  1. I agree California Air is quiet especially indoors. I bought a 220v air compressor 30+ years ago and the tank rusted out. Replacement tanks are not cost effective, so you might as well get a new compressor. One of the first things I bought after my tank rusted out was a California Air just because of the aluminum tank and I'm glad I did. I finally found a broken compressor with a good tank (took over 1 1/2 years) at a garage sale. Now I have to transfer the compressor to the new tank.
  2. Oh Great! Now I want a Bandsaw.
  3. Good point. I'm going to try cutting down a Diablo sawzall blade. But first I'm going to check to see if Stanley or Kobalt keyhole saw blades will fit. I measured the blade and it is 18mm or 13/16" wide.
  4. I have thought of modifying a reciprocating saw blade but so far all have been just a tad too wide. Less than 1/4" that I could grind off. But then there is the tang at the rear of the blade. My guess is that grinding would alter the temper of the blade. Unless I grind a small amount at a time, but patience is not one of my strong points and I'm not sure what would happen if I tried to snap off the tang.
  5. I have this hack saw (or utility saw?) that I got from my father. This has been a handy little saw over the years, but now there is a split in the blade making it much less stable. I have been looking for a source for some new blades for it but so far have struck out. Anyone know of what brand of saw this is? More important where I can get some new blades for it?
  6. We tried to tell them but it seems like most of these guys are hung up on stuff from Home Depot. Milwaukee makes great tools. I know cause I have a bunch of M18 & M12 tools. This light is good for a company that specializes in tools, but there are many other companies that specialize in flashlights.
  7. We all have our preferences, but in our household this is the most used tool in the house. It sits on a shelf in the utility room and the wife uses it more than I do. When she was cleaning a spot in the carpet I suggested she use this flashlight, that started her obsession with this flashlight. I will eventually get another flashlight for myself when I find one with a better throw and uses AA's. When our alarm goes off at night I grab this flashlight to see what triggered the alarm in the yard and it's great at seeking out the intruder. Generally the intruder is deer or skunks but coyotes are common visitors also. For those who don't know, the best rechargeable AA & AAA battery is Eneloop. I almost gave up on rechargeable AA's until I found Eneloops. Charge them and they will sit for a year and almost keep a full charge.
  8. Not interested in this light, too big and expensive. I get 980 lumens out of 4 AA's in a much smaller package. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?364639-Sunwayman-D40A-(XM-L2-4xAA)-Review-RUNTIMES-BEAMSHOTS-VIDEO-more
  9. My batteries are pampered, never left in the winter cold or summer heat.
  10. Did not know they made a fast charger. I just checked the HD website and can't believe how much they want for a charger. I guess I'll just wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. It's better for the battery if it's charged slowly, Right?

    I only got $11.57 Got to buy more stuff!
  12. I have used two of the Craftsman 100' hoses for eight years with no problems. Just bought a 50' for $4 after using points.
  13. Man, I can't wait till next year. So there is going to be a strange color (Yellow) in my pole barn. Now that I have some Dewalt batteries I'm starting to look at ads for Dewalt stuff. I'll have see what tools Dewalt has that Milwaukee does not.
  14. I would tell you but then I'd have to take all your Harbor Freight coupons. Look for a HD near a Harbor Freight.
  15. Find a young cashier to better your chances. I know of a HD that takes Harbor Freight coupons but it is a long drive for me. I was out and about in a area I rarely go and was turned down at two HD's. On my way home I almost did not stop at another because they have only taken the coupon once out of many tries. I went to a young cashier and she was so new she did not know how to do a competitor's match. She called over another cashier to help her and she could not get it to take. They called over another older cashier, and I figured I was screwed, but she did the discount.
