Love my 10 year old Makita 12"x12" miter saw. Sure the guard sticks and its a heavy sob, but its made me more money then any other tool.

How far have you pushed this? I would love to snatch up a Rolair to replace my Porter JobBoss.

Favorite tool at this moment is my new Incra miter fence.

Bought this one for trim work over 8 plus years ago. It's small, lightweight, quiet, and affordable. Not gonna power a framer but it handles finish guns and staplers no prob!

I just bought an 18 ga, senco fusion nail gun. I don't know if it is my favorite yet, but might just get up early tomorrow.

I have three shop vacs and always take one and sometimes all three to the jobsite. I use them for my chop saw, the table saw, ts-55 even my bicuit joiner.

A Planex/CT36 AC is on my short list along with a Mirka Ceros, "payment" for getting the 2nd and 3rd floors redone at the homestead.




... she also wants a new kitchen, we're negotiating.
