Attention Tool Heads-USA!

If any of you are like me and into tools, www.harborfreight.com has a 1/2" pneumatic impact wrench on sale for $9.99.

In addition there is a 20% coupon floating around out there, $8.00 for something they normally sell for $25.00, couldn't refuse-plus I rode from Palm Desert to Hemet

over the San Bernardino Mts to get it-70miles of empty twisty roads.

There is also a 3/8" one on sale for $12.99

Yeah, that coupon is on this site. http://dealnews.com/

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.

Yeah, right, and tomorrow you'll probably ride to return it, because you didn't like the color or it didn't work as you expected or some other lame excuse to waste gas riding those crappy roads in SoCal...

Be real careful putting things ON with that 1/2" air wrench!

Did you remember to get some air motor oil? If not, better
go back and get some because if you want that thing to
last you need to keep it properly lubed.

And how come they got four roads going the same way?
Don't EVEN try to tell me it's the same road...

Tx for the reminder on the oil et al.

I only use it for undoing stuff-never to re-tighten, unless its lug nuts on the truck-even then I use the lowest setting. I have an auto oiler on the compressor. Didn't even know that it was important-but its working.

You caught me out-yes it lots of separate roads-but they all connect at the corners and the photo only shows the bottom third.

If you zoom out, you'll find dozens of roads south and west that are just as good, devoid of cars (other than the odd cop-they watch for bikes crossing double yellow lines). With all the twists it quite a challenge to get over the 55mph limit.

Road from Warner Springs to Borrego makes the other seem straight. May not look it from the map.
