Got to try out my new tube bender. Bought it for installing mini splits but it works on 1/2" copper water line too ;D

I agree when it's bitter cold say in the 20s it's just cold. When it 40 and raining it's a damp cold. Hard to explain but I think it's worse then just plain cold.

Given that we had wonderful spring weather in the 70's two days ago, this is a real letdown -- 39ยบ F, wet and rainy. The cold dampness is the worst -- it gets me to the core when working in the garage. The heater helps, but I'm ready for a change ---- Come-on SPRING!!!!!

I would want to think more the areas with a port city nearby would be the likely areas to find them.    Mexico isn't too wide with shipping ports on both sides.  And a pretty liberal share of imported goods roll in. 

     For you Chapman is a better option, something rather unobtainium for others outside the distribution area.   It's all about location.

Years ago (pre 911) when flying, I often would carry on a large hard shell technicians case of hand tools. Once, I was asked what they were for and I joked that I needed them for tampering with the smoke detector in the airplane lavatory.

I don't travel by air much these days. When I do, tools are checked along with my sense of humor.
