    The snow started at 12 am and I go up to go to the bathroom at 5 am and we had 8" already and it's only halfway over. It's gonna be a great day. I'll start off with a big breakfast with a mimosa or two, then make burgers and have a killians or three, then I'm gonna drool over new tools online, then I'm gonna sleep till Friday. I love snowstorms. I need to keep the credit card in my wallet though.

    I thought my guys were hard on tools but holy crap and it's only three years old. I know oils are hard on the rubber overmolds but that thing is beat. I don't think anyone would blame a company for not honoring a warranty but it's pretty awesome that acme did.

    Anyone seen this movie yet? I saw it last night and swear that Donald Pierce fixes his arm with a Wiha precision driver. Can anyone help me confirm? https://germantoolblog.com/2017/03/14/wiha-cameo-in-logan/

    not sure how much the tool and battery talk but could be something as simple as connecting the battery to a one key tool to set it up. Then it would be good to use on any tool.

    I hope there is a big event this year for DeWALT. Replacing it with a Stanley one would be disappointing to all the DeWALT guys. I'm sure it would be a good event just not a DeWALT event haha.

    then how could they make money off you buying a new table saw in 5 years?
  26. 1 point
    I really don't know why table saw manufacturers especially high end cabinet saws don't get their beds plated with industrial hard chrome, like on hydraulic cylinders not bumpers. (not the shiny nickle plating) you could put a flash electroplate on it in seconds and it would most likely last 25+ years sliding wood across it. We used to flash plate hog heads and they lasted 10 times longer but seen 1000 time more abuse than any table saw would see in it's life time. the hard chrome would not even be noticed as under 4 or 5 thousands of an inch it is transparent and a flash plate would be probably less than half a thou

    @Conductor562 Never seen a handheld machine to fill hot dog casings before. Hmm doesn't appear to have much in terms of a meat paste storage before it goes into the casing.

    None of them will compare to the 8" corded, it's a pretty bad*** saw. The 18v we have I think was designed more for cutting like roofing tin. It would do 12ga sheet steel but it worked it pretty hard and we never really used it. That being said I know power tools have come a long ways the last 10-15 years. Even if it's not a complete replacement for the corded saw if it were somewhere in between that and the old 18v I would have a lot of use for it.

    I know I have posted it before but we just use 2 10" heavy duty angle brackets. We screwed them right to a piece of 3/4" osb in our van. Welded a tab to keep the boxes in place. Cheap and heavy duty.

    I could see them working well in a job trailer even though they are not vehicle rated

    At least they are telling you up front, not to do it. I am sure when they show up on HomeDepot.com , some idiot will install them in a van and rate it one star and tell folks why it was unsatisfactory for the job. There was another thread: that mentioned them with pictures, and a description of the differences in the brackets (on page 2). From what it sounds like the brackets are lighter because they won't be moving like on the trolley/ hand truck and taking abuse. I also think the vertical tubes come in multiple pieces instead of one piece tubes (it makes it easier and cheaper to ship with a 2 1/2 foot box instead of one 5 feet long. So the strength would be compromised there too.

    Spent yesterday turning a small project into a big one...why does that happen? Wanted to do something simple, take down a shelf and build a new one. That wound up requiring a lot more than I originally planned. Had to remove a cord holder, take down the shelf, build the new one, etc.. So...you do the normal things like take the stuff off the shelf, take the cord holder off, then rummage around looking for suitable materials to make the new shelf. Look at your wood resources, then remember you have spare shelving behind the toolboxes. Cue the circus music. Now you have to move shit out of the way to get to that stuff, which reminds you that you've been planning to redo your bench grinder mount. Now you're building a shelf and moving a grinder. As you're building the shelf and planning a new mount for the grinder you realize that if you build a decent shelf/table for the grinder you can move your drill press. So now it's three things...build a new shelf, redo the bench grinder mount, move the drill press. Now the circus music gets louder, because when you move the drill press you want to replace the piece of benchtop to get rid of the holes that's in it. You're doing four different things...no wait, make that five because you're also moving that folding picnic table and card table to new locations..no wait again, now you're doing six things because you're also rearranging the shoe storage...uh...no...seven things, because you're also moving those stupid insect and weed chemical jugs to new locations. SHIT!!! Eight things!! Because now you're building a little holder for your glue gun... Holy hell in a rickety shopping cart, this stuff is reeeeedickyoulous. Luckily I learned a long, long time ago to channel ADD into the perfect way to multi-task, because along with the simple project that turned into 30 different things you have to add into it playing with the dog, eating, bathroom breaks, etc.. It's a great way to do a shitload of stuff and get it all done without skipping a beat. A mind is a terrible thing to waste...right? So long story short the poor garage went through yet another transformation. And, you'd probably not be surprised, but you'd be surprised at how many tools you can use to do the simplest of things.
