  • My Vote For New Useless Tool...

    Just received the Lowes propaganda email. As I was slicing through the canned "meat" substance, I came across this:
    Campbell Hausfeld Cordless Air Compressor With Radio

    I can't see the usefulness of having music while you are using a noisy air compressor. (I can just imagine the HI-FI this thing will have )

    If they really wanted to have a cool product, they'd have included a CB radio so you could call someone to fix your flat!!

      I guess they got to make their job site radio... to bad you'll blow out the speakers when you turn it up enough to hear the music.

      Should have stuck with the good stuff like the compressor i have. Ugly as my neighbors dog but works great!

        This is almost as dumb as waterproof cigarettes - so you can smoke in the shower.

          HEY RIDGID, this is not how to make your "revolutionary" jobsite radio!
          Notes:
          A) include multiple functions
          B) make sure they are useful functions
          C) make sure that the functions are "homogenious" totgether
          Don't:
          add stuff from shop use to stuff for kitchen use or stuff for the fishing trip added to stuff for the jobsite or stuff for the wife to stuff for the jobsite etc.
          HOWEVER,
          You could always add free snacks in with the offer (note to Ridgid: men like snacks or season tix to professional sports)

          C, dat's how CH messt up - wot dey wuz smokin made dem eat dose free snacks dey wux givin away widit.

            .
            (Of course most men would shell out the $99.00 for the tool if it came with $6.00 of goodies, after all we aren't the ones who have to pay the bills)

            Make sure it is small enough to hide from the wife!

              Phil, I think there is some kind of combination Municipal/County/State/Federal law against quoting yourself and then posting a reply too that quote. We won't even go near the part about using the internet to talk to yourself.

                maybe some of us enjoy talking to ourselves on line. At least we know someone heard us. What? I said at least some one heard us. did i miss anything?

                Or there is the possibility that his wife also has his password and log on to talk to each other. Which if they find this topic interesting good for them they're a perfect match. If not he may be Schizophrenic like me. (love that spell check)

                Back to what Phil G was saying before he broke the taboo of specking to one's self on line....

                What is the use for a cordless chainsaw? You'll need several battery's to do any small job. You'd do better getting the skil 9 or 12" pruning wood blades for your sawzall.

                    sparky, don't knock it till you try it. i have a cordless chainsaw and it works great for a quick trim. can't drop a whole tree, but enough to give it a good haircut also it's 10 times faster than a cordless sawzall

                      So which brand tools is your chainsaw. How many times does it drain a battery?

                        the tools are 18 volt. chainsaw is a homelite, same now as the roybi. never used it enought to kill the battery. it's good for pruning the ficus that comes over the fence. also the 4 piece kit came with a pole style sawzall, a hedge trimmer that also works good and the 4th i can't remember. the batteries are the same as the roybi and it's now the same parent co. my wife likes the cordless wet dry vac. (dust buster style).

                            So who makes a cordless chainsaw? Maybe we can convince Milwaukee to make a V28 model!
                            Then it would be awesome!
