My friend was the first one to pick one up.

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 boxes but I have cardboard ones. A lot of the trim is bigger and won't really fit in it anyway, but it should be okay for the smaller stuff.

My wife last night was going through one of our shelves and went "When did you get a label maker?" I never bought a label maker before so I said it must have been hers. She doesn't remember buying it either. ...well either way, label maker can be checked off the list. :)

I also have a bunch of shelving in the basement. Some of it, I still need to assemble. A few years ago this company was going out of business and they were selling their steel warehouse shelving for cheap. It was like 10ft high but I cut it in half so now each one makes two 5ft high shelves.

Haha, good catch on the spray can! Too dark for PDPMB (did we ever acronym that?). My wife got it for something but I don't think she ever used it so now it just floats around the garage, continually getting moved "out of the way".

      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

        • 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
