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? Posted Image

I try not to let power tools get anywhere near my manhood, even metaphorically. Posted Image

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.

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. Posted Image

But, I like my table saw.

If he REALLY has an AK-47, rift-raft is OK with me Posted Image
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.

The recipricating saw and the power drill....... after I saw the more...adult attachments they make for them.
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

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! Posted Image

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.
You want to upgrade again?!!

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.
