    This light weight little Ridgid compressor was just the perfect tool today versus any of my other compressors. Neeeded it for my crown staples gun to assemble on the fly caging for my rapidly growing tomatos.

    Practical for that use for sure
    What size staple did you use

    6mm 7/32″ wide staples of various lengths as needed.

    I love getting to use my small Senci compressor for things like that – it’s so much quieter and lighter than the one I have for framing!

    But mine is cordless. Just makes it that much easier to deploy for small job nailer tasks like that outside.

    Ooh, I didn’t realize that! That’s a huge bonus!

    I don’t know if they still make it any longer. It was regular near $300 and I bought it for $120 on clearance a year or two ago. Haven’t seen it reappear at HD since. It’s gotten used plenty since I got it.

    That is a nice size compressor for little jobs. It must be nice that it is cordless?
    Looks like your tomato plants love the hot weather. Do you remove the suckers from your plants? Or just leave them.

    I do. I also trimmed away low lying stuff yesterday also that wasn’t really getting any sun any longer anyways and was yellowing.

    We have a ton of rasberry coming in soon this year where I will be building my deck later this year. Gonna try to save a few to start them off at another location in the yard I will need to set up.

    Yes that is a good idea. I have read it doesn’t hurt to trim up your plants. I use to do the same when I had tomato plants. This is the first year in 7 or 8 years not having tomatoes.

    That will be good if you can save then. Is there a certain time of year that is good to transplant raspberries?

    I’ve never transplanted rasberries before, but I suspect doing it long before the snow flies is best. They were here when we bought this house in 2000.

    I haven’t either. Just wondering if there is certain time a year it should be done. It would be shame if died after they were transplanted.

    I’ve thought about planting raspberry or strawberry plants , I remember one of my friends had strawberries , he said they take over everything else in the garden.
    I assume that they are lower on the ground like strawberries also.

    Not really. Some are low to the ground, but the plants are waist high or more. All this needs to get chopped down when I go to build my deck.

    My TOTD was my Milwaukee fan I used while I was working in the garage.

    I guess you are lucky you bought that fan.

    My TOTD was and kind of has been for a while – my ps4/32 combo – I reach for these two tools more than almost any other! I think the only tool I use as much or at least close is my Milwaukee fatback utility knife.

    I only have a picture from earlier this week, but I used them a bunch again today too, putting up another fan and a new screen door. They’re just the perfect size and weight for little projects like that.

    Don’t ya just love the 12V tools. I try to use mine over their 18V counterparts all the time.

    I’m big on the 18 volt tools , but lately I’m thinking about buying the 12 volt router and plane , that being said I’d also like to add that 12 jiggy

    I have all of those, but it’s the 12V drills that I really covet. The smaller size and lighter weight make a big difference all around.
