    Just curious, as the recipient of a Recipricating Saw (aka Sawzall) for my birthday, what power tool (or non-power for that matter) do you think is best associated with one's manhood? Sawzall, Chainsaw, power drill? [​IMG]

    I try not to let power tools get anywhere near my manhood, even metaphorically. [​IMG]

    The chainsaw, you simply cannot look wimpy holding one of those howling demons, unless of course, you cut yourself.

    AK-47. Takes out the rift-raft.

    After that, a MIG welder. Molten metal swirling like lava from a volcano sounds manly to me.


    Freudian slip? [​IMG]

    A Binford 3200. Don't matter what it is (grunt-grunt-grunt). As long as Tim "the tool man" Taylor isn't using it! How about a jack-hammer? And although it's not terribly manly, I couldn't live without my cordless drill.

    hammer- for sure! If you can't fix it, at least you can break it the rest of the way.

    The power tool most related to manhood is usually used by ladies. [​IMG]

    But, I like my table saw.

    FYI: It's "riffraff" (or "riff-raff".) No "Ts". But if there were any rift-raft I'm sure an AK would take care of them. [​IMG]

    If he REALLY has an AK-47, rift-raft is OK with me [​IMG]
    As for power-tools, I choose the wallet.

    Dennis, I'm glad that you're up there in Idaho.

    I guess I'm a wimp, but I would say the Sonic Screwdriver..

    That is why my favorite is a cutting torch.

    Actually I just got back from using a 10-lb sledge to drive a piece of rebar into the ground. Talk about a manly rush! [​IMG]

    Sawzall. Destruction with a power tool. Mention one in a group of men and 9 times out of 10 you'll get a bunch grunts and grins.

    A little word of advice - if you're looking for a chat-up line to impress the girls, I suggest you don't use this one.

    Sawzall, cutting torch, chainsaw, nail gun-- anything you can easily kill someone (including yourself) with. Must also be loud and hand-held for optimal manliness. Since the chainsaw is also the smelliest and dirtiest of these four, I guess that's my choice.
