Newly Discovered Cave Drawing Reveals Early Man Used Reciprocating Saws

Additional evidence suggests plumbers were overcharging customers as far back as 25,000 years ago

cave drawing

Last week’s discovery at Serra da Capivara National Park in northeast Brazil reveals that early man not only hunted and gathered but also used reciprocating saws similar to the 9 Amp Professional Variable Speed Reciprocating Saw (item #: 69066) available at Harbor Freight Tools. “I was as surprised as anyone,” offered Professor Adriano Souza, head of tool archeology at Universidade Paulista. “We were familiar with early man using primitive versions of hammers and knives but fully functional reciprocating saws? We had no idea.” A hidden cavern covered by three feet of solid rock recently became accessible due to seismic activity and that’s where the cave drawing dating back 25,000 years was found.

“The drawing clearly shows an indigenous tribesman with a reciprocating saw in his hand. He appears to be cutting some sort of reed. Reeds were commonly used in early plumbing structures such as primitive faucets,” explained Souza. “We may very well be looking at the first plumber on Earth!” Within the cavern, Souza’s team also discovered an invoice overcharging for simple services. “This one refers to an installation of a new reed leading out of a hut, likely an early sewer drain. The invoice shows payment due of 12 chickens and the skins of seven Tropidurus lizards. That’s exorbitant! A job like that shouldn’t have run more than 8 chickens and two Tropidurus lizard skins.” In an adjoining cavern, another drawing shows a tribesman waiting all day for the plumber to arrive, indicated by several depictions of the sun in varying positions in the sky.

What still puzzles Souza’s team is the power source for the reciprocating saws. “Harnessing of conventional electricity didn’t happen for millennia. My theory is that they plugged the reciprocating saws into electric eels.” Considering that Serra da Capivara National Park is situated between the river valley systems of Riacho Toca da Onca, Riacho Baixo da Lima, Riacho Bom Jesus and the Gruta do Pinga, the theory is quite plausible. “That would explain the primitive extension cords we found in the cavern as well.”

Just like its long name implies, this Hammer Drill from Harbor Freight is heavy on features. Powering up to 2,800 RPM with a 7.5 amp motor, you can drill easily through a variety of materials at lightning speed.

Yet, even though it comes packed with variable speeds and an included depth gauge, this item will only run you $29.99!

“I purchased this drill and have already used it to make about 15 holes in concrete. Just flip the switch to hammer mode and it drills through like butter with a masonry bit. I have used a non-hammer drill before to make the same holes and it’s not even comparable. Don’t even bother using a regular drill for masonry work. You can’t beat the performance to price ratio of this drill!” – by Satisfied Customer from Miami, FL

“Needed a hammer drill for installing gate hinges into a cinder block wall then install anchor’s into a concrete floor. I read the reviews on this drill and stopped by HF and purchase it. The drill is absolutely remarkable. Built like a rock, I love how it drills through four inches of concrete with a half inch drill bit with no problem. Brick and cinder block also have no chance with this drill. Recommend this drill? Yes I would.” – by trwtturbo from Garden Grove, CA

There’s nothing like a good review from Satisfied Customer or anyone else from the Customer family.

“This helmet has a quick flash response. It works just as good as any high $$$ helmet. I work with a 125AMP MIG/Flux welder and I have no problems with the flash rate. I was very hesitant on buying this one but, boy I’m glad I did. The settings are easy to control. Definitely one of my smartest purchases.” – by Big Ed’s Harley Repair from Phoenix, AZ

“I asked my wife to get this for me for Christmas last year. I just got a chance to use it. It works perfectly! The adjustments to speed and sensitivity are perfect. As a former professional welder I was amazed that something so low cost could work so good. The suspension is a bit less than desired, but for the money? This is a GREAT DEAL. So, 5 stars is valid. Thanks Harbor Feight for another great deal on a tool.” – by gliverson from Boise, ID

“Bought the 170 amp welder earlier and just as with that, I went a step up and got this helmet. Really pleased. Adjustable darkening works great. Tension adjusters allow the helmet to stay up with no fuss. On/Off in a flash allows much better results with MIG welding. Adjustable head strap is also comfortable. No problems so far so we’ll see but am very pleased for the money.” – by Mr Beam from Windham, NH

THE ADVENTURE OF HERCULES’ BROTHER…

1 In Roller Ball Bearing

We all know the legend of Hercules—half god, half human, and the strongest man on Earth. Hercules embarked on many adventures, including the “12 Labors” which were near impossible tasks meant to test his strength, endurance and courage. But lesser known is the singular adventure of Hercules’ kid brother, Doofus…

Doofus worked for the Ancient Greece Post Office delivering scrolls and parcels to his fellow countrymen. His life was pretty ordinary. While his brother was busy slaying the Nemean Lion, Doofus was busy slaying a gyro with steak fries. Such was the life of Doofus. All that changed one day while making a delivery to the Parthenon. He was suddenly confronted by the god Carpenterus in the form of a 2 x 4. “Doofus!” said the deified wooden post, “You must travel to Seriphos Island—there you will find a piece of furniture, a golden buffet, that needs to be returned to Athens. I must warn you that your journey will be fraught with peril. On the island lives four Cyclopes—foul, one-eyed giants who like to eat human flesh. Also, the buffet itself is quite heavy. Not even your brother Hercules could lift it! No pressure but if you fail in this task, Greece’s populous will be turned into Erymanthian rock slugs. Good luck and Zeus-speed.”

Doofus set sail right away and traveled through tumultuous seas for the better part of a month before arriving at Seriphos. The oldest of the Cyclopes saw Doofus’ ship coming from a mile away, hence the phrase “good eye” was coined for someone with sharp vision. When Doofus landed on the island, he was immediately greeted by the uniocular beasts. “Foolish mortal!” they bellowed in unison, “we are going to eat you!” Doofus had only a pocket knife as well as a handful of peanuts—the latter of which he offered to the creatures. Not wishing to be impolite before devouring this measly human, the one-eyed giants ate the peanuts. It is well documented in Greek mythology that Cyclopes have terrible nut allergies. Having not read their own mythology and thus lacking epinephrine pens, they dropped dead on the spot. Phew! Doofus searched the island and discovered the golden buffet, which was made of some sort of immortal substance colored gold but not actually gold itself—“laminate” they called it and it was heavy beyond belief! If only the buffet had wheels or something. An idea hit Doofus like a flash and he pulled out his pocket knife.

He used the eyes of the Cyclopes like roller ball bearings and placed one each under the corners of the buffet. Moving it then became a breeze! Doofus returned to the mainland with the buffet, prevented Greek citizens from being turned into slugs and was promoted to Ancient Greece Post Office Master General. At least that’s how mythology tells the tale. But nothing is mythological about the benefits of the 1″ Roller Ball Bearing (item #: 67060) from Harbor Freight Tools! The roller ball bearing is an essential component to building your own mobile base and rolling work table. The bearing is multidirectional for optimal maneuverability once in use. This handy roller ball bearing is just what you need for constructing moveable surfaces in the home, garage or professional workshop!

Mortals should visit one of Harbor Freight’s peril-free 500+ stores nationwide to get the 1″ Roller Ball Bearing. Please wear tunics and sandals in the stores and no three-headed dogs allowed.

And you’ll certainly be able to fit a shocking amount of tools and equipment in this handy tool tote. Aside from a huge central pocket for bigger power tools, you also get 13 outside pockets for placing hand tools or smaller accessories until you need them.  Until you do though, they’ll stay safe and protected by the durable polyester construction and a tough rubber bottom. That means the tote takes a beating while ensuring that your tools don’t! And neither does your tool budget, for that matter.

“Get rid of your metal/plastic tool boxes. Get rid of your bucket bag. GET THIS! Way easier than a tool box, fits all my pliers and screwdrivers in outside slots with sockets inside. Has multiple straps inside for drill etc. Much easier than always opening a tool box or, even worse, one with drawers that open every time you carry it. Great price….metal handle…..think you will like it.” – by DogTag from Ft. Worth, TX

“I work professionally installing hard wood floors. I need a lot of hand tools with me on the job. Don’t like a tool box where you just throw your tools all together and then have to dig for the one you need. This is perfect, it allows you to keep your tools organized and you can find what you need fast and easy. I’ve had this tool bag for about three months now and it’s held up great. Similar tool bags cost twice as much, this one is a great value.” – by Dom from Omaha, NE

Whether you’re a casual do-it-yourselfer or a professional contractor, the 19” Tool Tote is a great way to help organize and protect your tools while also being able to take them just about anywhere!

THE NO LONGER 8-IN-1 DEVICE…

image_25364

Darn lawyers! Originally, we called this amazing new device the 8-In-1 Blower Vacuum Mulcher Paperweight Personal-Self-Defense-Weapon Anti-Yapping-Dog-Apparatus Confetti-Storm-Maker Modern-Art-Piece. We had this great ad all designed – it pictured a typical family gathering set in a typical suburban backyard—a set of divorced parents with their new spouses, step children and birth children—each member holding the new device and performing one of the eight functions. The youngest child, a preschooler, is made up like Andy Warhol and is holding up the device next to a can of Campbell’s soup. His quote bubble reads “I had a lot of dates but I decided to stay home and dye my eyebrows.” Everyone in the ad is laughing at the comment, including the social worker who’s checking in on the family.

Where was I? Oh yeah, darn lawyers! Everyone here loved the ad until it found its way to the legal department… All of a sudden, there were “issues” with five of the eight functions, and did we have the rights to include a can of Campbell’s soup in the ad and what did a child imitating Andy Warhol have to do with selling this incredible new device from Harbor Freight Tools? As if they weren’t involved enough, the lawyers also questioned whether the social worker in the ad was sending the wrong message. They secured red pens and started drawing lines through stuff. They crossed out five functions, the social worker and all the family members including the mini-Warhol. What we were left with was a great product with three solid functions—the 3-In-1 Electric Blower Vacuum Mulcher (item #: 62337).

With its three legally approved functions, this baby is awesome! The efficient leaf blower converts to a vacuum with the flip of a switch. In vacuum mode, you can capture leaves, shred and bag them for mulch. Features include two speed settings for big or small jobs, a 12:1 mulch ratio and a lightweight balanced design. Accessories include a blower tube, mulcher tubes, concentrator nozzle and collection bag. Available at any one of Harbor Freight’s 500+ stores, the Portland® 3-In-1 Electric Blower Vacuum Mulcher will definitely become your go-to for yard work! And hey, if you happen to weigh down a stack of papers with it or whip up a confetti storm, not even those darn lawyers can stop you, though you will have effectively rendered your warranty null and void…
