    Ouch--Getting Saw Stop

    Thread Starter: Ed Gibbons

    Spent some time in the ER and ended up seeing a hand surgeon. Just nicked the tip of my finger. Didn't look pretty but prognosis is good.

    Impact driver for cabinet building

    Thread Starter: Terry Thillemann

    What's a good impact driver for building cabinets, assembling workbenches, etc.?
