    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    @plunger, I made myself some new NAB adapters for one of my reel to reel recorders this weekend, not completely finished yet, but part of the process is machining 2 small bronze collets, which included using the slitting saw for the first time ever, and I must say that slitting blade made a complicated job a walk in the park..

    Very happy, I know I was only cutting bronze, but the process was like a hot knife through butter..

    Also got to use the new aluminium cutting carbide tips I had ordered at the same time I ordered the slitting saw blades, since the 10 odd my father had given me before he left our borders for the far north some 14 years ago are now done and dusted, and I must say, they worked flawlessly..

    Pity about the operator...

    Thought this may be of interest to someone, I don't know the seller so not vouching for the person

    Makita DHP458, DTW190, DTD152Z + charger + 3 x 3ah batteries - R9k - he may even be negotiable.
    (retail for the tools is over R11k)

    I recently redid my whole woodwork shop.
    Refurbished some old equipment that was in storage, made router table and clamp a-frame and changed benches and built large centre workbench.

    This all in a 5.6x4.6m space

    Some things in life is not really quality dependant when you use it.

    The quality of the brandy in the 6th double at the braai matters naught.......

    But some things in life just becomes so much more of a pleasure when quality is a given.

    A good pair of boots.
    A good fishing reel.
    A good watch.

    But most of all - tools. I am a self-taught tinkerer and the one wisdom I am teaching my son - build up your tool selection slowly but buy the best there is. Wish somebody told me when I was young.

    a million percent. Thats one lesson I did NOT learn from my dad - he only ever bought Makita/Metabo and I have some his powertools still going strong decades later. Stupidly I chose the cheep and plentiful route when I started buying tools chucking them as they break and only recently did the penny drop for me and I'm going though the financially painful process of upgrading my tools.

    The joy of using a proper tool far outlasts the pain of its purchase price
