Porter Cable Miracle!!!

For the last 4 months I have searched and searched for my Ni-Cd PC cordless drill.......thought maybe someone stole it or I left it on a jobsite somewhere. Anyway, customer returned it to me today & after sitting on a roof in the sun, wind, rain, and snow for 4 months, IT STILL WORKS! I have other cordless drills but this one was my favorite. Gotta like a happy ending.

Reminds me of when I was driving with a friend back in the 80's from NYC to Boston in his ancient Volvo which caught fire as we were passing through a tollbooth. By the time the fire department arrived the car was engulfed in flames and when they put it out nothing was left but a smoldering hunk of charred and blistered metal...except for my trusty old and battered Nikon Nikkormat. The fireman walked over with in his heavy glove and it was so hot that steam was still coming off it. He put it down on the jersey barrier because it was too hot to touch. Worked fine for another 25 years.

I love my Porter Cable tools, but they are all from the "good old days".
