Could be a side business if it wasn't such a well kept secret Dave. I saw this thread and figured I would throw it out there. Besides, if I'm not tiling pools I'm home working on the bamboo farm. Between the two I stay pretty busy.

Sweet!

I thought moving appliances around on a pair of UHMW skids was slick...but that’s stone-age compared to that air sled. Is that yours, or is that in your possession temporarily?

It is mine. I have had this one for about 10 years still works like day I bought it. I was fortunate enough to have worked for a guy that had one, otherwise I don't think I would even know they existed. I think this is one of those things that when you buy it and use it you think man I wish I would have gotten this years ago

It is the best thing I ever bought. Was able to move a 5' Wolf Range/Cooktop like it was a feather. G/C couldn't believe it. He went out the next day and bought one.

I tried to get by with out one when I first went out on my own (they are pricey) using a appliance dolly but that was short lived. I dented a engineered hardwood floor I had just installed and scratched a laminate floor, the customer had some blame on that one but I still had to fix it. The time i spent fixing them was justification enough to buy one. But is really funny when the customer offers to help you move stuff cause you are by yourself, they always give me the same look of suspicion like no way you are going to get that by yourself. Then you break it out and float a subzero across the kitchen.

I was looking for a bigger framing or square in general and I found this 345 by CH Hanson, pretty neat it folds up to a 1 1/2 straight edge for easy storage

I will be a mud man if it kills me Justin. I had a picture of the triangle laying on the floor but the site wouldn't let me upload it, weird because I took the pictures back to back. I found that one in the phone and it let that one upload

I like drawing lines on the ceiling that are square then set my sticks parallel to those lines.

I can see that large square coming in handy.

From time to time I splash a little from the wash bucket. Okay, a lot of the time. In the past I sometimes got water spots that nothing could get out. From soap & water, to Windex to denatured alcohol to Blaze to crud cutter & more with a white scrubby pad- nothing could remove these.

But now I use Texspar Plus (as recommended by Bostik for cleanup of QuartzLock/TruColor), and it cleans up anything. Just used it on water splashes that were thought to be etched permanently - gone. Works on Fusion Pro clean up as well.

Its a powder that you toss on a damp tile, hit it with the white pad, rinse like 1 time, and your done. Not like Blaze that you need to rinse repeatedly and towel off, then buff with paper towels. Its simple, fast and your on to your next mess.

New(er) tool I love.

Hard to tell from the picture but itís actually a pretty large tool. Itís made to remove trim and does a great job of doing that without wrecking the wall, but I also use it for chipping off tiles like when you want to preserve the drywall under the bullnose tile perimeter of a shower for instance, so thereís less drywall work to do. Beat it with a hammer and it just clips them off with no effort whatsoever. The blade is sharp to begin with and after year of pounding both tile and wood trim, itís still pretty doggone sharp. Itís tough and basically a good all-around tool. At 30 bucks I thought thatís a lot to spend but now I wish I wouldíve had it 15 years ago. Give it a thought

I bought one of those not to long ago. I was reluctant cause it looked like it was a cheap turd in the pictures on the net, but I happened apon it at home depot and it is pretty stout. I was taught to use a 6in putty knife and a pry bar
