Have you ever seen the instructions that come with power tools? They’re a gas. They have 47 pages, usually in Farsi and Mandarin, about wearing safety glasses. Then there’s a paragraph about ordering t-shirts with the company’s logo on them.
There are saws that look dangerous, and then there’s the swing saw. Take a look at this bad boy. Just a big old honkin’ exposed blade at the end of a swing arm. Guards? We don’t need no stinkin’ guards. It’s the original iteration of the radial arm saw, popular at sawmills among people who aren’t fazed by big, spinning death blades. Awesome restoration, as usual, by Hand Tool Rescue.

Props to you, good sir. This drill used to make a dusty attic look like a five-star hotel room. But then, you gave it the ultimate drill-makeover to beat all drill-makeovers. Now it’s clean enough to do dental work. To congratulate you on your drill-cleaning skills, I shall introduce you to my dentist and let him work on my cavities.
