I remember that show! He was never one to bother with that old fashioned saw and chisel nonsense. If something needed cutting, gouging, drilling, sanding, carving, jointing et al then he had a machine for it!
Many times the wrong train took me to the right place.

He was far more basic when he started. He then joined This Old House, team, where all work was on site, and the Handsaws and Chisels, came into their own. I have all his books, again where other tools were used. A very skilled guy.
