What to buy next
« on: December 07, 2007, 12:48 AM »
Need some opinions, which tool would you add to the collection next.  I'm between the Domino and this http://www.hammacher.com/publish/74670.asp, if this only came in Green.  Can we get an icon for this?

   When I worked in NYC, every once in awhile I would take lunch hour to vist Hammacher Schlemmer. What a place. Filled with expensive gifts just like this one.

I'd rather carry a Snap-On rollcart in my backpack than that thing.  ::)

Hi,

       That robot gutter cleaner on the same page might be Festool :)

And that Wenger multi-function unit isn't very good at making mortices.  I wonder how you wield a tool like that mega-function Swiss Army Knife.  Doesn't seem too practical to have to pickup the whole thing, pick out the tool you want, and then turn the whole thing.  Personally, I much prefer the Victorinox brand Swiss Army Knife products; I think the scissors are superior and easier on your fingers when squeezing the "handles."

Friends, family and Festools make for a good retirement.  PCs...I'm not so sure.

As I used to tell my children, why not get one (or even two) of each?
