I went with the Australian market saw

Oh, so not the 7¼" model, 185mm model
First thing I did was remove the switch for a switch.

Do you open the body for that? Or just drive a punch until she pops? I just superglued my Makita, not sure how permanent that is.

Does this count. It was free. Not sure if it runs, but the engine is free, the chain moves and it has been in a garage for 20 years. And all the gas was drained.

Good chance it is fine.

That thing will jar your entire body, especially in rocky soil

Opened the body and removed it. Comes right out without issue. Very easy.

I don't even have a real use for it right now, but I couldn't pass that deal up

I might have a few decks on the horizon, maybe this will be my post cutter

It's been a while since I used one of those, but from memory even the straight cuts in smaller wood are better with that than a slider. Easier to hold "zero" with it too. Seems like every time I move my Makita slider I have to spend 10 minutes on the thing with a speed square.

I don't doubt it. We were tougher 40 plus years ago.

Our soil is pretty decent, with some clay, so we'll see.

Even a newer one sucks in rocky soil. Ask me how I know.

This came today. Have a few hip metal roofs to do this year. The single cut shears work nice on cutting over the ribs. Have accorded one but this will be better.

Picked this up to do a vinyl tear off and reuse.

Perfect hook for what I need.

Wasn't sure they made them anymore. I've only seen the 3x21s lately.

The only belt sander I use now is the 2 1/2"x 14. I use it for scribing cabinets to walls and floors. Not a beast for sure, but you can use it one handed.

I have the small Porter Cable one as well. We’re building 46 white oak boxed treads for an open riser staircase. I used the little guy on the first test we did, and it was not up to the task of 45 more (took a long time and got really hot).

Figured it was time to get a real belt sander.
