Hello from a Newbie

Hi, I fell in love with the independence a Dremel pocket driver provides. It was a gift from my husband and led to the purchase of power sanders, power mini saw and rechargeable hammer. Favorite store is now Harbor Freight Tools. Projects: Hanging curtain rods, put wheels on lots of pieces of furniture, lol, fireplace insert to make double sure cool air doesn't go up chimney in hottest summer on record in Texas, laundry cart that goes between dryer and washer, now refinishing grandmother's 1930's buffet. Messed up big time. Have stained mostly oak pieces, didn't realize buffet is a soft porous wood. Absorbed too much black. Had to re-strip, re-sand, and apply pre-stain. Looks much better now. Shame on you guys for not telling us women how much fun power tools can be. Lol, nice to meet all of you!

Welcome from Texas !!!

Welcome to the forum.

And yes, my wife likes power tools as well. We almost have to have a his and hers in the garage.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???
