    Rattle can shaker tool I made

    Reciprocating saw blade and muffler clamp. Works great. Don't know if I had to, but I used a propane torch to take the blue out of the blade.

    Just bought a Milwaukee 2" sander/polisher

    I debated with myself buying it because its use is limited. It only sands and polishes, but it does it nicely. A friend has one so I used it and liked it so much, I bought one. What I like is the control, you can idle this thing right down to nothing. But for $200, yikes. That's how...

    socket holders for top tray of a roller?
