Default WTB: Tools and Chemicals (Huntsville, AL area)

Ok, first post on Van's Airforce. Let's get this thing started

I recently decided to build an RV-14a and have the practice projects en-route. I have the basic tools I need for the practice projects, but still need the following list of tools for the full aircraft build. As I am not starting the airplane until after I move this summer, I plan to keep an eye out for good deals from now until then. I am also looking to buy extra chemicals for metal prep and painting as I want to practice over the next few months and don't want to pay the hazmat shipping fees. Feel free to PM anything you may want to sell that is on the list. I don't mind driving to meet, but the distance has to correlate to the savings of buying used as opposed to shipping new to the house.

(yes, I know that many additional tools that I need aren't listed. As mentioned, I already have many of the basics)

Nova 4000 rpm drill
