Daddy, tell me a scary story. Tell me about home improvement before we discovered the Sawzall.

Keep the quick disconnect on that saw clean. Mine is stuck.

Dang,. she calls you "Daddy" with a 3/4" stroke? Impressive.

7:30 on a Saturday night in OSH, I asked 'em to cut me a 3' length of black pipe so I could get some real leverage on my monkey wrench, the guy asked "why aren't you just using a Sawzall to cut the galvanized pipe out of there?". $120 later I'm the owner of a ¾" stroke Milwaukee with the quick change.

And this morning I'm showering on PEX pipe. It was worth every penny.

I own two, a $29 piece of junk that I bought for one job and expected to barely last.. It' big heavy and single speed. it's been heavily abused and still works. It was so useful I bought a lighter, smaller and more powerful Dewalt with a quick change blade mechanism. (No allen wrenches). Awesome for all kinds of things. Especially with good blades.
