So I will be buying tools based on reviews and my BFF'S advice.
**SIDE NOTE- My BFF (Best Friend Forever) is a 40 something guy that is not a professional carpenter but did put a full 2nd story on his 1 story ranch and he did it working around his full time job.
Here is the power tools I have:
- Craftsman table saw
- Skil circular saw
- Black and Decker cordless drill with 2 batteries
- Portable air compressor
- Makita 12" Dual Slider Miter Saw (LS1216L)
- DEWALT 10 Amp Reciprocating Saw (DW304PK)
- Paslode Cordless 16 Gauge Finish Nailer (900600)
- Paslode Framing Nailer (cordless)
- Hand held Router- (???)
- Dremal (4000-6)
I went to Home Depot, our local Makita dealer, and of course they did not have what I was looking for so I turned my search to online. I found what I was looking for on EBAY. (Imagine that) but I got more than I was planning on. Here is what I bought:
|Makita 12" Dual Slider Miter Saw with folding portable stand|
While I was on the black hole called EBAY I also found this:
I got this little gem brand new for $247.00 plus $10.99 shipping. This list at Lowes for $349.00 plus tax. So that is a savings of about $100.00 not to mention my time and fuel. AND-Sales tax saved @7.25% was $75.83
So now I wait for my windows from Menards and my tools from all over the country to arrive and while I wait I will be doing demolition on my new laundry room. Pics to come this weekend.
