    What tools did you buy today?

    I don't know yet. 😅 Haven't cut anything with it yet. Gonna put a Diablo blade on first.

    I didn't exactly buy it today, but I got this Delta 12" sliding compound miter saw: This uses articulating arms rather than rails, like the Bosch, so it can sit close to a wall. That's perfect to build into a miter station: I'm rather happy with how that turned out. I have construction pictures but I'll refrain unless anyone is interested.
  3. How does this guy still have all his fingers? Makes me think of this:

    Well, I decided to keep the reciprocating saw. It's quite nice and has plenty of power. Unfortunately free saw does not come with free case, and I like all my power tools to have cases. Keeps things together. I asked Skilsaw if a case was available and they offered to sell me a canvas bag. No thanks. If I wanted a canvas bag I'd go to the grocery store. So, what to do? Make one! This turned out pretty much as I intended. I like it and I think I'll make a few more, for other uncased power tools I have knocking around.

    Apparently that one was too easy.

    Here's another one: I'm the tool you grab when you don't know exactly what you need. I'm often called by a brand name, but my real name is different. I'll open up for you when you rub me with your thumb. What am I?

    Awww. It's like Groot and Baby Groot.

    Nope. I knew the wood pulp thing was going to throw people off. dmz2084 was right when he said cellulose acetate. Specifically cellulose acetate butyrate, which seems like plastic but is made from wood pulp or cotton instead of petrochemicals like "real" plastics. And the answer is: The classic Craftsman screwdriver.

    Right you are. Care to take a guess at the tool?

    I'll give this one until the end of the day and then reveal the answer.

    Well, either your doctor is careless or mine is overcautious, I guess. Part of it might be that I hadn't had a tetanus booster since 1968. I went to the doctor because my wife wanted me to go. To keep her happy, I told her I'd go the next day if it didn't look better in the morning. And it didn't; the next day it looked kind of gross, actually, and it bled for two and a half days before it finally closed up. So I had to keep my promise and go.

    Wood pulp is the primary component of a plastic-like material that's been produced for over 100 years.

    Yeah. This one went in deep enough that I had to get a tetanus shot.

    Okay. I look like plastic but I'm not; I'm made from wood pulp. You can see through me where I'm not red or blue. Part of me is metal. I haven't gone to China yet. What am I?
