    My TOTD over the past couple days camping has been my 18V battery adapter. It’s perfect to take camping for our phones (no service, but for taking pictures and videos of all the fun things the kids were doing and listening to downloaded material for bedtime it still put some drain on them!)

    That sounds like a great tool to have. I would might getting it also. I also use my phone for pictures and listening to podcast and of course the time. I don’t wear a watch much anymore as I can’t wear them at work.

    It’s been really nice to have. I originally bought a knock off and it works ok, but the Bosch version not only has two USB ports, it also has a button to turn on power to them so you can leave it attached to a battery without draining any of the juice, and it also has the little round port that connects with the heated jacket too. So that’s what I use for my jacket with a slim pack. It’s a bit bulkier than the 12V adapter (which I’ll probably get in the future sometime) but for now, it’s been really nice to have for that too.

    Great points Charlie, and the other feature I like is, after the phone or device has charged completely, it turns off, so you don’t continue to charge and drain the battery.
    Very satisfied with this adapter. I was also thinking of getting another one.

    I have one as well but I didn’t know about the auto turn off feature. That makes it worth the price of admission right there.

    I didn’t realize how useful they may in fact be. I hadn’t really investigated it, but now I might get one. Thanks for posting Charlie.

    @doobie that’s exactly what I wanted from this thread – being able to highlight certain aspects of a tool that others might not otherwise know/ think about. It’s always great to ha e something that’s working well for you and be able to share that so that other people can benefit too.

    My TOTD was my Kreg Jr jig. I need a few pocket hole around for frame work around the bottom of the Lego table. I don’t use very much but is handy to have around.

    Nice, how long have you had that Ryobi trimmer, I have had mine for going on 8 years now, still the original lithium battery packs, great little trimmer.

    I think I bought it when we moved into our house Brian, so four years. And no troubles really, same battery pack and just gone through one little spook of line too!

    Today’s TOTD were these little clamps I got from Bessey not too long ago – they made positioning my square a snap, so that setting up my track was a breeze too!

    I guess after getting a fail using the new Skil table saw and having it clog using a couple of good circular saws was a welcome change.

    Pictures please DirtyWhiteBoy,
    I assume they are the Makita?
    Gawd they make some great battery tools, aside from the corded models.

    TOTD for me was my cordless saw. But boy did I notice the difference today going back to the factory saw (even though this is my work saw, so the blade is newer) verses the new 40T Freud blade I’ve been using at home. I’ll probably bring that in for tomorrow for all the finish cuts.

    I’m loving my cordless saw again today. Cutting all these angles would have been impossible without it and my track.

    What, both of them have rafter hooks

    I am sure a track this so much better. I have never used a track for my circular saw.

    Loved having my colt with me today – and the extra large base really made balancing on these edges a breeze.

    The lowly feather board is my TOTD today. I haven’t used it much before, but now that I’ve started to, I really like it, and I’m excited to get to upgrade it hopefully soon. But for now, this little orange plastic guy really helped me out his morning.

    Yes they both need rafter hooks to hang them on the side of the saw horse when not in use. The 6½” has a light on it and it is very helpful in the darker areas.

    I was surprised, in a good way, by how much my GRR-Ripper and GRR-Rip block helped me routing 1/4” roundovers on all the frame pieces I cut today. Definitely deserving of TOTD status.
