Different than the CA air compressors. High pressure. Looks like a winner.

Iíve got both- the Estwing and the California Air 4620
Estwing does have higher pressure, using the California Air pumps-
Lots of ways to accomplish that.

3 Sanders, 1 vac, 2 hoses, a crap load of sandpaper, 3 vac bags. Oh, and the tote all the sand paper came in!

Already have the RO 90, I think one I'd the guys I learned from and have been working with might be buying the "new" one off me

I notice a lot of your iron is on pallets. Do you keep them on pallets to move around or finally anchor to the floor? If you keep 'em on pallets, does the working height make any difference, comfort wise?

Those were on those when I picked them up.

Some machines I leave on blocks when I use them, sometimes because I will move them again or they are more comfortable to use, sitting a bit higher.

Some machines are dangerous on a skid, some much better than just picking up.

Most end up on a skid if they get shipped.

Just purchased the Bosch GLM 50 laser measurer. It reads in 32nds. That's a deal breaker for me, unless I just can't find the adjustment.

How do you like the planer?

I see one in my future.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


My bosch laser measure reads in 32nds too and it drives me nuts! I just tip it back and forth a a little until it gives me the closest measurements I can actually read, for example 5/16, then I do a little math in my head to figure out that 11/32 means 5/16 heavy (plus) or whatever you want to call it. I don't think it can be changed to 1/16th as the smallest increment but I haven't really looked very hard.


The Makita planers are awesome, actually the only ones I've ever really used. This one is to replace a corded that stopped working. I was just reading that I can hook a vacuum up to the dust port, never occurred to me because it's not a fine dust so it doesn't bug me too much.

Thatís why I still have my Bosch DLR130 since it displays down to the 1/16. Some of the more expense laser tapes like the Leica will allow you to select the fraction readout. I couldnít live with a tape that defaulted to the 1/32 especially when Iím doing measurements to draw plans.
