    my 20 yr old ryobi drll r.i.p.

    yes, i'm sorry to say that my faithful, ever ready, 20 yr old drill has seen it's final project. when i was putting the last of the lag screws in on the lathe platform, it started spewing smoke from the housing. it will be missed...

    I had a couple of NEW electric chainsaws that had the same ailment.. about 2nd and 3rd time I used them... electric motors that are burning up in your hands sure do stink... literally and figuratively

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
