    New toolbox I traded for. Gave a buddy of mine a yard I maintain a few miles from his house for it. Win for me.

    I just got the 20 ton pneumatic bottle jack. It is awesome. No more dragging my low profile jack around the driveway and my pancake compressor can lift the front end of the truck in a few seconds. Plus with my small lift I used to require a 4x4, not anymore.

    I previously used the cheap (currently $10 on sale) HVLP spray gun with single-stage 040 superwhite paint with excellent results. Now I'm trying their 2-gun kit for $40 which also has a smaller detail gun, the HF prices are really unbeatable for these things. I'm going to try the larger gun for the garage door and house trim but am thinking to try the HF Krause & Becker airless paint sprayer pictured below for around $160 on sale as I think it would get the house painted in a day or two vs. the 6 months+ I currently have invested with rollers on stucco to get about half way done. Anybody have experience with that large airless sprayer? I have never tried such a setup.

    I’ve used this with deck stain instead of a high end sprayer, we were really going to use it and then throw it away after the job. It worked great, so we cleaned it instead. Still use it with deck stain when we don’t want to use the other, no complaints.

    Thanks for the feedback, that says it all that it was worth cleaning. It seems like every 10’ of eves this paints would pay for itself, time to try it. Thanks again.

    I've been pretty impressed with the Titanium 125. I used it for 7 hours today without much down time. Burns 10 guage with no problems. Says it had a 3 minute duty cycle but I never had it over heat in the 50-60 degrees it was today. Wish it could hold a 10lb spool but no biggie.

    Yes, just as good as MIG in my opinion just more clean up with the spatter and slag. No need to worry about shielding gas blowing away when you are outside or just running out in general.

    Anybody like their pocket air blower? I want something to blow dust off occasionally. Had their rubber tipped blower years ago and it’s gone missing, it also sucked, so want something better.

    Not HF, but I have one of these and it has a high flow nozzle. I use it to blow out the dusty corners of the shop and all the hard to reach areas.
