While a 1500W (115v) heater won’t heat an entire 2 car garage, it will still help. I have a portable A/C that has a heat pump setting for winter heat and it can normally make the garage comfortable enough to not need a jacket but when it is really cold or I have had the heat off for a few days, I use a 1500W IR heater to give it a boost and heat things up more quickly. I have it over the where I stand when working at my bench and it makes a huge difference by creating a nice zone of comfort until the A/C – Heater can catch up.

BTW, I suspect that at least some of the weird behavior we have been seeing lately may be due to the fact that they have been testing https. There could be some other changes as well.

Someone posted a topic about the 11% rebates at Lowes for those of you in areas that also have Menards (Midwest) who apparently regularly have 11% rebates. It looks like Home Depot also offers the rebate as well. Check it out for links to the rebate forms.

Home Depot and Lowe’s have military discount. For Home Depot you show your military ID. They don’t offer military discounts for online or special order purchases. For Lowe’s you need to setup a web account and they have an online verification process. Once verified you give them your phone number in the checkout line and they apply the discount. I’ve not tried ordering from Lowe’s online but I would assume the discount would work.

It does Wayne. I helped my grandfather get his set up. You just sign into your MyLowes account that you used when you went through the verification process and order from there. The discount will be automatically applied.

No problem, just hoping to get it with a 10-15% discount. Ebay’s been fine when it comes to purchasing tools – I’ve only bought new ones from them. If I didn’t already have a full DW setup, Milwaukee would’ve been my first choice. That’s a topic for a different thread though.

At my local Home Depot, the military discount is for “Service Connected” only, meaning you have a service connected disability and your VA card must state this on the card. For Lowes, once you set up the account, anyone who knows your phone number can use it. Your spouse, children, friends, and even all of the “day laborers” from Home Depot parking lots.

One more thing about Lowes, my local store has set up two parking spaces near the front for veterans.

Remember this?

For those with the Work Sharp 3000, the wide blade attachment was discontinued. I was unaware of this til today. Did some digging. First and only place I could find:
http://www.tool-on-store.com/products/Work-Sharp-Wide-Blade-Attachment-for-Item%23-3353000-%E2%80%94-Model%23-WSSA0002020.html
$21 + tax (my tax was around $1.20). Free 3 week shipping. From India, however. Checkout takes you to paypal for payment.
If this is a true price and is real, fantastic deal since this attachment was over $60 retail at USA stores and is super hard to find since discontinued.
Just ordered mine at 2:30pm PST. Is 5:00 am or so over in India. Will see if they have in stock and fulfill the transaction when they come to work.

—The Carpenter Bee is derived from the Ancient Greek word wood-cutter “xylokopos/ξυλοκὀπος”


I tried to order it. Payment was through Paypal. The seller never completed the order, and Paypal cancelled the hold. So, no wide blade attachment, but no money was exchanged. I find myself using Paypal whenever it’s offered on a site I don’t already have an account with. Less chance of bad things happening.

With a lot of manufacturers the seller needs to be an authorized reseller. Not sure on DeWalt in particular. I bought my Steelex jointer off of eBay but made sure they were an authorized Steelex dealer before pulling the trigger.

I also bought a Canon camera off of eBay and there are a TON of unauthorized sellers for cameras. Canon lists all of their dealers on their website so I checked and was good to go.

Here’s a extremely hot deal, well tip, well, hack kind of but totally legit.

This might get longer than you would like to read so the product is the 3M Versaflo TR-300 PAPR setup which isn’t for everyone for sure. Skip the rest if you don’t need a new respirator.

In the earlier stages of my woodworking hobby, I used mainly hand tools and enjoyed it greatly. In the past few years I have moved to a lot of power tools and seemed to be sick a lot. I’m slow, so it’s taken me a long while to figure out my issues but it’s the dust. In the past couple of months I have been working really hard at switching to tools that I could collect from a bit better AND actually finding ways to go back to using mostly hand tools to solve my issues. Apparently I’m really sensitive to this stuff.

I won’t be able to eliminate everything. I’ll still run a chainsaw mill, jointer, planer, lathe and bandsaw on a regular basis. My planer and jointer have great DC now that I have switched those out to different machines. The bandsaw is horrible and the chainsaw mill is even worse. I spin my lathe plenty often enough and I’ll also power on a router table here and there but that’s it for woodworking. I have a grinder for metal working and the DC on that is bad as well. So without being able to eliminate all of my trouble areas regardless of the DC against the wall, I started researching respirators. The 3M Versaflo is about as good as they get for professionals and hobbyists alike. Right now the Versaflo TR-300 on Amazon is priced north of $1400. Kind of hard to pay $1400 for a respirator right? I agree, half that is still damn expensive, but if you have a need then you have a need, I have a need. The only other option is to quit the hobby.

So I did some research, these things are manufactured in the UK. I also found the power supply for charging the battery runs on 100V-240V and uses a generic computer type plug to go to the wall like many things shipped world wide. The model numbers are a bit different but overall it’s a regional thing over an actual different unit. So, I went over to Ebay.uk and found I could get this for about half off shipped. So that’s what I did. I ordered the actual pump/battery/filter unit in a separate auction as the helmet, reason for that was I wanted the extended battery and I didn’t need a massive hard hat helmet so I got a cheaper helmet that still protects the face and front part of the head and a better base unit. All said I paid $759 shipped. I’m still waiting to receive the helmet but the base came in and I was able to get the battery on the charger and charged so i know it works the way I hoped.

Sorry for the long post but if anyone on here is going through the pain and discomfort I’ve been dealing with the last few years, it could help.

If you have any questions let me know, this is not a respirator/DC discussion so let’s not get into a big thing on this thread. Any questions on the deal itself I’m happy to field those.

- Lazyman

Absolutely I did Nathan. In fact I probably would have ended up with that one due to price. The versaflo is far superior. The battery lasts longer and it’s lithium not nicad. Trend wants $250 for a spare battery which you would need because you can’t just throw the battery on the charger after each use it will get a memory and never last long. Also the versaflo has a hose which takes all the weight off your head for long turning sessions or whatever. Plus, there are several filter choices for the versaflo for different applications. So it is well rounded. There’s definitely many reasons why one retails around $450 and the other $1000 higher.

The trend unit isn’t bad but you have to be mindful of the battery. Sealed units like this require the battery to work or the filter doesn’t.

I’ve had it for about 2 months now and so far so good. The only problem I have had is with the build plate but nothing serious, though I am thinking about getting a glass one. The most complex thing that I have printed so far, mostly just to see if I could, is a cyclone for the shop vac. I printed it in 2 parts to get a little extra height (13”). It literally took 2 full days to print. I am running mine using the mini SD card (that came with it) rather than using the PC to feed the gcode. I had a power outage in the middle of printing the cyclone and it was able to resume right where it left off.

EDIT: one of these days I am either going to create a blog about it or start a forum topic related to 3D-printing for the workshop to see what others are doing with them.

The plys usually look pretty cool once turned or sculpted. BTW, if you sign up for their email list you’ll get the notifications for future promotions. Seems like they come about every 3 or 4 months but this is the best one that I have seen so far.

David

- Rink

With Peachtree not being there, there wasn’t much in terms of “deals”. The only real deal I took advantage of was Woodpecker offering $10 off $100 purchase. Also, if you have Woodpeckers in your sight, get there first thing before they open and rush to their booth if you want a chance at any of their retired One-Time tools. They will have some there; first come first serve. Can’t think of anything else that was a fantastic deal off hand, but it is fun to look through all the booths. With your location, you may have more nearby vendors than we did in Tampa. Happy hunting.
