That's one of those things you need to do at least once.

Yup, it's one of those things that you always think about, but it really makes you think about it once you do it!

When one of your 9A, 18V batteries gets stuck in one of your tools.

On spilling fasteners.

Last year I had the tailgate down in the truck and gunned it to get across a busy intersection. Too bad I forgot about the slipery sheet of OSB in the back with box of 8 penny nails on it... I spent the next hour or two picking those up with a magnet during rush hour. I could just read the newspaper, "local contractor causes multiple flat tires and is sued for negligence/repairs", etc.

Yep. I had my dog with me. It was obviously his fault.

I did learn that the little separate containers are unbreakable... no matter how hard or how many times you throw them at the wall.

Doing soffits, fascia and new gutters. Had a steel roof put on some time back and they ran the drip edge right tight to the hangers. Ripping gutter off to get at things.

Foxit pdf reader will allow you to edit and save.

What type of editing are you trying to do?
