Favorite powertool and why....
« on: May 20, 2014, 07:41:39 PM »

Mine has to be my chainsaw.  Awesome power in the hands of a mere mortal......

My wife's has to be her power screwdriver.....  She wields that screwdriver unmercifully and uses it on everything that can be screwed  (no lousy comments from the DOM crowd either....) ;D

I'm with Catlady on the power screw gun.  My very first one was the most expensive one ever but still worth the price.  A (relatively) small Makita 6 volt.  Seems like I had a 9, a 12 and then a 14.5.  These were all while I was working on boats and you couldn't work there without one.  Every time they came out with a higher voltage I would upgrade. 

I now have a Bosch Industrial grade that's 18 volt (or maybe even higher).  You have to be sure and set the clutch because it will twist a pretty good sized screw right in half if you're not careful. 

I even have the slicer and dicer attachment just erie has on her Kitchen Aid ;) ;) ;)

Considering how many times you've mentioned that you're from Cleveland...and the types of people that has been in the news of late from that area...I suddenly had visions of Jeffrey Dahmer.

Must be because I've always thought you had an affinity for tubesteak.  ;)

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Thanks!

Oh I know I'm an acquired taste but the hard-right lip-lickers are continually chasing me around trying to get in a lick or two.

Perhaps I should feel for them when they end with their own foot in their mouths...but I really don't.  ;D
