      The steel pipe wrenches of course.
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          I don't play favorites.

              I typically call for a backhoe if they want me to shovel.

                Five piece 18 volt kit and cordless right angle driver with 14.4 volt battery. Every tool has held up and performed very well. The 18volt and right angle impacts are very useful and save a lot of time and energy. Unfortunately, I'll probably switch brands in the future for a better selection of tools. Shame Ridgid chose not to compete with the other manufacturers, I think they could have done very well.

                    Ridgid 12" single bevel compound miter saw. This saw never fails me, and I was quite pleased when I got the new one when we moved.

                    I didn't fully appreciate how good the dust collection was until we got the dual bevel, which was horrid...

                    The "jobsite" table saw we have at work is probably of decent quality, but I despise using it. It has more to do with the tiny shop, and awkwardness of using it when we should be using a cabinet saw with a nice table, fence, and outfeed system or something... Wish we had a REAL table saw to cut ply and 1 bys down to size...

                    I cannot wait to use my r4511. If all goes well, see if we can get one of these at the shop...

                    My only problem with my miter saw is that I can't cut 1x10s without hassle. Might have found a fix for that today tho.

                    Gah-own? I don't own them...

                      I love my TS3650, the motor just purrs when it comes to life after pulling out the switch.

                      My do agree with you about the RIDGID yard tools. I've got the fiberglass handled shovel, bow rake, and post hole digger and the concrete form spade. All of them are very nice to use (if you've got to use anything). Though my absolute favorite yard tool is the digging bar (not RIDGID), that was life changing; the other tools aren't.

                      I'd eventually like to get the SeeSnake on the list, but it hasn't saved me enough effort yet. If I had it a year earlier it might have. I've got to debug a leak in my shower now, and am hoping it will come in useful.

                        Its a pretty boring response but... I love my 18V drill. I have used it hundreds of hours. Just getting used to using my new impact driver now. Great for tight spaces but slower.

                        I'm sure if I were a plumber I would have to say my seesnake camera

                            one that works and does what it clams to do and if you push it just a little harder then norm it won't break.
                            the only dumb question is the one that is not asked!
