    Tool Box for the Garage?

    I have a millwakee an a harbor freight box in my shop. They are cheaply built but do work. I store my tools an accessories that rarely get used in them. I wouldn’t want to rely on them to much. If it’s light duty use they will be ok. The tools I use often are in my truck or matco service cart. I also have a lista modular drawer cabinet at work. Just sold my vidmar cabinet and snap on cart.

    Welded on a ventrac today

    I did a side job repairing a ventrac today. Basically just had to repair weld one lift arm. The operator noticed a small bend when changing attachments, an then saw a small crack on farther inspection. While doing that repair I also reenfocred the other arm. Briefly talking I mentioned I saw them on YouTube. Owner was very pleased with both his Ventracs. He couldn’t say enough good things about ventrac. He has minor complaints but admits he is impressed.

    cut metal roofing

    I would get a circular saw specifically for metal. I have a millwakee brand one an it works great. Few months ago I did several animal shelters an modified some horse stalls. Straight cuts were all metal circular saw. I had a few curved cuts I used my plasma cutter for.

    Loving school right now!

    I totally agree. People I went to high school with graduated from college. They cant find a job but still have loan payments. At the same time I had paid training an lots to do. I love my current work but if needed plenty of other companies are hiring. It's not the easiest job but I love it.

    Scroll Saws?

    My friend loves his dewalt scrollsaw. It seems to be well built an issue free from what I know. Almost all my work is metal, so I don't need one.

    Florida and Texas

    Prayers to all those affected. I went down to Texas the day after to pick up a friend. Also dropped off some donations. Words can't really describe that trip. My work is assisting a industry partner in Texas. I love the overtime, but feel for those who lost their shop.

    Helping our huricane Harvey affected crew members

    Personally I don't give to the red cross. I think they do a lot of good, but also have a lot of poorly spent funds. I do think there better then nothing. I went down there shortly after to pick up a friend. She was working there but didn't know many people an lost her apartment. She needed a place to stay an my girlfriend offered our couch till stuff gets sorted out. My moms church found out an quickly put together donations. I left with a rental box truck of diapers, chainsaws, water, etc. Wasn't sure how close I could get to pick her up an were I was dropping off stuff. She was able to get to a shelter an I was able to get somewhat close. Even before getting into Texas it was utility truck after utility truck after emergency vehicle after after united rentals flatbed, etc etc. Getting fuel in north Texas we all waited in line just sorta in silence. A few kind words from people but nobody complained. Even looks of people in cars on the road was just weird.
  11. Do we have any crew members who were affected by huricane harvey, an how so? I would like to help. I can send online giftcard if you can provide me with some sort of proof or send stuff once mail is restored. I just dropped off a box truck of church donations, an picked up a good friend. I am leaving texas today but continued prayers for those affected.

    Costco Pants

    I wish I was only paying 20 bucks for pants. Most of my clothing is flame resistant so it costs more.

    Millwakee tool chest

    Lol that was what I was thinking as I called my mom. I have my welder in the middle of the bed an my backseat is full of tools. If I wanted I could of put it on a angle on the side an just tied it down.

    Amazon prime deal days

    I ended up buying some flap disks, by benchmark abrasives. I got three packs of ten. Decided to Select the three grits they had available so 40 grit 60 grit an 80 grit. It was 71.97 before deal an after deal it was 56.37. Not the best deal compared to others but still savings. I usually buy weiller or norton flap disks when they go on sale. I am running low so figured ide try these.
