Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Got it from Martineztools.com, but cant find the link to that specific product any more. Kinda wierd since I ordered it a few days ago.

What I like about this is it's ability to pull spiral and ring shank Galvies without slipping. Somehow, these guys were able to find the perfect shape and swoop to the claws for exterior remodeling.

Really hard to explain, but this nail puller has been awesome.

Btw, it's a hundred dollars on their website. When I can find it there. No idea where else one could buy it.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Picked this up a couple weeks ago. Kombi 130 with hedge trimmer. Going to get the articulating hedge trimmer next. It is killer for knocking down blackberries and tall brush.

Those were 8-10 foot tall blackberries and less than an hour of work.

No problem. The articulating one will work even better since you can run it parallel to the ground. Which will be great at clearing electric fence lines..

Way better than a string trimmer, or even a brush blade in this instance. And the best part is it doesn't throw crap all over you.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


And here I am paying good money for black berry bushes and watering em everyday and putting cages around the damn things to keep chickens and deer off of em until they can get established.

I miss wild BlackBerry and rasberry brambles. The weeds on our property were sent here by Satan himself.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I have a customer who moved up here from California. She brought some potted blackberry plants with her to make sure she had some to plant.

They moved onto a place with 3 acres of them. Isn't so fond of them anymore.

We had about 2.5 acres of them on 5 acres of property. No tractor. It's a shifting battle. Some years I get ahead and some, like this one, I get behind.

Lots of spring and summer rain, then sun, so they are growing like crazy.

Equipment is a slippery slope. Next you will want a 4in 1 bucket, tooth bucket and forks. Then a broom to clean up after it.

I'm pretty pumped; My old 10 1/4" skil hatred is over. Looking forward to fence post trimming, gang cutting factory ends, stringers, etc.....

Already got a list and already paying to upgrade stuff. I'm still not sad relative to rental rates. Renting also makes me reconfigure my priorities/order of operations/schedule in order to maximize value and deal with their f*#king schedules.

Micro-ex, Mini-skid, and trailer were a package deal for stupid $. It was a no-brainer; I would have scrounged every last dollar if needed to make it happen. Still a lot for me to shell out at once, but........

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


For a 12v tool it is awesome.
When you switch it on you'd think, gee seems like it oughta spin faster. But even taking deeper cuts than you should it still leaves a very nice finish.
For finish work it seems excellent so far. Haven't tried it on any hardwood yet though.
For framing and such you'd be better off with an 18v. It will plane a joist just fine, leveling out a deck would eat up the batteries. Just an impression I'm getting, haven't actually tried that with this. Battery life isn't bad, but it's not great. (6ah)
I've seen reviews that recommended staying away from the little batteries in this planer.

I would start with a 4 in 1 bucket. Makes the world of difference on these little machines to be able to dump into trailers or small dump trucks.

Funny, the gun looks exactly like my Hitachi 1/4" crown stapler. Same color, same swivel air connector - which I removed.
