One of the first purchases I made after moving into our new home was my Ryobi 18v tool set. I have used it for every project I have done since 2004 (a lot of them) and they are still working great. I have since purchased the table saw, the circular saw, a laser level, sander, wet saw, and a few other things. I am not a person who goes for the cheapest price, but I do like a good value and Ryobi tools are by far the best bang for your buck! The two projects I am proudest of are my deck and hard wood floors, both of which would not have been possible without my Ryobi tools. The deck took a couple of weekends to complete. Most of the work was done by me alone, that's why it took so long. Anyway I enjoyed the project and love my new space as much as I love my tools.
