So, what’s your favorite power tool? Mine, the router. It’s SO versatile.

My second favorite tool? The drill.

If I could have only two power tools, they would be the router and the drill.

How about y’all?

Happy Wooding!

My self "my wife said I was a tool " table saw, router table , shaper , sanders


I agree, router and drill

Has to be my new Lugana 14-12 bandsaw. Since I have had it I have reduced the use of the table saw by 90 percent which is so much more dangerous in my mind since I sawed the end of my thumb off. Also with a thin blade it will compete with scroll saw. Router a close second.


Without a doubt my current favorite power tool is the new light system above our recently up-graded grinders. Accuracy is a lot easier when you can actually see what you’re doing.

Band saw and lathe. If both are well set up a person can stay very occupied with just the pair.
