Steve from Brooklyn Park, MN, won a free Bosch 12″ Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw from MyFixitUpLife home improvement radio show!
Steve’s winning entry:
“I am a handy fixer upper type guy and I know my way around my work room — I call it my man cave but there is nothing worse than going to do a project and not having the right tools. My tools are so old that half the time they don’t work so I borrow my neighbor’s tools but there’s something about asking another guy to borrow his tools. Its just not right. A guy would rather give you his wife than his favorite tool, so I want to have my own tools — you know like a grown up, so please vote for me as I would be so happy and maybe the neighbors would envy me for a change. Thanks”
