  1. This happened pretty local to me. I really hope they were not doing anything stupid like removing/pinning guards open. http://www.fox2detroit.com/news/local-news/construction-worker-dies-at-troy-home-in-accident-with-saw
  2. Home Depot

    It would also make for battery ah upgrades on tools easier. The other way leads to old stock carrying older tech sometimes.
  3. Home Depot

    Wouldn't it be simpler on inventory if they stocked bare tools and if you wanted it as a kit you picked up a battery and charger kit? They offer starter kits sometimes , but this would be different, and be worth it financially. The only other thing that would be an issue is the tool storage it would have to be a tool bag over a blow molded case.
  4. It's crazy the whole swapping out brands at big box stores. A few building supply brands seem to swap between Lowes and HD. The funny thing is power tools are the one thing that doesn't change much. TTI is still exclusive to HD.
  5. Some stores can't be bothered to move old inventory or toss it. Its really dumb when respected names license their name out to crappy products. I'm looking at you Snapon they were probably the worst offender. It was crazy how many voltages they pushed back in the day you had 12v 14.4 18 might be forgetting one it was all over the place.
  6. Scroll Saws?

    I thought Comp56 had one.
  7. Home Depot

    Wow lots of price drops wonder if tool sales are slowing, or that store could just be super slow at selling larger ticket items.
  8. Us stores that will ship to aus?

    I need to set up the Black Market Harbor Freight in Australia. Just need to avoid all the taxes you could probably make a wicked profit and sell to the guys way cheaper than local market prices. You guys do really get hosed on tool prices.
  9. As seen at Home Depot

    I want to find one and write did anyone find Chevy Chase
  10. Flexvolt Battery Won't Charge

    It's usually faster and easier shipping the item.
  11. Rocket HD

    This would be nice on a Fire Department rig too still I can't believe what Milwaukee wants for it.
  12. Where at in Michigan are you. I'm in Oakland County. May be able to help with the waterheater, if you haven't been able to do so already

    The funny this is they are doing this big construction project at the Sears by me. Part of me is whats the point. Pennys has been struggling but they are not nearly as bad of as Sears. I think 2017 might be sears last holiday season.

    We had the Builders Square Home quarters around here for a minute. Actually a former Home Quarters is a Costco now. We also had Forest City re named Handy Andy at one point also. The one thing that blows my mind is Home Depot ran 24 hour stores for a minute and I remember when all the power tools were in a tool corral at the store.
  15. DYIer looking for a good tool platform.

    Milwaukee has offered kits with one compact and one XC not perfect but a nice starter set.
