    I use this power tool every day. It has never let me down. (with all the attachments they make today for drills this is a very versatile tool)

    As for a hand tool you be surprised how much you can do w/this working on an a/c / furnace unit.)

    I realize that this will vary from person to person and what field they work in. Since the home remodel buisness has tanked here in Cali I have gone into home repair.

    Now that I'm out of the auto repair buisness, all I really need now is a ladder and a couple screwdrivers...Those are my go-to tools now.

    ooooh fancy. I couldnt justify spending $300 for the tibone hammer or the cheaper titanium head ones. But they sure are nice.
