I thought They were for moving equipment not for spools. That's a good score

Picked up an M12 3/8 hammer drill, so I don't have to lug out my big ol' 18v Makita hammer for every little task. After 6 years it's getting a bit tired, so hopefully this gets me some more life out of it. It's almost half the weight, lol.

$113 CAD at Home Depot for the kit with 2 batteries

Best of luck with it, you should find it is a great drill.

Default Flir VP50

They had a counter display of Flirs NCVD at my shop house. I've spent $25 bucks on worst things so I decided to give it a try. Someone definitely put some thought into it. To turn it on you have to hold the button down for 2 seconds so it won't turn on in your pocket of bag as easily. It has a nice durable feel to it, a small LED on the one end, and a actual flashlight on the other with a separate on/off button. It also has 2 settings 24V-90 and 90V-1000. Pretty good so far. Until I went to actually use it...it is so dern sensitive it picks up voltage 6 inches from a receptacle on the less sensitive setting. No way I could differentiate a circuit in a full box. I want to like it, hopefully after messing with it a bit more it will work out. Hard to beat a Fluke though.

I have a feeling I'll be in the same boat...was it the sensitivity that you didn't like?

Santronics!!! Simple and reliable. No switch to mess with. Sensitivity seems about where it should be. These last forever. I have one that is 20 + years old. It still works fine.

Don't waste money on this crappy knife. Just blew $20 on it, once out of the package it's hard to open and the seatbelt blade is an accident waiting to happen. So much for trusting in a brand.

Different strokes................

I always carry in a redundant style. A stabbing slicer blade [primary], a utility cutter [secondary], and a surprise or two-three-four. I grew up in a bad neighborhood.

I used to like tanto blades because I thought they looked cool. But they can be a pain to sharpen.

My blade of choice today is a Spiderco Police. It has a long blade that is nice and flat. I find it easy to use and sharpen.
