    New battery operated nail gun

    Will drive a nail through a 2X4 at 50 yards away. Can enable you to build that fence around your yard from the convenience of your lawn chair. Just have that guy that owes you money or the one that never returns borrowed tools to help out by holding up the boards.

    Ridgid tools

    This may be rehashing an old topic, I'm a Bosch guy myself, but how does one argue with a "lifetime" warranty? Maybe its time I re-evaluate my tool (cordless) purchases. Anyone take advantage or put to use the warranty offer yet?
