Wasn't long ago ,a 12 pack of Pepsi was $3+, then $4+, yesterday was $5.20.
Somebody is reading your posts.....Bolt Carrier groups for AR15 rifles. Complete uppers are difficult to find and expensive when you do find them
The LGS had uppers built in-house for $399 or $499 with the BCG. I want an 18 or 20-inch barrel and all they had was 10 or 16" and I wasn't impressed with the quality so I passed.
We have a toaster oven, and due to my slow construction pace on the house I am building we do not have a microwave unless we use the one in the trailer. We use the toaster oven for Toast, for warming left overs, for cooking frozen premade pizzas, and many other things. Definitely worth the price compared to an actual toaster.Toaster ovens are making a come back.
Buy the mill now while still available - maybe.Today I read this thread for the first time, and Thank You to everyone. We are grabbing a 5 pound box of chlorine tabs for our small above ground pool because you all taught us of the lack of production of chlorine tabs. We were already aware of the price of lumber being almost 5 times what it was a year or so ago, and we already knew that gas and oil prices about doubled since December. We have seen meat prices rise the past 4 or 5 months, and we are keeping an eye on other things we use on a regular basis. Within the next week or so I will fill the gas cans and add the necessary fuel preserver to each can. We already stocked up on meat and our chickens, ducks and turkeys are providing us with over 2 dozen eggs a day. We are putting our broody hens to work hatching the duck and turkey eggs. (we don't have a rooster because they are too annoying so the hens can hatch the other eggs)
I work part time at home depot again, now that they stopped the stupid mask mandate, and the price of lumber is STUPID. I am almost done building my house but as soon as final inspection is done I have no plans to buy building materials until they return from astronomical orbit. If the prices are still high later this year I will buy a DIY lumber mill and make my own lumber from trees I cut in the hills. The big parts will be milled into lumber and the small parts will be firewood.
The last 18 months have been insanity, and unfortunately I do not see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Saw a blurb about personal sawmills being the most googled item in 2020 . I don't have the $$$$$ to buy one like I'd want so I started collecting pieces years ago. It's about time to assemble those pieces finally. Lots of people build their own!It may be a few months before I have the cash, but ASAP.
My husband and I are in the middle of building a home, too, and we definitely looked at this option. (It's been a wish-list item for years, but it would be a justified purchase now.) Problem is, most companies are taking orders for 2022 or 2023, with no price guarantee - and the prices have already gone up a lot. Originally I wasn't interested in the Harbor Freight one that @Neb posted. Now I would jump at it, if only we could find it in stock somewhere....If the prices are still high later this year I will buy a DIY lumber mill and make my own lumber from trees I cut in the hills.
Thankfully, we have a lot of land here and almost all of it is in various stages of growth. 25% of it gets logged off about every 5 years. Just old growth. Last bid was $80,000. That was up from a previous bid months ago at $60,000.I want landscape timbers,but none to be found . Lots of people on hold with building homes, windows take forever to get, this is when it would be great to own lots of wooded land, cut your own timber.
