  • Hey Bigs, sorry I didn't see your message sooner. You gotta remember that I'm computer challenged. Dolmer has been around for a long while, about as long as Stihl. They did get bought by Makita a few years back. I've got a 115 that still chews up firewood pretty steady, although I like my Pioneers and Stihls.
    Hey Charlie, sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you I haven't checked for a message and then I just plumb forgot! I live in house springs.
    I have actually never boated on the Mississippi. I'm actually scared to death of it! I have a lot of friends who say its a good time so I am anxious to try it out. Looks like there are a lot of sand bars, and marinas with bars on them and places to party and whatnot. Usually we boat at Kinkaid. We run the kaskaskia a few times a year, and then tablerock a few times a year. Talk to you soon.
    happy birthday
    BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops
    to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit
    into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of
    the outside edge.

    TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of
    everything you forgot to disconnect.




    UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of
    cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly
    well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic
    bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic
    parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in
    use.

    darn-IT TOOL: Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage
    while yelling 'darn-IT' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most
    often, the next tool that you will need.
    HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Us ed for lowering an automobile to the ground
    after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle
    firmly under the bumper.

    BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops
    to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit
    into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of
    the outside edge.

    TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of
    everything you forgot to disconnect.

    PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under
    lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil
    on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out
    Phillips screw heads.

    STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes
    used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and
    butchering your palms.
    I think we all can relate to this
    TOOLS EXPLAINED

    DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching
    flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the
    chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the
    freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner
    where nothing could get to it.

    WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere
    under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints
    and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you
    to say, 'Oh SH-- '

    ELECTRIC HAND DRILL: Normally used for spinning pop rivets in their
    holes until you die of old age.

    SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.

    PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation
    of blood-blisters.

    BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor
    touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.
