What is Wrong with ME?
« on: February 02, 2009, 11:27:37 AM »
I have always been a good gay man. I have decorated my house, and done my yardwork. My house is clean.

Lately, I have been having these strange urgings.

I caught myself gazing, longingly at this ad from Home Depot....for a 10amp Sawzall..

It's only the beginning!  For me, itt started with a recip. saw (generic Sawzall) and corded drill years ago... then progressed to a circular saw.  Now, I'm hopeless.  I've got more high(er) end power tools than just about anybody I know.  From 4 nice (Makita) cordless drills and circular saw to all sorts of sanders, compound slide miter saws, corded circular saws, jig saws, grinders, etc.  Hell, I've even got a nice welder.  In a way, you're kinda screwed; once the addiction takes hold, it's really hard to break.   ;) 

I will give one bit of advice: pawn shops.  I've gotten some of my nicest tools for about 1/3 to 1/4 of normal (new) price.  All are in excellent condition.  If one's gonna have an addiction, it might as well be affordable.

Ronnie,

You've just started on a new chapter in your life.

Wait, it gets better. I wound up with a table saw with assessories, reciprocating saw, circular saw, router table with assessories, two cordless power drills and a few other goodies including a cement mixer.

Now, what I need is a new sander, or maybe two, one orbital and the other a belt sander.

EEEP!

I'm compulsive.

HUGS,

Mark

Oh, don't get me started.  I installed a peg board in the utility room to hang several tools.  For some reason, I like the 3-dimensional look of all the hung tools (please, intended no pun) as they appear to be floating--just spellbinding.

don't just drool over the ad, butch up and go buy it!  :D ;D

Not only did I decorate the house I recently moved into (like my two straight male housemates would even know how to hang a pix or how to coordinate colors ::) they can hardly clothe themselves ROFL ); but I built a bookcase, a back porch, and a flight of steps leading to the backyard. I also snaked the drains, repaired the furnance and changed the doorlocks while adding deadbolt locks ( :-* love those lock-hole drill attachments). The roomies just couldn't understand why I was adamant about one more load (while we were moving) to get every last tool, screw and nail. But you can't do any projects without the supplies and tools.

I miss my router. I could have used it several times here at the new place; but it was stolen a few years ago. I also had a small table saw (I built the table for it myself LOL) that got stolen too.  :P But today while I was at Home Depot getting a light fixture to replace one for a friend, I did go over at drool at the saws. My birthday is coming up next month, and leatherman really wants a new table saw to use for his Spring projects.

 :)

I have to stay away from Home Depot as much as possible. When I am in there with my partner, he has to tell me to get what I need , and get moving !   :) I begin to wander around. Last year I bought one of those dremel tools.  Havent used it yet. Bought a jig saw also. I am still "getting around" to doing the project I bought that for !  :P

Must be the recipricating motion of the saw that entices you !   :)

Let's see.....
   For around the house type stuff, there's the circular saw, the table saw, the jigsaw, the reciprocating saw and a whole bunch of hand saws. There area few drills of different sizes and power outputs, and two sanders (reciprocal and belt)
   For the yard there's the log splitter, the brush hog, the line trimmer, and the chainsaw. As well as the requisite hand tools (shovels & rakes & implements of destruction)
   For the garage (someday it'll get built) we have the air compressor, and a shitload of air tools that run off of it, as well as automotive paintguns. My toolbox is taller than I am, and has more hand tools in it than I can remember how to use, but I can rebuild almost any part of a vehicle with them, including body work.
   The Future Tool Wishlist:
                    MIG welder, sheetmetal brake, tubing bender, bigger compressor, an English Wheel, and a few different sized bufing wheels...

    Maybe someday after I pay off this stoooooopid liver transplant thingy.

Don't even get me started on air tools or compressors!  Our compressor is about as tall as I am (and a lot bigger around).  I've always loved pneumatic tools, but don't use 'em as much as I did in the past.  When there's a need for one, though, nothing else will really do.  Tools can just be so much fun.

What do you envision creating or cutting with said sawzall?

Wendy,

I was actually looking for a chainsaw or maybe a large pole saw to cut down these saplings that have sprung up. But, I certainly could have used this when my mailbox came off it's perch a couple of months ago. That hand sawing is for the birds.

Hello? They don't call it the Homo Depot for nothing. Home improvement is to gay men now what drag was to gay men in the 70s. How are we suppose to hang 12" 5 piece crown moulding without the right compound miter saw? How are you suppose to construct your dream leather-wrapped entertainment cabinet with vintage hardware designed to compliment your grandmother's steamer chest while perfectly accommodating all your A/V equipment without power tools?

How are you suppose to construct your dream leather-wrapped entertainment cabinet with vintage hardware designed to compliment your grandmother's steamer chest while perfectly accommodating all your A/V equipment without power tools?


A wave of the wand usually does it for me! ;D

Love the chest, btw.

What is wrong with me?

I own one like the one in the picture. I wore it out!

Buy a Hitachi nailer (need a compressor) and you will have a tool of your dreams as long as you don't shoot yourself with dust (goggles are no joke) or worse (nail). Great for renovation. Got mine at Lowes.

The sawzall means constantly shelling out  :( for blades, no matter what quality you buy. Still, I'll use mine today.

I was actually looking for a chainsaw or maybe a large pole saw to cut down these saplings that have sprung up. But, I certainly could have used this when my mailbox came off it's perch a couple of months ago. That hand sawing is for the birds.


ron...that saw you have pictured is just the trick for cutting down those saplings.  I had some dense bushes and shrubs to get rid off.  I dug down about 6-8", cut the root, pulled the plant and tossed it.  No need to worry about stones or pebbles or dirt.  One blade should be enough to take out what you want. When you're done, just buy a new blade.  They're cheap.

Far easier than a chainsaw, that's for sure.

You guys are so unimaginative!

First, cut a four inch piece of broomstick in half long ways, tape it to the blade, using plumers tape strap the Sawzall to a five foot long 1X6 using screws and wing nuts, slip a hollow dildo over the broomstick and turn it on low and insert the dildo and see how long you can take it!

Now that is what a sawzall is for!

Nothing is wrong with you, absolutely nothing at all.

We had to stop our weekly Saturday visit to one Homo Depot because we always ran into two friends of ours.  One would greet us with, "Youwhoooo, girl friends", screamed from across the entire store.

Totally ruined our butch images.

Ric,

I have friends who do the 'youwhooo'.   When I first came out, it used to bother me.

 I got over it.

Peter,

Peter,
   Mine is actually electric. I would have preffered gas, but there were none that I could afford. PLus I realized that while I like the heavier-duty aspect of the gas powered ones, the amount of wood I need to split doesn't justify the extra expense. I only need to split 1-2 cords per season, and the electric one is more than up to the task. Truth be told, I actually prefer to split the wood with an axe and maul, (it's a great way to vent frustration) but the splitter does make it so much quicker and easier....

No Moffie, silly boy! That's what a Jackhammer is for. Though you will need someone to operate the throttle and clutch. Sawzall? Strictly for lightweights...

Well, if any one of you is a serious cabinet maker and can custom make 4, 7-foot tall glass and wood etagères, rather fine, i'll host you in fabby switzerland, make a deal for the labor and show you a good time. The ones in IKEA just aren't right (I want long legs), and the ones in the contemporary furniture shop are way too chère (and not very Cher). Im thinking Cinecetta classic but not hollywood regency. Unless you can do brass. I love brass. (They still have those brass and fern bars in San Francisco?)

I don't think any collection of fun power tools would be complete without a gasoline power washer... especially one with a long hose.  We got one a few years ago, and it's actually pretty fun.  Any time a chore (like washing the house, driveway, sidewalk, etc)  becomes fun is good!

I'd give one of my testicles to even have the talent to build something with a power tool.
Well... maybe the hair off one of my testicles, after I grow it back   ;)

If you give me four pre cut small boards with the nails and holes pre drilled to make a simple shadow box, I'd mess it up.
My other half is the power tool freak.
He built the back deck, gazebo, and every year plans additions to the back deck.
My hope is someday the entire back yard will be planks, so I won't have to mow.
This Summer I want a 15 foot high crows nest added on. My private sunning dome.

With me... its anything buttons and switches, electronics.
Maybe thats why I like computers so much?
