Your Canadian Ebay probably runs different promos than the USA Ebay, but help your fellow Canuck's out

Well that only took forever. Good thing they're durable. Otherwise that box they came in might show what was on the inside too.

I was definitely concerned. Toolnut did a good job packing the box. One little scratch from UPS' best efforts.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Went up to Depot today to buy a cordless Dewalt router.... Only to find it won't be available until Spring 2019. Doh. Really was set on having it today.

As a consolation prize, I got on Amazon and bought a 6AH and two 5AH batteries. I've got a second crew running full time now, so I'm adding batteries and doubles of things.

Depot price for the same three batteries was almost DOUBLE the online price, and I made sure I got Dewalt OEM batteries, not some knock offs.

Love calling Newman Whitney, they told me machine was built in 1972, that the head in it was a Wesson and that it cost 85k then. The last years they made these, late 90s, they were over 180k. Parts in stock and they can cast a part if I need anything.

My new little miter saw for in work trailer. Nothing fancy, does not take up much room and does everything I need putting in windows. My daughter likes making things and has been wanting a miter saw, so decided to buy a new one and give her my old one which is still in good shape.

Where in Blue Blazes did you find a craftsman miter saw? Is Sears still around? Is Lowes selling Craftsman miter saws?

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


If you're just doing less than occasional framing then go to Harbor Freight and get a chopsaw for $50.

If you want something for cutting trim and such go Bosch, DeWalt or Makita.
