    Default Toolbox organizers

    Well, it's winter and I'm bored to fucking tears.
    My tool box could use some spiffing up.
    I am specifically looking for suggestion on 3/8 socket sets, ratchets, extensions, etc. Do you guys just throw the sockets on rails and let extensions flop all over? Or what.
    I was thinking of making some billet milled out pieces for ratchets and extensions to sit in.
    Looking for ideas.

    I line my tool box drawers with a rubber mesh padding and all sockets are on racks but the rest of it is just laying all over in the drawers so when you get this mystery solved, let us all take a look Wags.

    If your dyno is not up and running stop thinking about your tool box and get to work!

    All right.. all right. I was working on the fue tank/ mount. All fittings installed, pump gone through (dyno), replumbed, rewired, etc.
    Now, I was at an auction and bought a 2000 gallon water tank. The big boat guys said their 5000 tank is small at times. (they build a bunch of blown pump gas big inch efi pieces. They run their stuff before it leaves.
    Also got some hose at auction for to and from tank. SO... it is close. I just need to get motivated.

    Wags,

    Here is another alternative to the Hansen plastic socket organizers:

    The prices aren't too bad either

    2000 isn't going to get you alot of time, but the biggest factor is being able to get the heat out of the tank between sessions, or even pulls. If you don't have some means to move water thru a radiator, you'll be waiting quite a while waiting for the tank to cool off.

    Now you could always drill a few holes around the place and let the ground handle it. You can even recover it to heat your house later. I just got done doing a home with 110 holes 350-375 ft deep at a cost of about $10,000 PER HOLE!. Starting another one in about 2 months with the same number of holes. But you can probably get it done for around 6-8,000 near you.

    You'd have to dyno a slue of engines to heat a pool. By the time you pull one engine off the dyno and install another, you lost most of what you put in. Biggest reason the tanks take so long to cool off is volume to OPEN surface area is nil. 2000 gallons spread out like a pool and full exposed surface area would cool off relatively quick. However the water loss from evaporation would almost equal a total loss cooling system for the dyno. 2000 gallons covering the area of a pool at 160* doesn't stay 2000 gallons for long.

    What size is that house, 23,000 sq ft? That is a lot of geo-thermal in some really crappy ground to take that many that deep.
    So many projects, so little time

    33,000 of conditioned space. There is an additional 11,000 under ground of garage, play/game rooms bowling alley etc., and equipment rooms for HVAC, pool equipment, water heater(geo thermo heated).
    The bore holes encircle the house. The property was purchased from the City of Los Angeles. It was a scenic lookout for over 100 years. The retaining wall is original to the site and it was already pretty well graded when he purchased it. I guess the city needed the money.
