    The old Rockwell planer was my TOTD. Rough plane cherry in just 3 passes. One side just under the nominal mill size to establish a flat face then 2 more passes to clean up the mill marks and see the grain. Final sizing will be just 2 more passes at up to 1/8″ per pass.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    My Bosch 18V blower was a star attraction again at the beach blowin up our floaties. People would come over and ask what it was. I even let one lady dry her hair with it. Hadn’t thought of that use for it.

    I did use my blower a few times with my son holding the blower directed at me outside, to blow all the saw dust off my body after cutting wood all day.

    Today when finish sanding the picture frames I had to stop using the random orbital sander as it inflames the joint on my thumb so hand sanding – but the Norton 3x 120 grit has truly surprised me as to how well it is performing, stock removal, durability, and ease of use it is may TOTD.

    see if you can get your hands on one of those stihl antivibration gloves, they work pretty decently maybe that’ll help you with your thumbs.

    These radio’s are my TOTD. We give each girl a radio when leave the campsite. Just so we keep in touch with them.

    That’s a great idea. I can see us going that route in the near future – it would make giving the girls more independence a little easier on us parents.

    Do those ones have a pretty good range?

    TOTD for me today was this old DeWalt angle grinder I was using with a flap disc for coping. I used a jigsaw to get close and then carefully removed the rest with the grinder and it seemed to work really well. I guess we’ll see when I comes time to actually put it all in.

    My tool of the day was my coping saw. I used to hate coping base by hand because I wasn’t good at it. But after installing 6 inch crown in 80% of a 3000 ft home I figured it out and now I enjoy it.

    Great idea! I like it. Coping has always been a challenge for me; I will give that method a try, thank you.

    I bought a pair of anti-vibration gloves recently. They seem to help, but they are pricey. They go for $40-50 CAD up here and honestly don’t look much different than a 3-pack of Husky gloves I just bought for my son to use helping me out at $25. The palm padding doesn’t seem much different between the two, yet when I used my anti-vibration ones on a second day of doing the same vibrating task of running the stand up bobcat from using regular non padded gloves the first day, I didn’t get the hand numbness and mini shakes I was getting the day before not using the anti-vibration gloves nor did I get those symptoms subsequently on other days with even more prolonged times each day on that bobcat.

    I guess they work. Can’t compare them to the Huskys I got for my son as they don’t fit me. The Huskys don’t say they are anti-vibration, but like I said, the palm padding seems no different.

    Wow, that’s a lot of coping,
    Definitely takes slightly longer, but the results are way nicer corners.

    Not many have ever claimed they enjoyed a coping saw. I use one and like the way it looks when done properly. But cant say I like using the tool. lol

    We started using radios last year at my parent’s trailer. It worked great and it does give the kids more independence. One of our radios from last year quit working so I bought these ones.

    I am making my tool of the day my air conditioner, and I think I am developing deep feelings for it.

    It seems to work alright for me – I don’t have much experience at it, and I’m sure there are much better and more technically proficient ways to go about it, but for what I’m doing and the tools I have, it’s working out pretty well.

    @clev08 I would love the chance to practice that much. It’s really rewarding to me to get to spend the time getting really proficient at a task I used to struggle with.

    mine have special padding in certain parts of the gloves, and they seem to work really well when i am handling stuff with tons of vibration. i mean they could always have more padding

    The folding wagon we have is my TOTD. I had all our stuff for the beach and I had the dingy strapped on top. They are handy wagon to have. They are pretty popular here at the campground.

    The TOTD was the Ridgid JobMax 3/8ths 12volt ratchet,, where’s there’s a only room for a 1/4 turn it’s a huge time saver.
