Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I've had a lighted torpedo level for several years. Absolutely great for cramped dark spaces--seems odd there aren't a lot more of them on the market.

My old 4' level is dead on and won't die, or I'd have gotten one of those by now.

That is a great level. I can't stand an unlighted one now.

Or maybe it's I can't see one.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


No pictures, but over the last few months I have picked up around 3 grand worth of narrow scaffolding. Best investment ever.

Now I use it on almost every project in one way or another.

The current gig it will stay set up for 2 months or more. If I was renting it, I would be stressing the cost as it sat unused waiting for materials.

It's already paid for itself. It's kind of addicting. I want more, but don't have a use for more... yet.

I was talking with my dad about how usefully the stuff is.
Makes great storage racks when not in use.
I want to add a set that can be used as work bench. I got all metal tech scaffold.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


any one know why the one key logo is on the bottom of the battery packs?
Don't see anything online about them being one key and can't connect them to the app.

Wanted an easier way to move trailers around at the shop. Snagged this plate for our Bobcat. I think it will be what we needed. Plus made in the good ol U.S.A!

I'm working on a home with a 1300 s.f. Deck around a pool. So I bought this Milwaukee for the dust port. I'll be doing a ton of ripping. I have to say the dust collection is outstanding!!!

Did you have to buy the vac adaptor or did it come with it.

Came with it. The Milwaukee rep happened to be there when I bought it with two high capacity batteries and he opened the box to check and that's what sold me on it. He didn't even know that it had the adapter. In fact he didn't even know that dust extraction was really a thing with saws. Lol!

Sounds more like a salesman than a rep to me. You'd think he'd know the tools

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Some guys have all their drivers in bags and bits and whatnot. Got tired of hunting for stuff. From left A, B and C, usually only A and B come out of the truck unless cabinets or other finishing is involved then all three get laid out. B has just about every bit known to mankind, steps, masons, socket adapters, metric, SAE drivers etc, etc, commonly used bits already in magnetic holders and B and C I keep a couple of 5.0s for the saws and such, C has muiti tool blades and a laser tape measure my MIL gave me that I actually use once in a blue moon. You tell me. Is it a drag to carry all of these back and forth from the truck once a day or go back and forth five or six times a day?

Thought about it but that's one more heavier thing to lift into the truck, got a nagging elbow thing as it is.
