  1. My script is so bad, the lenses are about 12 mm or 1/2" thick at the edges, that will stop a bullet.

  2. Hi John D. Kelly, What is the best tools for reconditioning the hybrid batteries. We're wondering to buy one but we don't know what exactly we need as a scanning tools and reconditioning tools.

  3. Thank you for this video. In the 40 years I worked on car, trucks and tractors and backhoes I never wore any rings, watches or anything around my neck.

  4. High power, High voltage DC is scary. The arc alone from a vehicle battery will happily blind, deafen, burn, and blow you across the room.

    Would be nice if the glove tester had a pressure gauge.
