    I only own work clothes. I'll text/ internet at break with the best of them, but none of that when there's work to be done.

    Not being prepared for lunch is a major time suck. I was very guilty of that when I was a landscraper employee years ago. Now, if I'm working for someone, I bring lunch. As an employee, i feel its my obligation to show up on time with lunch and water ready to go.

    What is the current opinion on green chips and robbing nitrogen? I heard the theory years ago and it resurfaced again this winter.

    That's pretty important if you are a snake. Wouldn't want to get you half way down and have you get stuck.

    I'd saw two sides of that and frame it into a building as a brace.

    I tried to link to Logrite before. They make great tools, I've gone to their shop and meet them in person. Great people.

    I think battery saws are coming on a commercial scale. They are here on a consumer level, and improving rapidly. They are taking over the corded power tool market right now.

    The 6.7 Ford, and I've heard some Duramax's, are prone to fuel system failure due to water in the fuel, and then Ford and GM void your warranty to the tune of 17k or something like that. Total BS, as only an inferior filter system would let the water in in the first place. 98.5-02 Cummins used a poor lift pump design that would fail and ruin the injection pump, so an aftermarket pump and filter was the solution. On later common rail Cummins the pump filter combos are for people making above stock horsepower.

    The difference between home raised and commercial eggs is astounding. So much so that commercial eggs should only be legally called "egg-like" objects.

    The problem with retrofitting is that the tool is still the same old tool. In the case of Milwaukee, there are circuit boards that protect the tools from harming themselves.

    M18 here. Nothig compares to the Milwaukee 9.0 batteries. 20/60 volt is a gimmick, you can only pull so many watts out of a battery, and the biggest Dewalt is only 6.0 amp hours, and they don't charge as fast as the Milwaukee 9.0s. I've got the M18 Fuel 1/2" impact, Sawzall, 1/4" hex impact, 1/2" hammer drill, 7 1/4" circ saw, 10" miter saw, 5/8" rotary hammer drill,and a few LED lights. I'll be adding the M18 bandsaw, angle grinder, and a few other things. Milwaukee is very dedicated to "cutting the cord", as they say, and many of the cordless tools are actually based on the corded version, but perform even better.

    And now they act like they invented the quad trak. CIH didn't either, CAT did it in the sixties.
