>>932393 Fuck. I'd have to go with two combo machines. A DeWalt radial arm saw and a Shopsmith probably. Not ideal machines and you have to re-zero them every time you switch up what you are doing but they can literally do everything. I can't think of a single operating in the shop they can't handle.
For around the house tasks I generally use hand tools because I fucking hate battery operated tools.
>>933003 Meh, it's just dense faggots who don't realise how deeply they have programmed by big corps, like those dipshits that call tissues "a kleenex" and who call any rotary tools a dremel. Also, my sister, who calls any tablet an iPad.
Just be happy that you're not as blinded as they are and move on.
If you were to actually evolve with the times, you wouldnt be calling a circular saw a Skilsaw
Generic trademarks for things that dominate the market exist.
"Skilsaw" was king back in the day, hence why some places started calling it that generically. They arent top tier anymore, even their wormdrives are beaten by other brands. This has been the case for over 2 decades now.
Dremel is still the undisputed most popular rotary tool, hence the generic trademark.
I think its just simple southern folk, they call all sodas "Coke"
so you could put up some shelves with a mill right? just put it in front of the wall and angle the head 90 degrees?
no you can't build other tools because you are limited to two, not just if you started from two.
a cross slide isn't a power tool, you could have said a drill with sexy bearings that you can mount above a slide and use as a mill when you need to, or mount it horizontal over the same slide and boom, lathe.
>>934806 I can run a flex shaft off my Bridgeport.
The idea of being "limited" contradicts tool use itself, for tools exist to breed. This has been the case from flint knapping forward through CNC machine tools.
If I were using handheld power tools I'd be making other tools too, which is why I included a six-inch angle grinder for flap disc, cutting disc, wire wheel, and other tasks. You can make a "Johnny Cash drill" by mounting a chuck to an angle grinder head. An old trick for which I don't care to built the adapter, but it ain't hard.
>>933012 Meh, it's the opposite imo. pisses off the big corps that their name has be taken and is no longer legally protected. kleenex instead of facial tissue, bandaid instead of adhesive bandage, coke instead of soda or pop, aspirin instead of acetylsalicylic acid, laundromat instead of coin operated laundry shop, escalator instead of moving staircase, touch-tone instead of dual-tone multi frequency telephone signalling, zipper instead of clasp locker or hookless fastener, shopvac instead of wet/dry vacuum cleaner. Hell, dry ice, kerosene, dumpster, tons of common words started out as trademarks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_generic_and_genericized_trademarks Get over it, it's a natural extension of the language. >>933003 So basically stfu. Tldr the ones you might see at a job site: skillsaw, sawzall, crecent wrench, robertson screw, phillips screw (when used to refer to one of the half dozen other cross screw shapes), dremel, rotozip, channelocks, shopvac, allen wrench, dumpster, formica, pergo, fiberglas, kerosene, linoleum, maglight, nylon, plexiglas, lexan, styrofoam, refridgerator, scotch tape, sharpie, sheetrock, superglue, tarmac, thermos, torx (when off brand called a hexalobular socket) tyvek, velcro, vinyl, x-acto knife, stanely (utility knife), zipper.
A big motor and a little motor. e.g., an induction motor for your metal lathe, router, table saw, or mechanical power hammer (if they still even exist); then a dremel, drill, reciprocating saw, other handheld device.
>>933012 Referring to tools by their classic brand name isn't corporate programming unless you are a fucking autist, because you also know their theory of operation and that the customary use of a brand name over decades (or much longer) is only that.
Autistrage is hilarious. For example "Dremel" is shorter than "small electric rotary grinder/tool" and conveys a specific layout of motor and spindle and shank size and tool set. "Foredom" is less known and may be interchanged with flex shaft die grinder, but common usage has been "flex shaft die grinder" for hanging motor flex shaft tools similar to traditional Foredom.
In the workplace the SHORTER terms are favored because brevity makes for more efficient communication while autism just flags you as a sperglord.
Excessive autism often results in co-workers giving you shit for being annoying and not taking you seriously. Go work at a shop then spergtastically correct everyone who doesn't use specific long engineering nomenclature for everything and see what happens.
"Skilsaw" is spread throughout the country. I'm an urbanite Yankee and the term was in use many years ago. Likewise "Sawzall" is a de-facto standard though "recip saw" (holy babby Jeebus, I abbreviated "reciprocating", Allah forgive me!) is widely understood. However there are other "recip saws" including hydraulic and pneumatic of varying styles and sizes. Ask for a "Sawzall" and you get that style. Ask for "Sawzall blades" and you get that specific blade tang style.
