    Ahh..good call. Forgot about the nail guns. I just picked up a new Hitachi Framing nailer the other day. I'm gonna sell my Paslode F350S framer I currently have. Nails are cheaper for the hitachi.

    Like my Makita circular saw too. Have the dewalt 2 1/4 router kit and a Makita LXT drill and impact set. They've been really good so far.

    Yea Paslode nails are expensive. We use Senco nails in our Paslode at work, they are a lot cheaper.

    If I had to pick a favorite I would say my Skil circular saw.
