Ya, speak of the devil. I went out to my last kitchen to put some notches in the lower drawer for the P trap (planned). This is specifically why I got this, to make a nice shaped slot. So I pack everything up, go to the house, get all my stuff out and I find out I didn't bring it with me. I don't know how the fk I didn't have it with me because I remember packing it.

So I have a little worn out 1"x1" drum on a mandrel that I had to use. Got the job done, took a lot longer, had to re-square what I sanded because it was at an angle and I was just so pissed that I didn't get to use my new toy.

But since they put the last coat on the floor 2 hours before I got there I wasn't able to do the 2 drawers on the lower level. So I have a second opportunity to forget it

Re: Christmas Tool Haul...


This Christmas was the perfect time to ask for the DeWalt xr battery oscillating tool. Still have a corded one that works fine but it's the corded tool I get out the most and anything else I get out is mostly a flexvolt or 20v tool. Love it. Also got an electric trailer jack. Didn't need it but I find myself scrambling to find things to tell ppl I want for Christmas

Re: Christmas Tool Haul...


I'm with some generally if I need it I need it now and buy it. Christmas is when I ask for the things that could've been waited on but would be nice to have now.

Lol, I bought myself the df700 last year, and then you get the box with the dominos, and then realize there's an adapter kit to use the smaller df500', so you get that, then you realize theres another bit kit, and low and behold you find yourself with t-stacks sitting on top of a lboxx dolly.

I bought myself some tools. A pipe freeze kit, a M12 propress, M12 ProPex, and a m12 pipe cutter.

Pipe freeze kit?
The practical joke opportunities with this would be epic!

That woodpeckers stuff is sweet, Iíd like their router table.

That domino is a badass tool, super precise. I donít get to use mine much.

I like that kreg jig, I used it when I built our kitchen, I also like their shelf pin jig.
