ok...will do. it looks like there won't be much left. but it could still make brackets or braces ...so it will live to serve another purpose.

2 months for 15. Thats not too bad. I have had a chicago one from there for a few years now. I use it all the time. Only problem I had was the brushes. Flipped them over and its still going. I have new brushes ready when these crap out.

closing the cab off way better. capping the top side rails with the 2x2 and tieing it all together.
