I would, but it would be unusable in the winter. I do have earplugs to use. I'm sure my wife would object to me putting it in her greenhouse attached to the back of the garage. wink

My dad got me a 4.5” cordless 20V Dewalt grinder! I’m eager to try it out. I owe him a vise as I broke his a little while back. 🤦🏼‍♂️

Zerk Zapper Grease Fitting Cleaner. We'll see if it can get the one fitting in the front end that won't take grease. I got the version that has interchangeable pistons - typical hammer strike piston and air-hammer adapter. I'm going to try the gentler approach before going to the air tool. I like this model - made in USA, and double o-ringed - which is why I got it, not so much the air hammer adapter.

Oh I forgot! I also bought a little timing light. No more guessing anymore or going by ear!

Bought a Hitachi 10” Table Saw. Found it at a OKC Pawn Shop for what I thought was a good negotiated price. Appears like new or lightly used.

Metal brake attachment, to be used with my 12 ton press. I did a couple quick trials on 1/8" mild steel, and it works well. The specs that say it will handle up to 3/8" steel may be a bit optimistic, but for most brackets, looks like it will work well. I caught a free shipping plus discount deal that I couldn't pass up. My bench vice will appreciate not taking a beating to bend heavier metal.
