  • 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!

                                Rolf, Richard Boehl at QTE says the next shipment is expected soon and a new unit will be sent to me. From the comments in this thread it looks like it will be safe to plug the saw into the Festool. I wish I knew what caused the failure. If operator error, I don't want it to happen again....

                                The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
                                I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

                                As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...
