Good stuff guys! I adjusted my side yard gate, I think I need a new drill now though.

Ha, looks like a cheap 1/4" Black and Decker I had about 30 years ago. Same end result...

Go get a Milwaukee cordless like this...I know it will hurt you to spend the money, but you WON'T regret it after you use the drill a few times. I have it and their 3/8" impact and they are great !! Pics are just for example, they can be had for less than at HD

I set up at a local swap meet Sat afternoon, and sold today. It was 8-3, but I was totally sold out by noon!! I guess not having sold much my prices were tantalizing, so about half got purchased during setup, and the rest this morning! Now I need to decide how to spend all that on the '39!

Cordless = dead batteries when you need them , , batteries don't last long , replacement batteries are so expensive , may as well buy a new tool . corded , always ready , old yard sale drills are dirt cheap , last forever if not abused / misused.

Changed out the sluggish idler pulley on the GTP. Those five wheeltires are still in it, guy not there Friday. Disposed of 5 gal used oil, gassed up the rowdy one and caught a nice lingering fishtail. Yep. Warmish out.

Up until a few years ago, yep,..... modern batteries ?? Last WAAAAAAAY longer and take hundreds of recharges before wearing out.

Corded tools in a shop, where you work in a limited space and have ready access to outlets, sure. We recently moved and I have been roaming from one end of this house to the other hanging pictures, repairing things, fixing the PO's messy woodwork. I'll grab my cordless every time...

I hate I had to do my project today but I was blessed to find a 5 month old unit less tan 200 miles from me.

The seller said he would not ship but ended up delivering it to my door. Sometimes you just meet the nicest people when you least expect it. I see God's hand in this deal from start to finish.

replaced the alternator on my Duramax pickup today because it was squealling. And then found out that it was actually the idler pulley located UNDER the alternator that was squealing. So now I have a spare alternator, and also did the pulley replacement.

AND got a new exhaust system put in wife's car. Busy day!

So today, I put the old alternator back in and returrned the new one to the store. Got my $300.00 buck back. The pulley/tensioner was "not quite" seized, and everything is nicely quiet now.

Good deal that they took it back, most stores won’t take returns on electrical items...

This past week and a half has been a mixture of good and terrible. The good has been footers dug, forms set, inspections passed, and concrete poured. My garage is scheduled to be erected on Monday. The terrible involves CPR, ambulances, an ICU, and the loss of my dad. He was 76.

Aw, Dave.

So sorry to hear about your Dad. When it rains, it pours and your plate is full right now. Peace, comfort, and strength to you and the family.
