Tool show in the Greater NYC area
I went to the AW Meyer, in Ridgefield New Jersey, today for their annual Ok-Tool-Berfest. Pretty cool event, and everybody was there (obviously not Ridgid):
Bosch, Metabo, Dewalt, PC, Hitachi, Milwaukee, Makita, etc.
One tool I became enamored with was the PC 4 1/2 trim saw. It looks like a little circular saw.
As for handtools, the Crescent Rapid Slide adjustable wrench is so cool
they make a ratchet with the similar technology. It makes adjusting a snap, and the torque increases as you wrench a bolt, etc.
Also like the Kreg pocket hole jig, and almost pulled the trigger on that.
All in all, I was tempted to buy several items, but the prices at these events don't even come close to Amazon, or HD Lowes for that matter.
The only great deal I saw was a corded Bosch 9amp recip saw, with a nice Bosch extension cord, and bag for $59. I have a cordless one so I didn't pick one up, although I should've for that price. If anybody needs a sawzall and lives near NYC/NJ, you should swing by and pick one up.
But, this is the last tool show/demo I go to, because the pricing sucks.....nothing special.
