Ironically enough Skill Saw makes great circular saws. They’re cheap weekend warrior brand but they’ve been doing it so long they make a decent saw. They also make high production commercial saws too

@RevStench What kinda Nd of nail guns you use for finish nailing? I really like my Senco pin nailer for trimming stuff. Super lightweight. I used to use porter cable but moved on

2017-12-15 17:05:57 UTC  

Bosch is top tier

2017-12-15 17:17:53 UTC  

@Deleted User I use semco brad finish gun and a senco and porter cable gun for 16 penny.
Love them both.

2017-12-15 17:19:09 UTC  

@John O - I have one of those heated Bosch jackets, it's amazing. The battery lasts about 6 hours of continual use.

2017-12-15 17:19:58 UTC  

@Deleted User I use Sawnson speed squares and framing squares.

2017-12-15 17:22:36 UTC  

Battery powered circular saws are dangerous in my opinion. They don't have enough power and they kick back a lot. Good way to cut off fingers.

2017-12-15 17:23:31 UTC  

I use a DeWalt battery operated nail gun for brads, it's awesome for finish work.

2017-12-15 17:25:51 UTC  

@RevStench That reminds me of an old comic from the New Yorker with a guy who wrapped himself up in an electric fence for the winter

2017-12-15 17:26:16 UTC  

Yeah Swanson is great. Battery powered circ saws suck

2017-12-15 17:26:35 UTC  

I like worm drives but don’t have one.

2017-12-15 18:03:50 UTC  

My ryobi hammer drill caught on fire while trying to mix concrete with it

2017-12-15 20:41:18 UTC  

Snow and Neally make a great wood axe

2017-12-15 22:17:50 UTC  

@John O - haha that's awesome. But that coat is so nice.
@Deleted User I use a left handed worm drive saw, it's heavy 😂 my only complaint.

2017-12-15 22:19:05 UTC  

@Deleted User I don't use an ax a whole lot, but what makes those axes so good? Like why those over the competition?

2017-12-15 22:55:51 UTC  

Sturdy, sharpens easily, light for its strength, USA made, pretty affordable

2017-12-15 22:56:01 UTC  
2017-12-15 22:58:49 UTC  

Oh cool. Thanks for the info man. I've never thought about what makes an ax one worth having.

2017-12-16 02:19:51 UTC  

Ok not trying to show off here but I got myself a really nice watch I’ll hopefully have for life then leave it to my son

2017-12-16 02:27:53 UTC  

@Deleted User How much was it? What materials is it made from?

2017-12-16 02:28:18 UTC  

Steel not platinum 😀

2017-12-16 02:28:37 UTC  

Let’s just say I could have bought a used car

2017-12-16 02:29:26 UTC  

So $300?

2017-12-16 02:29:33 UTC  

Haha

2017-12-16 02:29:59 UTC  

Nice looking watch

2017-12-16 02:30:05 UTC  

I’m probably about 20 years older than most people on this server

2017-12-16 02:31:32 UTC  

Omegas are incredible watches that last forever and not as finicky as a Rolex or some of the other luxury brands

2017-12-16 02:31:55 UTC  

Just not sure how much of that money went to schlomo

2017-12-16 02:33:05 UTC  

I was thinking of getting a good watch

2017-12-16 02:33:14 UTC  

I want to get some nice jewelry

2017-12-16 02:33:45 UTC  

Better to save my money, though, I have big plans and need every penny for it

2017-12-16 02:34:07 UTC  

God, I'm such a miserly ass

2017-12-16 03:18:22 UTC  

@Deleted User that's nice.

2017-12-16 15:14:23 UTC  

@John O -#7072 you know what they say only people cheaper than joos are WN.

2017-12-16 15:15:07 UTC  

I wanted a nice watch for a decade or so and finally busted my ass enough to justify it.

2017-12-16 18:57:02 UTC  

Another built for life: Alden Indy boots

Those look great. Have you ever had them resoled?

2017-12-16 19:10:41 UTC  

Not yet but you can. Had these resolved about 6 times
