Nice find!

I'd love a Bridgeport. But shipping 3000 miles would be prohibitive. Especially when I could source one locally.

I have been contemplating about riding my bicycle across the country. I’ll put the Bridgeport on a trailer and tow it to Southern California - but only if I can get a favorite beverage out of the deal. wink. It’s really nice.

I recently picked this up ... ("You want that thing? You can take it" kind of deal ... wink )

Sterling 1000 sander, complete kit in original wooden box. Has two extra pads, two boxes of extra filters, tubes of bearing grease and a bottle of oil.

It's pretty neat. Works!

I just picked up an exhaust donut removal tool. A must in my line of business.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

I've been on a mini spree lately. Noise can be an issue around here. The compressor lives in the garage and the garage is attached to the house. I tend to work when everyone else is sleeping, so I try not to make too much noise. Most times, I'll grab an electric tool over an air tool. So, in the last two weeks, I upped my Milwaukee battery powered game. Picked up a belt sander and a disc sander/polisher. I also picked up a mini pry bar set from the tool truck because it looked cute. A 5" carbide scraper and a battery powered soldering iron. That one will come in handy with all the car wiring I need to do in the near future!

I have a couple Milwaukee M12 tools that I use on a regular basis, but that belt sander/bandfile has been on the wish list for a while. Looks super handy!

I bought a Milwaukee 18V Fuel jig saw with the D handle for a small job at home. I am impressed with the performance and weight. Feels really well built. I bought the tool only, no battery or charger, because I already have those items. All the local tool sellers in the Vancouver area were running them at $199 CDN. Pretty happy with the purchase.
