    Are you serious? That's always been one of my worst fears. I don't know why but it has.

    Yes... when framing the taller walls we used 20ga studs/track.. had to use self tappers on those. The "normal" studs were lighter gauge (24? 28?) and the normal pointed framing screws were used. Lighter studs were easier to cut, too.... you kind of develop a gorilla grip after enough time cutting studs/track with snips.

    Yes Zeroturb, small pieces from using grinders and such.
    Dr. would get it out with a tiling spade, or at least it looked that big when she came at me with it.

    I used to do commercial trim, doors. Lot's of hollow metal frame installation, swinging doors, installing hardware. Anyone else remember using yankee screwdrivers?

    Yes! I believe so, weren't they the old push-drill type tools?
    I think we could find one at the museum.

    I still have a couple of them. I figure they will be handy in some places. I even got an adapter for one of them that will accept the driver bits.

    You can find some really nice ones on ebay.... Just think.... after the EMP, I'll be the only one still able to install cabinets!

    I also have a couple of hand drills...and a couple of brace and bits.

    These are about as cordless as you can get!

    I don't really even care to remember those dark times before our drills had built-in lights.

    Yankee drills? I had one, and had to use it to set metal doors one day when the sparked blew up a 440 panel box and shut down the power for six hours.

    So here's a blessing:
    Milwaukee emailed me five days ago denying the
    warranty on my impact and offering to fix it for $118.
    I replied, which I figured was a futile waste of time, that if they will
    not honor their warranty, I will no longer buy Milwaukee products.
    Received an email today saying the tool was fixed under warranty.
    Got a separate email with a tracking number.
    Apparently they do care about losing customers.
    Supposed to arrive on Friday, I'll update then.

    None of my drills have a light either.... but my dad had one that made sparks from the motor. I still have it and it still runs after probably 40+ years! Its a Stanley.
    My dad was the greatest dad I could have ever asked for. Thank you, Dad..

    Me and Milwaukee are a couple again.
    Instead of just repairing my defective impact,
    they graciously sent me a brand new one, even despite
    the sorta snarky break-up email I'd previously sent them.
    Today I sent them a humble thank-you email.

    I recently got the 7 1/4" Milwaukee cordless circular saw. 9ah battery. It's unreal, battery lasts all day framing this house.

    sounds like a holy thing, what with G-d hating divorce and all.
    we had Milwaukee at work.
