TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)

We are a sick lot us "tool buyers" and I think it will help knowing that we aren't alone and there are others like us out there! I'll go first...

Hello, my name is Terry and it's been 12 hours since I bought my last tool. This past week I purchased a used 1/2" Dewalt hammer drill for $55 (it's used so I don't think it should count!) and new tool belt (I really needed it and it was one with the built in back support so I don't think that should count either since it should really be classed as a medical purchase).

Whew, that feels better getting that off my chest. I'll just sit down now and turn the podium over to...

This thread is a continuation of the original TBA Meeting.

I'll start this off.

HD had this rapid charger and 5a battery for $99. The battery alone costs more than that typically.

Is that necessary on all these closed/continued threads?
I was hoping we'd be carried over. :scooter:

I bought a DeWalt dust extractor. No, I donít have a picture at the moment.

I bought a bunch of Milwaukee bits and a distance laser measure.

Didn't get any pics.

Bought a 2 pack of fastback [emoji380] and have already lost one ****!

I know my man card may be in doubt now, but I was baking something and didn't have a mixer. Wow, now it is no longer in doubt. I think I lost it.

At least it is Black and Decker

I know, that doesn't help much.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...4a1b2aeb00.jpg

Way I look at it, baking and cooking is just another excuse to buy more tools.

After awhile it gets to the point of just how many chargers does one really need.

Was looking at the M12 screw gun 1/4 chuck , $ 59 for the kit compared to 54 for the drill, but already have 3 chargers.

I had two chargers crap out on me a while ago and I have bought quite a few tool only buys with no battery or charger, so the rapid charger will end up in the truck plugged into the inverter so I can charge quickly while working.

tgeb 11-27-2018 09:11 PM

Also, it's like getting a charger for free when you consider that the battery on its own usually sells for more. So why not, might need to loan one out one day.

$100 ?!?!? That's a good deal even for a used set. I just bought the Dewalt version and it should be here in a couple days. I'd have gone Milwaukee if I could've found any used ones here that weren't going for almost the same price as new.
