Did I leave this tool somewhere?

I hate it when I do this, but last night when I finally made it home I decided to do a couple more things in the garage, and when I tried to pull off the steering wheel I went to grab my harmonic balancer puller/steering wheel puller. Couldn't find it nowhere. So, before I buy another one (had this last one about 30+ years) figured I'd ask if maybe I left it somewhere. Can't honestly remember when I used it last.

I know once I replace it the old one will magically appear.

It can be frustrating when you can't find/use your own tools. Good luck with your search.

My latest tool purchase was upgraded tanks for my oxygen/acetylene set up. My old tanks were tiny and I was wearing a path to the welding shop for refills. These are the perfect size while still being portable.

As Jeff takes this picture with the same puller I'm missing on the floor under the tire of his motorcycle.

You are a funny man, Jeff.

You don't think he did that intentionally do you? LOL Jeff, where did you get your tanks. I need some. Larry

I thought some may recall the story of the missing engine leveler chains from a few years ago. When I knew I had the same puller, I couldn't resist.

Roger, you are welcome to borrow my puller. I too have had this one for about 20 years. The packaging wasn't quite the same as what you had pictured so I was sure to keep that different part cropped out of the photo.

Larry, I bought my small tanks from Praxair in Seattle in 1996. When I just upgraded to the larger size, they gave me full price trade in. They have always been great to work with. I think they have branches all over.



BTW, here is the engine leveler chain story, end of page 6...

I remembered that story, but not loaning you my puller, so Larry, when Jeff replied I thought Hmm... Where's Waldo?

Last I remember using it was at Gene's sons place. Probably still there. I made a steering wheel puller on Wednesday so I'm good for now.

I have larger tanks than Jeff and I too bought them from Praxair. They have a store in Everett too, but are scattered everywhere. Been to the Ballard store many times.

Due to some festering confusion, I wanted to post a picture of my Craftsman puller in it’s full, different that Roger’s, packaging.

It is where it has always been, tucked in the drawer, next to its other Sears cousins and my vintage Snap 6 meter

To be clear, the picture I posted back then was from off the Internet. I didn't have mine to photograph. Mine looked EXACTLY like the set (of mine) you now have. Same wrinkle in the plastic package I had on mine in exactly the same spot. I knew it! Nice try Jeff. But that's fine, you can have them. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday.



(Disclaimer: This back and forth between Jeff and I is the same as, but way different and less deadly, than the Hatfield and McCoy feud. It will fester long after we are gone - carried on by our relatives. Sorry you all have to see this display of ill-will. And in case you were concerned, you can rest assured this is all in jest and Jeff and I are just having fun. Really we are. But see if I ever loan him a tool again.)

I see I gotta take this to the next level. Remember I am married to an accountant. I’ll submit my request for the 1995 receipt from the now closed SODO Sears.

Broke my heart when that place closed... was my go to for two decades.

Last year I went the the Sears in South Center and was again heartbroken to see all the empty shelves and pegs. I don’t want to have that vision be the lasting memory of my once “Happy Place”.
