Not on THIS page?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] I was shocked to see how one of the posters responded to some help he received about a drivetrain question. I didn't think posters to this page were into that sort of thing. I can recall some earlier boards where crude exchanges took place, and I don't want this BBS to get to that point. Post your thoughts to the guy in "drivetrain questions" who seems unappreciative for the help that he gets.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Relax, Dave. We've got him out-numbered here. He dosn't stand a chance against the Moon Guys.

Re: Not on THIS page?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]I think that guy is already gone folks. What a great Board this is he didn't have a chance to provoke without getting slapped down by the folks here[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]. I havn't been with this BBS very long but I will say that it is the friendliest, most helpful and definitely the cleanest of all. Thanks to all the people who make this Board what it is.
And oh yeah, I see what you mean, it is a drag when the system goes down for a spell and worse yet--I couldn't believe how quick I was to log back on after the holidays at my in-laws[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. Keep it civil or please go to another Board.

Re: Not on THIS page?

It is very disheartening. The information I get from this BBS is invaluable. I am a complete newbie to automotive repair (as you can tell from most of my questions) and Iím like a junkie with it. I think itís wonderful that experienced people with automotive knowledge take the time to answer my questions. I tried to get one the BBS for two days before Christmas to wish all of you a happy holidays. I feel like you all are extended family, crazy uncle CJDAVE with his cool guns and trucks and moon buddyís [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] . I just want to make sure that all of you know that we, the uninformed, really do appreciate your help. On a personal note, I got a 241 piece Craftsman tool set for Christmas, Iíll have lots to work with now.
Thanks for all the help. I hope you all have a great New Year, Jeff.

Re: Not on THIS page?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] You know, overall, all things considered, Craftsman is a good choice. If you work in an auto dealership, and pull heads off cars, day after day, where there IS no room, and need all the little gazinggas that you use for unbolting the framis and pulling the froobis, then it's got to be Snap-On or Blackhawk, but I have to say that overall, our Craftsman stuff always did a good job for us, and some sets were on service trucks that hardly ever cooled off.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Not on THIS page?

I worked as a professional mechanic for years, including a stint at a Jeep dealership. Gotta admit my box has got at least as many Craftsman tools as Snap-On or Mac,etc. The tool trucks got the edge in convienience and are at least a little better in quality, but for good hand tools at a decent price it's hard to beat Craftsman. Half of my truck bought tools were only purchased because Sears didn't have a comparable tool ( like a 7" long 1/4" drive 3mm hex key that you need to adjust that @%$# Ferrari fuel injection, the only @%$# reason the tool exists!)

Re: Not on THIS page?

Jeep Head,

I don't think that was too bright of you to let us all know where we can borrow new Craftsman tools, but
now that you did, what's your street address? Never know when I might be in Albany.

As a guy who spins them for a living (Caterpillar dealership), In my opinion, Snap-on wrenches have too sharp of an edge. Give me a Mac!

Re: Not on THIS page?

I agree with CJDave. Recently heard a quote you may appreciate...Never argue with an idiot, he'll drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience. This BBS is considerably better than any other. I pick up a lot of info and it helps with the reconstruction of my CJ7. Thanks guys.
