    My TOTD is my metal detectable marker. I have write out alot product tags for the bulk tote. We just started using metal detectable pens & markers.

    So is it the ink that has metal in it? Don’t quite get what that is and what it’s used for.

    I know cheques have metal imbued ink at the bottom where our banking info is written. It gets processed by the processing machines that way.

    I am not sure if the ink has metal in it. I think the inside the markers and pen is made of metal or has metal pieces.

    At my work we have rare earth magnets, metal detection and x rays in place to catch metal if it has got in the product. This way if pen or marker fell the product it would be found sooner then later.

    One of our sister companies had a non metal detectable pen get into there product. By the time it was found several thousands of dollars of product when threw their system. All this product had to be threw out.

    My TOTD was my tripod! I used it as a second set of hands to set up the bottom run of window trim today. The best part was that it was $5 at Goodwill 😂

    Haha that’s a great idea in a pinch Charlie
    That’s thinking outside the box. Great trick
    And yeah that’s a steal at the price.

    Never used a tripod for something like that. Creative thinking there Charlie. 👍

    Thanks guys 🙂 I often find I’ve left the “right” tool somewhere I can’t get it, so… you know, necessity is the mother of invention, right?

    Hands down, TOTD was my Makita motorized carrier lugging from my driveway close to 70 bags of concrete to a location in the back of my yard.

    It sure is. I already feel like it is paying for itself in less grueling effort otherwise and speeding up work.

    I just noticed that Princess Auto has knock-off style motorized carriers they are selling now. They didn’t have these til now, and none of them are such that you can swap out from a bucket to a carrier. I’m liking my Makita even more now considering I paid even less that the $899 wheelbarrow only model they are selling. I really lucked out on snagging that deal thru Makita directly.

    Haven’t pulled this 20 year old boat anchor out in years, but I needed to cut a bunch of short pieces of one inch conduit and achieve a nice straight edge. I think it’s one of only two Ryobi tools I own, the other being a 30 year old hot melt glue gun.

    Looks like it’s in good condition

    I had know idea they made a corded glue gun I assume that’s what you mean.

    Actually, I stand corrected. Had in my head it was a Ryobi, but it’s not. Same colours as the old Ryobi, but some unknown brand.

    I am assuming it still cuts good for 20 year old boat anchor?

    TOTD was my “Freak” putting in the work!

    Lots of GRK and decking screws in this little 4’x4’ launching platform.

    It does. I just rarely drag it out unless I have to. It weighs a ton and is awkward to transport. I see a bunch of uses coming up for it though, so for now it it’ll stay nearby.
