    Lol I never gave it a great deal of thought for anything other then drywall since it would normally require needing to screw atleast a 2-1/2 ” screw, but fences are the exception to the rule that I never gave any thought to.

    Now that I can look at it as more then just a drywall tool (and fter seeing a bunch of collated screws on clearance the other day) it very well might be on my list sooner the later.

    And I’ll bet there’s even more uses for it that’ll come up some day, Like maybe T1-11 siding? Although I think that’s more of a nail job. But almost any repetitive screwing job like that

    There are quite a few more uses for it then I thought of at first. However after having to use my Dewalt cordless jigsaw today and that requiring me to bring 3 old Dewalt batteries that hardly hold a charge, I think the 18V jigsaw might be next.

    I was thinking of aiming for things I dont have, but in reality I think it’s smarter to just go with what I actually use now and would make life simple.

    I have the 18v jig saw and I love it.

    I will have to echo the words from Jim,
    I have one, and love using it, powerful for a cordless for sure.

    Well after using @r-ice‘s MRP23EVS 2.3HP variable Speed Router, I think that is now at the top of my list.
    What a great router, beats the old single speed Black & Decker router that I have had for decades.

    Still need to try that one, but I can’t seem to stop collecting 1617s instead…

    Nice to know it’s a solid tool. I’m not that far off if I do t change my mind again lol

    Its great. Used it today (with a guide rail) with a 10 inch long blade to rip a 6-inch thick maple beam for my brother in law. Slow going, but a lot safer then a circular saw since we didnt know for sure that there was no metal inside anywhere

    I just ordered that router and router table base from the Big A. I will continue to work towards the benchtop router table on the prize list. I will be all ready for it when I can redeem. Still going to take awhile though.

    Saving for the new Digital Angle Finder and Inclinometer

    I am curious Bill on what this is going to do for you? Personally, I don’t need angle measurements other than using squares. I can see it being a good tool for a framing carpenter. Other uses guys? It doubles as a level too I see.

    Saving for the new Digital Angle Finder and Inclinometer

    I just got that recently. It’s very nice, but for its size, it’s heavy. Heavier than my 4 foot Stabila digital level I got earlier this year.

    I am thinking about getting some L-BOXX2’s. I am a bit short because some of my latest tools came without.

    I never see those F12s on sale at my Lowes. They’re actually almost hidden away where they keep them. One day. I’ll finally get one.

    Looks like currently, $41 is the cheapest on Ebay. Might be something to keep an eye out for.

    I definitely need one for my 18V drywall gun plus autofeed attachment.
    Another one for the bosch floodlight and worklight, so I can store both in one boxx.
