    No, just the opposite of your sage advice. Plan for the future and buy non-perishable necessities while the price is low. Stockpile stuff like the Amish, Mennonites and Mormons.
    Can't afford Costco? Get a part time job.
    Well Sir, we are talking about the same thing,

    I meant that I spent my extra money not at costco () but for raw materials, like metal?

    As a Home Shop (two car garage) person I saw the need to gather as much raw materials as I could for my retirement is all.

    It seems it might coincide with a shortage of raw materials coming which I wont consider. Why? I bought as much raw materials from 1999 to ? that I thought would carry me to the end. JR

      The welds where the base and the collar join the body of your Torin "Big Red" bottle jack look v-nice.

      I don't own any Norco bottle jacks, but when I was shopping for new/used floor jacks and other kinds of hydraulic equipment, I felt that Norco's products provided a good balance of features, durability and price. That said, the semi or fully automatic welds on your Torin look a good deal better than the apparently manual welds on bottle jacks shown at Norco's site.

      Even OTC bottle jacks don't have quite as nice weld continuity as that Torin: smaller beads, yes; but with noticable variations in width and height.

      Did you only get one?

        If it were wood, it would be called wake wood. I guess you could call it wake scrap😁

          The Torin is called Welded Bottle Jack,I thought they were all welded.I guess these telescopic jacks are common,but it’s a first for me,Strong Arm brand does not build them and are not welded.

          Only got one.
