I LOVE Watching People WORK…. I could watch it all day! Well…. not all day you probably have to be outside! :)

Greg was pulling out a Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 and installing a Water Wizard 2.0.  Greg had a couple guys up at his wash which were pretty good and you can pick up some good tips just watching people…. Or harassing people!  LOL 🙂

My tips today were not from the tech guys…. but from Greg though.  Thought I would share them.

I believe everyone has had that set of sockets in that crappy case.  When that case craps out…. What do you do?  Purchase a new SET!  🙂  Well I learned the solution for my box and tool chest drawers full of sockets. (Well it probably will be easier to just purchase a new set then put it on the holder…. Right? 🙂 )

Below is how Greg demonstrated the Ernst socket holder…. I purchased it ASAP! 🙂

Another tool I would never think of having but both Greg and the tech were using was an extension for your drill or impact.  I need to pick one up it will probably come in handy. http://amzn.to/2fpljgr

I tried to figure out how to unscrew something with no clearance one time and purchase this item. http://amzn.to/2y17ufM I had to use it once…. I am surprised how many times I have grabbed this silly thing. So if this is handy…. the extension is handy also. LOL 🙂

If you are looking for sockets I just picked up some deep and shallow metric sets. Both cheap…. The Tekton are nice the Stanley came in a cheap case which did not close correctly and good luck figuring out what you are looking for. 🙂 But the Stanley were pretty cheap. I have used a 500 ft/lbs impact with no problem with the Stanley impact set…. So they are good? 🙂
