    TOTD turned out to be the GLL2 crossline laser. Had to hang some pictures for my wife, and really like not having to mark any lines on the walls.

    The TOTD for me was this Bluetooth toque. It is great to use. I like better then my ear buds.

    Didn’t know they had such things. Sound anywhere near as good as earbuds, or just a lot more comfortable?

    I didn’t know they made then either. I would say it sounds pretty good. My ear buds are just cheap ones I got off Amazon. But they are still pretty good. I am happy with both.

    TOTD was a Stanley #3 used to trim down a sticking door. I do have a Makita power plane – but it was more enjoyable to just do a quick touch-up on the blade and take care of it by hand.

    Thanks for the response! I’ll skip tunes while working if I have to use buds, but I’m gonna give one of these a try.

    TOTD was my new phone. I know a lot of you have radios for your jobsites, but I’m moving around a lot and often couldn’t listen to a radio even if I had one because I’ve got hearing protection on when I am just in one spot, but today I was staining a bunch of wood so I didn’t need any ear protection and I could listen to some podcasts. Didn’t even need earbuds, because the sound on this iPhone 8 is so much better than my old phone!

    Really made he time go by so much faster

    New Phone huh? nice nice.
    I am debating to replace my 5 year old phone as well LOL but I am too cheap haha.
    I rather spend that money on a new tool or so.
    Phone still works etc, just the battery does not last long anymore and it’s lagging sometimes.

    It’s really nice for Instagram/ Facebook. You seem to be doing just fine however you’ve been taking pictures up to this point, but the camera and video capabilities are getting really great on the newer iphones, so if you’re interested in that aspect of them, it may make sense to make that change. Otherwise, yeah, stick with what’s working for you.

    yeah I was actually thinking about it too, mainly for the IG scene.
    Maybe one day when I can find a good deal on a phone. the brand new phones are insanely pricy.

    An oldie but goodie. You have been using and fixing that framing gun since you have been on the list. Glad it keeps working.

    Wish they still made that gun. Not many of the new ones work like that old gun.

    That is the way it is with a lot of tools. The older model is better than the new ones.

    I totally agree. The older ones were always better. They try to say the newer ones are better. But they never last as long.

    It may be a bit of a cliche, but they truly don’t make anything like they used to.

    Sad but true. I blame Walmart myself.

    My TOTD was my shovel and my ATV with a snowplow. To clear way all that wet snow.

    TOTD was my Bosch dds183. Ran it throughout the day on one 2.0ah battery and drilled and fastened a few hundred holes and fasteners. Fastening some metal flanges to plywood substrate and the super fast speed with the electronic clutch is such a pleasure to use. Has a mechanical clutch but the electronic clutch stops the power after about one or two slips on the mechanical.

    I used the snowblower. Makes life a lot easier when you can point it where you want it, over the banks that build up. Still a lot of shovel work for corners and steps and such.
