    Do a chargeback (you DID pay with a credit card, right??). I don't have to unleash the wrath of Visa often but it does get attention.

    Paint curing ain't like it looks. Like old people (as you are soon to become) it's slow to get hard.

    Mister Leg is wise and a few days extra beats a hurry.

    If you prefer steel for longevity you can match sprockets from any industrial supplier and have your local machine shop bore and drill them to spec (hand them your old sprocket as a pattern). Your...

    I like that.

    They're good for all sorts of stuff. So are cheap plastic Walmart squirt bottles and "irrigation syringes".

    That's easily repairable with an insert which would make it better than new. You can find inserts which install with standard taps to save $$. I'd insert both holes while I was at it. I suggest a...

    If you don't have a longer breaker bar then use a piece of pipe over your ratchet handle (if the ratchet strips it was crap anyway, this won't bother any decent 3/8" drive ratchets). I have a wilde...

    I'm not that OCD but it is only money and would be more durable than chroming trash carbon steel.

    I buy custom kits for V8 auto engines and any different plug boots required then make what I want. A bit more fiddling at first but I like having more leads for less money plus spares on hand.

    Automotive fuel injection hose (I use Gates Barricade most of the time) works fine for gasoline, pure methanol, blends and oil. Ebay prices for cut lengths usually beat the auto store. When in doubt,...
