Do a tour of Main St. in L-mont one day. There are about a half dozen pawn shops on the strip.

When these cabinets show up you are going to drop by again and help me move the things right?

Well it's time to pop your pawn shop cherry. They're all different. They are very similar to thrift stores, but the products are generally better and more expensive. Most of them sell tools and with all the general contractors that went out of business after the housing crash, there are a lot of extra tools out there right now. Remember, almost all prices in pawn shops are negotiable.

Autozone also sells single sockets and has a pretty good selection at reasonable prices.

The stuff is going to sell for pennies on the dollar. Bedroom furniture as well. All top dollar stuff. Anyone PM me if interested and I will give you the time and dates. Basically liquidating an entire house.
How about some preview pic's of the nicer items?

We just bought a 2003 Taurus and need to adjust the headlights. The adjuster nut (looks like a straight hex key/allen wrench sticking out of the back of the headlight) is 4mm and my wrench set only goes down to 8mm. There really isn't enough clearance to get a socket on there, definitely not a driver. There is a specific Ford OEM-style wrench made to fit the adjuster but I think a combination wrench would work, too.

So... anyone know of a local shop around Fort Collins that might have a 4mm combination wrench in stock? I've tried the usual suspects: Sears, Harbor Freight, hardware and auto parts stores. Or, if anyone around Ft. C. has a 4mm lying around that I could borrow for a night I'd be happy to offer up a 6-pack or equivalent in return.

Edit: thanks, I was able to track one down, did the trick.

I've never been in this store but know one of the salespeople and she's good folks.
They're on Nelson, near the intersection with Ken Pratt.

As long as one of the cabinets plugs in and keeps beer cold!

I'm pretty much off for the winter - let me know.

I have persistent squeak somewhere in the linkage for the rear shock on my Connie. I've tried a few lubes on the moving bits to no avail. There are a few zerks there also.
I'd gladly hand over a few bucks to use someone's grease gun to hit those zerks. Should take me 5 minutes.
Longmont, Boulder, Loveland area would be great.

Thanks for the offers guys. I paid a visit to my buddies at Swedish Motors today and used their grease gun.
Didn't resolve the squeak though.
