Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I didn't actually buy these so technically it's not a relapse. Found buried in the shed in a milk crate under a bunch of tarps, plastic and Black Widows. Either my fathers or grandfathers, not sure.

50th Anniversary Skilsaw 77.50. The foot is covered in oil from, I can only assume, the gearbox. Cord is crumbling and the end is clipped, so I'm guessing the trigger went out. Other saw is just an older 77, same crumbling cord but no sign of oil leaks so also assuming a bad trigger.

Thinking about taking the 50th Anniversary one apart and cleaning it up. I'll try a new trigger in the other.

The nail guns are Senco and Bostitch 18g I believe.. 1-3/8" brad nailers? If anyone knows anything about them it would be interesting to know about them. Worth cleaning up to use or sell or something?

That's a Model L stapler, they're 19 gauge. Great little stapler. Staples are a little hard to come by now a days.

Thanks. I can't find anything on this thing aside from a single youtube video of a guy replacing the o-rings, and a nailgundepot listing for 3/16" crown, 19 gauge staples. It doesn't specify they are for this gun but they come up when I search for Senco Model L.

What would this be used for on a construction/remodeling job? 19 gauge seems like it would be used for upholstery or similar.. and I know nobody in my immediate family has ever done upholstery.

Oh, also found an original Fein Turbo II that won't power on. I'm definitely going to get that thing working. Spec sheet I found says 95" water lift, 116 cfm and only 57.8dB.

No problem with them not having it but the customer service was so lousy I went to another place. Took about 5 minutes and they got the saw with 55" track, connector rails, accessory kit and an additional 55" track brought in from another store the next day. Awesome, found my new tool store... well the additional track didnt make I was really hoping to break down some ply on Monday with it... hopefully have the other track soon.

LS1019 on Bosch gravity rise is a couple months old but worth posting because it's a killer setup. Replaced my 13 year old makita slider that was falling apart. Itll be my framing miter saw now.
Whoa, I thought there was only one place in town to get decent tools... PM me or text where this new magical place is that helped you out... And don't you dare tell me it's HD.

We've got a really good NCA (National Concrete Accessories) here as well... They carry an abundance of Makita and Bosch. Super helpful staff too.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Oh yeah we ordered a ton of supplies from National and somehow instead of the PG store it went through the Loops store Just tack that extra 5 hours of driving on the PO I guess, add it to the drive to Rupert.

Edit: Also, the NCA in PG kinda sucks, service wise. Brock White gets about 95% of our business

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Drum roll..... BC Fasteners is where I got the track saw. I've driven by there a bunch but it never really registered I could buy power tools there. It's the sort of place where you need to know what you want before you go in because they'll likely have to bring it in from kelowna.

I use mine for stapling up aluminum soffit and other thinner items. I think the nose was designed for the aluminum soffit panels and the staples used to come in every soffit color you can think of.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I did the setup and made a sample door. The cope needed an 0.008" shim to make the tongue the right thickness to close up the cope nice and tight. The shoulder right now is .060" and I want to make that a bit deeper, something like .090". But everything looks good and fits tight.

Can you take a picture of the ounce markings? That's all I really care about anyway.

I dumped the lacquer thinner & paint thinner out of the 2 test cups today. No signs of softening at all.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Just spent an hour or so taking this Fein vacuum apart. Nothing appeared to be wrong with it, which was a bit odd seeing as how it did not work. I will say, the relay board is completely potted in epoxy which was nice to see. The only thing that looked janky was the tabs for the on/off and the manual/tool start which are paper thin, ~1/8" wide sprung steel that pinch the blade contacts on the potted board. I checked everything with a meter and power appeared to be going everywhere it was supposed to.. So I scuffed contact sides of the tabs with some 120 grit and pinched the tabs closed to see if it was a connection problem.

Plugged it in, and apparently it was already switched to On and Manual mode. I had to foresight to aim the exhaust port directly at my face and boy does this thing move some air. There seemed to be about 15 years worth of God knows what built up on the rotor which was more than happy to evacuate the vacuum.

Anyways, this thing is unbelievably quiet. My Nilfisk Aero 26, which I thought as quiet, is at least 2x as noisy, and if the Fein isn't a bit more powerful I would be surprised. Just gotta wash the filter and get some fleece bags for this and I think its going to be my go-to.

no idea
it was custom made for something
it looks like stuff was bolted to the steel deck, and welded on in a bunch of places

Both my Bostitch 7/16" crown staplers need repair so I just ordered this. Wish I still had my old German or Japanese made Hitachi.
