    Work Boot Repair ...part 2

    Finally found some pull over covers for my work boots. They are made by Tingley called Weather-tuff Strech Rubber Overshoes ankle high. so far so good ,kept the feet dry and didn't add too much weight to the boots. It snowed prety hard this afternoon and had 11'' of rain last week so everything is saturated. tried to find the Red Ball over shoes but they arnt available any more Mike

    Tapping small holes in an aluminum extrusion

    The procudure is good just use tap magic for aluminum instead of soap ,, it lubes the tap the best so it does not stick and polishes the threads. Mike

    Repairing my boots

    Same problem here Walked out of my work boots this week out at the farm.[bottom fell off] Had to wear sandels till I repaired them. Been buying Red Wing work boots sense 1974 and they were usually good for 2 years [top leather worn out,,holes] The last two pair of boots are crap ,, the soles rotted out on the first pair and this pair the soles pulled loose from the leather mounts around the edge [boot lip] Got out the gorllia glue and re fastened the sole were it pulled apart. Ya think the price if the boots they would be better. guess ill save the pennies and order a set of Whites custom made boots. Mike
