 Below you'll find the final breakdown of polling results in descending order of popularity (top three). Perhaps the most intriguing results came from the "Most Popular Shop Gear" category. Good old lumber took the top spot and we can't help but wonder if perhaps that is a reflection of the tough economic times we're facing these days. Folks could have gone with clamps for the top spot, or perhaps even a bench. Instead, it was a simple stock pile of materials that most folks were after.

• Lie-Nielsen Shoulder Plane - 7%

• Lie Nielsen Low-Angle Jack Plane - 5%

• Chisels - 5%


Most Popular Power Tools
