I'm not sure yet Mark. I'm going to talk to my Dad tonight. He's actually moving to an apartment next spring, so there are a lot of tools he will have to get rid of. I really want the riding mower, but I don't think I have space in the living room

Storm. if you are looking at the M60, why not save yourself a few dollars and get the B-Stock pair for $1125 and i bet you will have a tough time trying to find where the flaw in the speaker is. Quite often it's under the front grill or on the bac

Bryan, although you say that both the RCA input and output connectors have come loose, you don't indicate if the output connector can still work. The input and output form an internal "Y", and the output leg(if not similarly damaged)serves

The SDS bits will fit in the chuck of a 1/2" drill. A good option. Good tip is to tape the bit at required depth too. Overdrilling is a waste of time, battery and can lead to anchors not setting right if you go that route. You are close to m

That there is an SDS shank for a Rotary Hammer, not really the same as a "hammer drill" although they are used for similar work. The Rotary Hammer is far better/efficient than a hammer drill as they have a different mechanism to "chip&

That's a formidable tool you have there. A real hammer drill is probably overkill for a 5/32" hole 2" deep. For what it's worth, the dumbass of the year award goes to me. Was talking to my father this afternoon and, of course, he has a p

Hi icehawk21 If it were me I'd go with option #2. Since you're already using the RCA connection using a RCA to XLR cable will not be any different. It's the cheapest solution and it'll work just like it is now. But I'd still check with Axiom as t

The shank of the bit locks into the drill chuck. Looks like this. Old concrete is a bear sometimes.

Rent one at home depot cheaply. I would not buy one for your purpose. They make a mess, so keep that in mind. Glasses are a good idea too. A real hammer drill uses bits specific for them. Hilti and Bosch are reputable brands that are available

Hmm, I suppose a 1/2" drill should have a larger gear box. I went by Canadian Tire today and did not even see a shelf space for the 1/2" hammer drill, but according to their web app there are two in the very store I was at. Go figure. Ed
