Great Products you should know about

PostBy: mr1precision On: Thu Apr 23, 2009 7:52 pm

I thought it would be good idea to have a thread so folks could share GREAT products to enlighten other members. I have one that I'll share to get things started. I love tools and building things so I will have a bunch of things to post in the future.
I used this jig to build many of the cabinets and projects in my house. It makes the job fast, neat and simple.

STA-BIL fuel stabilizer. Great stuff! Add it to your gas in ANY engine, and it keeps the carb from gumming up. I use it in all my chainsaws, weedwackers, generator, lawnmowers, anything with an engine. It even says it works in a diesel engine, but I don't see the point in that, I never tried it in my tractor.
Walmart or any autoparts stores sell it, and interestingly, Amazom sells it with FREE shipping. See link below.

You could just run those things out of gas or have a full tank. Either is ass effective or nearly effective.

are you talking about the precision router table?

we have a rockler router table that we use at work sometimes. It is nice. could you elaborate as to what exactly you used the "tool" for and what you made?

Ya I see why you would be confused. This should be much better.

How about the new blue Sta-Bil for today's gas-o-hol crud that they're selling. It keeps the alcohol from separating out of the gas. ( Now...do we need to use the red AND blue?)

I agree, running the tank dry is best, but I feel a full tank needs Stabil if it's going to sit more then 30 days.

Freddy, I believe you are refering to the Marine Formula? I have never used it.

I had the blue first sold as a Brigs & Straten product. My dad bout a large bottle for me and it lasted a long time. It was more concentrated and/or of a different formulation than the red Sta-Bil I'm using now. The B&S stuff took less per gallon than the Sta-Bil.

I've burned gas with the lead additive in my truck as well. I add it to my 5 gal tk along with the stabilizer. I run old lawn equipment from the 60's; a Gravely L8 and two Massey-Ferguson lawn tractors. The lead additive doesn't contain any metal AFAIK, just a top end lube to keep the valves/stems lubed eg. M.Mystery Oil. No cat problems yet but have had some issues with the ethanol in the gas cutting old varnish loose and fouling the pilot jets in the bike and main gets in the w-waker and leaf blower. All old stuff but still working once I get the crap out that the ethanol breaks loose.

In keeping with the thread, I've got one of the Load Handlers I use for unloading coal as well as anything else from firewood to mulch. Works just like the video shows, no BS

In 30+ years of wintering power equipment I've never done anything other than put it in the corner till spring. Snowmobiles, lawn mowers, tractors, weed whackers, chainsaws...they have always started in the spring. My dad does it the same way. Maybe we're lucky? Dunno.

I read years ago that ATF works as well as the lead additive and have been using it in my 31 Model A and 1950 Furguson ever since.

I bought one of these power sprayers last spring for $219 and painted the body of my 2500sq' house in a weekend. I put down 7 gallons of paint in about 6 hours. I lent it out for three other houses with no troubles. I think it's a product worthy of this thread.

I finally broke down and bought a GPS because my youngest daughter plays club soccer all over New England. I ended up with a Garmin Nuvi 1260t https://buy.garmin.com/shop/alt-image.d ... ImageLarge. I can't believe how easy and accurate it is. I've been letting my oldest use it when she goes any distance in her car. I know I feel better knowing she has it. Now my mother has it and she was able to progam it with little effort. Now I'm wondering if I'll ever get it back. :)

A member of this forum used one of these "stair climbing hand trucks" to move his stove in. Wish I would have known about them before, it would have come in handy over the years.
