          One tool they probably don't have much call for is the RIDGID SuperFreeze™

          If you need to freeze a line just open the door.

                I bet it does, we don't see those kind of low temps for days on end here, but it has happened in the past (BGW = Before Global Warming). Occasionally we will get temps that never break 20°F for over a month. We' have had (by our standards) cold of below +5°F for days at a time. And since the area is not built for temps that low things start solidifying. We they thaw is when it starts to get fun.

                  you guys are making me Laugh Out Loud. my Tammy thinks i'm losing my mind. she's too late.

                  anyways, here the pics. sorry it's not much, but i like to think than we here @ HUKA are contributing to the northamerican economic recovery.

                  all brand new and they smell like the RIDGID factory.

                    i have to admit, the plastic oiler bucket was a bit of a little dissapointment. i was expecting good 'ole RIDGID steel. oh well.

                      Depends on what type of plastic I would think.
                      It might last longer than steel.
                      I wonder how it will react in the cold.

                        the worst thing you could ever do up here is, "drop the bucket"

                          I have lived in Yellowknife before (Vince lived there too) and where I live now in northern Alberta it gets almost as cold as it does up there in the winter. Not quite as cold as Rankin but we get our -40 to -50 Celsius or colder with the windchill here. We had a plastic bucket like that at the last company I worked for and it seemed to hack the winters pretty well. Love all those aluminum wrenches! thanks for the pics Vince and make sure no one steals/abuses those tools! Knowing what its like to get stuff in the NWT it will take a while to repair or replace them. Have fun plumbing my fellow Canadian cold-dweller!
