    I wouldn't try a sharp blade, one goof and you are digging into the paint. Use a heat gun to remove the vinyl, then get a rubber wheel for your drill to remove the adhesive. ...

    Sorry Kev for your experience. That is a long time to carry a grudge. I generally wouldn't buy Craftsman corded or battery hand tools, but I have certainly bought my share of Craftsman hand tools. ...

    Don't see any sale pricing here, paid $549. The tank drain wasn't a big deal as I replaced the drain with a 1/4" street ell, 6" of 1/4" pipe and a ball valve. NO other obvious leaks, although I...

    Yesterday I slipped a knife scraper blade in one to remove a large sticker from my new compressor. Been working on it for 5 minutes with WD40 and a credit card to get 1/3 of it off. The multi-tool...

    And here is my old compressor. I really liked it except it only cycled 80-100 psi, so seldom did I actually have 100 psi to run a rattle gun. As you can see in the second photo, I was able to get...
