    I’ve been laying low on the new tools. I seem to have everything I need now.

    I’ll bet a few pictures of shiny new tools would change your mind!

    I’ll be grabbing a cheap pex cinch tool from Menards tomorrow. The easy returns and lifetime warranty convinced me to try their brand before investing in a high dollar tool.

    I never thought I would say the same thing @DirtyWhiteBoy but I think I have reached the same point. I am awaiting a new router bit set for plywood joinery for making drawers and an extra miter gauge for the table saw. That’s it for a good while I suspect. But then who knows what new item hits the shelves.

    (By the way Dirty, made a pen with Koa yesterday and it turned out fantastic – great wood.)

    Picked up a new Hitachi twin tank compressor today. I have had a couple of older ones die in the last couple months.

    I was looking at them the other day in a high end store in the AlaMoana mall that sold Hawaii crafted things and they went from 65$ to 165$ for the hand crafted pens.

    Have you ever looked at Rolair? Love my JC10. Quiet, compact, doesn’t weigh a ton, and they have excellent customer service. They use compressors motors for hospital use. Super quiet!

    I’ve been thinking of a rolair if I sell my makita.

    Do you know about removing the head and cleaning out all the carbon around the reed valves?

    Now you need to get things you THINK you’ll need. Hate to say it, I’m not far behind you Dirty. I’m getting things that most don’t request, and soon it’s gonna be a guessing game as to what I’ll get. Gonna need to expand that prize list for guys like us.

    I really want to upgrade my 18v drill and 12v kit to brushless, even though the current ones work just fine, urg.

    Then why do it? I’ve got the same scenario. Even though I could cash in and get an easy upgrade via points redemption, why unnecessarily replace something that still works.

    Always wanting the latest in whatever is generally not a good recipe to get the most varied tool assortment at the end of the day and save some money. Been there done that myself at times. FWIW!

    I have been buying a lot of old Snap-on obsolete specialty carburetor sockets off eBay for my new carburetor toolbox. Some of them are tough to find.

    Yes, these just had a lot of miles on them, one was over 20 years old, best compressor I have ever owned.

    I also got the Tiger clip gun, clips and scrails from UPS yesterday. I have a couple of big decks and thought it would speed things up.

    I had gotten quite the deal on the mac700 a few years ago and I am running that. it is just a little underpowered and overweight for what I want.

    If I was using a pancake/portable compressor all day I’d want one that was quiet. Who makes really quiet ones?

    Rolair. I have the JC10 and it is real quiet. They use compressors that are also used in hospitals per speaking with them on the phone. No loud start up bangs either.

    Because I like gadgets and high tech stuff. 😀

    Yeah I’ll probably stick with my current brushed ones.
