    Built-in Outdoor Grills

    A little frustrated here, and happy to receive advice:

    A) Why are outdoor gas built-in grills like 3-10X more expensive than portable grills? You can get a very decent grill on wheels for $400....

    Stump removal, replanting

    Sadly, we had to have a massive old oak tree taken out yesterday. It was the "tree swing" tree in our yard, and we had many old memories of swinging on our bench seat with the children. I'm generally...

    Re: Tom Silva's cordless drill?

    ***, no kidding! That hand drill starts at about $350! You're going to be a power tool power user if you're spending that kind of money. (Hmmm, maybe Christmas?)

    Re: Want to test a jigsaw for TOH?

    I'd love to test a new jig saw. I'm not terribly fond of the current low-end Skil brand saw that I own today. Ironically, I'd been looking at new saws; Ridgid, DeWalt and Craftsman amongst others.
