I've had my pacer for a couple years not and I'm quite attached to it. :)  I'm going to be redecorating my bedroom by myself and have decided to replace the flooring with a click and lock option. I know that I'll have to use some powertools to cut the flooring into the right lengths. I had an "oh no" moment when i thought, maybe using powertools will be a bad idea because of the vibration of the saw. Am I being over-cautious or is this something that I should really think twice abbout doing? has anyone used power tools with their pacer?


go for it

If you pace with rate response the vibrations may fool the pacer into thinking you are working out. Harmless, just know what it is when you feel it. You won't hurt anything, have fun.

Hand power tools won't be a problem at all. I use them all the time, without even considering me PM.


Not a problem

I volunteer in a charity woodshop where we make furniture for indigent families.  I run all the power tools without any problems.  The only things that bother my pacemaker is the Saws-all saw because of the vibration and riding in the big trucks when they are empty.  In both situations my pacemaker picks up the vibrations and thinks I'm running so it kicks up my heart rate.  But other than that, no problems.  

Hope your flooring looks nice when you are finished.

Since I got my pacemaker, I don't pass out anymore! That's a blessing in itself.
