I agree. That s ingenious. That works about 10x faster than the one I bought that was purpose built for that job.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I have to make sure my wife doesn't see that ( - but it would give me a good reason for new cordless drill)

Spoken like a man with tools and a shop to use them in. You're going to spew apple juice in every direction doing that so you don't want to do that with your good drill. You'll need a backup. Unless the drill you have is getting old, in which case you need a nice new one and the old drill will become the backup.

Like Red Green says, "We're all in this together."

Now THAT is the way to peel spuds.

A week ago I helped my wife with her cooking by peeling 10 apples by hand. Took me close to 20 minutes. Wonder if it would work with my dewalt screw driver?? Hmmm Phillips head or flat...

I'm 'lusting' after one of the newly released 18V Bosch Li brushless drills to replace the 14.4 Ni Cd Bosch that has always been kind of a weakling after having a great 12V P-C.

Tools!! You can NEVER have enough of them (just in case**) and I would gladly gift my wife the current Bosch for a new one.

Well, you know, you can't idiot proof anything because idiots are ingenious and can get around anything logical or that involves common sense. Common sense? Clearly, not all that common for some.
