  • What tool, under $5, can't you live without

    Our marketing department is doing some market research, and asked me to find out what tool, under $5, can you all not live without.

    Bob, the only thing I can think of that use a lot is a box cutter.

        That's an easy question to answer - nothing!

          Boxcutter, sandpaper, needle files, mini-drill bits, and most importantly scrollsaw blades.
          Hope you didn't want just one, hehehehe.

              A pencil with a pocket clip. If I don't have a pocket clip on the pencil it is always falling out or I set the pencil down and I can't find it when I need it.

                    I once had a small plastic "speed square" which also had a protractor built in. I don't remember where I got it. Probably the handiest "cheap" tool I ever owned. I lost that thing several years ago when I got divorced. I really miss it!!! ( There were a couple times when I missed my ex-wife...so I quit shooting at her!!)
                    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                      A nice sanding block would take a SSW&C logo pretty well.

                        Under $ 5.00, didn't know there was such a thing. Even the stencils I just bought cost more then that.

                          My spring clamps....couldn't tape up a tight stack without them. At under $1 each, they are priceless.

                              small 6" x half inch metal precision ruler. Measures down to a 64th, very acurate, and also substitutes as a scraper or glue remover. gets down into those tough to reach corners!

                                The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

                                When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
                                Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

                                Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
                                by mccrookston
                                First time posting.
                                I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
                                I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
                                Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
                                Any ideas on what might be causing...

                                That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                                I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
