They're talking about SAMEDIA 💎in the last issue of DIY magazine (april 19). Proud to be quoted alongside with our great south african retailer, VERMONT SALES 🙌 #diamondtools #samedia #madeingermany #madeingermany🇩🇪 #faster stronger #safer #dontbuycheaptools #youdeservethebest #diamondblades #diamondcorebits #diamondcupwheels #vermontsalespty #southafrica #construction
Well...sh*t.  Pretty much sums up how the week has been so far.  Don’t buy cheap clamps folks.  #woodworking #woodworker #furnituremaker #handtools #powertools #clamps #wmryallwoodworks #smallshop #oops #broken #cheapcrap #dontbuycheaptools
Freaking A! Pulling my engine in my Toyota with my Harbor Freight engine hoist, finally get it freed and the engine mounts off and the hoist stops working. Don't want to go down and break anything and can't go up. Hmm. Time to find a chain hoist and get this out! #harborfreight #harborfreightbroken #dontbuycheaptools #shouldhaveboughtaniceone #buyersregret #freakinga #toyotapickup
#dontbuycheaptools These are good. I learned my lesson
That’s what I get for buying an $8 set of assorted countersink bits. First time using that one and SNAP! At least it was on a shop project and not for a client😅. . . Yeah it’s Monday but all that means is it’s another day to learn and accomplish something. I work pretty much 7 days a week, give or take a day here and there, and it’s taught me that everyday is essentially the same just with a new title page. It’s your job to come up with what that title will be , “ughhh Monday?” Or “hell yeah it’s Monday! Let’s get after it!” I could blame Monday for this broken bit but instead I take it as a lesson learned and move on! Monday’s just about over so for all y’all who woke up dreading Monday get ready to kick ass Tuesday and the rest of the week! . . #woodworking #mondaymotivation #shithappens #mindsetiseverything #dontbuycheaptools #learningeveryday
I bought the cheap version of these bits for a new project. “Standard” bits and filing were just taking too long, and made lopsided circles in my steel. These made really good and accurate circles, but are kind of terrible at getting started. #dontbuycheaptools #steel
That moment when you realize that you can handsaw straighter than your jigsaw.  #myjigsawsucks #dontbuycheaptools #dontplaceyourtripodonyourworkpiece
I had a chance to jump in the shop for about an hour after class today and get some work done on the fly box. Unfortunately I bout the wrong hinges and so I didn’t get everything I wanted completed. I should have invested in a nicer gouge rather than the 30 piece set for $27 on amazon🤦🏻‍♂️. You live and learn right?! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #woodworking #dontbuycheaptools #flyfishing #flybox #sapele #sapelewood #spaltedwood #spaltedpalletwood #wood #rva #rvawoodworking #vaflyfishing #flyboxbuild #diy #maker #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #tinyshop #getitwhileyoucan #workneverstops

When fitting a wing stay turns into a drama, thanks to a broken tap. Thankfully all sorted without too much hassle. #dontbuycheaptools . . . #gsmexocet #exocet #mevexocet #mx5 #kitcar
This is what we call a lesson learned.  Been thrashing on this car on my free days for about a month now, had an episode where the @northern_tool transmission jack came apart on me and dumped the transmission over on its side from about 2 feet up. Rather than continuing to bolt it up behind a ridiculously torquey big block Olds, I shouldhave dropped it and made sure that hairline I thought I saw was ok... #now I’m a few muffler hangers from putting her on the road and I noticed this.  #dontbuycheaptools #upgradetime #damnitbobby
I ran today!  Only because someone said one of our buildings was on fire. Turns out it was the carpenters equipment trailer that housed their compressor. Second compressor they've had catch on fire in a year.  #fire #fireatwork #trailer #tools #dontbuycheaptools #harborfreight #firedepartment #halfdayforsomeone
Don't buy cheap tools.  #dontbuycheaptools

#fuck @pepboysauto impact tools!!! I now have a six inch @kobalt_tools extension I can't use because an adaptor sheared off with a breaker bar today. Before that you can see what the 18mm did on my impact gun, had to finish that job with my @craftsman_tools_collection really sad that every time I need to use something out of that case it breaks. No more, now they are #shittothrow lesson learned #dontbuycheaptools #onlyusedonce #worthless #wonderwhatscrappriceis

This is going to be a long, frustrating job. A thirty year old cotter pin just took out my needle nose pliers. #monstertruckproblems #dontbuycheaptools #nevereasy #goodthingihave14beersleft #countrylife
That moment when #homedepot has #fein multimasters marked half off. It was on clearance, so I saved money, right? #tools #ideserveit #newtools #germanbuilt #dontbuycheaptools
Harbor freight wants to compete with snap on haha #dontbuycheaptools # quality  #snapon
My dad has been working at home last week-end... How the hell can THIS happen? #funny #nodadiwontlendyoumytools #neverever #howisitevenpossible  #dontbuycheaptools  #brokentools  #fuckedup
Just look the other way and drive on by. Too late, cost me $20. #dontbuycheaptools
#dontbuycheaptools  Doing some pipe threading on the hangers of an interior light, needed a new threader, should have driven the extra hour into town and bought #ridgid not #princessauto special. Not even one thread cut and this happens.
Things don't always go as planned. Had a malfunction with my tile saw today so ended up just painting the ceiling. Walls still need to be sanded again, but then they are ready for paint too! Back at tile again tomorrow with new tile saw #tilesawproblem #dontbuycheaptools #glidden #pinktowhiteceilingpaint #baltimore #onestepcloser #baltimorerenovation
@sophiasprague_12  My 12year old daughter wanted to paint her bathroom. I said ok but we are going to do it together. The drywall job was horrendous! She's getting a good lesson in prep work. We are taking off paint runs and rough repairs before doing any patch work. She's never sanded with an electric before so I started her on the Porter Cable so she wouldn't be totally spoiled by the #mirka #deros . Once she started using it she was a LOT happier😃  It makes quick work of wall prep so you can get to the repairs. Right away. It is also dust free when paired with a good dust extractor😍😍😍  The @milwaukeetool m18 LED HP Floodlight is amazing at lighting up a whole room and casts a great shadow when shined across a rough surface. 😎It's nearly impossible to miss the imperfections with it.  #childlabor #children #teachyourchildren #teachthemyoung #teachthemwhiletheyareyoung #powertools #sander #painting #painter #paint #drywall #repairs #milwaukee #milwaukeetools #milwaukeem18 #dontbuycheaptools
This is how my day is going. Splitting flairs. #hvac #refrigeration #dontbuycheaptools
Laughable man! #shouldaknownbetter #dontbuycheaptools 👉👌
In all my years of swinging a hammer, I've never straight up just broke one. I'm usually willing to drop a few bucks on a quality piece, but I didn't this time. Your hand tools need work #dewalt. #stepyourgameup #whyyoutrynakillme #dontbuycheaptools #mybadididntknow #broken #hammertime #guessididntneedthat #fuckitilljustbedonefortheday
