Power Tool Review Website - 2 replies
Have you seen this power tool review website? http://www.toolselect.com/http://www.facebook.com/toolselectI really like the short tool review videos. Usually 3 or 4 minutes to give you a solid look at the tool. I am not against full length reviews, we do need them as well but sometimes it’s best to just “cut to the chase”.Keith

This is not a question about which finish is the best or harder, (unless you only build the same thing over and over) it’s about what is your favorite and why.
