    Christmas just came early for me. As you all know I build stuff out of popsicle sticks. I am a member of Ryobi Nation woodworking forum and I just won 500.00 in free tools. YAY......

    Well Stuart, thanks you but here is the deal. I cant order my pickups and pots until after Christmas "12 grandkids" but I had to throw this together for a grand prize contest that pays 2,500.00 in free tools. The deadline for entry is the 30th of this month. Entries are automatic when you post a project but I needed to get pics and post them. She is getting a set of SD 1/4 pound pups and CTS pots. Im hoping to catch a after Christmas sale.

    You got all that for $500???

    Any 2 of those items here would more than soak up that money. I’m wanting a reciprocating saw and with battery & charger that alone is about $320. The sell these things as “Skins” these days, tool + battery+ charger. Bloody big con IMO marketing that way and costs more in the long run as one battery isn’t enough for multiple tools. Also holds you to the one brand which mightn’t suit.

    Grrrrr!

    I'm not really a huge fan of battery powered tools and yes I am happy with what I chose, very inexpensive here. That is a crazy price for a reciprocating saw. Thank goodness its a overkill for my sticks. lol
