    My tool of the day was my Hitachi framing gun and 16ga. trim gun knocking these horses together this evening.

    What horses 🙃 oh yeah under that 🍻
    Looks like nice little horses.

    My TOTD were my new Bessey 3’ clamps – I don’t know how I would have gotten these full sheets of drywall up at this angle and in this space without them!

    Very clever Charlie. That’s a dog of a task workin it solo.

    It wasn’t my favorite, but taping today went a lot better. It’s nice getting to do work that isn’t loud – I could listen to stuff without ear buds, just playing through my phone speaker.

    Get yourself a little BT speaker for that Charlie. I use a little Makita BT unit at times for that. The BT range isn’t the greatest though.

    It’s not often that I’m working without hearing protection, but I was today so I brought one of our BT speakers from home. It’s just a Costco speaker, but it was perfect for the small space I was in finishing up the taping.

    There ya go. Myself, I rarely will play tunes straight off my phone’s speaker. The sound quality sucks.

    I have alittle BT speaker I use sometimes when I working in the house. Other times I while I am working outside or in the workshop I use a BT adapter in PB 120.

    I’d like to say my 18V Bosch right angle drill was my TOTD getting into a tight spot to drill a hole for a buried conduit redirection into a pier I’m placing for a new lamp post from where it ran to an old one adjacent, but my TOTD has to go to my 20 year old Craftsman Shopvac that I used to clear out crumbled dirt in the pier hole I dug last fall rather than using my clam shell digger with my crappy shoulder instead.

    My TOTD for the week really has been this adapter/ charger! It’ll charge my phone and a BT speaker so I can use them all day long for listening to podcasts/ audio books and it can charge both at the same time. I love that. But it also works to power my heated coat too, and since I don’t have the 12V adapter, I’m getting ready to start using it that way again soon too 🙂

    I really like my 18V power adapter too. I used it alot when camping. It is nice that you can charge 2 devices at once.

    The only thing I don’t like about it is that you have to turn it on. I would much rather the ports were just always on whenever the adapter was attached to a battery, but it’s a small issue.

    Sorry, can’t help you with that as I don’t own a power buffer but could have used one at times.

    What model do you have or would recommend for a power buffer Dirty?

    Don’t you buff after the car is really clean though? Wouldn’t the buffer not get dirty then?

    Dirty was the pad foam or wool? If the pad was wool you can use a dull screwdriver to clean it when it is spinning just hold the screwdriver on the pad and the old polish will come out. Then you can wash it by hand using a dish soap rinse well

    Foam just wash it with dish soap and rinse and squeeze dry. Place the pads in the sun to dry. Yes you should always wash your pads.

    TOTD for me was my 12V planer. It attaches perfectly to the cordless canister vac and as I was working in a small, unevenly built nook today, trying to get the area square and framed up, it was perfect for making some of the uneven surfaces match up.
