    I use the flat one (LN Boggs) mostly for rounding corners. It's more comfortable to use than a block plane.
  2. I don't need a tracksaw, I just have the guys at the homecenter to cut down the panels for me. I don't work with sheet goods very often though.
  3. That seems like a great idea. What brand of spade bits do you use? I must try that, I get a lot of recoil when I use spade bits with my regular drill.
  4. Yeah, the screws will go in no matter what, without pre-drilling, they are great for construction lumber. Those impact drivers also protect your wrists, they will never kick at you, one can hold them with 2 fingers and they will still do their job.
  5. The drill I use the most is a tiny Bosch barely the size of my hand, you can see it in this pic: The other drill has a hammer function which I need from time to time. I also have an impact driver, I was excited when I got it, but honestly I can't remember the last time I used it.
  6. If you need to make a thousand holes a rotary hammer is the way to go. But for the occasional user like me who only needs to make a few holes for fischer fixings or whatever, a hammer drill is all you need.
  7. Impact drivers come with a 1/4" screwdriver bit adapter while impact wrenches come with a socket adapter (3/8", 1/2", etc). I have a small impact driver but I seldom use it. It is noisy and since it doesn't have torque settings, it can ruin your work. I guess it's more for carpenters/framing tasks.
  8. All brands have cordless drills with a hammer function you can turn on and off. I currently use a Bosch one most of the time.
  9. If you use the right drill bit, it does make a big difference. I use Bosch "construction" drill bits (the blue ones). With the hammer function I get a clean hole on concrete walls/columns. If I don't use that function the resulting hole is almost always oversized, takes more time and the drill bit gets wasted sooner.
  10. I guess you can't set the guide on the wrong side using that method
  11. I like stick framing and metal roof and siding. Check the RR Buildings youtube channel for ideas, they make great stuff.
  12. The ruler trick works fine, but I stopped using it when I started sharpening free hand. I do put a secondary bevel on the bevel side, like Nut said, and works fine too. Only a few passes on my finest stone though (about 8000 grit).
