Thought I'd share a couple of things that have been amazing for my refit this spring. I've been working with boats for a while but somehow missed this stuff.
1) Pastry bags for epoxy. I saw this on offcenterharbor.com (which itself has been pretty great for a few things). Mix thickened epoxy, stuff it into the bag, cut the tip off and you can squeeze and control it very easily. If you cut the tip small, you can jam it in holes and get the epoxy pretty deep. Much cheaper and easier than syringes. Only issue is that I can feel it heating up in my hand, I could see cooking a whole batch real quick if it were warmer but so far no issues. 8 cents a bag, not too bad.
2) Had some CVS gloves that worked ok but acetone disintegrated them. These are what we use at work (hospital). I haven't tried them against acetone, but I got PB blaster all over them and none of it got onto my hands. I think they will be a lot better. Plus the target/CVS gloves are "one size fits most" which really means, fits most women. These are a bit more expensive but much better.
3) These trauma shears are awesome. I've bought many pairs for work and when they get nastied up I move them onto my tool bag. They are coated in flouride which supposedly makes tape not stick to them. I haven't really found that to be an issue at work but I notice that they are really easy to clean and even if they get munged up with epoxy you can still break them loose. They cut glass really well. This brand is way, way better than any other brand I've seen/tried. I usually order 2-3 pairs at a time. They are just great scissors in general.
4) Ryobi cordless tools have been pretty great. I got a good deal on a drill/sawzall set on slickdeals.net. The drill chuck sorta sucks. Otherwise, they've been awesome. The sawzall is great. I've had really great luck with the circular saw too. It definitely eats the batteries, but it's great not to have to use a cord. It's cut through lots of 3/4 inch plywood without fail. The angle grinder is pretty handy (I ended up getting a corded version though because that one really does chew up batteries).
They have a 12v charger which I bought but haven't really tried yet.
The best thing so far though is the impact driver. I'd never used one before. I had some bad luck with stainless bolts this spring, stripping out the heads and then wasting time drilling them out. The impact driver is pretty amazing, even with the ? of wrong size phillips bit, it will back out almost anything. A set of vice grips on the nut makes getting bolts out a one person job. Pretty amazing.
That's all I got. Thought it might make a worthwhile thread if people had other suggestions.
