If Echo makes it, and I need it, I'm buyin' it. Fuck Stihl, Husqvarna, et. al.

I have the PB 250 blower with the curved tube, it'll blow a brick down my sidewalk. The SRM 225 string-trimmer will till dirt if you want it to, and my stick-edger is lightning, and hardly anyone even knows what they are...

They all start on a bump. Echo is quality.

BTW-- these Li-ion 18v compact drills are the absolute shit. The impact version of the Ridgid will straight out yank any stripped phillips screw instantly, with a standard #2 bit. It is not your daddy's cordless drill. Seriously, they are different, in a good way.

The Dewalt 20v is the same way, they both kick the Makita's ass, even though many buy the Makita because of how it feels in your hand (without actually using).

I get to try all of them, even the ones we don't sell.

I think it's actually "Rigid".

I like my Exacto knife set. Except for the POS plastic lining for the blade holders. Not that an Exacto knife really counts as a tool.

One only needs 10 tools:
1 Hammer
2. Flathead screwdriver.
3. Phillips screwdriver.
4. Hacksaw.
5. General purpose wood saw.
6. Regular pliers.
7. Needle-nose pliers.
8. Vise-grip.
9. Crescent wrench.
10. Pipe wrench.

Plus two weapons of mass destruction:
Post maul.
Crowbar.

Plus duct tape.

Everything else is the creation of engineers, city boys, and suburban pansies.

Sorry, Foster old bean, but ...

Who needs that electric shit?

And if God had meant leaves to be raked, blown, and otherwise being given handjobs by humans, he would have made teenagers something other than useless.

Gunny, what would our collection of computer geeks and poetry teachers know about tools?

I'm a Dewalt man myself, but I've received a lot of gifts with the Craftsman brand. That lifetime guarantee thing is pretty cool.

I have a mix of Dewalt, Milwaukee, and Bosch. Out of the three, I like the Milwaukee's over the other two.

Lawnmowers, I have a Cub Cadet and a older wheelhorse for the trails. Trimmer is a Toro 2 cycle.

Chain saw Husky 450. Plus a 16" Polan for trimming around the yard.

DR chipper for clean up.. but that is a co ownership with Pops. Auction bought... still works well.



I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Hah! That came not from the ivory tower, but from working with my dad at his hardware store and plumbing/heating business. The man was an artist with his hands. He didn't mind specialized tools -- but if he was away from the shop (or the hardware shelves), he could do magic with ordinary tools that most of us couldn't do with top of the line specialities.

Though my dad himself wouldn't have needed the Phillips or the vise-grip. Perhaps not the wood saw, either. In the hands of a pro, the hacksaw can work magic.

I'll concede the Allan wrench, zombieslayer.

Not sure about opening a c-clamp -- I always just use my hand, perhaps added by a shop rag. I'm not strong enough to tighten too much. :( But I suppose one could always call Adrian Peterson when one needs more strength -- after all, he'll be free in early January.

Dad, being top wrestler in his squadron of the AAC, wouldn't have needed any help, though.

Sigh, he died 35 years ago and it feels like yesterday that he was insisting I make a fifth attempt to sweep the shop to his satisfaction.

Sad

OK, cool. Fine tuning guitars is an art and I swear to the Gods, I've said just as many Middle Finger words trying to fix my guitars as I've said them fixing my cars. Now with both, since I make enough $$$, I pay someone else to do it. Drives me nuts.

Without an allen wrench, a guitar becomes a useless piece of wood. And no, that's not an exaggeration.


Foster - an allen wrench is an allen wrench. I pick mine up at the local hardware store. But as I said to Wade, if time isn't an issue, someone else gets $$$ to fix my guitars nowadays. Last guy I paid something like $200 to do some work. I hate doing it.

Your Milwaukee is made by TTI industries, the same people that make Ryobi, Ridgid, and homelite. Your Cub Cadet is made by MTD, the same co. that makes Craftsman. The Husky is reputed to be a great saw. The Poulan may be a POS, dependent upon if it is a scrench capable (good) or a plastic wheel adjustable (chain tension) - bad. DR is good. Toro- look for an EPA sticker. No sticker- bad. Class C 50 hrs better Class B 125 hrs better Class A 300 hrs, best. Only Echo 300 hrs.

Stihl chainsaws are the only saws we use, because they are top of the line

My little 12v makita's have helped me through many many quads, dirtbikes, saws, lawn mowers, etc. I use them more than my 18v.

Nothing gets more attention than my welding machine though.

edit: dont forget the good ol spud wrench

I'll remember that when you are still pounding away with a hammer or cutting away with a hand saw, while I am enjoying a brew completely finished because of my electric and air tools.


I like my Porter Cable power tools.
