And because the big blue box store pushes the hell out of them. Confession, I have purchased 3 dewalt power tools, A drill that has since been stolen but wasn't the greatest, a router that has now died and been replaced and a big ass sliding compound miter saw which has actually served me very well for about 13 years and still performs very well.
Contractor status symbol. I'm one F250 away from being fully licensed.

Truth.

I'm not Mr. Contractor and don't use 'em every day, but I've been fairly pleased with the longevity of my Dewalt power tools. I've only been able to kill one drill, and it was used when I received it and still managed to live with my abuse for about 10 years.

Brett, nice work on the canoe. I'm digging the Catahoula as well. The other Brett may be able to actually stomach this one.

Now you are just dredging up some really unpleasant emotions.

The lightening bolts won't be large enough to cover all the carnage.

The Miter saw is the only one that's really given me great service. The router died far too early (and no it's not just the brushes).

Yes! Awesome progress. I feel like you have to have at least the majority of the grunt work off to the side now. It’s curves really are beautiful too.

Notwithstanding all the sawdust and fiberglass fibres now in your lungs, this is totally fantastic!

That reminds me Brett, if you die from mesothelioma after inhaling all that fiberglass, can I have your skiff?

Because you are being insensitive, I'm going to let you ask Princess that question when I can no longer fog a mirror.

Pro tip: She will not give you the boat, and you will somehow end up paying for a few months of her gym membership by the end of the conversation.

She doesn't do "that" either, so nothing new there for you.

Best of luck Ron.

I'll be sensitive and princess has had her hands around my waist already so what's the likelihood that I will inherit your skiff?

I'm used to not doing "that" also so no change there either.
