Sounds like your mate needs to figure out that people dont pay sticker lol. To pay $43k for a truck and a year later the dealer will only give him $23k means the dealer is having him over and your mate allowed it to happen. He better hope he's made of money if he does that each year. I have a mate who does the same thing though. He thinks he got a deal if he can get out paying no more than sticker. Even after i told him he should be paying a lot less. But he owns a multi million $ company so he can afford it.

believe me, I told him til I was blue in the face. I even told him what dealership in the area would give him the truck for under cost. He had to learn the hard way. typical situation of he had just gotten a huge raise so bought a new car.

I got one of these a few years ago, doing commercial millwork customers love the fact that I can match their wall paint colors perfectly.

I'm confused... Say I'm installing new crown in a room. How does that caulk gun prevent me from painting something?

Also, once paint is added is that tube garbage?

You mix the paint into the caulk and once dried the caulk matches the paint exactly. Say you have a bright blue room, color match your caulk and you won't need to do any touch ups or paint your caulk line.

Obviously you shouldn't need a bunch of caulk, but it's nice for caulking a countertop to a wall, etc

Iím confused. How do you mix the paint (with the caulk) in the tube?

I might pick one up, the only color matched caulk I can get for trim coil is quad ISO and I'm not impressed with the stuff

My lumberyard stopped carrying quad caulk because they had so many complaints and failures with it. They may have had a bad batch but I don't buy they stuff from anywhere now...

The colored caulk idea might be OK for crown molding since it's up high, but I like to paint over caulk joints since the unpainted caulk always seems to be a magnet for dirt, especially on baseboards...

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Is it too late for me? Am I beyond help? Is there a cure? I rounded up my M18 batteries so that I can number them (I figured naming them would have taken it too far) so to keep track if any are stolen or missing.

The sad part is I don't feel as if I have enough of them and want more tools and batteries (is this how Octo-mom feels?) Can I get some sort of financial aid to help my addiction (to buy more tools).

Please help!
