some months ago I used a big project to purchase a couple of pricey tools one was a milwaukee 18 volt circular saw. The weight took some getting used to as I was used to the old school heavy grade worm drive skillsaw. SO I've been using the thing. I gotta say I am really impressed. The prior experience I've had with cordless has all been bad. No power what power there is is fleeting and the batteries run down. They were awful so I didn't buy any. But I'd been reading lately that things have really improved. So I got one. Just one. The saw and two batteries ( two because I still didn't have faith that they had any staying power) and the charger. Well I ended up never using that second battery but one time. The thing is rugged and powerful. One time I ran the battery down on a single job. I was cutting 6" wide dados in several 6 x 6 in beams to use as interlocking joinery. I sliced hundreds of cuts and then used a chisel to make the dadoes. Other than that one time I've never run a battery down. I never noticed any flagging of power in the tool. So now I guess I'm sold on cordless. So I just got a milwaukee half inch drill / driver. And playing with that a little I am very happy with the tool's capability and power.
Harbor freight just came out with these. I hope they have a chuck that will hold things. I got a drill there years ago and the chuck would not stay tight https://www.harborfreight.com/20v-hypermax-lithium-12-in-drilldriver-kit-63531.html?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2817bauer&utm_source=1012&cid=mEmail_s1012_c2817bauer&sfid=
I bought one of these sets a few years ago, mostly to work on the back screws for drawer glides that need repaired. https://www.amazon.com/GearWrench-85035-35-MicroDriver-Set/dp/B0062FSAVI It's turned out to be one of my favorite tools and most-used screwdrivers. Some of the things I like about it. * better in tight spots than a "stubby" screwdriver * more torque when needed * fast ratcheting action, especially over those L-shaped allen wrenches that you need to remove and reset every partial turn * can press down with your other hand on the ratchet and really help with partially stripped heads * knurled wheel so you can finger start nuts or bolts and get the threads right * standard 1/4" drive lets you use longer or other accessories, available elsewhere * lots of drive types right there. No more looking for that T-15 Torx driver or 10mm wrench somewhere I've supplemented mine with some other drives that come in handy * metric Allen drives * Pozi-driv for those Euro-hinge adjustments * #0 Robertson * some magnetic drives for when I really have an inaccessible screw or nut
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
