SO I DID SOME FIX-IT STUFF AROUND THE HOUSE — classes are over, exams written, nothing to grade yet, this is as free as I ever feel! — and I got out my Bosch drill/screwdriver. It’s been quite a while since I used it and I had forgotten how much I like it. It made me want to find more things to drill and screw. Er, you know what I mean. Too bad they don’t make it anymore.

The 12V Bosch Impact Driver is Great, Too!

My Aunt & her Woman and I put up 1400 ft^2 of paneling in my barn in Ohio AND numerous other projects involving the driving of drywall screws using a couple of these little Bosh 12V impact drivers. Nice thing about impact drivers is that they don’t impart much torque back into your hand/wrist, like a normal drill/driver would. A great addition to my arsenal…not exactly an AR, but…

Somehow gratifying.
