      Years ago i had a timex calculator watch, i think it was anomg the first if not the first. It was back in 1991 i think.
      Had that watch for many years, and it was handy to have for quick calculations on the job.
      Why no change Bob?

        I toss all my change at the end of the day in a big jar. I save the money for a while, sometimes a year or more, then use it to buy a big ticket tool for the shop. It just makes me feel like those loose coins are going toward something useful. I dip intomit now and then for a handful of quarters for the car wash or something like that, but i pretty much save it all. When the jar is full i usually take it to the bank and dump it in the coinstar machine. The 'take' is usually in neighborhood of 150 to 200 dollars. But formthe past 3 years i have not cashed it in. I'm saving it toward a wide belt sander, at least that's what i have had my eye on. I figure i have about 750 right now, which is about 400 short but i haven't counted my last jar yet so maybe only need 200 more.

          +1 I do the same thing. My last "cash in" got me one of these, Mojack EZ. In the past I've purchased with my spare change, a RIDGID belt/spindle sander, RIDGID impact driver/drill driver combo, Freud fixed/plunge router combo, and some Jet parallel clamps.

            That Mojack looks like a good deal. I drop the mower deck to clean, sharpen, or change blades, etc, which is a pain on my mower. If i ever buy another it will have a drive over deck I think.

              It is a good deal, the only regret I have is that I didn't buy one sooner. I'm even considering getting one of these. Anything that keeps me off my knees when working on something is a good deal in my book.

                    Ya got me. I actually clicked on picture #4 and then copied the address hoping that's what would come up when the link was opened. But alas, and quite a lass she is, it didn't work out that way and you had to work a little bit in order to enjoy!
