Road Trip! And More

Down to Tampa & St. Pete today with my friend S NotonLJ to pick up a pickup load of tools. Only one of the tools is for S, though it possesses the heaviest base. Only one of the tools is for me, though it is the largest and most top-heavy. Also packed up a gas-fired forge and a mill for another smithing friend of S', and a small box of miscellaneous for resale.

Been thinking hard about getting a compressor, price for the size I'd like to get (new) on the order of $500 - $600 US and so I'd been shopping for a smaller size. The one picked up today, for me, is the size I'd like to get, and after the trip petrol, and a 12-pack of beer, will run me a grand total of $250 US. I can has compressed air! Quite handy, actually.

I can also has tired, now. Almost dinner time.
