Dewalt rapid deploy work table underneath there somewhere. Bunch of random hardwood boards, Lathe out in the shop but the manual is pretty much the same thing, classic 4 for $20 Bessey clamps half in frame, Bacon Jerkey and some other stuff.

Agreed. The aisles at all the ones around here are so filled with cardboard displays of drill bits and other small crap that I can't get a good working man's cart down half of them. Made a huge mistake of trying to buy supplies for a job on black Friday.

Nothing wrong with a man who can feed himself and make cookies for the other contractors!!

I'd like peanut butter cookies please.

It is a used one, but in good condition. Did some repair work for neighbor lady, her husband was a contractor that got shot a few years back, and traded labor for it. She is selling off all the tools.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Santa showed up today in a big brown sleigh!

This thing sure makes some nice cuts in hardwood. I was thrown off a bit by the sound of the motor compared to the 10" cordless but she ate 2" x 3" laminated walnut, hard maple and birch blank I glued up no problem. Very stable head compared to the 10", and blades are dirt cheap so maybe I'll actually have a miter saw I can keep a decent blade in for nice pieces of wood.

Also, really digging the Harbor Freight lathe and their "Pro" turning chisel set. Once I sharpened them properly they hold an edge really well.Turned 4 bottle stopper blanks and the laminated hardwood from above into a 19" French rolling pin and sanded all of them to 600 grit in about 2 hours.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


oh and if you notice the vertical line of spots on the wall just about in line with where the lathe chuck would be... if you plan to turn some small projects ~1" diameter), you need to be up around 2200 RPM to get clean cuts. If you plan on finishing them with CA glue, as I did, be sure not to leave it at 2200 RPM when you go to apply the glue. 600 RPM is more than enough.

You picked the best cordless tool (IMHO) to start with. Only one I use any more. It sands REALLY well too, something to keep in mind if you're needing to sand something into a corner.

thats a awesome deal on a propex tool. I had just ordered one and paid way more than that for just a bare tool and 1 extra head.

I've had the old version of that and found that the, Milwaukee hit harder and faster, so I bought 2 Milwaukee tools that size for the underpinning work I do at times.

That being an new/updated version of what I had, might do better than the red tools....
