You're not married...otherwise you would know the woman always pushes the man around, and she only goes forward while the man is always going backwards. :whistling

"Happy wife, happy life". (I need to go make a salad for the wife...after all she is still working.)
That's funny my wife refuses to walk backwards, I'm not sure she's even capable it would probably be a disaster.

I'm torn between purchasing the Milwaukee packout backpack at almost $200+ or the Klein backpack for $99.

I just don't see myself wanting to add any packout boxes to the bottom of it to carry around.
Many seem to like the Veto packs as another option for you :cool: Pricing is above the Milwaukee though...

Edit: The slim Packout's attached to the bottom could be viable for cabling connections etc.

Well it is "harder" for a woman in heels :jester: My wife rarely wears heels, but when she does...

I bought this dust shroud for my M18 Milwaukee grinder a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Seems to be pretty sturdy.

27 bucks.



I have that shroud. It's not bad. Easy to install. The dust extraction hose adapter isn't the nicest...falls off easy. Also a little trial and error to get it flat to the surface you are grinding and keep it flat while using it. It does do a decent job containing the dust.

Gonna give these new ridgid saw horses a try.

Nice, haven't seen those yet. I have 3 or 4 sets of the Dewalts that have the 2x4 "notch" for spanning a sheet of whatever... every single one has the outside tab of the notch broken off from trying to move the horse any distance in any direction when the 2x is in the notch. I liked the old steel horses like these Ridgids but they always end up rusting at which point I don't want to handle them and they end up scrap.Probably grab a set of these when I see em.

Good deal. But I don't like that style. I guess it's the wider tape. I like the Stanley's. I don't even know if they make them anymore.

The silver Stanley 25'. I've lost a bunch and now have every tape gimmick out there trying to find one I liked as much as the Stanley.

I'm sure they make them but the Stanley just stays in the truck now and only gets used on the job.

Looked them up. Still make a 30 and a 35. The 30 is good enough for what I do. Not many rooms are longer than that. And on rare occasion I use it outside.

There is one available with a skid plate on the end of the handle to keep it level with the surface

I had a 16 or whatever they are (maybe 20?) That was great for the shop. They just fit really well in my hands. The Fatmax is my next favorite but it feels like I'm walking around with a baseball. They're not tall enough and too fat.

This is a crapshoot. But...

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M2D3D5P
DEWALT DCH293R2 20V Max XR Brushless 1-1/8” L-Shape SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Kit

At the moment, it's $274.42. (How do they pick these prices?!?)

If you look at camelcamelcamel.com, you'll see that it's usually 600 bucks. (Which is actually a sh!tty price if you consider that the 293X2, which comes with 2 9ah flexvolt batteries is around the same price.)

Risks:
- could be just a typo, and they won't sell to you at that price
- could be some sort of a strange repack where they've siphoned off one of the batteries, maybe the charger, maybe the case. (The model # is R2, which means two batteries, but the text only refers to one battery.)

Upsides:
- bare tool sells for $400, so if you get it, you're ahead
- this hits almost as hard as my corded makita rotary hammer

My finger is itching...

((edit: scratched that itch. will let y'all know if it works out.))

it's no screw up. Amazon prices are controlled by computers.
I'm sure they break contract msrp all the time.
from my experience once I buy it the price rockets back up.
