  1. What tools did you buy today?

    Exactly the same with different colored handles, they make the Kreg clamps.
  2. What tools did you buy today?

    They are the Kreg automaxx, same manufacturer. The regular locking pliers, are different (Kreg doesn't offer them). The curved jaw is made in Taiwan and are REALLY nice, about as good as Grip-On/Snap-On and Knipex in feel, jury out on durability. The thin jaw is made in China and closer to Irwin quality, sloppy in the jaws.
  3. Happy Thanksgiving !

    Happy thanksgiving guys!
  4. What tools did you buy today?

    Knipex is a gift from Sears. 3.Peaks locking pliers is 1 of 2 I'm waiting for from Japan: Like Engineer's screw gripping pliers but a locking plier...bought these a month ago, two weeks ago Engineer released their version. Armor Tools locking pliers (OEM for Kreg automaxx), IG giveaway:
  5. Home Depot

    Here's the biggest Home Depot deal, very your milage may vary penny deals. Here's a read-up of how it works: http://www.pennypup.com/home-depot/ If you find something please share!

  6. Thanks! I use a clipboard everyday and figured they'd be a great first project(s) to get the planer process down. I'm pretty proud how they turned out considering they're the first four of anything like that I've ever made. One has sprung a couple MMs but I expected it with how thin they are(1/4") after putting a healthy soak of oil.
  7. Gaming table guild build

    That looks awesome man!
  8. Lumber rack

    That's an awesome deal, what I need is a good deal on more space in the garage haha.
  9. What tools did you buy today?

    I was a little surprised by how nice it seemed out of the box. I added a washer to the table leveling hardware and that's it.
  10. What tools did you buy today?

    Sort gift from Sears, had to throw $50 bucks in on this little guy. Only using it really to cut wood but a hell of a lot safer than clamping a jigsaw in a jawhorse!
  11. What tools did you buy today?

    I already used it once, game changer!
  12. What tools did you buy today?

    haha you have Trump baby hands! They're nice but for whatever reason the rod is recessed into the handle a bit, not the best QC there. I don't love the chrome on the tip. Keep an eye on Amazon, I got mine for under $8 shipped.
  13. Going to Maui!

    There is a HD and Lowe's there! Also a rather large Ace! There are a lot of good places to get shaved ice but my favorite is in Kihei, you'll never think of shaved ice as the same again. The biggest must have, malasadas. These are like beignets but with cane sugar instead of powered and better. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Home+Maid+Bakery/@20.8133701,-156.4977125,12z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1smaui+malasadas!3m4!1s0x0:0x5bac64a14facdc7e!8m2!3d20.8995707!4d-156.4886999 Try the beef teriyaki basically anywhere, it's uniquely Hawaii and delicious. Also portuguese sausage and eggs breakfast...and loco moco. TRY THE SPAM DISHES, they know what they're doing and it's a hell of a lot better than what you've had on the mainland. Cone sushi is my snack in Hawaii, I can't get enough of it: My Dad was from Maui, I've been several times.
  14. If it's going to be the back of the drawer, just go for it, it's hidden. Back of the night stand? Drill from the outside, then it's hidden. No need to worry about tear out on this imo.
  15. Customer Service - Who is the Best?

    HD is mostly good. Lowe's is awful. I've heard the inverse of this which confirms it has a lot to do with management, assistant managers, store managers and general manager.
  16. What tools did you buy today?

    Some layout and a finish sanding blocks, should help the finishing of clip boards and other stuff.
  17. What tools did you buy today?

    Had to go and buy some new water hose quick connects and ended up in the sale section again. Bought another set of Milwaukee knives, the larger Coast light(which I hate, it's going back). Empire contour gauge which is a LOT nicer than the General they have at Lowe's that I almost bought. Swanson mini square because I've been drafting up wood projects and have been tired of going to the garage to get my steel ruler...some neat stuff on paper thus far!
  18. What tools did you buy today?

    Bought a bunch of wood and received some brass rods today. Only tool I picked up was a Gedore wood PH2 I bought for half off, glad I bought this as a one off, grip is pretty small.
  19. Power Tool Quirks and Oddities

    That and it can be soo stiff that you have to slap it to lock. The m12/m18 radio is really difficult to get the m12 battery out.
  20. EBay Deals Permathread

    A-holes added an eBay coupon onto that shelf so I ended up buying another one. " PSHOPEARLY" takes it down to $48 Coupon code direct link for eBay, not much good stuff tool wise for me but others may be interested: https://www.ebay.com/rpp/4892?_trkparms=%26clkid%3D8894334902803693484&rmvSB=true&rmvSB=true
  21. Power Tool Quirks and Oddities

    I hate the M12 battery release tabs.
  22. Pliers?

    I don't but they look like they're made by Apex (Husky/GW/New Craftsman). They have other pliers that look like they're made by Kal/Pro America, those look really good. I'd order some on Amazon and return what you don't like. Semantics allows for "Item not as described" for a free return. Not an awesome practice but it won't break Amazon.
  23. Pliers?

    That sucks. The sockets and wrenches are insanely nice for the price...that being said, I haven't ordered. I like having SAE and Metric but he rarely has the SAE stuff.
