Lithium-Ion Battery and Energy-Star Charger Provide Performance
The LI4000 is powered by an efficient, rechargeable 3.6-volt lithium-ion battery that holds its charge longer than traditional batteries to deliver reliable performance job after job.
The included battery charger is Energy-Star rated, which means it meets strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy. Battery chargers with the Energy Start rating have the potential to save more than one billion kilowatt hours of energy per year and $100 million in related costs in the U.S. alone. Moreover, if every American used energy-efficient chargers, we could prevent the release of more than one million tons of greenhouse gases into our environment, which would be equivalent to taking 150,000 cars off the road each year.
Along with the Energy-Star rated battery charger and 11-piece accessory set, the LI4000 screwdriver is backed by a two-year warranty.

I can’t let you in because the owner is my sister, and she’s not at home right now. You can come back later and talk to her but she’s not going to let you in either. You’re not the first or even the second who’s asked about this. Many people have come, and the senora always tells them the same thing: NO.
There was no convincing her to let us into the apartment. She stood in the door, blocking the entrance with her body. Behind her we could see unremarkable white walls. A cross hanging. Mark had his camera out and asked if he could just shoot the number 10 on the door, but if she could maybe leave it open a bit so there would be enough light. He adjusted the camera and took one shot, checked it and thanked her. She closed the door and we were gone.
Downstairs he showed me the shot—the woman peering up at the numbers, no doubt wondering what it is in them that fascinates these people that come to bother her and her sister.
Mark was pleased: “I always get the shot. My father sold life insurance. I know how to get my foot in the door.”
Mexico City, Calle Monterrey 122, apt 10—the place where, on September 6, 1951, in a game of William Tell gone wrong, William Burroughs shot his wife Joan Vollmer in the forehead. An act of incredible suburban stupidity that became iconic in our culture.
Why had we come? Not even the first or the second?
Two years ago Mark Powell and I were having our midmorning coffee in the Cafe de Carlo on Calle Orizaba, as was our custom. Two Middle Americans living in Mexico City. We got to talking about the history of the neighborhood, of foreigners living in Mexico. Eventually it led us to Burroughs.
“You know he lived right down the street.”—I’d heard that but I didn’t know exactly where. Mark said the house William and Joan lived in had been torn down, but the apartment where he shot her was just around the corner.
We threw some coins down on the table and headed down to find the building.
A black iron door on a nondescript brick apartment building. It must have been recently built when Burroughs and Joan used to get loaded with Americans on the G.I. Bill at the Bounty Bar on the ground floor, when he headed upstairs to John Healy’s apartment to try to sell one of his guns back in 1951.
We managed to get inside and knocked on the door of the super’s apartment at the foot of the stairs.
A couple of children scrambling, a man and his wife. They knew what we’re talking about, they’d heard about the American writer that had come through, but they weren’t sure which apartment it was.
As they were closing the door to cut short our questions, a woman emerged from the back of the entranceway. She was standing close, but separated from us by an iron security gate. In her early seventies, with big eyes, the remains of a recent perm sagging on her head, wrapped in an animal print robe. She curled her hands around the twisting iron bars of the gate.
“You want to know about the writer?…and the accident?”
She whispered conspiratorially, with a tremor of paranoia in her voice. She knew about the incident. She was young when it happened. It was up in apartment 10 on the second floor, she said, gesturing with her eyes toward the stairs.
Mark and I decided to leave her alone and come back later with his camera to get a picture of the apartment.
We headed back to Carlo for another coffee, shook hands and parted ways on the corner.
A few days later Mark left for San Miguel de Allende. When he came back I was in Veracruz, then Oaxaca, then I left Mexico for Istanbul, where I set up shop in Galata, to watch seagulls jab their beaks into the necks of pigeons on the rooftops.
It was a year and a half before I was in Mexico again. A couple of days after I arrived, I got in touch with Mark—tomorrow 10:15 at Carlo, we agreed.
Nothing had changed.
Tortillas turning gold in hot oil. Otomi girls selling tiny stuffed animals for pocket change. The tiny waitress with black eyes had been replaced by another one, identical.
“While you were in Istanbul I moved to a place here around the corner,” Mark told me. “It’s actually right next to that Burroughs building. I was just thinking about it, telling myself I have to go get that shot finally—but I’ll wait until Brad’s in town. I said that to myself just a couple of days ago. I had no idea you were gonna show up. We gotta do it now.”
We agreed to meet in two days. Mark’s wife Karina served up some fried ham and plantains. Mark grabbed his camera and we headed around the corner.
We got to the door of the building as a deliveryman was coming out. We went in and headed up to find apartment 10.
“So these are the stairs Burroughs walked down right after it happened.” Mark was feeling for ghosts.
The 2nd floor landing was dark and empty, but knocking on the door marked 10 we got an answer.
And Mark got the shot.
Back down on the street, we savored the moment over aguas de pina.
“Something was completed today.” Mark suc
Wrought Iron Coffee Table - piece 2
(photo 1 of 2) $300 for the pair. We originally purchased these black, wrought iron set of tables from BF Myers, but have had them in storage ever since moving into our current home for lack of space. Like-new condition, beveled glass top, black wrought iron design. Very sturdy, pretty pieces. We originally paid $610 for the pair. Although not shown in the picture, this table includes same beveled glass type top as shown in the matching end table pic.

The Iron Brigade-an all-Western outfit famously branded as The Iron Brigade of the West-served out their enlistments entirely in the Eastern Theater. Hardy men were these soldiers from Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan, who waged war beneath their unique black Hardee Hats on many fields, from Brawner's Farm during the Second Bull Run Campaign all the way to Appomattox. In between were memorable combats at South Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Mine Run, the Overland Campaign, and the grueling fighting around Petersburg. None of these battles compared with the "four long hours" of July 1, 1863, at Gettysburg, where the Iron Brigade was all but wrecked.
Lance Herdegen's 'Those Damned Black Hats! The Iron Brigade in the Gettysburg Campaign' is the first book-length account of their remarkable experiences in Pennsylvania during that fateful summer of 1863, and winner of The Army Historical Foundation Distinguished Writing Award for Operational / Battle History, 2008. Drawing upon a wealth of sources, including dozens of previously unpublished or unused accounts, Herdegen details for the first time the exploits of the 2nd, 6th, and 7th Wisconsin, 19th Indiana, and 24th Michigan regiments during the entire campaign. On July 1, the Western troops stood line-to-line and often face-to-face with their Confederate adversaries, who later referred to them as "those damned Black Hats." With the help of other stalwart comrades, the Hoosiers, Badgers, and Wolverines shed copious amounts of blood to save the Army of the Potomac's defensive position west of town. Their heroics above Willoughby Run, along the Chambersburg Pike, and at the Railroad Cut helped define the opposing lines for the rest of the battle and, perhaps, won the battle that helped preserve the Union.
Herdegen's account is much more than a battle study. The story of the fighting at the "Bloody Railroad Cut" is well known, but the attack and defense of McPherson's Ridge, the final stand at Seminary Ridge, the occupation of Culp's Hill, and the final pursuit of the Confederate Army has never been explored in sufficient depth or with such story-telling ability. Herdegen completes the journey of the Black Hats with an account of the reconciliation at the 50th Anniversary Reunion and the Iron Brigade's place in Civil War history.
"Where has the firmness of the Iron Brigade at Gettysburg been surpassed in history?" asked Rufus Dawes of the 6th Wisconsin. Indeed, it was a fair question. The brigade marched to Gettysburg with 1,883 men in ranks and by nightfall on July 1, only 671 men were still to be counted. It would fight on to the end of the Civil War, and do so without its all-Western makeup, but never again was it a major force in battle.
Some 150 years after the last member of the Iron Brigade laid down his life for his country, the complete story of what the Black Hats did at Gettysburg and how they remembered it is now available in paperback.
