I'm curious to know what kinds of modifications you guys make to your tools. I've done roofing and other architectural metal work where everyone removes or installs a carefully placed screw to disable the blade guard on their circular saws, for instance. (Sheet metal usually won't engage the guard lip properly so it just snags, jams, etc.) Siding, soffit, and fascia guys usually have mods to the nose of their staple guns.

But I learned drywall from my father who learned from his father. Many tools are handmade. (Like my grandfather's awesome sanding rig, like a 1960s shop-made Festool Planex, though not quite so dustless, but much faster and far less dust than manual sanding.) I've never worked with another hanger or taper to see what they do and I've been curious.
