Blast from the past. I used one of those for a while back in the 70's. Don't recall the price, but it was way out of my budget.

It's satisfying to draw on paper because you actually have to think about things before you commit.
I enjoy the process.

Hand drawings also have a certain beautiful quality that is difficult to describe.
It cannot be replicated on a screen.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Hand drawing is a different way of thinking. I would wager that the majority of architects do conceptual drawing by hand then move to digital drafting for construction documents.

If we say that the ideas come from the brain, not the tool then this is a way to access an analog creativity

I'll still hand draw. I still have a portable drafting table. From there, It's CAD.

Hand drawing forces you to think things through before you start, or you'll waste a huge amount of time.

I'm awful at CAD, more comfortable and productive drawing.

Got my surebonder m18 batteryto ryobi tool adapter in.
18ga stapler seems to shoot with more authority now.
Cant wait to see if it will work in the cold, which was a major issue for the cordless ryobi guns.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Just ordered this jigsaw, I hope my Collins foot fits.


Also picked up the Master Farce track saw for $180. It works ok, dust collection is ok. The rail is in 4 sections so every time you cross a joint the movement stiffens. You have to tighten the saw fit to the track on every cut. It came with 2 new frisbee golf discs, I’ll have to try them out next summer. The blade mandrel thingy that holds the blade tight sticks out too far or something so I had to flip the “washer” around or the blade would spin freely. Not sure what the deal is there. Defective?

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


We use that saw for rough coping. I donít have a Collins foot on it and finish the cope with a Festool RAS.

Always check that the base to blade is 90 degrees. Mine seems to move on its own occasionally.

Iíve had the surebonder for 18V makita batteries for a while now. The only ryobi tools I have are the tire inflator and the caulk gun, the caulk gun already broke. Now that I have the M12 system Iíll get a Milwaukee tire inflator and give away my ryobi crap. Looks like M12 has everything ryobi has.

I haven't found anything I can't do with the 6 1/2 or the m12 saw yet. Except maybe deeper cuts when notching a beam.
