Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Finally got my new vest... Got ripped off on the one I ordered before Christmas... Found another one I liked on ebay.
I don't know how long this one will last... It's just a poly /cotton blend... But it's just for trim so if I get a year out of it I'll be satisfied.

Get those Metal brushes from Amazon. Dirt cheap

Certainly not the best stuff in the world, but definitely useful.
Couple of things for the first aid kit, some different marking pencils, microfiber cloths, cheap batteries and glue brushes, note pads.... Just random crap I don't need at a premium price.
Oh, and I picked up some more Husky Connect organizers last week too.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I bought a box of 100 of those brushes once and thought I was set for life but I'm actually running low.

One time I did trade some with a customer who had bought a "lifetime supply" of single edge razor blades.

I'm cheaper than those brushes. I used them for glue ups when I'm doing cope and stick cabinet doors. One brush usually lasts me over a year.

Iím glad thatís a vest, At first glance they look like coveralls.

If they were coveralls, you would need a step ladder to change a door knob

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Picked up another radial arm saw. 30 bucks cause its 3 phase.

If nothing else I gotta lietz blade.

Not sure when this was made, but it's pretty cheesy compared to my 40s vintage RAS.

It's throwing off a 70s vibe to me. Not a model or serial # anywhere to be found. But most of the 60s stuff was beefier, and the 80s seemed to have more plastic.

This does say made in USA on the motor though.

Just wish I could find a similar model pictured on OWWM or something.

Considering this is my 6th concrete saw i would say that i dont ďneedĒ it either!!

This will be nice to bridge the gap between my gas saws and grinders plus i do alot of cuts in weird positions and this little guy is nice and light

I would say that dewalts flexvolt stuff is definitely a game changer for me. As a mason contractor I need all the big heavy duty stuff and dewalt has an edge with this line and I think Milwaukee definitely has an edge on the smaller more specialized tools

I promptly put the little saw to work today cutting out brickwork for a door company to install a new slightly larger door and will say that i am totally impressed with the saw. Plenty of power, well balanced and it is nice not having to fire up the gas saw.

Obviously this is not going to replace the gas one for heavy duty stuff because the battery will have its limits but for quick sporadic cuts this thing is great. It will be really nice when working on scaffolding as well

So far i give it two thumbs up

I think this is more for heavy industry use. Who even has 1" drive sockets?

I don't use it. Too much for anything I would need. It would twist heads off bolts. The largest bolts I use are 3/4" and the smaller one works fine for that. However there are times we are demoing stuff that have bolts with several layers of paint on them. This would do the trick. Even if it twisted the heads off. But it doesn't warrant buying one. A sawzall can make quick work of it.
