    I was just wondering if anyone in the Greater Toronto Area is planning to attend the Atlas Machinery Show that they are hosting today? They extended the invite on their instagram page. I will be dropping by to check it out and see what interesting things they are presenting. @smallerstick @yellad @utopia78

    I think I will pass, thanks for the heads up, though. I’m still deciding if I am going to Pickering for the show on April 2.

    It was interesting, loads and loads of instagrammers were there. You had a chance to win the chance to buy one of these Martinez tools hammers for 350 canadian. I guess they are that expensive as they are the only ones to exist in canada right now.

    Do you buy much from Atlas? How find there prices? I have heard of them. But I have never been there. Maybe someday go get them out. I might get get to the city once a year and we drive by a couple times a year.

    I’m going to have to go to the next one! Too many photos on IG of all the guys that showed up. Would have been really nice to shake their hands and say hello in person.

    That’s it, next one you go to Aaron, I’m 100% in!

    It was a great meet and greet. @joecanning spearheaded the entire meet.

    Walked away with a Festool grab bag with some little goodies.

    Shirt, pack of 5 sheets of FT sandpaper, FT notepad and a small screwdriver bit set.

    Also won a multi bit Stanley screwdriver from Dewalt Canada.

    That thing looks sweet! Is the entire head replaceable on it instead of just a replaceable head?

    Jealous of that hammer, I want to get one eventually. Hopefully they will be producing more and they will be more readily available. Looks like it was a good turnout from all the instagram pics.

    What was the occasion for this event? I hadn’t heard of anything as I’m not on IG.

    Do you buy much from Atlas? How find there prices?

    I’ve bought a fair bit from them over the years, but have rarely had to go to their store. Everything online or over the phone.

    Their prices are OK. They do carry unique quality brands on some stuff without gouging you generally. Some good sales or offers at times.

    Kevin.

    I’m due to replace my TBI2, and I was planning on getting another but after seeing that I might hold off for it instead!

    I didn’t get very many photos of the place, they didn’t have anything really different up from what they regularly have on the floor.
    @doobie the person to ask is @joecaning he was the one who set up the whole instagram meet and greet. Atlas just happens to be the one hosting it. It was a great turn out, i’d probably see when the next one is.

    @woodsconstruction I don’t know if it is the disc portion or the whole head. I didn’t look in depth in to it as I couldn’t justify a 350 dollar hammer.

    @woodsconstruction,
    Yes the complete head on the Martinez Hammers are replaceable.
    They have two models out, the one pictured and a wood handle model. The titanium hammer retails for $360CAD

    The creator of the Martinez Hammer was the original creator of the Stileto Hammer.

    Are there any pics of the big event?? Were there a lot of tool reps there with many booths set up??

    @dirtywhiteboy
    No tents setup for this even as it was a day with snow/rain off and on.
    Tool rep included Dewalt, Milwaukee, Festool, Grex and a few other smaller co’s.
    Here are a few “stolen off Instagram.

    This is one of my shots, the registration line up out the door.

    @woodsconstruction,
    Here are a few pictures from Martinez Tool IG account
    My understanding is that he is working on various weighted heads that will be interchangeable with the handle you have.

    Looked like a nice event,
    I have been seeing lots of pictures on Instagram also,
    But I haven’t seen many Bosch tools or pictures here ? Did Bosch have any set up? They must have a section in the store for Bosch tools and accessories

    Nice swag Frank congrats
