And, here'* my new drill. Had 2 choices, the other one was $10 less. But only had 7 amps, this one is 9 amps. The other one was smaller, which I liked, but this one felt better made.

Nice drill. Looks like it was made by Tool Shop, plus I can see the Menard label. Tool Shop is pretty decent for price.

Yep, tool shop. I've had good luck with that brand. Good prices, and haven't had any problems.

I have a Tool Shop angle grinder and jigsaw. Both work great. I did replace the angle grinder once, but it was a couple years old and I used it way to hard. I bought an angle grinder from Harbor Frieght and lasted 10 minutes then broke. That'* when I went back to Tool Shop.

I bought my first impact socket today. This'll help me make quick work of tires. Thought about buying a complete set, but I don't need more than this right now.

Snagged my girlfriend'* Sears discount card to save a buck and change.

Good deal. I personally prefer deep sockets for lugs.

while 3/4" is close..it'll be a little loose on your 19mm lug nuts. Over time you'll notice the edges may round a bit. If that happens..then you can get new lug nuts.

Dan..nice drill, a bit big isn't it? Looks overall very similar to Milwaukee, any idea if they are made by the same parent company?

Darn you guys and your tools. I picked up a Rotozip RZ2000 a little while back with a lot of attachments. Got the flex shaft (no more killing dremels for me), circle cutter (made easy work of installing some recessed lighting) and the wrong straight edge attachment. The other night got a pen sized power tester. The type that tells you if the wire is live w/o actually touching anything.

Nice tool Bill and so versatile. I remember trying to introduce it to the forum as a newb and getting beat down by the old guard "Dremel" crew. And it'* something you'll find handy outside of the garage as well.
