Once his place was done we moved to another farm for a month and started a huge cleanup project.
For payment I took the scrap metal and some machines. Was going to cut up the machines but the scrap
price tanked so just going to wait or try to sell the machines.

Thinking about building a firewood processor out of this old log loader pump and motor and a huge cylinder from a clark 18k forklift.prentice.jpgclark 1.jpg

Now I know who built the Menards' brand Masterforce stuff I have.

Really considering going Milwaukee though, could sail my MF stuff to a friend. Milwaukee has a 600 ft lb impact, the big PC is just over 1/2 that.

I went with these cause the price was cheap and got good deals through Lowes. If it has a 320 lb hit that's enough for me. If I need more my IR 1" pneumatic hits at 1200. :D

Speaking of cheep, got this Harbor freight 12" slide chopper for a $100 at their parking lot sale. Just got my blade mounted and ready to start the band room interior build soon.

An update to our Porter Cable collection. Just added the Big flood light using a gift card I received for my bday.
Got the smaller light this last year along with the shopvac and radio-charger.

Now we see they offer a 1/2" impact so that and the sabre saw are still on the "need to get" list. :pirate:

I got a Ryobi LED flood light like that. When the battery goes dead, It has a 120vac plug. I like it.

I have more Horror Fraught stuff than the good stuff, only spend $$$ on stuff that gets used a lot. I don't have much that my IR air impact at 500 lbs or so won't break, got a 3/4" HF grade socket set and a long bar for the occasional big stuff.

They got a 1/2'' dr supposed to be 1400. I'd have to see it working.
