I forgot to mention that the cutting stand I built was done with my new Ryobi 18 volt cordless drill, which is awesome.  It put a 1-inch spade bit through the pressure-treated 4x4 like nobody's business.  I'm pleased with that one.  In fact it was so strong it sheared my 1/8" bit right in half.  I never liked that bit anyway.

I posted a simply delicious reply to a LJ post asking about where they could find 'used cubscout uniforms' (use your impression of me to wonder what I might've answered with), and I come to find out several hours later that it isn't on the thread.  Not even a 'reply deleted'.  Was it ever there?  Did it vanish?  Lost in limbo like all the unbaptised babies?  The world may never know.  Actually, come to think of it I have a used cub scout uniform hanging in the closet at my Mom's house, I wonder what's in the pockets.

I've used the Rigid but not Ryobi brand cordless tools, but as much use and abuse I put my DeWalts through I'll have to stick with them.
theres one badass tool everyone is copying from DeWalt, it a 1/4" female drive colleted cordless impact,I bought mine like 8 years ago, these are bad ass!! I routinely hammer 3" #14 screws thru hard rock maple with no problems. the only place I've found 3 and 4 phillips bits have been at WL Fuller tool company.

oh and I'll bet you leapt for joy and squeezed right into your old boy scout uniform.smiling from ear to ear!! hahaahahah!!

I didn't want to spend so much money for a DeWalt drill, those things are crazy expensive. The P810 was rated a 'best buy' by Consumer Reports so I just went with that one. It's got a half inch chuck and it's 18v so it should be good enough for anything I use it for. At least until some crackhead steals it too!

dude I'd fit in that old uniform like ten pounds of shit in a five pound shopping bag..
