It's time for me to look for a set of good power tools. Now, i'm no Bob Vila..I've had limited time with tools mainly because i just haven't needed to do anything. I've built some custom speakers boxes, shelves, replaced bathroom countertops and stuff like in the past but it's not my career. These tools with be mainly for around the house jobs. We will be remodeling both her bathrooms and eventually my kitchen in the condo that I own. Currently I have a 5 peice 18v Ryobi set i got in 2006(flashlight, circ saw, recip saw, drill and sander, also have a dremel which i bought seperate and two batteries). I actually used the circular saw for the first time a few days ago trying to cut 3/4 inch oak plywood. I had a full charged battery. The saw could barely get through the wood. I couldnt even finish cutting. Battery died after about 15 minutes of trying to cut. So i put in the other fully charged battery and same thing, needless to say i never got done what i needed too, this thing just wasn't going to do the job. The batteries are fine, they last long in the drill and sander and the flashlight. So with that said, i'm looking for a nice set of electric power tools and a very nice smaller sized cordless drill/driver. HOLD ONTO YOUR BOXER SHORTS PEOPLE I"M GOING TO MENTION BRAND NAME TOOLS IN THIS THREAD!!. OOO NOOOOOOSSSSSSSS HE METIONED BRAND NAME STUFF LETS FLAME!!!HE SAID KIMBER!! O NOOOOS My obvious choices for electric tools would be either a Makita or Milwaukee set and i was leaning more toward Milwaukee because they offer 5 year limited warranty and Maktia only offers a 1 year. I would get a recip saw and circ saw, and sander. I'll stick with a cordless drill. As far as a cordless drill/driver, i have read some really good things about Panasonic's 14.4 drll/driver set Panasonic EYC190LZ 14.4-Volt IP56 Li-ion Impact Driver Combo Kit: Amazon.com: Home Improvement Definately would consider other brands I just don't really know anything about them. Thoughts? Comments? Flames?
