This DeWalt is a 12" single bevel miter saw, and I LOVE IT! Sure, the double bevel sliding saw is dreamy, but this one rocks, too. It cuts perfectly square and with the 100 tooth Diablo blade, I barely need to sand.
Another DeWalt that I love! Cordless but no compressor. Just a big old battery that also happens to fit my DeWalt drill. This weighs a little over 7 pounds which might get old if I were installing crown moulding, but I don't! It has so much power. The 608 shoots 5/8" to 2" brads, has variable countersink depths, and can shoot rapid fire or sequential. It comes with a 1 hour charger which is a beautiful thing. I got mine as a factory reconditioned unit for only $200 at Toolking.
A really powerful cordless drill that just keeps on working. It was a gift from my brother about 8 or 9 years ago, and it is still perfect.
But of course! I have the Master System and also added the right angle clamp. I couldn't build anything without this.
Makita 1/4 Sheet Finishing Sander
This is the first tool I ever bought. It was about 18 yrs ago, and I thought I could sand drywall wall with it. It still works great, and I love it!
Skil 4290 Jigsaw
This was $29, but before Christmas, Lowes had them for $20. I don't use it a lot, so I don't need a fancy one and this does a great job! UPDATE: This is a great value, and I still love it, but I am starting to use the jigsaw all the time. One of these Mother's Days or birthdays, I think I will ask for an upgrade. :)
