Another Tool Show!

That's right, it's Thursday afternoon and tomorrow morning it's off to Dallas for another national tool show. I'm sure I'll see many of the same faces from the last tool show, but I always look forward to meeting one new person or seeing some new tools. I'll take lots of pictures and bring back lots of product information to share with you next week.

Here's something new I learned this week about Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems and the TREAD Act. See more information on TIA's website: There are already more than 7 million vehicles (model years 2006 and 2007) on the road that are outfitted with tire pressure monitoring systems. Even though the tires on these cars are probably too new to need replacement, you still may be faced with having to work on them - due to low inflation or for other reasons. This means, you need to know how to inflate, deflate, and change these tires without destroying the TPMS. And guess what, it's a little trickier than it used to be, it's going to take a little bit more time than it used to, and you're going to have to be a little more careful. Because no one wants to have to replace a $200-$500 TPMS that accidentally broke during tire service. Plus, you will need some new tools.

More on this later.
