    Well, we are off to Hawaii today for about a week. Maui in specific. I will be rocking a "Tools in Action" Tee shirt one of the days and will post a picture. Then get ready for Black Friday tool sales. Oh yeah.

    1/2” Fuel Ratchet kit I won from Workshop Addict’s October giveaway showed up today. This ratchet is heavy and longer than it looks in photos/videos. Now to decide if this stays in it’s bag or into a TSTAK and with what.

    Ordered early Christmas and birthday gifts for myself mainly so I can save some money, make some Christmas gifts for family members, and because I wanted to. I ordered a DW745S table saw with stand from Home Depot for $299. It was between this and the Flexvolt; saving some money, getting a stand, and a larger blade were the deciding factors. That plus I was worried they'd announce a 10" Flexvolt next year and it would annoy me that I didn't wait. Also ordered an Empire 7 in. laser etched rafter square and 4 sets of Bessey H-Style 1/2" pipe clamp fixtures from there. About a year ago I posted about the Wen 8" drill press, and I finally bought it today for $67.79 on Amazon instead of the $72 it was a year ago. Also ordered some toggle clamps since those inexpensive ones from eBay were tiny as hell, a digital angle gauge, some Abranet sanding discs, an Irwin die stock and 1/2"-14 NPT die for threading the pipe for the pipe clamps. Last thing picked up today was a Kreg Precision Setup Bars set so I can setup the table saw and my routers for more accurate usage.

    Vise screw is here! Hard maple screw and nut. My father in law turned it on a lathe and router at his work. Came out awesome. Turns pretty smooth now. Will get even better when I put some wax on it. I laminated the hub with hickory and he cut it to a nice shape to mimick the Acer ferrous screw. I still need to drill a hole for the handle, make a garter for it, and finish it. I still have the gaming table curing the last coat of finish in the garage right now so no making saw dust at the moment. Maybe next week. We shall see. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Since I plan to resaw some 12" wide boards here soon I figured a double decker feather board was in need. I also got my vise screw from my father in law today! Woohoo! More pics and info in my building thread. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Got a few clamps from Menards. Their masterforce brand and they are big and beefy. The 12" one is $10. The 24" are $12. Bessey equivalents are at least $30 a piece and they look exactly the same. FB marketplace find. Unused Freud biscuit joiner for $40. Could have used this a few times for alignment reasons. Also received a package from @Stecorarius. Bosch recip saw and Makita brushless grinder. Took about 5 minutes to clean them up and they look like new. Thanks again! Much appreciated. #tiacrew Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Well most of you guys that have been here for a while know, several years ago I built a hearth pad for our last house’ pellet stove. Just finished grouting hearth pad number two, this will be for the 2200sf pellet stove my brother and I will install in our new home. Two pieces of three by three laminated finished ply (all I had in the shop 🤔.... I need more cabinet grade ply), a three by three of fiber cement and some ceramic tiles. All the trim is custom sized for the existing trim board (albeit two and three quarters tall). Just smoothed out the grout, now I’ll clean the glue lines, fill the nail holes (love my Dewalt 20v finish gun) with putty, rasp the joints on two sides (I am FAR from perfect) and paint the pre primed pine trim.

    Just put some headlights on my scag so i can cut in the dark. I used rough country's twin 6" light bars. Each bar is 6 400 lumen leds. Total out put is 4800 lumens. 12 volt system wired directly to the battery with an in fuse. I had to make brackets because the ones that came with would not work. All told it took me about an hour or so to install.

    I couldn't pass this up, $15 total. Lower four clamps are 2-packs of 18" from Northern tool, $5 each. $2.50 a clamp! I can't find them online so it might be in-store only.

    This is why no one respects you or cares what you have to say. Framers aren’t special. You don’t use tools any harder than a commercial/industrial electrician or any other trade for that matter. All trades work hard. Cutting 2x all day isn’t exactly as hard as you think it is. Your posts aren’t constructive, you should do back and read your responses. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    My two TSTAK II’s from Acme Tool came this morning. They were backordered for 7-10 days. I then found Zoro had a 15% off coupon and had them in stock. So I ordered three from them since I knew I needed at least five. Sadly Zoro only shipped one because someone else ( @jtkendall ) bought 3 of the 4 they had left right before me. So I ended up with 4 backordered. Zoro shipped the one then I got a email saying my two from Acme had been shipped. So three showed up this morning. Just got an email from Zoro that my other two shipped. M12 specialty tools (a.k.a. tools I don’t use often) Battery box (for now) M12 tools until I upgrade the Impact Driver and Drill in December. My 3/8″ Drive 42PC Standard & Deep Master Impact Socket Set from Sunex showed up as well.

Never used, Extra rapid charger. $30 shipped Light use never abused, I’ll throw a Diablo blade in I’m thinking 130 shipped? 2508-20 $30 2445-20 $75 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Was just about to make a thread for this. HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE!! We're not doing a damned thing, gonna sit around the house and be bored shitless. We did Thanksgiving on Saturday with the wife's family. Tomorrow is a "I don't have to go to work" day...although I still have to go back Friday.

    I have a (very) younger brother that's chosen to get his act together but can't get a job at all, when I can, I have him help on some of my side projects and occasionally as needed with my company. Kid works his ass off for me, and when I can I pass my unneeded tools to him. I'd suggest if you get rid of your tools give them to someone who needs them and will use them to put food on the table, while habitat is a worthy cause, I'd rather help someone I know.

    Router bits on sale?...yes please! Channeling my inner @BMack37. The kit came out to $9 a piece. Up cut bit was nicely priced as well. Need to see if I need anymore and try to go back tomorrow.

    Was looking to buy drill bits which goes through rebar in masonry without having to change bits. Bosch dealers were unwilling to procure such unpopular items so went to the Hilti store and bought TE-CX bits which they had in ready stock. Ended up buying their Rotary Hammer TE 7-C too . Although a more powerful Bosch unit was available at a very slightly higher price, but the Hilti service promise won me over. Of course, we don't get their famed 20-2-1 warranty and service guarantee that you guys get in the Americas, but we get the products at a quite cheaper price despite having 18% GST. The variant sold in India also includes the Quick release chuck which is another $50-60 item, which makes the deal so much sweeter. For the low price, we get a 1-1-3 service guarantee, which stands for 1 year warranty which includes any wear and tear, 1 month warranty for any repair work done and for 3 years, a max cost cap of 20% of the original tool cost in case of any repair work needed after the warranty is over. Of course, picking up and shipping the tool back is free as well and this was the deal clincher for me as I live in a rural area in India and the nearest Bosch service centre was 70kms away. The Hilti centre is 300kms away but that doesn't matter as they take care of picking up the tool and returning it after repair, if ever needed. I can now, also order anything I need from their product catalog and get it delivered at the best available price as i am buying directly from the company. I didn't expect this, but the plastic housing on the drill doesn't seem to be in line with Hilti standards -

    Lmao @Hugh Jass “we at Dewalt are proud to announce we didn’t literally steal your money, only figuratively, because you believed we’d support this platform. We’re proud to announce collusion...I mean... partnership with Milwaukee; you buy their 12v tools and they won’t make 60v tools. Everybody (who owns shares in our companies) wins!”
