  5. Good Read

    The part he missed entirely is that part where one takes a gook hard look at the customer base there are a whole lot of people who are inclined to spend a few dollars more for all the fancy lad crap. If a boutique and fancy phrases and a little bespoke french helps separate the fools from their coin - - well I won't quarrel with it.

  16. Smart 2X4 $900-$1200 EACH!

  17. drilling hard rock??

    it happens to be the part pf that line that I can carry around without that usual three boys and a man
  18. drilling hard rock??

    I frequently have a reason to drill hard rock. I have never succeeded. I have a half inch milwaukee rotary style hammer drill. Is there a bit I can use to drill rock for fastening screws? 3/16 size holes. I'm told the drill I have is insufficient that I need a hilti style hammer drill. but I don't have a Hilti.

  20. drilling hard rock??

    thanks I'v dug lots of drainage ditches deep as my waist and holes too. IT's been my miserable experience to just happen to encounter all the really, really big rocks necessitating that I just dig them up too. I think they know what I'm planning and spend weeks migrating through the soil to get right in my path. I considered that this tool might let me drill the rocks enough so's I can bust em with my forged iron bar.
