  1. Too bad half mast doesn't seem to mean much any more.

    I think I've posted this before, but it's worth doing it again. Very different Pearl Harbor footage than most of us have seen all our lives.
  3. The last job I had (almost 20 years ago) was for an industrial electrical supply wholesaler. We had a guy on-site at a nearby power plant (coal) - we actually sold stuff to the maintenance company (PMC if anyone's familiar). Anyway, our guy suppled Metabo angle grinders to them, even though we weren't a distributor. They told him that they'd used 'em all, and the Metabos held up better than any others, including DeWalt, Bosch, etc.

  5. That's why Dad traded in his '75 red cab 1066 for a '78 4440. The 10 was a horse but the Deere cab was so much quieter and tighter, and the 4440 was a pretty decent horse too.
  6. I have four M18 batteries. Two of them are the little 1.5 amp/hour batts, which I've owned for five years. I use them almost daily in my impact driver and drill, and they still act like new. I had a 4.0 replaced under warranty (which is three years). Now have a 4.0 and 5.0 to go along with the little guys. Great batteries.
  7. Ok, now I know. I hardly ever go by there. They used to buy milk replacer from me.
  8. Who's the ex-dairyman that you speak of. Ron S.?

    An illegal drug became legal.
  10. That happens about as often as grout gets sealed.
  11. I've read, but can't confirm, that within a given brand and type the only difference in the higher end units is a longer warranty. I'd believe that based on my experience.
  12. I'll bet he's been told - just wouldn't hear it. Good for him.

    Speaking of .50 cal.,
  14. Same here. You're right, most older folks really enjoy a little company, even if it's just for a few minutes.
  15. Too bad the 16 fell between the cracks. Great compromise between 12 and 20.
