Band saw

Table saw

Heavy Sander

Grinder

Drill press

Pneumatic drill

Drill bits / Paddle bits

C clamps & vice grips

And a partridge in a pear tree.

 

Seriously, that sounds like one heck of an undertaking. Good luck to you.

I am sure you can get the basic stuff at Ace Hardware - SM or J Mall.

There is also a large hardware close to the foot of the bridge on Mactan, which carry many of the smaller items and hardware.

I walked through it last night to see what it carries. I will need a good power plant drive a compressor and an underwater welding rig. I want to use only pneumatic drills and ratchets at just above waterline. This is for safety reasons. The joists and deck tops will need to have quality stainless steel bolting/ braces and screws. Needed for the connection of joist, braces, and unions. their bolts and screws were much too small.for the task. I need places that do heavy hardware.

Ummm...you mention yellow pine dimensional lumber. Is there some reason it needs to be yellow pine? I have never seen any yellow pine in Cebu. Would some other type of wood work for your purposes?

I believe that is the configuration my brother-in-law wants to use.

it is sold in City hardware. and the pressure treated yellow pine will out last most all other woods on open water.conditions like a floating facility right on the water. It is also what was requested to use in the design. Edited by JamesMusslewhite

James for what its worth I noticed in the Cebu Pacific magazine this afternoon that Citi Hardware was advertising 100% US lumber products. Not sure if that helps you at all.

 

When you come to Manila if you find yourself totally lost or have something specific you need I will be glad to ask around or help if at all possible. Drop me a line and I'll give you my cell number. If nothing else you'll surely need a cold beer eventually?

I was told that there was a SEARS Tool outlet in Manila, and I hope they can at least be ordered if not carried in stock.

Never heard of a Sears outlet here, but Snap-On has a sales and showroom. They ship out of Singapore. Bought my Snap-on box in Makati of all places...

 

Snap-on Tools Singapore Pte. Ltd.,
     Philippines Branch
     4F, 2053 Edison Street
     Makati City, Philippines 1234

Tel. No.: (63/2) 843-7935
Fax. No.: (63/2) 843-7730

 

Unfortunately Snap-On doesn't make tillers I don't think - but maybe some of the other tools you need are available through them.
