today I got the new battery for my motorcycle, which meant I had to hook up the new charger I received the other day.
Its the exact same size as the original but specs out higher.

New battery meet new charger.

This charger/ maintainer is very cool, can use it on anything. I have it selected for a small motorcycle battery right now so it charges slow. 3 lights on and 3 to go. I will be hard wiring a plug to the battery for the charger.

I've been running a Tru-gel in my bike. Not sure if means anything for a street bike, but 'off roaders' say good things. Wonder if a battery that turns over a 1500cc bike would work on a 17hp Kawasaki mower engine? Either way, batteries have tripled in price since 2004...

The blade guard is designed to catch chips, its like a collection cup.

Ordered a metal cutting chop saw to go with the circ saw. I paid ups extra to have it delivered a couple days later on a friday when betty would be home. It never showed. Came home from grocery shopping on Saturday and ups left it at the side door, I have ongoing instructions for packages to be left on the back patio. Grrr. Idiot left a $400 tool out in the open.

And the saw came damaged because it was dropped on the corner! See the box. I ordered the saw from trick tools, their customer service was excellent and they had another one sent to me right away and sent a pick up label for the damaged one.

It has a pull out tray for the chips. This is a 14" carbide blade steel cutting chop saw. It cuts with less sparks and cuts cooler than a fiber disc chop saw. You can get blades for aluminum and stainles steel.

I'll do a review on this in the tool section in case eany of the metal workers out there are interested.

Well I’ve decided that I needed something for hollowing between my Trent Bosch 5/8 set and the big captured rig I got some time ago. Enter the Trent Bosch 3/4 setup— when I’d get to the limit of the 5/8, just had chatter I didn’t want to deal with & not wanting to set up other rig.
Had some credits on pay pal etc, an understanding wife (I’m blessed!!:greeting:)
Second pic is the future Mimosa vase.

Table for the drill press arrived today. MLCS have it on sale for $40 off. Figured hardware would cost me nearly as much as the sale price plus my time to build it so pulled the trigger.

Not woodworking related and didn't come in the mail actually, but I dig it just the same. Betty came home from visiting with her daughter and brought me a lava lamp, lol
