Shame you weren't closer. I put my track saw in a Dewalt tough box on day 1 and gave the Makita box to my labourer to tidy up his truck...

Couple more goodies arrived. 2 of these lights rates at 2400 lumens each (yeah right). I'm going to mount them on my old halogen tripod.

Also wanted a biscuit joiner for a very long time.

Does this count?



Had to get it delivered directly to the site but once it comes off we are going to paint and letter it.

Primarily on-site storage/advertising for our commercial projects. The majority of our commercial work is performed while the business is still open so tools and materials need to be kept somewhere else. We have rented them but decided for the cost is was a no brainer to just buy and move as needed.

When it is not on-site it can be used for overflow or short term storage at our shop.

That's a nice tool can but how do you move it around?

We have a few options. The company we bought it from also moves them, so we can hire them to pick it up and drop it off. There are a few other companies in the area that do this and there are also a few towing companies that move equipment and containers.

My best guess is it is going to be a 2-3 times a year thing. Although, if we get the next two phases of the project it is currently on, it will be on-site for another year. Maybe even with a second one.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Brand spanking new 20' trailer. Gvwr is 7000#. The trailer is 1995# alone. Has trailer brakes too. For $2450 out the door.

Per the FHP request after they grounded our other trailer. Wiring disaster. Hmm. We got 7 days to fix the truck and trailer wiring before we get fined federally. I ran and grabbed this one and we will use another truck till we can fix the issues in house. At least we will have a good back up trailer. Now time to sell out what was a back up trailer. It has old axles with no brakes. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Fml.

I'm confused. How was the FHP going to fine you federally 7 days after an incident if you aren't using the trailer?

Also what could you have done to piss off the FHP so bad because they've never messed with trailer wiring unless I didn't have break lights on my flatbed and even then only told me that the lights were out and they needed to be fixed.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Lights weren't working correctly. All they said was the work truck has a bad brake light. And the trailer lights weren't working at all. It happens when the crew drags the pig tail down the highway for five miles and it gets fixed incorrectly on the job site. Wtf.

He said he could ground us for a windshield wiper not working. Passenger wasn't wearing a seat belt. He gave us repair notices or whatever. We have to return these in to them in 7 days or we will get fined. I think it's that or turn the tags in. He said it was confusing since the tags were state and he was dot federal. He also said once the gvwr of the truck and trailer are over 10k# it becomes a dot inspection cause its classified as commercial. Once you get to like 26,100# you have to have a cdl. And if the driver doesn't have one he can go to jail. The lower guys do the non commercial stops like a Sherrifs or police officer. We had this happen about three years ago and about nine years ago. It's a work truck that's rode hard and put up in a wear house at night. Since I took the company over with the owners son I've been tooling up and getting more than one crew working so at least partner can have a crew make his check and a second crew make mine. One crew and two owners that really don't work won't pay the bills. I'm only here cause of our "goodwill" name. It makes business.

Wait, are you saying yours doesnt? Did you check the depth adjustment? Its on the left side. You can adjust it so that it doesn't cut all the way through, like making a dado cut.

yes that is what I'm saying, The dumb f*(ks did a bad casting in the mold and they had to file it down a bit but didn't file mine down enough. It was easy to fix. These pics are before I touched it.
Does you store have piles of these saws? I see my store had piles of them and then they were all gone?? Back to china to be filed more I guess??? When I got mine it was one lonely one on the shelf. I think it missed to boat out and they put the low price on it.
Did you try your out yet??

No, not yet. But it comes shipped with the blade installed, and already through the plate, and zipped tied down. You talking about the grey casting? Because the black part moves too, not just the adjustment knob.
