Nice lil rockbreaker, it's like the "Chihuahua" of rockbreakers.
Should be nicely light and maneuverable to operate. :)

Certainly not a full sized jackhammer but better than a toy. I was surprised how heavy it is, 50lbs. It chewed through concrete just fine until I hit a large piece of pink quartz. What kind of psychopath put s big piece of pink quartz in concrete?

(probably the same psycho who put blocks of cedar and beef rib bones in there)

Beef. Yes, let's just say they are beef rib bones.

On a completely and totally unrelated note, did you ever manage to handle the situation with the homeless fella sleeping on the side of your house?
I pre-fabbed some elevated cedar planters and installed them in 20 minutes while he was out on a meth run. Which I now call my bumgarden.

He moved to an empty lot next to the library for a few years after that but hasn't been seen recently.

And I am totally putting as many bones as I can find back in the hole before the concrete. Seems like a fun game for a future someone.

I haven't needed any new tools of late, it's good.
I can't get my rear wheel undone on my Norco with a multi tool so I ordered an empty tool roll and I'll get a Ratchet rocket and a 6mm L key.

If it's too big for the hydration pack I'll use it at work, it would be handy.

Non vegan friendly PARAT man bag, tungsten grinder and flex shaft for my multi tool.
Last purchase before I finish up at work, will let me do some carving and more welding practice if I end up unemployed for a bit.

The tungsten grinder was a stupid purchase, a cheap Chinese one would have been a better option but I already had a Proxxon multi tool thingy.

I made a slightly oversized fork bushing insert yesterday. I should grab a chunk of stainless steel today and make a few more in a couple sizes. See how far I can go before brake rattling. I have spare bushings in case I go too far.
