  • The single bevel runs true and straight.

    Some have voiced their concerns for safety, I've been doing this for over 20 years using insulation hangers and never had or heard of any injuries. This is a fairly common tool with many different trades. The insulation hangers are harder spring steel that will not twist up like a pretzel. They already have a beveled tip on both ends, and they are very cheap at the hardware store. I have used this to locate the squeaky floor joist below the carpet. There are so many aplications.

    No tighter than you would with any other drill bit.

  • I got a great deal on mine a few years ago on propertyroom dot com. Very few bidders so I got it for $2600 plus auction fee. I haven't used it for camping yet, but I'm getting it ready for that. I added a receiver to the back for towing and a refrigerator inside plus a third seat up front. There is lots of potential for modifications in a rig like this.It had been used as a 'Police Major Crime Unit' so it's black and white with fully functioning blue and red light bars front and back.Being diesel means it can be expensive to maintain (I fix houses not vehicles) but having all my tools with me in a securely locked box makes it all worth it.My Dog loves riding in the passenger seat.

  • I have a 95 Ford E-350 with a 7.3 Turbo Diesel that gets about 13-14 mpg. It has been an awesome work truck for the last few years.

  • 'Contractors Solvent' by De-Solv-It will remove silicone. Available at most hardware stores, it is safe on skin and smells like the skin of an Orange. The solvent is then washed off with soap and water. Use a moisturizer after rinsing your hands as it will also remove your skin oils. I use it to remove tar and tree sap from clothing as well.
