works great. just don't tell milwaukee when i warranty the weed trimmer later.
What could go wrong 😀

Oh man this video is just pure joy. What a magnificent FD Build. I was smiling as much as the guy, If not more, and I wasn’t even driving the car. Long live the Wankel!

update: apparently at target they sell either <=3ft or >=5.5ft fake trees in-store. Michaels, a "craft store" only sells pre-lit trees in-store. I'm.. very confused.

i did try that first, blew through 3 batteries and half the trimmer head of string in the first 15 ft. i've got about 50ft that needs doing.

the saw blades are free off the construction sites(too dull to cut wood anymore), and they work better

I bought a cheap set of christmas lights, also for the first time, at target + a smart plug (I actually can use it for other stuff but figure I can use it for the lights during the holidays). Of course I went to both Target/Michaels and totally forgot to get stuff to hook the lights onto on my balcony, ffs. So back to Michaels tomorrow, I guess. Trying to decide between tacks or outdoor command hooks. Anyone have recs? Basically non-permanent.

ziptie all the things.

buy the bag of 1,000, black is uv-stable, white is indoor-use only.

once you start, there's a million other uses for them.

Totally forgot about zipties, that's a solid idea.

true story, i bought the string trimmer-only model the year before they came out with the quick-loc version that offers the capability...

i believe a Red Green Show quote works best here:

"if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy!"
