Title: Tool Bin
Post by: StreamFixer on January 23, 2015, 10:11:52 AM
This thread is for the express purpose of exchanging tools that seem to be unique to the Arima community.

Some basic rules: 

This is not a place to discuss the merits of tools or their prices or quality. 

If you have a tool that you are willing to loan or part with that is sometimes needed in doing work on our boats, this is the place to find it.  As an example.  I have a 4" hole say (cost $35 +/-).  I have used it twice and do not see a need for it in my future.  I will post in on here...  I also have a Yamaha T-8 shop manual ($80) that I think I am done with.

If you are interested in participating, it would be helpful to have you general location,  as in community & state.

This thread is an experiment.  If it does not work out, it will likely go away.

OK, I have a 3" hole saw blade. I bought it to install the Baystar hydraulic steering.  None of my neighbors had the 3" blade.  Anyway, there's a good chance I'll never use this blade again so I don't mind selling it or just loaning it out.  Al

I have a right angle drill. Good for tight spots.

I have a cheap high speed grinder with cutting disks that I purchased from Harbor Freight Tools.

If you have to remove a frozen steering cable, save yourself a lot of hassle and just cut it off!

Anybody have a good set of wire strippers and good quality crimpers I can borrow?

I have the crimpers to loan out to do these type of fittings which are great for bait pumps et cetera.

Catching me when I'm at home is the trick.

I'm retired and live in the Tacoma area and have a small (very) home welding shop.  I am not a business. I have a cnc plasma cutter and can cut small parts of SS and mild steel.  I also have ss (mig) welding capabilities.  I would be glad to give someone a hand with a small project or repair that no one else wants to touch.  If it is a very small weld or part cut (your material) we are talking free.  If it is larger job, beer may be required!..........Russ K.

Wish you were by me. Seems there is always some item that could use a weld but I usually end up replacing.

We have a constant barrage of "guests" on our forum.  Most from Russia, China, Lithuania and the like.  We suspect they are phishing for e-mail addresses and phone numbers to put into data bases that they well to any interested party.  Please do not post this information on here, but if you do, please do not turn to us if you end up being targeted by such folks...   :stooges:

When you cut that cable....Careful not to get grinding dust on your fiberglass or you'll have little rusty spots all over your boat.

Anyone in the Portland/Vancouver or Ventura Ca (for hand tools) that is in need of tools let me know.  I have quite the collection from over the years.   I just added a gelcoat cup gun for anyone who needs one.   I am willing to ship stuff as well.
