    Oh, I see power opportunities there. And perhaps an app that would provide a count of windings. See everything is better with Bluetooth.

    Wow. I am truly being unfairly and inaccurately portrayed.

    I'm a feckless wimp. But I love to heckle.

    Not like momma fixed it.

    They are bakers? Boiling eggs isn't in their skillset?

    Aimo and Budwom: I don't think you are mean. Just not to be ummm...trifled with.

    It strikes me - the more important issue isn't the age or 19.2 - it may be if you've moved to Lithium-Ion. IMO, that's where the benefit becomes noticeable and worth the money.
    skillet?

    Yeah, I'm down to one functioning Lithium Ion battery. The struggle I have is that over time I've gotten a lot of corded products such as a leaf blower. Because, well, they were much cheaper than buying cordless. There does appear to be a market in the C3 tools on eBay.

    I went all in on Black and Decker about 18 months ago. Drill, weed eater, leaf blower, hedge trimmer, and a light weight mower for difficult areas. Each product comes with one or two batteries, so I have a charging battlestation in my basement.

    My experience drove me to the internet - where I found differing approaches to egg-laden Easter braids. I expect the bakery thought the finished egg would come out akin to soft-boiled. It was much runnier than that. Pretty sure my mom used fully cooked eggs prior to putting the assemblage in the oven. Hence my very messy dining room table.

    We thoroughly enjoyed both our Easter treat and newly enlightened chuckle.

    ...oh, wait, this is the LTE...I mean, our collective chortle.

    Opportunities? Perhaps. But would you have a customer base? You would be selling these things to people who enjoy making things with their hands. Machine knitting already exists. And knitters who want a simple crew neck sweater they can throw in the wash already just buy them from L.L. Bean. Knitters don't knit to save money. Most of them don't knit to save time either.

    But for folks who are into power tools, yeah, sure. Have fun!

    Heloise is my favorite. Folksy wisdom, dollop of snark, dose of useful tips.

    I thought this was the carpet you didn't like?

    Sticking with one brand leaves you with a glut of batteries for big projects.
