I am sure that Kev has other 'life style' reasons and he has previously posted that his house is high and dry; but I am 'stirring' him here as in July some nearby beach properties were significantly hit by huge storm surges.

@Untidy Shop That's very tragic, but the face of the future I'm afraid. I'm in an exposed area but on slightly higher ground so may not be directly impacted, but what help is that if the infrastructure get destroyed.. Anyway portable is the way to go..

Placed my order with Toolnut/Festoolproducts for HKC 55, extra blades, 670 rail, bags, and Duo.  Can't wait...could have used it Friday.  I had to cut 1/8" off 1/4" acrylic pane with mail slot...used my cordless Supercut but the HKC would have been quicker and easier...especially since I was working outdoors in 98 feel PA sunshine.

@Kev @Untidy Shop

Looks like he's got until the Year 2100 to sell up and run like heck according to that map.

Are you going rural Kev. There are bugger all bigger properties here in Western Sydney, they are all lick and stick houses here, all 1m apart. That's our plan......

@Grakat the ultimate plan is to get out of Sydney .. heading north, but really not sure how far. Once we're sold we're going to live with most of our stuff in storage and use our free time to hunt. Byron and Noosa hinterlands look promising, though there's a few places on the central coast that look nice too. We toyed with the idea of going south .. between Berry and Narooma .. but my wife and I like the warmth. I'd ideally like a minimum of 2 good hectares, but more "buffer" would be nice as long as it doesn't require maintenance.

Where I am is about 10m above sea level, so I've probably got till 2200.

@Kev

Our plan B is just north of Newcastle at Clarence Town, and we have 2.5 acres on which we will build one day. About 1hr to Newie and the beach, 35 minutes to Raymond Terrace.

Good luck with your plan.

I'm planning on using it to join up an ash countertop I've been working on but I spent the morning building a bunch of face frames for cabinets and it's really been a joy to use. I anticipated a huge learning curve but that doesn't seem to be the case.

picked up my Sort 4/Sys 3 3-drawer unit to sit under a SYS-MFT on my Sys-roll to put all the clamps and qwas dogs, etc in.  And my bride let "us" buy a CXS to go with the C12 I have.  When she played with it at a roadshow, she really liked it.

Had to remodel my lady's bathroom and carefully remove a huge mirror. I got a second of the Gecko suction cup thingy (with the rail attachment package). Worked a treat. Now what to do with with a massive mirror....

Purchased an HKC that I will be using to cut cement board for a bathroom remodel...ya I know it's a shame to scratch the saw sole plate, but really, these tools are made to be used and not just parked or used as trailer queens. I have the CMT diamond blade and will break out the grouping tomorrow...just waiting for those new batteries to fully charge. [cool]

When they announced over the summer that the MFS routing template was being discontinued in the United States i took advantage of the discount to get some of the extension sizes I didn't already have. I held off on the 2000 though, not having an immediate application for them. But when they finally went out of stock i had a bit of an irrational freakout and suddenly became convinced that i should have hopped on them while i had the chance. After someone mentioned it on the FOG, though, i discovered i could get them for even cheaper -- international freight included -- from England.  Apparently i wasnt the only person with that bright idea, as the company informed me after a week that they were on back order. I had almost forgotten about them, but look whst was waiting on the doorstep when i got home.

A thing of beauty Edward...you asked me what I was going to use my 2000's for, and I replied I didn't know, and I still don't. However, let's see who uses theirs first, it could be an education and fun for both of us. [big grin]

I know about that irrational thought process,  [smile] , if you purchase under duress and never use the item, it's irrational. If you purchase under duress and use & fall in love with the item, it then becomes divine intervention...

Got the "new" T18 - hooray for a sturdy belt clip. I tweaked my old one but the tweak is only workable on the "wrong side" of the drill, so now I can clip one on either side going up a ladder: [cool]



Looking forward to the release of the 3,1Ah Airstream battery, looks slim enough:

Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.
