    Ya I upgraded already, the electric ones double the power and are cheaper. 59$ for the toro, should I say toronado. Wayyyy better If you need a car dryer this is the champ. I’ll use the small one which is nice and worked but electric one is the ticket. 328990F7-1B1D-41A0-8FB7-59123E6DAA92.jpeg

    It has that, I wish it was a Lazer though. It was like $660 out the door. It's the DWS780 model.

    Awesome couldnt tell from the other pic. The xps light is way better than a laser as it shows the actual kerf of the blade where a laser can only be aligned with one side of the blade or the other. So cutting with a laser is right if keeping board from one side but board will be short the kerf if cut from the opposite side, where the xps shows true length either way as you are actually using a shadow of the blade to show what it will remove. The only time I have had issue with mine is when cutting in the full sun building a deck last year, couldnt see it very easily. Moved the saw into the shade and made it much better.

    Good choice!

    Here my Toro. Obviously an older model I've had for years. Still works great.

    It is sweet, the variable speed nice to have. The 725 cfm really blows the water off. I might wrap a shop vac foam filter over the intake just in case of debris entering and pinging car but I doubt it.

    Been on the watch for a good large bench vise for my welding table since I finished it last spring. This Wilton C2 popped up on market place yesterday a couple miles down the road. Paid a little more than I was wanting to spend but its a lot nicer vise than what I was really looking for though. A good cleaning and maybe a coat of paint will go a long way on it.

    100lbs of good old made in the USA iron.

    For size reference the plate on top of my welding table its setting on is 3/4" thick.

    Nice swivel vice. I’m still looking for one on Kijiji that swivels cause my current one does not.

    Real nice vice. Looks like the same vice I have in my shop at work. C2 vs C1.
