Re: Old Power Tools
said by Hall:It's not as heavy as you would think given it's construction (about 5lbs). My (newish) Milwaukee is about the same weight, but I would trust the Shopmate better for longetivity and durability.
I'll bet that jigsaw weighs a ton !
But the casing of that is made of some exotic material we don't see in tools much nowadays.... Isn't it called "metal" ?
Yessir, they just don't make them like that anymore.
i have my dads old single speed non reversable drill, cant remember the make, but its solid as hell, use it to stir paint and joint compound!
