As a general warning: If you do decide to swallow a USB borescope camera, once it comes out the other end, do not attempt to forcefully remove it. Allow the entire length of the cable to pass naturally.

This advice also applies to balloon strings swallowed by cats. In that case, the string should be trimmed at regular intervals, to prevent the cat (or other cats) from attempting to play with it, causing further harm.

My cat loves eating ribbons. I hate the results.

Do NOT buy these HF scissors (Multipurpose Shears
Item#36900) to cut the ribbon. Though they may cut pennies they suck at normal scissor cutting materials.

The nice black stainless scissors are awesome in every way. EXCEPT, my thumb manages to get stuck in the grip every time somehow.

That is true of nearly every pair of EMT shears made ever.
The trick is to cut as close as possible to the hinge and squeeze slowly.

I love the free scissors that HF gives out. I get those as often as I can over everything else they give out for free.

I always break those when trying to cut like cardboard or dropping them or looking at them wrong.

6 in. 5.7 Amp Heavy Duty Dual Action Variable Speed Polisher

Just picked up one of these over the weekend. Not really the best shape, and I don't know why the on/off is on the side rather than the top. But it's a great machine.

I ended up getting a Dewalt DW317K. It doesn't automatically blow dust out of the cutting path like the nicer saws but it is cheap and well made.

Anybody have the smallest steel service cart. $40 I think?

I need a roll around table for projects.

I do not, but I have the big steel cart and love it.
It's only a few bucks more with a coupon, and the extra room is well worth it.
Check the box for damage carefully. I had to spend a bit of time straightening mine out during assembly.

We had one of them in the shop at school and it was pretty damn ok. Until someone got the great idea to try and make it an off road cart and put the ******* 8" pneumatic tire casters on it and then it was tippy as hell.

The 30x16? I have one under my toolbox out in the garage. Not the steadiest, but of course mine is pretty top heavy with the large Sears chest on top of it. Worth the cost if you get it on sale for around $30. Not worth $40 list price.

Yes you can print the coupons from that site. You can only get one free item per day.
