Swing through Lowes and score some new tool bags (I need about three) tool boxes (at least two) blades bits and grit and maybe some wood to make a little repair to the shed that I ran over with the Rover last winter (oops).<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Missionsd accomplished. $666 at Lowes <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
A pair of New Balance 338 and a Pair of 608 (both made in the USA!) The classic Dickies plain front work pants(6pair) and any 100% cotton T shirt on sale (10).<br />
<br />
Ready to head out and make some big bucks working on a SuperYacht in Savannah (gotta pay for that mod somehow...LOL)<br />
<br />
Got some pretty nice stuff at Lowes--Hitachi Cordless Drill/Saw combo--3 nice tool bags and a rolling tool caddy--a new plane some drill bits and a set of metric and a set of standard Gear Wrenches. Been needing those wrenches for a while and just broke down and got them./<br />
<br />
The Hitachi Drill looks like one of those LANboy cases LOL--all Japanese stylie and gnarly looking... Will post some picks of the highlights of Cyber's Re-Uppage in a bit--first I want to manorgamize my gear into the new totes.<br />
<br />
Yep if I don't have to do this but once a year it's too often.

You just reminded me to go over to the swap meat to get some new shirts; mine already have holes in them. Then I can swing by Payless and get some new shoes. There goes my Dual Core fund<img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> .

Work! Bah. Eat! Bah, people dont NEED to do those things, it is all just a myth. It is a proven fact however, people need to PC UPGRADE! Just think of all the mods you could have gotten with all that money......... 'Tis a sad day my friend, a sad day indeed....

Well my motto is tool today for tomorrow we may modl...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool"><br><br>
So I will try and focus on the toolage. Tools=Good. Many Many Tools=Godlike Omnipotnece in the face of ALL modding challenges!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/2138/pict5840wx1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/9676/pict5841wy0.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/8947/pict5842zs5.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
18Volt 1/2" Chuck, Cordless circular saw and reciprocating saw. Ooooompf<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gunner2"><br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/8356/pict5845qf2.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
I carry all that stuff in that one bag...time to get a little better manorgamized.<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img275.imageshack.us/img275/9995/pict5847kn9.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
Quick-Change bits...been wanting these for a while...<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img275.imageshack.us/img275/5893/pict5850nz0.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
Wanted another Record to replace my over worn one--but this Stanley will do.<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/3333/pict5852vm4.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
Flexhead Gear Wrenches one set Metric one set Standard. These are super handy and eliminate using a ratchet much of the time. Plus they look cool.<br><br>
On yachts carpenters use tool bags not boxes to keep from damaging the decks and because, well that's the custom. So I replaced my ten and fifteen year old bags with some new ones and sorted my gear into them....<br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img274.imageshack.us/img274/610/pict5853bo8.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
Basic Carpenters Tools in the Red Bag, the Hitachi Kit in the Green, my Router/Fein Saw/Jigsaw in one blue/black bag and all the other miscellaneous wierd hand tools in the other.<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/466/pict5856ff2.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
The bag has all my drills, holesaws and mechanics tools--it weighs at least 80 pounds.<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/5099/pict5857hw4.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
This one is much lighter and has my power tools for doing basic work--router, jigsaw, Fein saw and a mess of router bits and bases.<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/6012/pict5858tl5.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
This one has a lot of wierd stuff--pneumatic caulk gun, giant speed square, pads for the sanders and grinders, all manner of peculiar handtools. Whatever I don't bring I need.<br><br>
Those bags are going to be my only friends when I am in a jam--if I treat them right they'll reciprocate.<br><br>
I am ready to take on the world now--loaded all that crap into my rolling toolboxes and into the Rover. Nationwide!

Oh, man... where do I start. I guess by wipin this pool of drool of the table.<br><br>
I've been switching over to Rigid stuff little by little. Bought the portable 10" table saw 6 yrs ago and have been very impressed. A table saw to me is a motor and a fence, it's only as good as those 2 components. It's got a monster motor (lifetime warranty, as all their tools are, now) and the fence adjustment is <b>UP FRONT!</b>--makes for easy adjustment when ( not if) it goes out of square.<br><br>
Love those bags.. really gotta get me some.I need one of those rubber mallets, too ( to whack my partner up side the head with....).

I'm a yachtcarpenter by trade. So yes I work on boats to pay for my gear. I have 15+ years of tools so I did not run out and get all these for this job. But it is a sweet job--252' yacht.<br><br>
Not crazy about travelling to work but they made me an offer I could not refuse...

I had my boy out there while I was sorting and turn around and he is over by the 05 RAM with that deadblow hammer in his hand getting ready for to lay some tuning on the quarter panel! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br><br>
That hammer is awesome. 26 ounces non-marring filled with lead shot so it really socks home. Your partner would be waking up in a few days...<br><br>
I have had a chance to handle (fondle?) some Rigid cordless stuff and am impressedd. It is better than Dewalt.<br><br>
I still prefer Panasonic--but where you gonna get it it in the country...

Hey `Druid,<br><br>
`Looks like the 1/2" Millwaulki drill I have; ancient, but nothing stronger and will twist your wrist off if you`re not careful. `Looks like you need to clean the sheetrock from the vent holes, so you won`t burn it up. `Be a shame if that happened. They don`t make drills like that anymore.

SHEETROCK! You are soooooo off my buddy list (JK) Epoxy yes, mortar mix hmmmm, sheetrock (Dammit man) Cannot have sheetrock on my boat tools.<br><br>
One thing you do not want is to have a trace of "house" on your tools or it blows the whole image.<br><br>
(Runs outside with damp scrubby sponge from kitchen)<br><br>
Actually my tools are in terrible shape--dull rusty stinking of "house" and needing some time one the wire wheel and a good waxing with Carnuba.<br><br>
And the bags are too new looking. I need to give them the biker jacket treatment for that "authentic" feel.

`Sorry, `Druid, That white looked like it might be sheetrock, and you said in the past that you were a carpenter but did not further elaborate. I`ll go wash my mouth out with......, no, good wine.
