Re: Power line question

I saw your question on KL first, so I answered over there. This is what I posted: Can't tell much from the picture.

Re: My last day of regular work is tomorrow

Congratulations! You will be joining an elite corps of old farts. ;)

Re: Man it's been awhile...

I have a couple 20v Dewalt tools and I'm happy with them, but I haven't tried the Black & Decker versions, sorry.
