    Circular Saw Problems!?!?!?

    Met Mike Davis Yesterday

    I don't know if this is the correct format to post this, so sorry if I messed up. I just wanted to say that I met Mike Davis yesterday.

    I am partaking in a small reforestation project. A friend and I are planting around 500 trees on pieces of land that we have around NC and have just ordered the trees.
