    I'd like to change the chuck on my drill to keyed for easier use in a drill stand - its currently very difficult to change bits with the drill in place.

    So, what do ice cream and sliding compound miter saws have in common? Not a lot, but today the thought of buying the saw and a small bowl of Stone Cold chocolate ice cream are with me as I scribble this question. Got your attention, didn't it? :brows: Query; what are the two best rated 10" SCM...
