    Do You Own a Perfect Power Tool?

    I own a variety of power tools ranging from very nice to junk. With one exception, they all have foibles. Little things that could have been better engineered or executed. If you own a perfect tool, post em up and share the knowledge.

    Here's mine

    Makita 5007MG 7.25" Circular Saw http://www.makitausa.com/en-us/Modul...px?Name=5007MG

    It's lightweight and very smooth cutting. Solid foot that stays square. Big levers for depth and bevel adjustment. Blade change wrench secures in handle. Nice case with extra blade and rip guide storage.

    I've used many circular saws and this is as good as it gets.

    Also, I don't own one of these, but I've had the chance to use one, and I couldn't fault it:

    One more thing: when I worked for the State Group they had a bunch of the Milwaukee M18 lithium powered tools, and one of the 3/8" drive impact gun and drill kits is definitely on my To Buy list.They seem to come on sale at TSC occasionally, so I just have to time it right...

    That, along with my 3" pneumatic cutoff wheel, a bench grinder, and a fluke 87.

    I don't have many power tools. I love my Milwaukee 1/2" electric impact. Very simple tool that saves me so much time. I'd love to have air tools but it's not really in the budget right now.

    Also, I have a Hitachi angle grinder which is a good tool, but I haven't used it that much to have any idea of its reliability. However, I've used these Dewalt wire brushes with the grinder, and I must say that they are awesome...

    Bosch 36618-02 is my savior on many many builds:

    "Pushy" has a completely different definition when Sean Connery says it.

    That Bosch is a decent drill, IF you don't have these to compare it to...

    I like Milwaukee M12 1/4" impact driver better than the white Makita.
