Power Tool Poll

A few weeks ago, we asked the following question: If you could keep only one power tool and had to use hand tools for everything else, which power tool would you keep? I expected that power saws would win, hands down. But I was wrong! The results were almost even for power drills and saws.

Here is the breakdown of the 2,068 votes:

Drill — 945

Saw — 880

Router — 122



Nail gun — 70

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)

I think the question could have been a bit clearer. When I hear "favourite power tool," I think of my table saw, but if I hear "favourite HAND power tool," I think of my semi-cordless drill, a 12V model that I got for $1 at a yard sale because the battery was shot and no longer available. I soldered six feet of #10 twin-lead to it, put Anderson Power Pole "red and black" on the end, and run the thing from a 7AH gel-cel.
