Hand tools vs cutting tools
So, a saw, a scalpel and a scissors are cutting tools, while a hacksaw and a hand saw are hand tools? Seems a little odd. Maybe a different method of organization might be appropriate here? —/Mendaliv/2¢/Δ's/ 09:24, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Where would soldering irons/guns fit into this? Yes, they are electric/butane powered, but they don't have motors and only use their power source for heat, not to drive a motor... 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:00, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Augers and clamshell diggers are both called "post hole diggers"
User:188.8.131.52, you said that an auger is "not a post hole digger", and then I realized that you're probably picturing clamshell diggers (the hand tool), and that's fine, but just FYI, where I come from, PTO-driven augers and clamshell diggers are both also called "post hole diggers", because they both dig post holes. — ¾-10 00:46, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
