    Some decent Plano totes at Home Depot

    Plano's a decent brand, the 56qt have a cell / web reinforced lid structure and I was able to sit my large self down on one comfortably with no obvious flex or deflection. The much large olive totes do not have a reinforced lid. Neither has a sealed lid / gasket. For the price I think they're...

    Huh. Large format Anderson PowerPole connectors diff. colors, differently keyed?

    So I was shopping around for connector bargains, looking to gather parts to complete my front- and rear-mounted power connections to facilitate a receiver-hitch-mounted winch setup.

    So is a '9000' class winch 'enough' for a 6500# Suburban

    Is there a rule of thumb for winch capacity, besides 'more is better'? Might go 9000/9500, might go 12000/12500. Trying to gather some real-world experience info re the two classes. The winch would be an accessory on a vehicle that wont intentionally be driven places it might get majorly stuck...

    Any drone fans around here? Looking for a good source for a 'landing pad' decal

    Been intending to get a DJi Spark for several purposes, among them to take along on my drives around the desert southwest. Since I've got a Suburban with a moonroof and a solid roof deck, I'm thinking to sometimes launch and recover the thing by simply sticking it on the roof of the vehicle. So...

    An idea for a fishing pole rack / surf fishing pole holder

    Driving today I noticed this rack in the service bed of a work truck. Gardeners around here usually use PVC pipe clamped to a lumber frame. This appears to be an electrical conduit mounting / suspension rack, with its purpose-made clamps. Same sort of mount would work well for mounting an...

    Looking around at tank options to add to my Sub and surprised to find out that much higher pressure scuba tanks (3000psi+) cost about the same as a regular compressor-filled air tank (200psi) at around the same physical size. More browsing around and I learned that smaller tanks used by...
