  1. Oh yea here's yesterday weather 106 when you count the 82% humidity
  2. Hey what's up Mike!! People would melt if there was no A/c here the humidity is crazy high here 82% yesterday and it hasn't rained in days. Its hard to say which way is more affordable there is a ton of variables to consider but it all depends on your contractor. You may not have to run duct work with a ductless but depending on how many units you need you would have to wire up each condenser which gets pricey. Lets say the way your house is built you can't do one condenser (outdoor unit) with multiple head units (indoor unit). So you would have to have three outdoor units plus wire each one, and if your electrical service can't handle that it would be a huge expense to upgrade your service. They have an inverter which is the same energy efficient technology as a mini split that is ducted and looks just like a standard A/c split system. Which may be cheaper then mini splits, because it would need less breakers added and only two units to wire up. You do have to do the duct work as well but Its much nicer than having this huge ugly machine hanging on your wall in every room of the house. Plus you would have all these crazy ugly pipe raceways on the side of your house for the refrigerant piping going to each room. I will one day change my standard units with an inverter model one day. But theres so much to consider, I think mini splits are great for one or two rooms. But to do a whole house with mini splits I believe an inverter with ductwork is a better option. Plus who want's to keep up with five mini split remotes..lol I hope this helps Mike and not confuse you more
  3. So I saw Dan's facebook video about a pair of wire strippers and a video from Klein on there YouTube page today. To say the least I'm confused because they are saying its a new product, when I bought two pairs at HD last August. That is when I took these pictures, I bought them because it had been listed as discontinued on HD website since well forever. I really wanted to try them so I would keep checking to see if HD took them off there site, or updated to a new model number. So a few months go by and I'm digging all the way in the back of shelve at HD and I see a familiar shape. Wouldn't you know its the strippers!! and two pairs!! So I bought them and was going to do a review for you guys and also show you want I thought was an extinct tool. I thought maybe someone returned them and they have just been hiding on the shelve for years. After I bought them a month goes by and all of sudden I slowly start seeing every HD stock these. At that point I'm just lost, confused, and frustrated because I have been looking for a pair for a long time and some how they came back in production and every HD has them. Funny thing is I haven't even used them yet after all this time since I use my linemans pliers for everything and have been quite busy. As an electrician your trained to use them for everything, some people call lineman pliers an electrician's hammer. So I only use strippers for wire in lighting ballast's because its hard to strip wire that gets heated up as well as wire that is outdoors in bell boxes. I guess I should find them and actually use them so that maybe I could review them for you guys one day..lol Once again I bought them last August and the pictures are from back then. New pliers I think not! Go home Klein your drunk

  7. Yea I watch alot of truck videos on the tube. My final setup will be a long time from now, theres some upgrades I want to do to the truck. But I'm just thinking of what to do right now and what to do later. I might put a floor to ceiling husky toolbox in the back against the wall right now. I measured it, looks like it might fit but its tight I want to make sure it fits because I would be mad If it didn't and I have to take it back.. lol
  8. Yes sir
  9. I wish those email's had stuff that I would be willing to buy. Like more yellow
  10. Takes money to make money!!
  11. Hopefully karma visit's them quickly
  12. Thanks man!! She still needs alot of money to set it up and some upgrades. We all need more money's lots of money's all the money's!!!
  13. So I know I always say I will try to be on here more often but its hard. But I'm swamped with work and a ton of other things. Prime example I got this truck delivered last Thursday at 9pm and have only driven it 2 miles, (yes two) since I got it. I don't have anytime to set it up and it bothers me, theres only so much time in a day. But anyway, it was frustrating trying to buy a truck locally nobody had anything work ready. I would have to buy the truck chassis and build the body which I was fine with because I want it custom. But the wait time for the body was crazy over 3 months to get a body from Knapheide factory plus install time. So I would have made three months of payments and the truck would just be sitting in there lot. The crazy thing was they had over a hundred trucks in there Miami lot waiting for body's. I wish I got video of the place it was awesome, mostly Fords and almost all diesel's. Plus buying a vehicle is not like it once was salesman use to kiss your ass now you have to kiss there's. I've been to a bunch of dealers and quotes comeback two weeks later and phone calls go unanswered. I actually was under contract with a dealer that was 2 hours away from me for a 2016 F-350 chassis. Its a long story but the manager who sold me the truck was being an ass and not returning or even answering my phone calls. So that truck went bye bye after a few different phone calls. I know I'm all over the place here but I never thought I would buy a truck online from across the country from Arizona all the way to South Florida. But with the crappy service locally and a long wait time I needed to do something. There really isn't alot of these trucks available that are work ready this dealer in Arizona was the only place that had what I was looking for. It was a fair price, I did have to pay for transport but the service was great. The transport people really dropped the ball but the world is far from perfect. So here are some pictures of what I bought and some of the other trucks I looked at and the other f-350 i had under contract. There is a YouTube walk around video I did, specs are in the video description. Hopefully I get this truck on the road soon and making money.
  14. Thanks Jimbo!! I have mixed feelings about the kit, and got it just to get into the line and wanted another recip. A man can never have enough saws, it would be used mainly for metal cutting so that sounds like bad news. After using brushless tools with 4amp hour packs exclusively for the last year and a half everyday all day. It's hard to use a brushed tool the extra run time is amazing. When I see someone using a brushed tool or use someone else's I say it junk regardless of brand name. One example was when I helped my Uncle one day running 1000 feet of EMT. He had the small DeWalt brushed hammer drill (not sure model number) with the brushed impact on 3 amp packs and 1.5 packs. We had to drill and drive tapcon's for the strap's, he had to keep swapping out packs. I had the DCD995 with 4 amp pack with a tapcon driver. So long story short he was using a hammer drill and impact because it did not have the power to drive. While I used one drill and blew him out the water and even came and helped him out with my drill at the end of the day. I think I only switched packs once, I do realize its not apples to apples but its a huge difference. He does have a DCD985 which I don't know why he was not using it. Sorry to make you read this all..lol
  15. What's up crew!! So I bought the Gen5x 5 piece combo kit yesterday from HD for $399. I thought it was always $399 but it was marked down from $499, so I bought it but don't know if I should keep it yet. My only experience with the kit was when I used my buddy's recip saw for 5 minutes last week and the spotlight. Which the spotlight is junk but most spotlight's are junk just so the manufacture can add a so called tool to there kits. So really its a 4 piece kit and I only use area lights so a spotlight is useless to me and the Ridgid spotlight is even more useless. The Ridgid spotlight is not UL listed according to the box which I don't even know how they can legally sell it. Check picture below, correct me if I am wrong. So I guess I have a few questions for you guys can this be purchased at a lower price, I think it should only be $399 and should go on sale for cheaper. If i had a coupon that would be great to save 10% or what not, I'm checking my email non-stop for a HD coupon so I can rebuy it and then open it. Second, is it wroth the money, and is it a good deal. Third how is your experience with this kit and are you happy with it?? Yay or nay tell me anything and everything you want to say, The Good bad and the ugly! I usually only buy higher end tools and the Ridgid I consider to be a lower quality tool. Thanks ahead of time crew!!!
