Re: Tell us the TOOLS ON YOUR WISHLIST and it could be featured in Reader Tool Test

I would love to see board planers, Delta, Dewalt, etc...... I am remodeling an 1940's ranch, and I have saved most of the trim boards, and hand cut stubs( true 2x4's ), doors, and casings. I would like to use one to re purpose this wood and put it back into the house.

The number one tool on my wishlist isn't even a tool. It is a beam for my garage so that I can create storage in the attic space. 19' 2x4s on 24" centers doesn't sound safe to pile too much up there without a supporting beam.:eek: Ways to calculate loads and spans would be a great article and if successful I may actuall be able to get enough stuff into the attic of the garage that I would be able to clear out the garage and create a real workshop that I can use to get all these other projects done.

Number two would be a joiner and/or planer. Smooth wood is just better.

I have most of the other tools I may need.

I would really like to know the differences and if a hand held fiber optic snake viewer is worth having.

Because we do all our work on our house ourselves (and believe me, there is ALOT of work!)our tools have really taken a beating, especially our woodworking tools. I'd love to try out any new saws, sanders, detail sanders, stripping tools.

We are also laying out a new garden area this year. It would be great to have the use of a small tiller to work the soil.

Having to work out of a Garage workshop I own all benchtop tools. I was able to do furniture projects before I became I became disabled. What I would like to have is rolling bases to put my tools on so I don't have to get help moving them around due to their weight. I would also like a smaller router that will accept my 1/4" shank bits that has less vibration .
