Have had paddle switchs but prefer the thumb swith with lock. Have a big Black and Decker wildcat 7"/9" that will wear you out but it can remove some material. HF brand had 2 [inherited] that totally sucked, used them with flap discs only. Didn't last too long and no power.Good to have one for a pinch i guess.

    Anybody have any favorite brands of tools. Something you tried and either liked or didn't like?
    I've got a couple of B&D Wildcats-They're lightweights compared to the Milwaukee 6066 I keep in my gangbox at work!

    My favorite and most important tool in any shop I work in is black and decker. It makes me more efficent and the other tools seem to work better afterwards too. I run it all day long and never have a problem with it unless I run out of consumables. The COFFEE POT!!!

    Default New to welding, but not to tools,

    I must say I'm very impressed with my new Milwaukee 14" dry-cut saw.
    After reading this thread gonna start looking for a vise on CL and get a bigger hammer .

    10-4 on the coffee pot. Nothing else in the shop runs until that does, including me!

    coffee always comes first. I would say the plasma cutter. Saves a ton of time and opens up all sorts of possibilities.
