I have just the Ridgid driver, and it's pretty nice.
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 label maker, and some good shelving racks. Just sort and label as you go. I'm not perfect, but it's so nice to walk to my hardware rack and grab the box labeled "PVC fittings" and go. (And we're only talking about $100-500 investment, depending on how big you go.)

Wait a minute... is that a dark aqua can of spray paint? Are you trying to recreate Puckdropper's Place Message Boards without recreating Puckdropper's Place Message Boards?

    • The Rigid stuff is great! - Erik_, Sun Jul 11 2021 1:26am
      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... 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
            • Usually that's for stuff that's going into storage and I'll probably not look at for a long time. We also have those annoying spider crickets in the basement and they definitely find their way into a cardboard box. Car parts, doesn't matter but like blankets and pillows it does.

              • You need to print out the Puckdropper's Place Logo and place - Puckdropper, Tue Jul 27 2021 4:14am
                it on the hutch. Sorry I don't have a "high resolution" version, I made it when 640x480 was all a monitor could do. I get having to defend your stuff... Our basement is 99% water proof, but if that sump pump quits (after really heavy rains or whatever) then we get moisture. I won't put anything... more
