my latest tool is a Warrier 3x21" belt sander from Harbor Freight along with an assortment of different grit belts.


bought it to sand the rough boards on my deck before I paint them.

works pretty well so far on the 80 grit belt.

I bought this kit on sale for $299 for my wife and her dream of flipping houses. Also it will be the tools my kids borrow.

I've used all of them except the sander... I still like my Milwaukee stuff better but they do the job really well and was a good deal. It sure made the wife happy. Now I have to buy her the new Ryobi rollie cart.

My credo
If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
It wasn't big or expensive but I bought a 14mm x 1.50 tap so I could use a late fox body drain plug in a 62 T Bird oil pan with stripped out 1/2x20 threads.
Replacement 62 Bird pans are made of unobtainium.

Bought a brake bleeder wrench. Why didn't I think of this sooner? Dad always had one. I did buy a new Leslie version off Amazon for about 10 bucks. I looked for a used Snap-On on ebay but all looked pretty bad. This one works fine.

I got this slick power tool battery charging station shelf for my birthday. Tomorrow I'll get it on the wall loaded up and functioning.

What are supposed to stand by? Water cooler? Smoke Pit? We need details!
Lol, whatever makes you feel comfortable waiting… I’m impatiently waiting for the notification that I can pick them up…

We are moving into our new to us house after everything being in storage since July. I haven't bought any new tools recently but I've been reacquainting with my old ones and it's kind of like getting new ones. Finding things randomly in boxes as we go; it's like Christmas!
