Re: Anyone use a belt/disc sander for metalwork?

Yep. I have a 6x48. Use the hell out of it. Well worth the $$ in my opinion. Use Aluminum Oxide for it. That what's most readily available. The belts last longer than the discs.... Obviously. I...

Re: HF 7 drawer Side Box for 42 Cart? Anyone have it?

The current model is the gloss red to match the new gloss red roller. The textured weird red is what matched the older roller.

Re: Plasma torch....oh, how I love thee!

I have a miller. Love it! Last time I really used it for a larger project was replacing the old floorboards in a VW. Just cut the the whole inner section out, ran along the edge with an air hammer....

Re: Metal-cutting circular blades

I've used them in a circular saw to cut plate. Worked way better that I thought it would and leaves a nice edge. The guys above aren't lying about using a face shield, hearing protection, and...

Re: Craftsman C3 Li-Ion Battery on Sale ...

Seems like they're inconsistent then. I used my impact to remove the entire front suspension from my truck when I lifted it. Hot day, never really gave it a break, and I did the whole job with one...

Re: Craftsman C3 Li-Ion Battery on Sale ...

I have one Li-Ion for my C3 set. It's a marked improvement over the NiCads. So far I've had no issues with it. My C3 stuff on the other hand is really starting to get beat up. It hasn't had the...

Re: Craftsman Work Bench 8 Feet Stainless Steel Top?

I bought just the top a year ago or so. It's plenty sturdy and is holding up well. I don't think I paid that much for it though. I think I got it on sale.

Re: Matco Vs. Snap On Toolbox Drop Test

Besides being a crappy advertising video on Matco's behalf, they've also gone and deleted all the negative comments people had left and only leaving the two positive ones. Pretty weak if you ask me.

Re: Impact Extensions

I grabbed a set of the HF 1/2" wobble impact extensions out of impulse awhile ago. They were on-sale pretty cheap I think. Anyway, tearing my truck apart this weekend they got put to good use. They...
