I’ve been looking for a quality set of brad point drill bits. Most of the brands are now made in China and have so much runout, they are unusable in a drill press. I just discovered Montana brand drill bits. I purchased a set on Amazon for the very affordable price of $19.99…
I hated the sheath that came with my Leatherman Wave. It was basically a strip of leather that wrapped from the front, around the back, over the top, and snapped in front. The open sides had strips of elastic to hold the tool.
I checked several of my local outdoor stores for a better sheath, and ended up settling for a nylon sheath from REI. This is the second sheath I have worn out.
I turned to the internet to find a better sheath. I purchased the original brown sheath directly from Leatherman for $6. The product description says that this sheath only fits the original Leatherman Wave. I don’t know how to tell if I have the original Wave, but mine fits nicely inside.
A front snap closes this well made leather sheath.
This is a Krikit V-belt tension gauge from Gates. Proper v-belt tension is important for belt and bearing life. This gauge can measure 30 to 150 lbs of tension on belts up to 7/8″ wide. Tests have shown that estimating is very inaccurate when adjusting belt tension.
Although newer vehicles usually have automatic belt tensioners, there are plenty of other things around the shop with v-belts. Compressors, blower drives, and shop machinery use v-belts. Use the manufacturer’s specifications for belt tension if available. I downloaded an iPhone app from Gates that can calculate belt tension.
