    I was cutting a hole in a new kitchen worktop using a jigsaw at the weekend, the blade kept coming out so I decided I needed a new one so off to Screwfix I went. Like a kid in a sweetshop I decided I like the look of a new power saw to add to my armery, didn't need it but something inside me said I must have a new toy, cut the worktop a treat. I have always fancied a router but can't convince myself I need one, yet, mind you I bought a multicutter last year because it looked good, never yet used it (n)
    Quite honestly I don't see what women see in handbags being there are to many different designs and colours of power tools they could collect instead :xwink::xThumb:

    What is you favourite power tool??

    My favourite power tool is my 18 inch Stihl chainsaw - frighteningly good chopping up wood

    I like the Makita 18v pro range always used them when working like the idea of using one battery for different tools.

    You may laugh!!
    But there are times in life when size, and raw power really DOES matter

    I know, but I can't seem to get it through to er in doors that you can't chop a tree down with a handbag!

    When you've got trees to chop down you need to have a decent tool in your hand

    There is only one way to cut work tops and get a smooth, straight edge
    A router, used with a worktop jig
    It's what all our kitchen fitters used

    Being a 'non-typical' woman I would much rather have a new power tool than a handbag! My 'favourite' is a Black and Decker Scorpion (electric saw) ... brilliant bit of kit! :xThumb: I am also quite fond of my drills too! :xgrin:

    True, but if you have the 'skill' you can do it with a hand saw too - sometimes you can't use a jig so if you don't have the skill you're b*ggered!
