    Yay or Nay. I polish and wax every year in the spring and fall by hand. Would this do a good job?

    You would be better off with the Random orbital polisher. You can burn through the clearcoat and paint with this one if your not careful.

    Excellent advice. The HF near me does not stock the random orbit polisher. There is only one store in the state that is over 3 hours away that has the polisher. I've been trying to buy another without success. My first one disappeared. I'm about to give up and buy a Porter Cable.

    Thanks, Matt for the link. I just bought one. I had a PC 7424 that I bought and loved back in 2008. Somewhere along the way, it disappeared from my workshop. So I've lost two polishers. This one I'm going to keep in my bedroom closet.

    A little bit of this, a little bit of that...
    Are there coupons for the 44" US General tool boxes? Every coupon I get in the mail can't be used towards the tool boxes.

    Seems like every coupon you get now doesn't cover any of the HF "Premium" tool lines.

    IKR? And they seem to be adding more and more "Premium" lines to their stock. $439 for the tool box isn't bad, but if I can get a 20% or 25% coupon it'd be a lot better.

    They starting to get a good name for that line so the price is going up or no discounts. SHUCKS!

    Their boxes are great, and aggressively priced as is compared to other brands.

    I don’t think they do coupons for them often because of that. They’re a great value, I absolutely love my 44” box I bought awhile back. I plan on adding more to it based on the experience, the price points, and the available add-ons being so nicely done.

    Only thing I wish they’d do is offer magnetic bits like paper towel roll holders in black or matching colors to the current lineup.

    The actual box accessories like end cabinets and end lockers are fantastic. A hutch would only make them better!

    Good to know. I've been ogling them, for sure. Just have to wait for my grown-up shop at the future house before I can justify getting one, wherever/whenever that may be.

    I live in the salt belt and every winter I use aerosol cans of Fluid Film to give my cars a safety barrier from all the damage the brine does. Would you suggest this sprayer for something like that? Lanolin based, sprays on like paint and then gardens into a solid wax coating.

    Thanks for your advice.

    So much wasted timed sifting through the junk to get to the HF info. This used to be one of my fav threads. I find myself visiting TW less and less for this reason.

    I've used mine for spraying both solid and clear stains and latex paints. Can't offer any advice on Fluid film. Would probably spray ok but I'd be worried about cleaning the sprayer afterward to remove any of the residual "wax".

    This sprayer is great, have used it quite a bit with staining shingle sided houses.

    No complaints in professional use.
