Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I'm down to my Last 2 rachets Clamps from them I bought 7-10 yrs ago from depot. Love those things. Light weight strong and compact. Great when making beams which we all the Time. I'll keep an eye out for them. Others are 60+/- Buck's which I really don't feel like dropping that kind of money on.

Bessey makes similar ones but they are plastic and "light duty" according to the reviews I've read. The Jorgensen ratchet clamps can crush hard Maple if you're not careful.

for me it was the first time using it. It was on uneven floor so it was stick framed with alot of cuts, 8 foot rip ( of coarse this is when it died) But still wasn't impressed. I cancelled my order on the flexvolt vacuum. It wouldn't handle the duty load for a large jobs. think it's 20min on 9ah. Plus I had no batterys after the trailer theft haha.
going to get the corded Milwaukee vac that Calidecks has. Best warrenty at 5 years

I find the deep ones I only fill about half way so have been purchasing the thin ones as I find them to be the right size for me

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Picked up a Makita 3ah battery today for $58. The Home Depot employees were very surprised at the $72 discount they had to give me I'm trying to decide between the DTD170Z and the 154 impact drivers. I don't feel like I need the upgrade, but it's made in Japan and currently on for $130. So I'll probably pick that up this week as well.

any issues with the thin ones not locking in as well as the other stuff?

I have twice had the 1/2 size pull away from the stack, could be coincidence that both times were with the thin ones and never happened with the others

I've found that even when working alone, the little M12 speaker has been good enough for music.
I can't work with headphones too much anymore unless I'm trimming.

The DTD170Z is a nice one , it's called the XDT12 here in the states. It is very strong.

Thanks for the input. I have been trying to decide which to get. I have to admit, the made in Japan tag is what is really the draw for me over the DTD154. Otherwise they're almost identical.

That's a pretty awesome radio man, loved it while I had it. Except the damn thing is made of sugar Be very careful using it out in any weather, the power source chit the bed on me. I've been thinking about getting another one though, just might wait for NPS19 to see if a newer bluetooth radio/charger is released (or announced and drops the price of that one )

This has been a good jobsite radio for me. Loud enough for 50k+ sqft projects.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Any good finds for pencil sharpeners that won't break the lead? How about ones capable of both round/flat.

So many renovation jobs I've come across the old hand crank pencil sharpeners in somebody's basement or attic and I kept one I keep in the garage it's awesome to this day.
