This combo kit seems like the perfect set for my next project that I am starting in a few weeks. I will use all of these tools building a 24’x24’ garage addition onto my present garage in order to make the old garage a dedicated shop. Not only would I use the tools for construction but also the recip saw will be great for demolition. Additionally, as you pointed out, the light will be invaluable during the delightful crawl space work.
I am addicted to wood chips and sawdust. I need more tools to make more and feed my needs. That, and the chickadees in my backyard need a new bird house.
I think you should give the tools to the folks above who had to sell their tools to make ends meet. The boat I would build pales in comparison to their needs.
I would start work on a new workbench
just getting ready to build a chest of drawers for our new grand daughter...these tools would be great help...
I would give this to my husband for father's day. He works very hear and in his spare time is in the middle of a remodel project struggling through with an old mis-matched array of tools. Love your site.
I would use these tools to build a new dog house. My dog's have been buggin me about a new one for awhile
My husband and I recently had money problems and had to sell all of my husband's tools just to make ends meet. These tools would be a great start to recouping what we've lost...
My wife and I are rebuilding the home my father and grandfather built in 1949, new tools to work with would be a welcome addition.
I would build a small deck for our camper on our north woods property - Then a new shed to go along with it ....
Cleaning out (this portion now largely done), repairing and fixing up parent's former home, circa 1951, over the last nearly 1.3 years, so that it can be rented. It's looking better but there are still lots of things to do.
I have a long list of projects I could use this for, starting with building some bluebird houses with my 5 year old.
I would build a compost bin for my wife.
This would sure come in handy for a new fence I am building this summer.
I would use these great tools to build some wheelchair ramps for my mother.
I had to sell my power tools recently and only have hand tools and an old corded drill left. This kit would make my job a lot easier! :)
Thank you very much for the generous opportunity.
Nice set. I need to build a workbench because I'm tired of working on sawhorses and the garage floor.
I'd send it to my dad. I went back home to visit last weekend and most of his tools are older than I am.
Since they're already dusty I might try them out though. Is that wrong?
Would be perfect for the deck replacement project I've got lined up.
I would use these to rebuild the shed my grandfather built at his house. It was his work shop/hiding place where he would build minture furniture for the my cousins doll houses or sneak away to watch baseball on the black & white screen 8" TV with rabbit ears. It's also where he help me to build my first pine derby car.
My grand father has long since passed, but his tools and un finshed projects remain in the work shed that is started to fall apart.
Over the next few months I will be assisting my soon to be father in law in building a cabin. I could use the tools to improve my standing with him as this is his sort of thing. Come on, help a guy out!
I'm planning on rebuilding my 30+ year old shed this year. So these would be great for the construction of that.
Could definitely use this for fixing up my toddler's room, as we moved into a fixer-upper and it needs LOTS of work
My wife and new baby son need a shade structure on our west-facing back patio to supervise our toddler scoot around the backyard. I've got plans to build a pergola atop the concrete slab and these tools would be a great help. What better Fathers Day project than shade for Mom and baby!
First I would try to jimmy up a toybox to house all of the kid's toys. Then, I would build a shoe rack since the teeny closet I have doesnt have enough space for all my shoes! =)
I'd build a porch swing for my sister and brother-in-law... Looks like a nice kit!
Man, I hope I win this! I have a lot of work to do on my "off-the-grid" cabin in VT and having a cordless set like this would be a great help!
I would build an outdoor shelter for my garden/grass/leaf clippings and firewood. The yard waste bags that we must use degrade too much between the weekend and garbage pickup day. A shelter would help keep the rain away in the meantime, as well as pests that eat through the bags and nest in the firewood.
