Are the consumables available - like driver bits, extensions, saw blades, etc.? Also, the case or other carrying options for that tool. Almost all power tools require a variety of accessories to get the most bang/buck and one needs to keep those w/in reach of the tool at all times. Good cases help a lot.

My wife built her father a very nice house out of block, with a nice front porch and it seems it was becoming the local place to hang out and chat. They had to put up a fence and enclose the house and lot because it was happening at all hours.

I look at people who've been doing the same thing for generations, and wonder have you not looked on the internet, have you not looked around in other towns? It seems that everyone who has hopes and dreams, chooses to leave the farm. I don't see people Tuesday to go in the other direction. I met numerous people born in the city of Cebu, which I certainly don't count as a nice place. Even amongst those who have saved a bit of money, none of the ones I talk to have dreams of moving to the countryside and farming. I think it's a class thing, and their society has determined that farming is low class.
