Good to hear.  I love that little guy too, its so rare to have a drill on your belt that isn't pulling your pants down all day long.

Can't wait to see the movie either.

the elevator sounds like a cool project ghostfist.

i might have to buy this little drill myself, based on the feedback i am reading on the fog.
between the cxs and the new festool impact driver due to be released in 3-4 weeks i will have everything covered.
it sure is handy when you can hang them off your tool belt and not even notice the extra weight.

maybe the cxs will get special billing in the end credits!

hows that occidental belt going?
i found the australian version over here.  they are called buckaroo.
around the same price and very high quality.

loving the belt, I get a lot of comments on it. slapped on the hip buddies recently and it makes the thing that much more comfortable. I have no problem wearing it loaded for ten hours a day. The CXS chuck attachments even have their own spot. Using the right angle a lot again today and some good quick switching between a tapered/counter sink bit in the jacobs and screwing with the centrotec. people manufacturing the same thing as i werent bothering with pre drilling as it was too much hassle for them but the cxs made it a breeze and i of course didn't split everything I was screwing into like some people....

is there a link for the belt you picked up? would like to check it out

I think if you find the equivalent of Occidental Leather over there, it will be called, Oriental Leather.

Making some crazy Death Star looking sets right now. pushing the cxs to the limits today. Some major assembly that involved hundreds upon hundreds of pilot holes followed by 2" screws, about 2 batteries for the day. a 15 or 18 would have been better for this job just to speed it up but I wasn't in a rush as I had to take time with alignment of parts to be assembled.

Hi Eli. Sorry we never got to meet on set at movie world.
You realize it's all peter's fault. If he had the fog t-shirts done already. I would have recognized a fellow fogger!

Only kidding Peter!
