New tool day - again

New tool day - again

Thanks to the power of Craigslist, I sold some stuff, paid a bit extra, and got a new brushless set with 6 tools, instead of the one I got yesterday.

I want a angle grinder, shop fan and a shop blower, and I am done. Well, maybe more batteries and more chargers...sigh, it is never ending.

Just scored 4 sets for $119 each - regular price $599

Just scored 4 sets for $119 each - regular price $599

Lowe’s website just glitched and sold a DeWalt 5 tool 20V kit with 2 batteries and a charger for $119 instead of $599.

My local store had 4 sets in stock and I bought them all.

They sell for $535 on amazon, they are in low $400's on ebay, and occasionally I see some dip down to $380 or so. I am giving one to my dad, and I can’t decide if I am selling 3 sets to buy one I like, or if I will...

I did it. Garage cabinets on order

I did it. Garage cabinets on order

I have been catching myself in these massive loops of “this set has this, and this set has this, and this one cost this much and maybe I need this and that”.... well, it drives me crazy and it makes it hard to make decisions.

So, I just went with the gut feeling, and ordered this from Costco

8 pc, with bamboo top, in gray - wife didn’t want red :/

$1099 with free shipping and only $46.75 in...

My 3+1 car garage with a few rooms attached is more than half way done...

We put our builders deposit sometime in March. They started working on permits and such, and they didn’t even break ground until late May.

Here is what it looked like on 5/24

Here it is after they backfilled the dirt on 6/1

Then, the builders went crazy - here it is half framed on 6/14

6/30, fully framed, roof up, they started with the siding

7/6, all the siding was up, and they started on roof...

...now if would only stop raining every damn afternoon, I could maybe go and play. I managed to squeeze in 2 hours at Washington Park on Wednesday, and I am still feeling it in my back.

Bushwacker fender flares! Fairly simple install - hardest part was lining the flares with the included rubber strip. Now I sort of want some spacers to push the wheels out about an inch or so...

Denver Metro area real estate insanity

Denver Metro area real estate insanity

Right now, my dad is at a closing on the last two of the 5 rental apartments he owns with my mom. These were all purchased over last 10+ years.

They bought them all for cash, and rented them straight away. After all the expenses, most made around $500 or a bit more profit per month, after crazy steep HOA bills, insurance, taxes and maintenance costs.

Apartment #1 was purchased for $30k. He just...

New (very old) furniture day

New (very old) furniture day

Yesterday, I found a guy that used old slide cabinets from Boulder Community Hospital, and he converted them into end tables. Color is really going to pop in our new mostly gray house and I bought a pair.

Then today, I found an old, super heavy all meta cabinet, used by a railroad (ad said Santa Fe, sticker says Union Pacific). We degreased it and washed decades worth of grime. Once it’s...

AC died and new 2.5 ton unit is not arriving until Tuesday...

I’m tempted to go full redneck AC with a fan, bucket and some PVC pipping. For now, this will suffice - bowl of ice and a fan. Bruno approves

Identify the noise - I'll send you a gift card for some coffee :)

Identify the noise - I'll send you a gift card for some coffee :)

This has been driving me insane. Noise starts at 17 seconds or so, you can really hear it 17-25, and then on and off after that as I am driving around the block.

It sounds like metal on metal rubbing, but I am not sure where from. Leaf springs or u-bolts?? It has brand new shocks, driveshaft has been greased well... I am out of ideas.

Bonus under the truck shot of all my exhausts on the two...

Painting a truck topper at Maaco - yay or nay?

Painting a truck topper at Maaco - yay or nay?

A while ago, I got a free topper on craigslist for my 2000 Tundra. It was perfect for our needs - just an enclosure for the dogs when we got to the dog park.

Topper was the wrong color, all the clear coat has peeled off, lifters were broken... I replaced the broken stuff, installed some bars on the windows so that the mutts can’t jump out in summer when I keep the windows open for them.

But,...

Under warranty or no? I should know today

Under warranty or no? I should know today

I had my dealership replace my oil in their express lube department. They apparently checked my brakes as well, and my front pads are at 4mm, and my rear pads are at 1mm!

1mm rear pads at 17000 miles! They told me they suspect a sticking caliper because they shouldn’t be so low at such low mileage.

So, I scheduled an appointment and dropped of the car yesterday. Told them not to replace...

No luck with Alpha M-65

No luck with Alpha M-65

Went to the surplus store to buy an Alpha M-65 jacket (Vietnam era military jacket). Tried the regular fit and the slim fit, and hated how they fit me :/

I always wanted one, and I am pissed that it didn’t work.

National Western Stock Show

National Western Stock Show

Few months ago, we went to the National Western Stock Show. My wife has been riding since she was a child, so she loves all that stuff. I go to take photos :)

This time, I brought my 6D, 50D, 400mm f5.6L and 70-200mm f2.8L. Somehow, I left all my loaded batteries at home, and I brought some half charged ones, and I didn’t have enough juice to shoot all night, but I got a few decent shots...
