What's your favorite shop tool, and why?
If you know it, what's the make and model?
I love my shop tools. It is hard to choose a favorite. I imagine it would be me battery powered drill. No cords to mess with and forget installing screws with a screwdriver anymore. The one I use most is a DeWalt 18 volt powered drill. It is light-weight enough to not tire a person out while having enough torque to put screws in the toughest of lumber.
I totally agree with SirDent...power drill. The cordless ones are heavier because the battery is built in. I prefer Makita only because I've been using that brand since school (Sculpture major). Though, I've used DeWalt and they're pretty great too. (and I love the yellow color - it makes it easy to find when you put it down). And, the ideal set up - 2 drills, one for pilot holes and one for screwing...much easier and faster!
It seems universally everyone loves their drill. I have a 14 volt DeWalt xrp, and I recently bought a Ryobi 18v impact driver (in love). I have lots of tools, dual bevel sliding miter saw, table saw, small band saw, plunge router, a few sanders, drill press...but I want something new and not sure what would be worth my money at this juncture.
Sounds stupid but my favorite shop tool is my Stihl 046 chainsaw. I do alot with it. I build log homes, make furnature with it and so many other things.
That doesn't sound stupid at all!!
My favorite yard tool (back when I had a yard) was my cordless electric hedge trimmer--good for all sorts of errant plant growth.
Too cool that you make log homes and furniture!!! I don't even own a chainsaw :-(
I'm another fan of my drill--a cordless one with variable speed and torque settings for screw/nut driving. And epic battery life! A definite must-have for everyone.
Sorry, I'm too lazy to go look up the make and model, but I think it's a Makita (90% sure). Makita makes awesome power tools--I own several.
