  • Although not for me, i bought my gf some riding gear for Christmas. She has been rocking my old fly mesh jacket that was way to big on her. This is the one she wanted and go figure with ALL the holiday deals out there this was the one danm jacket that never went on sale. But at least i got some zilla cash out of it.

    They had the same one at my local yamaha dealer, but they wanted $25 more and wouldnt budge on the price or throw in anything extra, its a shame, i much rather support my local dealer.

      Curious why you didn't just rent one?

      I know it's a big job but you could stage all the cutting to be done at once.

            I know it's a big job but you could stage all the cutting to be done at once.
            First, the work will take several months to complete. 3 bathroom complete remodels, down to studs, with tiled/stone showers and tile halfway up the walls. And new countertops. One of those jobs will involve expanding the bathroom into what is currently a small bedroom, and making the rest of that bedroom into a pantry. (It was a maid's quarters right off the laundry/utility room) The project will also involve a complete kitchen remodel, with several changes to the current floor area due to removing the existing small pantry, built-in ovens, a small desk area, and a built-in whole-wall cabinet area at the end of the dining room.

            Second, I can't even imagine the complexity and opportunity for errors when staging cut pieces. Maybe it's just the way I work, but even with the wood floors I've been installing, there have been numerous occasions where I had to hand-work a piece several times to get it to fit just right.

            It was $270. I can imagine a few weekend rentals, and the time/hassle to drive to pick up/drop off, eating up that amount of money easily. Plus now I get to keep the saw forever.

            My way of doing home remodeling probably isn't for everyone, but . . .
            Patient zero.


            Partly stabilized, partly curious.

            • ^ +10000. When I did hardwood floors several years ago, I had people ask why I bought a floor stapler (Bostich, ~$400 or so) instead of renting one. Exact same reasons as you mention. Plus, have you seen some rental tools? I wasn't about to risk messing up the floors due to a poorly maintained/abused floor stapler.

                • Hehe.. I am a FIRM believer in buying a good tool if I know I would use it at some point in the future.. I just consider flooring a "once in my lifetime" endeavour!

                    The FZ-10 is awesome, smoking a chicken using alternating current only seems right noting it's Arkie, enduro in the snow on street tires...yes please.

                    I bought these BT speakers for the daughters after auditioning a few. Anker makes some quality product and these little things perform well above their weight. Amazing bass from a 7" package.

                                I love it! I used to take new MG's from ships to compounds and then onto trains for transport as my first job. It is a great sign that you could drive it all the way from Pittsburgh. This would not have been a sure thing even when new. After we had to clear a compound to put all the cars on trains the Japanese car compound would be empty but the BLM (MG's maker) compound would always have several remaining cars that wouldn't go. But we loved the BLM cars because they were fun. We would always run for the few Triumph Stags before someone else got there. They were V8s and super cool. I think they still look beautiful.
