. it is just a screen saver.)

I believe my problem is from long ago when there was a time when you had a pda/tablet and your flip phone.  People in this ancient time…. would pair their pda/tablet with their phone and they could do all sorts for crazy things.  Well the same stuff I could do on my PocketPC in a couple years…. this is before whatever phone Apple makes now?

So have purchased these Amazon Kids Editions tablets for years now and I have just pre-ordered my third set…. so 6 of their kid tablets! 🙂 My son broke one and he also unfortunately lost one. Amazon replaces the broken tablet no questions. When we realized we lost my sons tablet…. sure it what crappy.  But we are talking $100-130 instead of $300-400 for a Apple…. so every year now I get the new tablet and sell the old one.  Plus it has free games, videos and books (“free time”)…. I believe it is a no brainer.  My kids review for the year!  🙂  We also just purchase a Pocket Racer…. should be fun.  Bad reviews but of course my sons wants it!  All he ever watches at our house it the Amazon Fire TV when he gets to watch tv…. at my Wife’s parents house he watches tainted commercial broadcast tv!  OMG!  LOL 🙂  (We have the gaming Fire TV…. there is not very many games though.  They claim 15,000 though…. internal memory is crap also.  But I love the device.)

What happened to AWESOME Signs?


“Back in the Day” signs seemed to be way more creative than anything new.  I believe this is Glencoe, Alabama…. this is near Gadsden, Alabama.

I do not think I have any personal car wash sign pictures but you understand my point.  Nothing says mediocre like a large rectangle or circle sign…..  BORING!  BUT TWO HUGE INDIAN ARROWS WITH AN INDIAN CHIEF HEAD.  THAT HAS BAD ASS WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!  Also who wouldn’t want to eat at the “Big Chief”?  Crap besides a gas station this might be it anyway!  LOL 🙂

I quit eating chicken for years because of this…. Seriously


Well…. I eat chicken now though.  What is wrong with cramped quarters,  animals defecating on each other and not being able to stand up going to the slaughter house?  Do not get me wrong…. I was not a loser hippy, tree hugger, picketing chicken plants for the non-chicken years.  Seriously I got to go…. I need some chicken nuggets!  LOL 🙂

The real problems with a Homeowners association!

Our homeowners association is a total joke for serious reasons.  But my problem is this…. FACEBOOK!  15 posts of bitching and Craigslist post.

My favorite….
“Good afternoon,
I just want to remind everyone (and remind your kids) to use the proper neighborhood access to the nature trail and river. It is located at the end of…. I am an ass Lane. Please don’t cut through other neighbors houses.”

Sure this happened to me…. I cried my self to sleep for a month after I called the Police.  SERIOUSLY I hope this pisses me off this bad one day!  LOL 🙂  BTW I caught someone urinating on my fence (like a dog) also…. I thought that was being GREEN so you have to allow that right?  JK 🙂  I just yelled at him.

Well today…. Some annoying? kid got kicked out of their house to attempt to play the drums.  NO ONE COMPLAINED ABOUT ANNOYING PARENTS POLLUTING THE ENVIRONMENT ON FACEBOOK!  WHY!  WHY!

BTW sure I am acting like a baby (like them) but our family had to stay inside while the onslaught of hidious sound assulted us!  🙂

Stupid Hat Listing or Stupid People…. You be the judge? :)


I can not state at what point people because totally stupid…. but I believe it has happened. LOL 🙂 BTW This is the amazon.com link

Does this stupid $13 hat include a $400 GoPro Hero5 Black for FREE? LOL 🙂  2 people actually asked this question…. Why?

What is always fascinating to me is the person that will ask a question which is blatantly obvious and wait for an answer (I assume) instead of reading the provided title or description.  “Is the pen 1mm or less than 1mm?”  Why not read or look at a picture?  LINK it is scary.  LOL 🙂  I could actually go on….  I will stop.  🙂

GREAT BUILDING! WEIRD SIGN! LOL :)


I believe I was in Gadsden AL?  🙂  This was obviously a hand wash place with a hose and bucket.  Their name was “God’s Grace” Car Wash…. but their sign said “KEEP Moving FORWARD”.  What does keep moving forward ever refer to?  I like the style though.  BTW…. Yes they were still washing cars.  It was just raining today.

Looks like an old service station I guess…. $20 for “most cars” and $25 for “most trucks”.  I am not sure what that even means?  Do they accept offers…. “How about $15?”  That is normally how I get my lawn cut.  LOL 🙂

Gadsden, AL Self Serve

I am not saying my wash is any better or worse…. This self serve is behind a Exxon gas station: 936 Rainbow Dr, Gadsden, AL 35901

2x ROWE BC-200 I hate to say it…. But there is a 92.94% change that 1 or both do not work. 🙂 One has a pushed in acceptor also…. so 99.992% right? 🙂 Which means no stacker I believe.




This Turtle Wax sign is pretty cool.
