      In regarding to vintage tools or any older ones, I recommend making a thread under "Ask The Power Tool Experts". Some of the older circular saws were really built and may well serve you better than a new one once fixed up some.

          Alongside the other trade tools like Metabo, Porter-Cable and any others I might have missed.

I want to buy a miter saw, cordless drill, jigsaw, reciprocating saw, and perhaps a circular saw.

            Which brands would you recommend I buy in each of these tools? Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated. Matt
            I like to check out the reputable brands: Makita, Bosch, DeWalt, Milwaukee, Hitachi, ect. Sites that sell tools, like Amazon, are a good place to get info and product reviews on just about any tool out there. You can also download manuals from the manufacturer in most cases. I like to play with the tool on display - you might like the way it 'feels' in your hand over a comparable tool. The switches, levers, weight, balance - you can get a good impression of a tool by how it feels in your hands. I've gone to the store on several occasions with my mind set on a particular tool only to get something else because of this.

            I wanted the super sawzall and meant to buy it today, it is one rugged tool in every aspect (well, almost). I noticed the trigger on the new ones were so cheap looking, it looked as though it might break if I squeezed it too hard. It was so out of place compared to the rest of the tool. I don't like the removable power cords either. Those small pins in the receptacle tend to loosen and you end up 'jiggling the cord' to get any use out of them.

            I ended up getting the Ridgid R3020. She's one sweet lookin' tool. It's orange too. It's too bad it didn't come with a hard case.
