Christmas Tool Haul...


Anybody else get tools for Christmas? It's one of the primary things I ask for since it always makes my life easier. Usually I try to not buy some of the lesser expensive things around this time of year so I can put them on my list. This year the wife bought the majority of them, so it's just like I bought them



Got a second Milwaukee rover style light, magnetic base along with a gripper that will hold onto a double 2x of thinner. Refurbished Colt Router, this makes #6. Looking to have 10 of them at the shop. Couple of Extreme extension cords, 50' and 25'. Lets see if they stay as flexible as they claim because that's exactly the reason I got them.

Couple of small Whiteside router bits a 30' tape measure and a portable oscillating spindle sander.



Never knew such a creature existed. I have an edge sander which will go down to about a 1 1/2" drum. This will go from 1 1/2" to 1/2". It'll be great for furniture toekicks that are always a pain to sand or for enlarging a hole in a cabinet onsite.

Comes with a nice soft carrying case too.


Show off the Christmas tool booty if you got any.

Re: Christmas Tool Haul...


Seems like a real handy tool. Could find lots of uses once you had it. Does it come with various spindle/collet diameters? How are they graduated--1/4"/1/2"---etc.?

Could find a tool need this year. Do have some gift cards I could use if I saw something appealing here.

I am interested in a small snap cutter or something useful for backsplash tile. I have a Ryobi wet that I was given but it chips glazed tile like crazy.

OD of the drums is about 5/8", 7/8", 1 1/8", 1 5/8". I think they're 3" long.

I got the new Milwaukee backpack vac and the mini radius light.

Already put them both to work in my basement.

The Vacuum is surprisingly quite.

Re: Christmas Tool Haul...


I buy tools whenever I want them, why wait till Christmas?

I bought Dad a level cause he's got one that's 20 years old, bent, twisted, and useless (although not according to him).

Now he's at least got a chance of something he's working on being level...

I remember seeing Norm using a porter cable handheld spindle sander back in the 90s.

Bet that's gonna come in handy.
