    Well if you don't count saws-all blades, it would be a closet auger from General Wire.

    Sorry Ridgid

          Do you have other things in the 12V line? (Can't remember)

          Watched a video recently of the sub-scanner. Cool.

            I'll most likely die of old age before I use it enough to justify its cost...one of those tools I just had to have.

                My last tool purchase? The Ridgid 18 volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Angled Finish Nailer (R250AF18). That didn't go so well:

                    J.C., that was a great flashlight review. I read and post on "candlepowerforums.com" and I've learned a lot about LED flashlights and different lithium ion batteries. The technology, light output and usefulness of these products is impressive. I rarely buy nonrechargeable batteries anymore, the new precharged NIMH and Lithium ions are well worth the initial investment. A recent post revealed that Milwaukee is marketing a LED replacement bulb for all tool lights, and this is an area that has been without a good LED solution too long. Thanks!

                      PVC cable saw

                      Worked great around shrubs around the corner of a house. Customer was impressed, heavily that I didn't even knick the bush.

                        It really does put out a surprising amount of light.

                        Not just for use when looking inside a valve in my opinion.

                        Small size, big punch, fits in your shirt pocket, and takes up less room than a screwdriver in your tool box. And....

                        $6.00 at HD. If it's durable, my old ones are gonna' get real lonely.

                          Oh yeah, LED technology has come a long way, but still has a ways to go. Maglight has had a LED replacement kit for their line of flashlights for years, and they use next to nothing for energy. Hell, BMW installs LED headlight into their vehicles.

                          However, I would like to see LED expand into the commercial lighting industry. I would not be suprised to see the day when we finally get LED strip lighting in supermarkets, warehouses, etc. Afterall, LED use a tenth of electricity than that of flouresent lighting. No more stupid ballast retrofits where I have to move at breakneck speeds to change out five hundred fixtures inside four days.
