I gave him a CT hat. I neglected to tell him I lined it with tinfoil for his safety.

It's the only compassionate thing to do. Without it who knows who might tap into his brain?

He got the bargain there! If I make it there I will need a a tinfoil beanie, I hear aluminum makes better beanies though.

Today, Monday, the Dewalt DW735X planer package is $500 less $25 Dewalt deal, plus I'll get 5% cashback using Discover, so $451. Can't believe they ship that free to Hawaii.

Re: Black Friday Tool Deals.


you'll love the planer. Did it come with the extra blades?

**** is heavier than it looks.

I bought the m12 fuel impact/hammer drill+ extended battery with a free tool. I really got tired of having to go in between 3 different 12V systems to get a single job done. Just trying to be more efficient.

I just bought that this weekend and used it for the first time today, in my opinion it is a piece of crap compared to the white 12v makita that I already have. I returned it today and got the Makita 18v sub compact which is real nice and lighter than the Milwaukee. The milwaukee in not close to the white 12v makita in power, I was shocked. Now I know why they never are out for testing in the store.

Extra blades and the out feed tables. Hell of a deal. I think I paid $650 for mine a few years back.

Yes, the extra blades and out feed tables. It's still $500-$25 Dewalt discount on Amazon.

We met at Hooters and had some lunch. Talked work, family and politics.
Seeing you guys drooling over this thing and some buying 4 or 5 of them, I went and got 2 today.

Re: Black Friday Tool Deals.


I really really enjoyed having them on site. So much nicer than running up and down a ladder. Obviously it's never going to replace a ladder because of it's height, but for jobs inside a house with 8-9' ceilings it will work well. Thinking of getting more.

I don't need them, but the price is to good to pass up.

I had to stop into Lowe's and picked 2 of them up. Then was setting post on a pergola today that has to be dead nuts accurate on the top. Installed all the 6X6 long and set one platform on each side and it made cutting them a breeze. All the top beams are cross-halved so I have to do a bunch of in place dado's and these will be perfect.

I'm thinking of buy like 4 or five more so I can basically walk all the lines of the pergola without moving anything. For $100 it would take no time to make it up.

Re: Black Friday Tool Deals.


Lowe's sells the Werner. It's nice, but the legs fold over each other which makes it bulky to store. The Gorilla folds flat and is only 3 1/4" thick for storage. That's why I wanted the HD deal over the Lowe's deal.

Either way the platforms are very nice.

Yup, the old white 12v makita was a real nice drill and impact. Only reason I switched to the m12 platform was that I needed more tools. I kept 1 makita to keep in my kitchen for whatever things I might need it for.

I was using a pair of mine to install a new header for a 3 section Andersen door today. After using this new style with the longer platform and fold flat, pin locking system, I don't even want to bring my old ones along anymore.

You guys are dicks. Now I have to go buy the ones from Home Depot? They're still cheap or no? The Werner ones for 19 bucks are awesome but if I can get better ones cheap I'm all over it, especially if they're a little longer.

BTW, I got the longer hk rail and the splinter guard was already falling off. It's nice to have the longer track though. Now I think I'm going to get the smaller one too, they're so easy to carry and easy to switch out its like having several different saw's set up. Freaking proud of those tracks though. 200 for the 600 track, I thought that was kind of bull****.
