    You may have to re-upload your user picture. Mine, at least got downgraded to junk status. As always, keep it classy, don't upload something stupid! ;)

    New Software!

    Welcome to the new DIYGK software! The import took around 5 hours, so we were down for quite some time 8/26. This new software we will find is much better. Phone support, better upload support, better everything. I'll need to spend some time 8/27 configuring it, so note that it is very rough...

    Periodic Down Time

    Howdy folks, I'm moving this software to a new version, and we will be up and down periodically while this happens. If you can't access, know that's it's because in the internet garage turning internet wrenches. :2guns: Robert So, FYI, the forum will look different. And I'm sure it will...

    Digital Calipers Cheap

    Found another deal on Amazon... $10 Bucks... After buying two calipers from harbor freight over the last few years for more than this (15-20?), I'm going to give these a shot. Both of my HF ones crapped out, and at $10 bucks, I'm in for these. Maybe better, but can't be worse! Either...

    Dremel Tool w/ Flex Shaft $20

    Crazy Deal Alert! I bought one of the HF ones a while back for more than this, and this has the flex shaft doohicky! If anyone doesn't have one of these, this is a good time to get one. I might do the same because I really want that flexible option... Enjoy...

    OBD II Scanner for Car Check Engine

    Continuing my series of super cheap Amazon finds --- I've been having a misfire with my daily driver, a 4Runner. It's been really annoying to have to drive a vehicle up to the auto parts store and get those codes read! I've been swapping the coils around and trying to narrow down what the...
