Sometimes it’s hard to pass up a good deal.

I tend to buy new tools for the warranty unless the deal is too good to pass up on.
In this case I’d probably have a look at the fuji, and if during a spray test it works fine, go for that one.

I’d still be leaning towards the 5500 though.

I bought the Earlex 5500 today, just didn’t trust the craigslist list seller, plus I will get a warranty.Tool review to fallow.

Have your say...
