Quick question, Val: How much for the knowledge required to use these tools? :p

I know: Priceless!

The testers are very simple to use.
The ammeter set you simply put the gauge on the wire, turn the engine over and read the gauge. The spark tester you simply rest it on the spark plug wire and watch the sight glass for light. The circuit tester is not a typical poke n jab version but one with tips that fit into the mating connector. The nut remover set how many times have you had one of those %$#* nuts that refused to come off for being rounded. You would enjoy having the automotive test meter for engine work, it's dwell and tach for 4-6-8 cylinder engines. It's all fun stuff to use and I'll even tell you how.

A shame to sell the tools of your trade. Hard to make a living without the tools for your vocation.:confused:

Wish I needed some of these tools. Just hate to see you having to sell off your tools of your trade.

I'd like to have them all..... The problem is I don't know how to use any of them. Would probably take me a lifetime to learn. Good luck on the sale Val...

It lousy, I am trying to find work and being turned down can get depressing.
I have to make sacrifices, I think the saddest and hardest day will be when I have to put the Wing up for sale.
Yes, it does pain me to do this. But I have to do this.
If there's anything you need let me know.
Thank you all

I hear you, over qualified for wrench jobs, not enough for managment. Even though I've done the job, job title didn't reflect it.

Another thing against me is age, even though older workers are more responsible the employer cannot cheat us on payday like they can the younger ones.
I ran my own small shop for close to 10 years, as far as they are concerned its not dealership management. Running a small shop even though you close the doors each night, you still have the paper work to do at home.

I look at it this way, if I cannot find work I may as well sell the tools to the members here for their use. One less thing to deal with and bills can be paid.
It's a shame that employers play the age game when hiring. The sad thing it's the guys who bring their Wings in for service get lousy work done on their bikes.

Trikelady after reading your posts on all the different sites it seems to me just my 2cents . Just thinking what are the odds of you opening your own shop I think there would be a lot of wing owners that would love to have a person of your ability work on there bikes. As I have seen from your posts you seem to be able to give everybody help on any year bike.As you already know not to many bike repair shops will even touch an older wing.But you seem to know your way around them very well. If only you could find some one to partner up with and open your own shop. I know if I was broke down in your area Id be calling you to work on my bike. Like I said just my 2cents but may be worth a look see. Good Luck Hal

Hold on...

I think we as forum members want to buy them all. We already have $305 to send you and we would like for you to be the keeper of the tools.

Others forum members: If you would like to help, go to the tread called "Helping Trike Lady"

Ok. sorry for the shameless plug.

Hal,

That is a great idea, perhaps she can do so if we help her get over the immediate hump.

If the economy wasn't so rotten in Florida I would open another shop, but having sold all the major equipment a couple of years ago makes it rough.
