I had a job at work that required a long reach, cutoff disc to reach some welds deep in a box. Bought a Jet version. Man o man! Now I got to get one for my personal stash!

I bought 10 (yes 10!) new Walter Carbide Burr bits and a new Chicago Pneumatic 90° die grinder second hand (shop clean out).

I got the bits for $75 - a new set of only 5 is $235 new up here! And the die grinder for $50! I was pretty happy with the day.

Picked up a new timing light. Nothing wrong with the old Craftsman, except that I think it's older than me. The new one does timing, RPM, dwell, voltage, etc. all in my hand. Thought I'd catch up to modern times.

Bought two of these ratchet straps from Home Depot to use for rigging to remove box. For around $9 apiece worked great and can use for tie downs after this.

I have four of those Heavy-Duty Ratchet Tie-Downs with (metal) J Hook - they are very strong and very handy.

Every time my trailer gets borrowed, some of my straps go missing. Those are handy things. I use mine to lift the cab and such too.
