I love my Sawzall!

Used the Milwaukee 6519 to rip out a termite-eaten rough sill under a bedroom window. Turned out that the lower flange of the window frame was nailed to the rough sill, along with numerous 16d nails coming in from the outside sheathing.

Sawzall took care of it. Zip zip zip. Like a hot knife through buttah. Can't wait to get the pruning blades so I can start clearing the backyard.

Fishing Expert Used Against Peterson's Alibi

KCBS reports that Angelo Cuanang was called as an expert witness in the Scott Peterson trial. Cuanang, along with his brother Abe, are the experts on fishing in the SF Bay Area. I used to read about their exploits in the short-lived but excellent Angler magazine, how these guys would climb down these crazy goat trails to get to prime shore fishing spots, or how they'd go out into the blue water in a 14' aluminum boat and haul in 150 lb sturgeon.

I never got anywhere near the kind of fish those two got, but it was interesting to see Angelo called into the Peterson trial.
