The biggest thing I've bought from there was an electric threader when I needed one quick for a big gas job I landed. I don't have a need for it too often, in fact I've only used it a handful of times but it's held up and works really good so far.

I used to buy my gloves from there but a lot of them rip right away when you're putting them on so now I buy better quality ones that cost a bit more but worth it in my opinion since I use them every day.

Ok. Who wants to confess that they've purchased the snake they sell.

I haven't had the need to buy gloves by the case yet, Bought the 5mil from HF, I use them as a back up. I found some at Menards called Spider or something, their black, very rarely rip, comes in a box of 50 for $12? or so.

I thought about the power threader for a recent gas job, but ended up using my Master's hand threader, wasn't a big job by any means, and not worth the $170 or whatever they run. Still kicking myself, before my grandfather died, he offered me all of his pluming tools. I took some old school wrenches, but left the pipe stand, threaders and dies. For one I was in a rental car and at the time I thunk to myself "8 years of plumbing and I've had to thread two pipes..." I can probably still get them, but the problem is they're about 19 hours away each way.

Thickster gloves are the last brand you'll ever buy. 14 mil nitrile. I can get 2 or 3 jobs out of them.

I bought the metal cutoff chop saw for $90 with the 20% off coupon for this job. I figure if you get one job out of it it pays for itself. Damn thing keeps working great.
