Most of us, when we see a tool that will save us time and money, we just get it. But every Christmas my wife, my kids, my brothers ask me what I want. You guys have any ideas, maybe up to $25 or even $50 you would add to the kit?

I have some of the Milwaukee 12v stuff, was thinking of a tool only hackzall off eBay.

There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

I don't use this everyday but I'm thank full that I have it when I need it.

It works great with a 1" spade bit for drilling the top plate of outside walls from the attic on retros when the roof slopes is too tight for a drill.
Every day is a good day.......some are just better than others!

I know its not cheap. Had to bring it up for you guys not aware of it. That Dewald adaptor reminded me of it.

[Link: mydigitalpublication.com]{"issue_id":467002,"page":654} Slide 3 pages over to see table of contents CLICK ON COOLING. Then slide to page 650. Link does not get you directly to it.

One ending in 2BO. Most useful tool ever. Grab wires. Get carpet out one baseboard gap and stuff back in. Remove grills, rubber plugs and more.

Most importantly. Great for removing sections of vinyl soffits and replacing them.
