    It might have something to do with the fact that you know how to use your tools Gary rather than subject them to abuse as some people do.

    Makita are renowned for quality and performance, no under capacity batteries or lack of bullet proof construction with them! Even the $99.00 specials!

    I'm sure you've also looked after it well Gary.

    I have a Makita router and its a bit like your drill (though corded), it has done a lot of work but still feels and preforms like new.

    Because you hate everyone ? Bikes have ridiculous power to weight ratios, they don't need more power. Making them loud is just obnoxious.
    There's an older gentleman in my neighbourhood with a beautifully maintained Harley that I see around, very quiet which I didn't know was possible as it's the only quiet one I've ever witnessed.

    Everyone I've ever known who has owned a motor bike has crashed it, or been crashed into, myself included, death machines.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    I see that Metla has not responded. This confirms my belief that he does not really exist, he is just a hologram. There I've said it a last!

    Ok then, please buy a pair of those portable air horns and place one on each ear, then press repeatedly until you rethink that Idiotic comment.
