i really like that nicht stand. I have been thinking about buzzing up some chain lately but havent gotten around to it. Looks great! Yeah dewalt used to make quality tools but in recent years all i have known dwalt to be for is target practice.

All my Dewalt stuff is about 8 years old, so I was shocked to see that last pic. My stuff is quality.


Hey if your still trigger happy, I could use a laptop mount for the truck something that uses like the passenger seat bolt and just sits in front of the the HVAC controls maybe

dewalt is top notch. we have:

two 12" sliding compound miter boxes
10" table saw
10" non-sliding compound miter box
skill (circ) saw
two jigsaws (one's crapped out)
two drills, one's heavier duty
two random orbital sanders
router (older, used as a backup to the newer milwaukee)

battery powered:
sawzall
1 regular screwgun (had two, but one bit the dust, hence target practice)
1 90 degree screwgun
circ saw

however, my favorite is the 18 volt ridgid screwgun. it's a little heavier, but it's a lot stronger. the beast broke my wrist putting a 4 inch screw into a door jamb!
