I have an irrational fear of power tools.
I know how to weld but it's not something I like to do.

I'm good with household power tools; drills, grinders, that kind of thing. I have a multi-tool with a grout remover and a drywall blade. But the really heavy-duty stuff I'm definitely a little afraid to touch. I've used a couple of table saws back when I was in theatre production, but I'd happily never use one again. And welding tools and stuff... I burn myself often enough in the kitchen or soldering something in a computer, I don't need to be near a tool that just spits fire.

Can't say I've been too fearful of power tools. In ways I can be not respectful enough of how dangerous they can be.

This is my area of expertise. I've been doing construction for over 30 years as an industrial/commercial electrician. I've also done plumping, carpentry, masonry, and auto repair. I've probably used just about every power tool there is (excluding tools for specialty work)

It's either suffer with hand turning a screw or use a power tool. I've learned how to use power tools rather quickly

I try to avoid doing work where I would need to use that type of thing in the first place

I grew up with hand tools, as that's what my dad used because when he grew up, he grew up before power tools were as common as they are now and didn't have the money to buy the ones that were available. Rebuilding engines with straight hand tools is how I learned. I used some pneumatic tools in shops once in a while, but one of my friends introduced me to the newer generation of portable electric impacts, and I've never gone back. Power tools are the way to go. Bigger stuff I've used would be Bridgeport lathes and mills, Haas CNCs, Rofin laser welders, Fronius robotic CMT welders, etc....but those are all for work, not for personal use

I can hold power tools, properly, sometimes.

I'm more of an intellectual than a grunt.
