    My uncle used to own a large industrial tool wholesale company in the 80's and 90's. He sold out to his business partner in the late 90's, but now he is back and ready to get back into the game.

    SO, EVERYONE HERE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A TOOL GROUP BUY.

    What types of tools does everyone want? Let's get a discussion going on in this thread and see if we can't figure out something that we can sell a lot of for a crazy low price. Obviously this can't be a specialty tool, but it could be something like a set of spare wrenches, flashlights, drill bits, drills, etc. He was big into machine-shop parts and supplies in the past, but he's got connections just about everwhere so who knows what we could do.

    So, if you are interested - just reply here with some of your wants and let's see what we can come up with.

    Please list:
    - What type of tool you want
    - Please be specific
    - How many you want
    - What you're looking to pay
    - When do you need it

    I was just told that this could even include pneumatic tools (air tools) as well.

    Die grinders, impact wrenches, drills, ratchet, angle grinder. hand and pistol grip etc..

    I'm interested, would love to get some more air tools, just about anything really. Wouldn't mind a new floor jack actually.

    NOW you post this? I just bought 6-ton jack stands (rated per stand), an 8 ton bottle jack, a grease gun, and a torque wrench. Argh!

    I'm kinda looking for weird stuff ... a 9.5k Warn Winch, on board air (ideally under-hood or on-winch), some kind of organizer for my truck box so crap isn't just everywhere within it, and a roof-mounted, low-profile/aerodynamic light bar with front/rear/alley light control of all-white lighting for use as work lights ... and none of that flashing nonsense.

    - I could use some new drill bits, a new low pro floor jack, 2 more jack stands, torque wrench, air hose quick disconnects and fittings, and I'm sure I can think of more things.
    -floor jack must be over 3.5 ton, jack stands to hold a fullsize pick up, standard ft/lbs torque wrench.
    -I'd like to keep my cost under $200
    - I don't have a certain time frame, just whenever available!
