I just got the following notice from Amazon re. my order of four sets of clamps:

"We're writing to inform you that your order has been canceled. We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. In most cases, you pay for items when we ship them to you, so you won't be charged for items that are canceled."

I called Amazon and they were zero help!

I don't know about about the rest of you, but in my lifetime there has NEVER been a darn thing on sale when I have the money to buy the stuff I need. It always waits till I'm broke. I've come to believe that if I hit the big lottery sale items would somehow become illegal.

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

I don't think this would exactly qualify as "hot buy" so maybe this post belongs more under Tool Reviews, but Rockler has the Eagle 1-gal Silent Compressor on sale for $119.99, off from $150. Nice price on a nice tool. If you trim or do handyman type work, it's a dream for the small quick stuff when even your 2 to 4 gallon portable feels too burdensome. The thing weighs 25 lbs but more importantly has a dB rating of 44! It is so quiet you could shoot brads at night inside a thin-walled apartment and never get a single complaint from your neighbors. I don't know the duty cycle, but it's 3/4 HP, 1 [email protected] PSI and more capable than what you'd expect of a compressor with such a tiny footprint. Now maybe the math doesn't add up, but pressed to take a guess, I'd say I get off about 10 to 12 brads before it cycles, or 6 or 7 shots with the finish gun. Though quite obviously not intended to run a framing gun, it's robust enough to use in a pinch. I had to do some fire blocking today and didn't feel like dragging my normal trim compressor from the car. I recall being able to properly sink three, maybe four 16's before it cycled. The thing is, it's so quiet you don't even really notice when it's refilling. That may not be a good thing for the life expectancy of the tool, but at $120, if you can get say two hassle free years out of it, how much more's to be expected? Your mileage may vary, but in my book this is a pretty good value if you're in the market for a truly portable whisper quiet compressor.

I can say build quality is respectable, with a solid feeling frame and somewhat protective control panel unlike similar portables such as the Senco 1-gallon (which is more expensive and only .5 HP), where the gauges are completely exposed. Haven't had this little guy long, so only time will tell how well it holds up. But so far I'm impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend giving it a shot while still on sale.

Grizzly 14" band saw

been keeping an eye out for a used 14 bandsaw - good ones asking price roughly $400.

Grizzly has the 14" G0555(letterslettersletters) on sale up to near 12/25 for $555+shipping
on their site and on eBay

Amazon has it at $1,197 free ship. I can do math, I can ever spell math . . .

it's 1 hp, two speed. I'm not big into resawing - just general light use in a hobby shop.

seems like a decent deal - any comments to the Grizzly line of bandsaws?
