    For me the principle challenge is maintaining my self respect as I explain to my wife why I absolutely need this new — and coincidentally very cool — tool to do the home renovation she would like to...

    My experience is similar to most: a crude tool that is seldom used, but excellent at some things. I have used mine as above for trim and cutting fairly straight lines in drywall. But I didn’t see...

    I put a t-track on top of the “back” of a crosscut sled to make it easier to slide a stop into position. I made that back board higher than the blade can reach so there is no chance of it touching...

    LOL: I have both a Stihl and an Echo. They both leak. I just store them on a piece of cardboard that absorbs most of the oil. I do the same when transporting them.
