    Any motor can be re-built. If he's handy enough, he can rebuild it. If anything, find a good machinist or local handyman, and knock your heads together until you get it fixed.

    I have an 18v Ryobi drill and I have no complaints. It's good for smaller jobs like building a ping pong table, but if you're doing something like framing work, get a 24. They have more power.

    I've never seen one up close and personal yet, but I'd love to. If you can domesticate them, I think they'd be a really cool pet. I would just have to convince my wife.

    I think the socialization skills of home schooled kids are better then that of kids in the public school system simply because there is more structure and more 1 on 1 adult supervision.
