HF DC - 21 replies

I know the 2Hp is on sale right now for $139.00 and there is a 20% off coupon in Wood mag. Don’t know whether they will take it also on the DC. Everyone raves about the 2HP HF DC but does anyone have any experience with their 3HP one? Is it worth the extra bucks?

As I was checking out to see what everyone was up to, I looked at Greedo’s shop cabinets, very nice work. In one of his photos, I noticed all the plastic tool cases. They sure do collect, what do you do with yours, store your tools, pitch them, or use them some other way?
