    We used those when we were ripping old windows out.

    I have one of those Fein mult tools that has an attachment for taking out caulking on teak decks.
    Still a long job and a bastards on the knees but it makes it a lot easier.

    I tried them but they cut into the back of my legs. I have an old cushion I use now. I don't take on big decks anymore . It can take 3 to 4 months to complete and is very weather dependent. I'd probably help my friend do one but not on my own.

    Agree they do tend to cut the back of the knees. You need a pair of the trousers with kneepad pockets.

    My 8 inch chef's knife is so sharp I swear one day I'll slice a finger off when slicing carrots.

    These Japanese silky boy pruning saws are brilliant. Unbelievably sharp.

    I carry a little Leatherman in my make up bag. You just never know when you need to snip something off.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    If you work in dusty conditions get the ones that go up into the pocket and sew a few stops in. The top loading ones get absolutely full of crap.

    The window fitters favourite tool!
    Recip saws are great for taking out old wooden box sash windows and door frames.

    I tried to apply mine in other tasks than rip outs but they don't cut neat enough.

    They're great in the garden, we had about 12 conifers that it made short work of and cut a quarter off my front hedge when extending our drive.

    I have a pair of these trousers https://www.arco.co.uk/products/8SC100?s=1 , and use these kneepads https://www.arco.co.uk/products/1835000?s=1 . I wear them 5 days a week for a minimum of 8 hours day and the trousers will last a year and never have any problem wit crap getting into the knee pad pockets.

    They are worth every penny, never go flat and you know they will land in the right place when you kneel down with no adjustment needed.
