        on the 5 top tools,

        so much depends on the day, and what the job is.

        a slab of concrete,
        or framing a building,
        helping run wire, or electrical.
        hanging or finishing drywall.
        cabinet making in the wood shop,
        cleaning out a drain,
        over hauling a motor,
        rebuilding a transmission
        welding up some machine or building something,
        turning and milling out parts on the metal lathe and milling on the Bridgeport,
        running a backhoe or tractor,
        fixing tires,
        pulling and fixing a well,
        preparing or planting grain, or feed
        harvesting grain or feed,
        Doctoring or branding cattle,
        Fixing fences,
        milking goats,
        helping hard birthing baby critters,
        butchering and cutting meat,

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        but my number one tool is my Gerber multi tool, that I will use on most any type of job where ever or what ever,

        gloves.

        next I would probably say a claw hammer,

        two sets of open box end wrenches, (at least one set and an adjustable open end, crescent type).

        good screwdrivers set,


        these may not be always be the most used, but with out them I would have a very hard time do most any thing else, a least after a short time when something would need to be maintained.
        Push sticks/blocks Save Fingers

            gene, did you make an adapter to run this cable in your drill?

            what speed do you run at?

            i have the general #88 3/4h.p. and there is no reason why a drill motor shouldn't work in a pinch or for lack of space.

            have you had good luck with this combination?

            thanks,

            rick.

                      i've owned these bits for years before lenox bought them.

                      i get a kick at the trade show to demo the 4 5/8'' bit with 1 hand on the drill through a 2x6

                      rick.

                      I'm pretty sure I invented those bits 20 years ago but no one believes me.

                              gene, thanks for the suggestion

                              i took my 1.25'' general cable and made an adapter to fit my 1/2'' hole hawg. i have a complex that has 2 problem sewers in the alley. the street level one is 24' and the sub terannian garage one is 15'. what a pleasure it was to use the drill in slow speed @ 300rpm to clean these 2 lines. i now can do it in half the time since i don't need to hump the beast up and down the building. 30' of cable in 1 hand and the drill with 50' of cord in the other

                              thanks for the great idea

                              rick.
