Wow! You Toolmongers make it difficult to choose — again you submitted a lot of great projects.  We did manage to pick a winner, though: Michael.

Michael’s Project(s): “Restoring the early 1800’s post and beam barn behind my shop, a greenhouse for cold weather greens for my patient wife, and adding to the ever-expanding treehouse I’m building with my boys.  All three of these projects could benefit from the flexibility of a circular saw.  For two of these projects I’ll be on a ladder — or in a tree — which makes it difficult to use a miter saw (or a table saw).” 

Michael’s also a furniture maker, and here’s some of his recent work:




If you didn’t win — don’t despair; you’ve got 24 more days to win!  Just post your winter project (that’s make use of the Fuego) as a comment on this post for another chance to win.

    My dad has been building some cool things for me lately. And he has some more to do, like a table and chairs and a big play table for my train set. I would really like to give him something nice for Christmas. He has asked Mommy for a new circular saw and this would be perfect for him.

    Congratulations to the 2 winner. Awesome giveaway Toolmonger & Ridgid!

    Here’s my (wife’s ;-))list for this winter: 2 storage benches and 2 toyboxes. I’m also planning on building 2 sets of sawhorses to get ready for the new storage shed in the spring!

    Keep up the good work.

    I have to cut an attic access hole to install a secondary HVAC in our 100 year old house. The Fuego would come in handy as I cut the hole and then frame out the area. As you can imagine, in a 100 year old house, there are plenty of uses for a circular saw, my wife has just not informed of what they are yet.

  4. Michael says:

    Thanks this is so great! I’ll have to wrap it if it comes early enough so I can unwrap on Christmas morning! Thanks for the chance guys, I like the way you’ve set this contest up because I get to read what other cool projects other people are doing!
    Good luck people!

    I have a very small shop, so i am planning to build a covered area extending from the entrance so I can work on projects that require ventilation (painting, parts cleaning), and dirty jobs (sanding, grinding) outside without getting wet (I live near Seattle). I have a really old circular saw that has been handed down a couple generations, itt makes an awful noise when you turn it on, so I am not sure it would last through this project. I have been looking at what to purchase?

  6. Brett says:

    Congratulations Michael.

    My winter projects are small: 2 workbenches. The Fuego would be great to break in on those and get ready to tackle the portico on my house in the spring.

    I originally thought it was a waste of property for the garage not to be set in the back corner of our lot. Now I know it is an opportunity to expand the garage. That is my next big project. I have planned out a 13′ x 17′ place for a couple of stationary power tools, garden equipment, and our 3 year old’s tools (lawnmower, shovel, rake, etc) and toys (see previous parenthetical list). There will be lots of natural lighting and a large overhang/”patio” for the BBQ. Above all, this space will be fully insulated and will be heated with a external wood-fired oven built into the back wall … a place to work and play, toasty warm, and good food!

    This weekend, while I was outside unclogging my dryer vent ductwork, I discovered that we have some siding that needs to be replaced. Currently in need of a circular saw, I believe that the Fuego would be the perfect tool for cutting out the old siding. I will be working on a ladder, so a small and light tool would be a great help; a saws-all would be less precise.

    Projects to do a plenty. I’ve got an entire room to finish in my house so I can move my home office from the bedroom it has taken over to a real office. Also if I finish mine correctly I think I can have a proper smoking lounge for my cigars.

    If your siding is vinyl, reverse the blade in your circ saw before cutting. It cuts cleaner without chipping.

  11. I’ve got a deck that still needs the decking trimmed to length. I want to make a treasure box for my 5 year old. But the big project, weather permitting is a new roof for my small house.

    I just discovered the problem this past weekend when it rained — and leaked into my bathroom. I found a patch of sheathing that is soft and needs to be replaced. Yuck. Not the job to do in frozen Iowa, but the Fuego looks like the right tool for the job.

    When that’s complete, I can make the workbench I’ve been wanting. I’ve saved an old steel door to use as stiffening for the top. I think I’ll still put a layer of plywood on top of that.

    Thanks for your consideration!
