Last week I blew up the motor on my 15 year old flat plate compactor and today my 35+ year old electric jackhammer went terminal. I guess i am just too hard on my tools. Does this happen in threes? :eek:

Only 35 years old and worn out already? Maybe you are hard on it... aren't jackhammers meant to be treated gently? ;)

Sucks they went at the same time, but you did well with those 2 items. You got your money out of them.

Don't get to feeling too comfortable. There's always a skeleton in the closet somewhere, just waiting to jump your bones.
