  1. Really wide but short trailer!
  2. We call them a contour gauge in the US. They're also fairly cheap, under $10 at Lowe's or Home Depot.
  3. Milwaukee is updating their clips: Dewalt is always slow on this kind of stuff, so expect it in a few years for team Yellow.
  4. eBay?? I've been trying hard not to bite on those, I don't REALLY need them.

  6. Nice, I'm torn. I don't really use my 2704 very often because of the size and weight but when I use it the chuck sucks. So do I sell it and buy a Gen 3, smaller and more powerful or buy a chuck and upgrade a drill I don't use often.
  7. I'm not really sure what those heavy duty flat rivets are called and if they are even usable outside of a factory with a press. You can use a usual pop rivet and cut off the sleeve then use a body hammer to flatten the ball. You may want to try a metal working/machining forum for this particular question...and try to be specific, the answers can change wildly with gauge of aluminum and stress load. I don't think there is a two-piece rivet for high stress fastening, I think they're all heated and hammered...but I could be wrong.
  8. Double cap. You use a punch an a little button anvil to assemble. I'd recommend aluminum because of something called galvanic corrosion, it can cause rust if the coating of the rivet wears off and contacts the aluminum. The aluminum and plastic will work fine also. This is an example of the kind of rivet in a set on Amazon, though I don't think any of them are aluminum. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0771JN7S1
  9. You can keep your anonymity on Instagram. No real names needed, you can link it to your facebook but you can also just use email. I generally check it before work and after work, then a few times later in the night as I get bored. Turn off notifications and you will check it at your own pace. If you follow less than 400 people, it's really not that much content to go through. I follow over 1,000 and I can look at my whole feed in under 15 mins...minus the live videos stuff, that stuff can take a long time to go through(I mostly avoid that portion). I totally get the anonymity thing, I frequently search my real name and remove all content I find. It's the curse of having a unique last name, if you search for me you only get me. I also had a female stalker, it's creepy as hell.
  10. It's fairly old but some manufacters kept making that style into the 50s. I''d guess 20s-30s. I know it's not Snap On, though they had a similar style. Are there any text on it? Indestro, New Britain, Husky, Starrett, Blackhawk, Plomb and many brands that most never heard of were making ratchets similar to that.
  11. I'd just be echo-ing what was said above. Most of us have reconnected on instagram and it's easier to keep up there. You also get to know more about your friends other than through PMs, you get to see what they're up to daily. I do miss the heyday of this forum, this was a pretty special place..
  12. I'm a Milwaukee fan boy and have lots of M18 and M12 tools, the 18 gauge nailer was the first and only Milwaukee tool I thought was absolute garbage. It jammed constantly, it would make it maybe 10 1" nails before jamming, as the nails got longer it would jam more frequently. I ended up sticking with pneumatic.
  13. I absolutely agree with this. As long as you do research, there are some really good buys at HF. Some can be found here:
