    My favorite has got to be my Sawzall. Demoliton has got to be the best therapy out there. The one tool that has made my life easier has got to be my nail gun. Talk about stepping out of the dark ages and into the light.

      I have found the my 18v Impact driver is my favorite tool. All the framers use them to drive screws into the metal studs. An impact driver makes work so much easier you never have a problem backing out others screws to get something out of your way and then put it back. If only my foreman didn't ban me from using it. Yet it is my tool and he only carries a tape measure!

        My 4 1/2" angle grinder by Makita. I put a diamond blade in it and use it for cutting tile and for cutting concrete. I put an abrasive disk in it and use for grinding paint off of metal. It's extremely useful on a jobsite

              worm drive

              My bosch circular worm drive is a favorite. It's lightweight, has lots of power, is quiet, and tracks smoothly.

                PLUMBER RICK...Am I correct that the propress equipment costs in excess of $1500? If yes, so much for my Father's Day wish list.
                there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                  Right now I’m thinking it is my Porter-Cable 7424 Polisher, I waxed the car two days ago, waxed the truck today and have to wax the boat next week. It differently is not the most fun tool to use but it sure reduces the amount of elbow grease required to complete those dreaded jobs.

                    Hello my name is Will and I too and a tool freak

                    I have started to use my miter saw more and really love how easy it makes some of the projects i do with the tools i do have. I would like to make shelves and a crib but don't have the tools for that yet. I would really love to get the TS3650 and a shiny new jointer!

                      cordless ridgid impact driver is GREAT; I rarely use my cordless drill any more. i can hang cabinets MUCH easier by myself, (not nearly as much pressure needed)...in short; I use it A LOT!!!

                                probably my most treasured power tool is my old walker turner table saw, It is one good machine, I bought that when I was in High-School, and have built many items with it,

                                but probably the one I need at the time is my favorite tool, yesterday the cutting torch and welder was my favorite, as I don't think DUck tape would have worked (Sorry Red), but then the next day it may be the chain saw or what ever, it is the tool I need to get the job done,
