Some of the tools, toys, and stuff, I’ve used over the years. I’ll tell both good and bad depending on my experiences. One thing I’ve learned is that not all tools are made the same. You and I can buy a hand tool at the same time at the same store and have vastly different experiences with it.

I’ve had a cheap $20 dado blade set work great and some high-end, name-brand stuff die a quick death. You can use my opinions as a guide, but take them with a grain of salt.
