The Rigid stuff is great!

That's actually my impact gun but I also have the screwdriver/drill. They're a life saver. I originally bought the Harbor Freight impact gun that was corded and it couldn't even take off the lug nuts on my tire. It's also huge and doesn't fit into anything confined. Waste of money. The Rigid one has no problems zipping almost anything off. I've rarely run into things that it can't handle. It's also small enough that it can fit into tight spaces.

I have two batteries so I can swap between them when one gets low to keep moving.

A lot of parts is an understatement. :) This is my garage right now. I'm not even sure how long this will take me to get through.. probably won't be manageable until the end of the Summer.

      y? Looks like you've got one there in place of the engine. Bet the car really moved well! Looks like a pretty good job stripping that car down. You probably do have a lot of parts! Label label label. I'm surprised at how much space lawn mower parts took up after I took them off a bad mower... more

        • I have just the Ridgid driver, and it's pretty nice. - Puckdropper, Tue Jul 13 2021 2:41pm
          Not quite as nice as the Makita, but it has plenty of power and a good build so it's easy to use. The local model railroad club has some Hitachis (I bought them) and the driver can only be used on low speed. It's awful but it does the job. You need to get a few things: Good plastic boxes, a lab... more
          • My friend was the first one to pick one up. - Erik_, Mon Jul 19 2021 1:04am
            After seeing how well it worked for the cost, I got it too. (It was on sale.) I also have the Rigid circular saw but that doesn't really get that much use. It's nice the same batteries work for everything Rigid though. My FIL has some Makita stuff, nice stuff too. So far, I don't have plastic bo... more
            • Cardboard boxes are better for larger things anyway. - Puckdropper, Mon Jul 19 2021 4:44am
              Just my opinion, but it seems like the plastics they use are really well suited to the "shoe box" size boxes and most the larger sizes are too weak. Sure, there's some nice ones out there but you'll pay way more than a decent cardboard box costs. So label maker sorted! I found a DVD the other d... more
