Default What tools will you be buying?

I have a few tools on my list. First are the cordless tools, with these I can be 95% cordless. The only hold-out would be the big Hilti.

The Milwaukee M18 fan will be replacing my corded fan.

The Milwaukee M18 Oscillating tool will be replacing my corded Rockwell Sonicrafter. I just hope this thing isn't too heavy with that big battery on it.

And the new M18 compact hand vacuum. I was sold on it after seeing the video someone else posted. This will also work well in conjunction with the oscillating tool, dust free cutting without needing the power on.

Being able to using the oscillating tool and vacuum without power is important for me because I often have to change old subpanels (FPE and others) which require me to cut a larger hole in the plaster wall and finding power could be a problem once I shut down the subpanel.



In addition to those products, I will be buying a 5' ladder to replace my 4' and 6'. I will be getting a Werner that can hold the bucket to hold material and tools. A fantrician's dream

Admittedly, that ladder is for more hardcord work. When I want to be able to travel light and have something to stand on to work on a light on a typical 8 foot ceiling, I am thinking about using this:

The Little Giant Airwing. It's got a real ANSI IAA 375lb rating. It's small and lightweight but the platform is comfortable to stand on.

The main reason I want it is because I am sick of having to make multiple trips to bring a ladder in for quick work on the second or third floor and trying to fit a full size ladder around tight staircases. I can put that Airwing over my shoulder while carrying my service tray and make one trip.

Have your LGS order it for you, pay cash and add an 80% lower. Then bury that sucker.

That just struck me as really funny!




Do rough inner city Canadian youths play hockey with chain mesh goals ?
