    That's nice! I'm going to have to get those. Sure would beat chasing down bolts that the wire wheel grabbed and threw (some I haven't found yet).

    EDIT: OUCH! $25 for each!?

    I've been needing a chop saw for a while, you have me pretty well talked into this one.

    After using metal cutting blades in a circular saw, it has me really wanting to get away from an abrasive chop saw.

    I know it's a bit pricey, but I have been wanting a good dependable chop saw that doesn't take up much room...You'll like it if you get one...:waytogo::waytogo:

    I think they are cheaper other places if you hunt around...I don't see my daughter (She has my wife's frugalness in her DNA) LOL spending 25 each on those.

    Found this chain in my barn yesterday. Absolutely no idea where it came from. Anyway, looks to be a nice old heavy chain.

    I bought one of these today. I have needed a dial indicator a few times in my life of building cars, and trucks, and have never owed one. Price was right, and I do have a buddy that owes this very one, and has been happy with it. Wish it would have come with a storage box, but for the price and I have some small metal boxes I can store it in. I will let everyone know how good it is when I get it.

    That's good information thanks. If I decide to dip into the battery world of tools I'll try that one. I'm still on the fence to get away from air tools. It would be nice to not have to get the compressor out at my farm or deal the compressor around the yard or have to pull whatever to the carport to be within 50ft of the compressor.

    Went to the new HF right behind my home. This might not be good for my wallet. Lol

    Got this hand vacuum brake bleeding tool.

    Saw this one you can hook to an air compressor. Has anyone ever used this? I don't think it will work on my Mc because I have the flat black top on mine and it won't screw into it.
