    My TOTD was the scrub brush, lol. I finally took the time and just went for it and cleaned all the circular saw blades I own. I don’t have any special cleaner, and it’s probably too little too late for a bunch of them, but now they’re all sitting in the drying rack and I’m hoping that they’ll run a whole lot better now!

    Thanks for the excellent reminder, Charlie. I need to do the same. I was mounting my dado stack just before Christmas and noticed how gummed up it had become.

    What did you use to clean them? I have been using methyl hydrate to soak the blades in but always looking for newer, better ways.

    Yes this is a good reminder. I have couple blades that need to be done. I have used Simple Green in the past. I read about it online and tried.

    TOTD was my M18 Fuel 1″ SDS-Plus, running conduit in what was the concrete block maintenance building to a long-defunct area ski resort. It’s now the immense garage to my customer’s home, which itself used to be the upper lodge. Pic is from back when I got it.

    Nothing new or better about this – just dish soap and warm water with a scrub brush. Probably could have done better with a stiffer brush too. But I used what I had 🙂

    TOTD was my M18 Fuel High Torque impact, with 1100 ft/lbs nut-busting torque. Made quick work of changing out the flat tire on the wife’s Subaru at 5am this morning, at -11F. My crazy 9000-lumen Radius Site Light also came in extremely handy.

    That’s definitely good for a fast change of wheels.
    Thank goodness for those powerful cordless tools.

    TOTD had to be my router jig. I was able to cut new grooves for my cross cut sled pretty easily thanks to it!

    I’ve got a few I should do as well. One of those jobs that keeps getting put on the back burner it seems.

    Oh man what a great idea. That would be nice. Wonder if anybody is working on one?

    Thanks, Charlie. I think today will be the day. I need to change out the dado stack anyway so may as well do the cleaning while I’m at it.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Same here. I always put it off to another time or think of it at night when I am not in the shop.

    TOTD was a 4 wheel Dollie for me. I seem to be using it on and off every day recently.

    TOTD for me today was my new cordless jigsaw. I was installing more paneling for a friend under their staircase and it was so nice to notch out the panels with this tool and not have to bother about a cord. Plus, it’s super smooth, definitely powerful, and I love the blower!

    My Bosch heated jacket. Had to do some work out in the shop and with a high only in the low 40s the heated jacket made the time spent more pleasant.

    If it ever hits 40 here again, I’ll be out in swim trunks.
