Crafty (& Handy) That’s Better. It only took about two seconds to make that hole. 8 amps of power, word. Look at the little one vs. the new drill. BIG difference.

Reply Jenny April 25, 2008 at 4:41 am hey, do you fancy giving us a rundown on what you know about tools?

Reply Angela April 25, 2008 at 7:45 am Make My Day…please! and thank you! Reply Making it Lovely April 25, 2008 at 12:46 pm Jenny, that’s a good idea! Maybe I’ll do a rundown of the tools I use most often, and what kinds of projects they can be used for. :) Reply Olivier Lalin April 27, 2008 at 11:32 am You have become my Wife’s Hero – Thought I’d have a look at your Blog knowing my 1/2 has pretty good taste.
