Last thread went better than expected, let's do it again.

The fuel line of Milwaukee shit came out as I was quitting, are they any good? My older 1/4" impact's still works great today and I beat the shit out of them. Been wanting to pick up the 1/2" eventually.
I like the fuel line.
The 18v 1/2" fuel spanks just about every other cordless on the market right now, the only one that matches it is the newest offering from Dewalt.
I want to see a "fuel" update to their cordless ratchets; I fucking love the current 3/8 model, I'd buy a new model with more torque/speed without a second thought.

As much as Mavis will probably suck, the location I was sent to is right by the twisties so I can dagumi after work. Gonna keep an eye out in local classifieds for an actual shop while I work at the Mavis but in the same general area because muh touge. Also I hope I never have to do any HVAC or steering related work an a tc ever again.
I have a Husky 1/2" with up to 500ft-lbs, the fuel I picked up while our Air Compressor was down runs circles around my air impact and the Snap On impacts that my coworkers use.
My box sucks, no writing surface, falling apart after 5 months, half the drawers don't close and can't handle any more weight. After I finish paying off my Milwaukee Impact I'm upgrading to a new box and getting a side cabinet, and a shelf, I need a writin' surface badly.
>College kid as well as mechanic
My professors at my college(I go to school for auto-engineering) tell me the same thing, and that they are still payin' off their stuff.

You fucked up, check out a full drawer Sunex roll cart, infinitely better than Kobalt. Don't buy anything off the truck if you can help it - you get fucked on price almost twice over.
>Milwaukee love in
I just bought the M12 Fuel 3/8 impact and hammer drill after using a coworkers set at work. Makes overhauling 3500 cylinder heads a breeze due to the small size and decent torque output.

Why are these people so fucking stupid?
Picked up a neat little Sunex table.
Good table, but it ships in a cardboard box with no protection, and it's a bit beat up.
Anyone else rocking a 44" Harbor Fright box?
I've had mine for almost a year and it's starting to get full, along with my ~30" top box.
44" top box first or go for the 72" HF box?
Also, it's yearly inspection time for the cab fleet the garage services. I'm ordering rotors by the truckload.
How tall is that writing surface on that Milwaukee box? I've been wanting to get a new box. Been looking at a macimizer because of the nice height (I'm 6'4) hate bending down writing shit on my tech series.
I'm about 6ft 3" with my boots on, the hutch's shelf is pretty good height for writing for me.
It's not great for writing on unless you've got a clip board though, the black is a foam cover.
It has a drawer with a hard metal work surface (top box, left side, bottom drawer) - but that's not really at the ideal height IMO.
E-Z Red double extra long locking flex head, it's $35 and it's awesome.
