Some of the larger tools that I use daily in my shop, or on the road.
Every day I use the portable Makita table saw I bought 35 years ago!
I bought this Makita circular saw ten years ago and it is till like new. It handles better than my Milwaukee saw, which I still own. Don’t waste your money on a Skill or Black and Decker.
Since I bought my Paslode nailers a dozen years ago, I mostly use a hammer for pulling out old nails
I’ve own two Porter Cable orbital sanders for many years.
My wife bought me the Ryobi 18 volt kit, back when they were blue. Other than replacing the batteries about every 3 years, the tools are all still going strong, and the drills are used daily. The new green models have the longer-lasting lithium batteries.
For as long as I’ve been a carpenter, I’ve owned three reciprocating saws– a Milwaukee that lasted 15 years, a Black and Decker Professional that failed within a year, and my current Milwaukee Sawzall, going strong after over a dozen years.
Since I set up my shop dust filtration system many years ago, and my lungs are healthier and happier!
