Small size, nine-position bracket ensures illumination is go anywhere on the job or at home

Mt. Prospect, Ill., August 9, 2016 There’s no place where light is more important than on the jobsite. At 420 lumens, the Bosch GLI18V-420 18V Worklight provides the brightest illumination in its class with a three LED-design. In addition, it can brighten dark work areas at different angles and offers an adjustable light beam for spot/flood applications.

The three LEDs in this worklight offer the best illumination for a pocket-sized unit so users can light virtually any hard-to-reach, dark-corner work area on the jobsite. And the Bosch GLI18V-420 Worklight provides a dial to adjust light diffusion. Users are able to shine a high-intensity spotlight on a specific area where it’s most needed or can turn a control dial to diffuse light in illuminating a larger area.

Central Pneumatic 3-Way Quick Coupling Manifold (Review)

This is Central Pneumatic’s 3-Way Quick Coupling Manifold, and it works well.

Central Pneumatic 3-Way Quick Coupling Manifold 2


The instructions on the package of the manifold instruct the user to connect it to a 3/8 inch line. This would work for anyone that runs their compressor line from their truck or van, but I know that many of you use 1/4 inch fittings.

Central Pneumatic 3-Way Quick Coupling Manifold 3


I decided to forego the 3/8 inch line part and found a 3/8″ to 1/4″ coupling, and ran it off my trusty Rolair JC10. It would be great if the manifold came with the coupling and fitting used in this review, but I’m sure they wanted to keep costs down.

Central Pneumatic 3-Way Quick Coupling Manifold 4


(Assembled with a bit of Teflon. Make sure not to torque too much, as brass fittings are quite soft.)

Central Pneumatic 3-Way Quick Coupling Manifold 5


I can’t speak to the durability of the manifold, as I have only been using it for a week, but it looks like it will hold up well.

Filed under: Demo, Mechanic Tools, New 

Dec 17, 2015

New Gearwrench multi-function ratchets have a quarter-inch ratchet head at one end and a quarter-inch ratcheting bit holder at the other, delivering famous GearWrench speed, strength, and access to help you get jobs done faster.

Speed, because these slim ratchets are sized right and designed to save you time. They let you put the right tool on the work piece faster

Strength, because you count on your tools to provide lasting reliability. And these ratchets have been tested, not just to meet, but to exceed A-S-M-E proof-torque and cycle-test requirements.

Access, because with heads less than three-quarters of an inch wide, these multi-function ratchets give you the ability to turn fasteners you just can’t reach with standard ratchets

Nine-position locking flex heads on both ends stay in position when load is applied for increased power and control in cramped spaces.

Both ends feature a 72-tooth ratchet gear, providing a five-degree swing arc for working in tight spots, and have a knurled thumb-wheel that allows you to quickly start and run down fasteners.

The ratchet head will turn sockets up to 13 millimeters or one-half inch and has a quick-release design for fast socket change-out.

The quarter-inch hex ratcheting bit holder will turn up to number four Phillips and or T40 Torx bits and features a rare-earth magnet for positive bit retention.

GearWrench multi-function ratchets are available individually in a 12-inch long-beam style for extra reach and a five-and-three-quarter-inch compact style for working in confined spaces.

A 43-piece set that includes both ratchets, a four-inch extension, 30 assorted Phillips, slotted, hex, and Torx bits, and metric sockets from four to 13 millimeters is also available.

New locking flex-head multi-function ratchets … another way that GearWrench helps you Get It Done!
