The list author says: "I have an OLD stone house and stone barn that I've been rennovating for 11 years. You name it, i've had to do it. In addition to your run of the mill home improvement, stone houses have their own benefits, but also their own challenges. Want to hang a picture on a stone wall, no problem, but you'll need more than your average drill for that job."
"Must have tool for drilling through holes in stone for small conduits. Also helpful for loosening clay or breaking up or chiseling smaller rocks when trenching. Of course -- perfect tool for removing mortar between stones. Very helpful for breaking up or cutting down larger stones."
"Actually got this one for free with the purchase of one of my other Bosch tools. It's a simple but useful circular saw. Personally, I prefer a tablesaw for anything but 2x4's and 2xN which is what this was obviously designed for."
"Used this with diamond blade to remove some rough stone and concrete on cellar stairs. Cut it clean and more square for painting the basement floor where it meets the stairs. Also use it to cut-out a crack before re-sealing with hydraulic cement. Can also be used to cut-in flashing on stone."
"Great for on the spot sanding of baseboard, light furniture sanding/refinishing, etc. Best part is that you can cut your own sheets from any sandpaper you want. Includes punch tool to place holes in your hand-cut sandpaper. FAR cheaper than purchasing hook and loop paper."
"Very specific tool. This is designed for planar (flat surface) paint removal only. Extremely efficient way to rapidly remove paint (used it on doors of older home). Uses blades to cut the material rather than sanding. This is far SAFER for materials like leaded paint than sanding. Do not sand off leaded paint material -- extremely hazardous!"
"Thought long and hard about this purchase because i already had two Porter Cable nailers (framing and brad nailers), but i'm glad I got this one. Excellent tool for cabinets and other finish/trim work."
