VERY NICE!

I get a ton of use from mine. Love it.. its one of those tools that is mandatory once you have it.

Now if I could make mine quick change.. that would be even better!

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...
