Coolest Tool Noise.


So about every month i go through my tools, lube, clean and make sure everything is good.

Today i fired my bostitch n80 framer and forgot how cool of a noise it makes. Sounds just like the noise your tounge makes when you slap it on the bottom of your mouth.

My bosses bosch cordless circ saw sounds just like an rc car

What sound does your tools make that you get a good laugh out of

My boss has a Hitachi router that makes a nice whirring noise. Nice soft start as well.

Its a much nicer noise than the last one. That router was disintegrating internally and screamed like a banshee, enough to make your ears ring. We kept using it anyway because it only needed to last till the end of the day.

An older Senco framer that "pings" after you pull the trigger. Similar to a Beretta Teknys shotgun.

I know that's a bizarre reference, but there may be a couple people in the forum who know what I'm talking about.

...or not.

Re: Coolest Tool Noise.


I like the sound my Rigid miter saw makes. It just sounds smooth and strong. On the opposite end, I once had a Craftsman router disintegrate while using it free-hand. One instant it was rounding off the edge of a board. The next instant, it literally exploded. There was shrapnel all over the garage with a couple of chunks embedded in the nearest drywall. Not one piece hit me (that I could feel).

Band saws. Don't know why, but I've always liked that.

Also, the sound of the perfect two banger. You get that rhythm going, it may as well be music.

Re: Coolest Tool Noise.


Most circular saws scream like banshees until they get up to speed.

The worm drive is the banshee that yawns for a brief moment before she screams and gets up to speed.

I haven't used hyperbole's like this since I was in high school.

(or maybe its metaphors...)

Eh, I was a math major.

Good thread!

Carpenter Eyes,

Every time I read the name of your home town, the song 30,000 Pounds of Bananas (from Harry Chapin's Verities and Balderdash) starts in my head. You're probably to young to know the song or the story behind it. I like the story so much, I actually took a side trip to drive Rt. 307 into Scranton. It's part of your towns history.
